    Whenever I slide my keyboard open, it just seems like it is dragging on something too much. And then I went to Best Buy and their showroom droid opend with barely a touch. I know it is an odd question but I can barely shut it using one hand.

    Thanks

    Mine opens pretty smoothly. It does take a bit more effort than the spring assisted ones, but I would still say the motion is smooth.

    Mine is pretty smooth too. There is a small amount of resistance but I think that should be there. I wouldn't want mine sliding open so easily.

    About the one in BestBuy, just think of how many people are opening and closing it throughout the day, it probably has a ton of wear on it already that loosened it up.

    Same here, I wouldn't say silky smooth but very easy. I don't think you want it too smooth that it keep moving on you.

    Have you removed the plastic film that served as a protector from the back of top half?

    mine was smooth with the plastic cover on. I've removed it and it's even smoother now, I recommend you remove it as well.

    That would be my best guess too. With the plastic protector on, my screen slid a little rough, which helped me find the plastic protector in the first place. Took it off and now slides like butter

    What ever you do, don't try to loosen it or even open and close it just to make it looser! Mine was loose when i bought it and it ALWAYS opens in my pocket and makes me think i should be babying it. I can even slide to unlock it and it slides open. BTW: just learned the droid is made of gorilla glass [look it up on youtube] you can take your screen protectors off now!!
