iPhone 5 front glass panel separating/lifting away from body?
Very oddly, on my iPhone 5, I noticed the entire front panel/glass/LCD/digitizer assembly is separating or detaching from the body at the top right corner.
It appears to be otherwise intact. It is still functional.
I have never dropped the device on anything other than carpet from farther than a few feet.
There is approximately a 1-2mm visible gap between the bottom of the glass panel and the top of the metal surrounding strip.
Pushing the panel back into the body causes the panel to flex a little, but it does not stay in place.
Any ideas about what happened and how it might be possible to fix it?
Thanks for your comment!
I keep it in a Mophie case, in a front pant pocket or a suit breast pocket. Between the rigid case and where I keep it, I don't think the case is bent as the rear panel is quite flat still.
What I meant by "flex" is that I can push the corner down so it is true to the back panel, but it doesn't stay in place.

Is this a good question?
