    HTC 8X
    on the back,i noticed that when i squeezed, put pressure, right below the camera, above the HTC logo, the plastic actually caves in a little bit and makes a sound like a hard cushion is inside of there.

    is this just my phone or is the phone-wide?

    if you have the 8x can you let me know if yours does the same?

    pooooost

    also the screen isnt completely flush with the body, if i squeeze the phone on the sides and corners it aligns and moves pretty easily, is this also
    phone-wide or just me?

    Reminds me of the guy who tells his doctor "It hurts when I do this," and the doctor says "Then don't do that."

    It is interesting to know if this is wide spread. A phone with those kinds of issues is not good.

    It's fine. You're pushing the polycarbonate shell into the RF shield. It's not "mushy and weak," it's a result of a layered design.

    If you squeeze and twist the phone, it will also make weird noises and eventually break. If you throw an anvil at it, it will make a "krunch" noise and shatter. Etc., etc., etc.

    I just hard pressed below my camera and I heard nothing (except for my thumb sound).
    However I hardly doubt it is mushy. You might have some air or something inside. If I tap around the battery it sounds like beneath the cover is something hard, however not near the camera.

    My Phone feels sort of flexible. But this is by design. When I press,my S3 or One X ot feels like this too. Combination of materials, unibody etc etc. My iPad feels exactly the same by the way. Nothing to worry about. Your device is unfortunately not so unique ;)

    I had to talk a friend down off the ledge... she was beside herself when she noticed that the glass on her iPhone 5, when light is reflected on it, shows that the glass wasn't perfectly smooth, but slightly rippled. Like all glass ever made. :)
