Default Uneven pressure sensitivity

I noticed that the top right corner of my screen (when in portrait mode) requires more pressure with the stylus to do anything. If I turn on rotation and turn it horizontal and try to pull down the notification shade from the top right corner, it'll come down with ease, but in portrait mode I have to press harder.

Would they let me exchange my phone for another? I ordered mine online from ATT, but could I just walk into a store and get another one? I've only had the phone for about a month.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but im gonna say not. Since AT&T now has a 14 day return policy, that includes exchanges, they will most likely make you call the number and get a refurbished unit. I have a really good friend that works at the store and he does alot for me in the way of getting upgrades and such, but he even tells me that beyond 1 or 2 days after that 14 there is nothing he can do.

The "pressure" is in the pen's tip not necessarily the phone.

When you "press" something the pen is what is being pressed.

I'd still take it to an AT&T store or wherever u bought it and see if they will exchange it.

Hmm, it's very odd. Maybe it has to do with my hand position and the amount of pressure I use when I reach across the screen to the left side, and I'm just imagining a difference in pressure when I poke on the right side.

Yes..it's just the way the spen is positioned on the screen...makes it a Lil more difficult for the pen tip to transfer weight to the pressure button inside.
