    Screen is cutting my thumb

    Ok this is probably going to sound nutty... lol
    When I pull the notification bar down on my dx ... I tend to go up to the top middle of the screen where it says "motorola" ... I noticed something similar to paper cuts on my right thumb ... I guess the glass screen is raised a tiny bit and its cutting my thumb.

    I love my dx I just think this is a funny design flaw or something. I'm trying to retrain myself to drag the notification bar from the corner.

    Has anyone else noticed this with the raised glass? I have a case on it but wonder if a different case would prevent this.

    Why do you go to the top of the screen to swipe downward??? You aren't supposed to do that.

    You can swipe down ANYWHERE on the screen to bring down the notification bar. I usually swipe down in the middle of the phone.

    No design flaw; you are just doing it incorrectly.

    My glass is flat my finger can catch on the plastic lip for the hole for the speaker. But I never go up that high so it is not a problem.

    I know this probably isn't the answer you are looking for, but if you install ADW Launcher from the market, you don't have to reach all the way to the top of the screen to pull down the notification bar. You can pull straight down anywhere on the screen and it pulls down the notification blind. It's very handy.

    I've never heard of this happening before and it definitely is strange. I tried to repeatedly swipe my thumb over where you said you drag the notification bar down from and see if I got any cuts but my thumb was fine. You said you have a case on there, are you sure that the case isn't cutting your thumb?

    Edit: this only works from a home screen, not from apps obviously.

    I have to go to the to otherwise I just scroll.
    Basically I have been going up to the notification bar and dragging down from the top/middle and I am hitting the speaker or mic area above the word motorola.

    Coming from the d1 there wasn't as much of an indent up there.

    No biggy, just something I noticed and wondered if others noticed too.

    No its not the case, its the indent where the speaker is located. I think its just the way I did it with the d1 but am trying to retrain myself to drag down from top corner so I don't hit that spot.
    This happened over 10 days so its not something I really noticed until I started to pay better attention.

    I have to touch the notification bar and swipe, if you can bring it down from the middle of the screen then how would you be able to scroll through sites or programs?

    He must be using ADW Launcher. It allows you to do this, but only on home screens, not within apps.
