    hey,

    i was just wondering how sturdy the arced design is? i get paranoid that the arc shape is getting more bent than it should do, ive heard some people say the case is almost unbreakable? is it possible to get a more noticeable bend on it?

    Fairly sturdy. I would give it a 7.5/10. My last two phones was an iPhone which I would give an 8/10 and an nokia e71 which I would give 10/10.

    It doesn't bend which is a good thing. I'm very sure it is breakable. My biggest complaint is plastic squeek if you grab it too hard. I like my electronics to feel non-plasticy and more metallic (like the Nokia above). But it's sturdy enough to live though a few months in my jean pockets without breaking. I also have a soft case on.

    Yea I suppose I just get paranoid that because its already a bent design that the structure is weaker than standard, ive also made the mistake of putting it in my back pocket and sitting down...stupid I know but its a habit lol

    I like to think it's more sturdier than it looks. I have not really found out how strong it is, as I treat my Arc as if it was a new born baby lol.
