Default So who has a loose Volume Rocker?

Well one thing that infuriates me is phones that have loose moving parts, power buttons, volume rockers, etc!

And low and behold my SG3 has a loose volume rocker. I'm pretty interested is seeing if it's a wide spread thing, or just pretty much the luck of the draw.

So who's Volume Rocker is loose, and who's is not?

Yeah, mine is

Any 3.5mm plug that I plug in has to be a wiggled a bit for both left and right speakers.

The left seems to be fine, but the right one is the one I have an issue with.

Edit.... I thought you were talking about the 3.5 mm plug..... just ignore me.
