    Anyone else feeling like the power button is going to be the first thing to break on their Droid?

    I'm a very careful/anal user of my electronics (my previous LG flip phone lasted me three years), but I can't help but feel that the power button is already receiving too much extra use. Mine feels wobbly and squishy and I feel like I have to squeeze it extra hard to get it pressed, unlike the easy, solid feeling of pressing the power button on my ipod touch. The button actually rocks back and forth when I move my finger over it.

    Could this just be my particular phone or is anyone having a similar experience? I'd like to know if everyone is happy with the power button to figure out if my problem is unique.

    Thanks

    Battle it will be fine. Would it have been nice to have the button set with tighter tolerances to cut down on the "wiggle"? Sure...but it will be fine.

    I say the volume rocker will be the first to go.

    Some guy on another forum said his phone fell down 10 flights of stairs, the battery flew off, the battery fell out.....hit the concrete and on and on. He put in the battery powered up the phone and nothing broke loose. I would bet the battery wears out first....

    Even if that were so, they would come up with another D/Lable fix for it b4 then. Just like the ole Y2K bug. and yeah, the phone feels solid. I say it will last me my 2 yr contract.

    Win for BattleDroid

    I just had to use some warranty replacement action for my Droid because the power button stopped working so good prediction?

    Of course the day after that issue started happening my Droid is now stuck in a infinite loop of rebooting...

    BUMP!

    My droid power button went kaput. It still works in the fact that it powers on the phone and what not but there is no resistance left in it and I cannot tell if I am pushing it at all. Did nothing to the phone, meaning haven't dropped it, no water damage etc, just stopped suddenly. I got my droid on the day it was released, so like October? 6 months? Not so good droid, no so good. Either way my droid is amazing software wise and I am going to try and get a replacement because it has a year factory warranty so that should be good! Verizon will probs screw me over, but we will try and I will let you know what happens!
