    Just noticed today that my power button no longer sticks out from the side of the phone like it did. I've had the phone for about ten days. Prior to today, the volume rocker, power button, and camera button each stuck out from the body of the phone the same distance. Today the power button is almost flush with the side of the phone. It still seems to work fine. Anyone else notice this?

    Mine seems to have gotten "looser" as time goes on. Hopefully it will not continue to get progressively worse.

    Mine is also not the same distance out as the volume and camera buttons. However it's not loose so right now I'm not considering it as a defect.

    I just noticed this EXACT thing tonight. I could have sworn it stuck out more when I first got the phone. Now my finger barely notices it on the side.

    I just checked mine. Although it is kind of flat since I can push it in till flush without making the click, the click still sounds and feels firm. I guess that's good enough for me.

    The more you come to the forums , the more defects you are going to find in your phone. So, no matter how many times you replace the device you are going to find something. If the power button becomes an annoyance and your 14 days period pass go and communicate with Nokia for an exchange.

    Actually, nobody here referred to it as a defect. More of an observation really. Should we post our observations about the Lumia920 in a different forum, or would this Lumia920 forum be the best place for such posts?

    I noticed this with the power button as well on the last one I had. The first two had power buttons that felt solid like the camera button but had other issues. The last one I noticed the difference in the feel of the button immediately out of the box - it felt loose.

    I wasn't referring to those posts, but just this post. No worries though. Actually, as I have posted about experiencing this as well, I dont believe it to be a defect, but I just hope that it doesn't get sunken in anymore, as its already pretty hard to just feel it with my finger and often times I find myself sliding my finger up to hit the volume button and then back down just slightly to press the power button.

    I went to AT&T store to compare with the Demo devices and all of them have the power button flushed, including the 820

    Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be?

    I just noticed the same thing with my phone. I've had it about a week and the power button is now 'loose'. Meaning, I can press the top and bottom of the power button and it wiggles just a bit. Kind of annoying considering the high quality of the Volume rocker and the camera button.

    I've noticed the same with my 920 - the power button is loose and flush as well as the volume. The camera button is still solid.

    All Lumia phones go through this. Both of my 900s had it and its nothing serious. It won't go in all the way, don't worry.

    My power button makes a little "click" after i've pressed it. These are more cosmetic rather than functional flaws with the product, I wouldn't worry about it that much seeing as most products that have buttons such as these are prone to these flaws. If they aren't present immediately then they are likely to develop over time.

    Thankfully the power button is only needed for lock/unlock or powering on/off the device. It would be far worse if this were one of the main buttons Back, home, search. So all in all if that's the ONLY flaw with the phone's components then we're actually pretty lucky. No backlight bleed, scuffgate, etc. I can live with a less than perfect power-button.

    Does anyone know whether there is a shortcut to wake up the phone without using the power button every time? What about going in screen saving mode having it locked?

    you could always connect it with a charger. That wakes it up to the lock screen, to where you can then just swipe up to go to your home screen without ever having to press your power button.

    Allow the camera button to wake the phone up. Sure, it'll launch the camera, but just hit the home button and you're on your home screen without having used the power button.
