    Any one else noticed problems turning the 8S screen on and off since the latest up date? The power button feels right but half the time there is no response. Is it just me? The variability suggest a software rather than hardware issue. Not happy.

    It seems more like a hardware problem. I've had HTC phones in the past that had issues with power button not working, but specifically im not sure about the 8S since I don't own that particular phone.

    Mine hasnt been updated and it started playing up today... Twice the power button has not powered up the phone and then when it did the screen froze. The it took an eternity to get it to swtich off and back on again. Time to call Orange I think...

    I think it was software in the end. All good now. Factory reset and reload from backup and problem still there. Reset and set up from scratch fixed the problem but means I never worked out which app was causing the issue.
