Default home button wonky...

Hey all, i received my note 3 earlier today and i looked at the home button and realised it was slanted, i pushed the right side of it up ans it straightened it up but you can move it about by just touching it, anyone else with the same issue?

The button on my S4 is excellent.

Yet that said I would greatly prefer a touch sensitive button as opposed to this Apple inspired old tech mechanical button. I actually read an article talking about Apples influence and the public perception a mechanical button is better. After four, yes four failed iPhone buttons, I dread Samsung's decision.

Why one would prefer a mechanical button right in the center of a beautiful touch screen smartphone is beyond me.

I'd return it since you're in that 15 day period.

Return it. Most carriers are good about such things.

I would be in the store and returning that one right away. Having something slightly out of place, I could probably deal with it, but if I can physically move it in a manner that it's not supposed to move...no good.

just double checking because everyone always says im picky and look for faults lol

i can move the home button around slightly by pushing up or down on it, i can also move it side to side slightly

if i push it in and move my finger i can move the button in all directions, does your button stay still ?
