    So I was in a best buy earlier and I was messing around with the phone and I really want one. However the top left placement for the button seems rediculous. Does anyone with the phone and have day to day use have any problems with it? Is it something that's akward at first but becomes second nature soon? Just curious if it's something that would annoy the ever living sh*t out of me every day I had the phone after spending a lot of money on it.

    I've had the phone for a little over a week and I'm already used to it. I dont even think about it any more. The D1's button was on the right, when I went to the X, I had to get used to the power button being in the middle and the menu, home and back buttons were different! I've paid my due's!

    Took me a couple days but I finally got used to the power button and the different arrangement of the capacitive buttons. Coming from d1. If the d1 had the button on the left and the bionic's was on the right everyone would ***** just the same just because its a change.

    Yea i see what everyone I saying. I just think when you have the button on the right Its easier to get to than the left. That is because I'm right handed though. Coming from the Droid 3 I don't mind the button in the middle but it's also a smaller phone.

    I like it much better than it being on the right side. You don't have to push down as hard to turn it on. And I'm right handed.

    As a right hander, I find it easier to reach on the left. At first, I didn't think I'd like it, but once it was in my hand, I loved it.

    How do you find it easier to reach? I'm a big guy with big hands and it's most definitely harder to reach. I hate it on the left.
