    Hello all, has anyone else noticed if their Pixel 3a is warping? When laid screen side down it is not flat and rocking back and forth from corner to corner. You can hold it up and tell it is twisted and not right. I have never before had a phone do this. I returned the first one for the same issue. Thanks

    I've not noticed that with either my Pixel 3 or Pixel 3a. You don't carry your phone in a back pocket, do you?

    The battery is bulging? Is the phone showing any signs of splitting, as well as the deformation?

    No front pocket only. I've never had a problem with any other phone. Disappointing because other than this issue it's a great device.

    None that I could tell. It's also not in my front pocket for very long during the day. Both 3a phones I have had have done the same thing.

    My Pixel 2 isn't completely flat, and never has been. It something you'd only notice if placed on a flat surface and actively rocked, and in the case I use is completely unnoticable. I put it down to an inherent risk with a design that's very thin and very flat.

    I checked the replacement 3a and it was perfectly flat. Within a week it was not so that was kind of concerning. It probably bothers me more than most. Thanks to all for your input.
