I purchased my 10.1 2014 8 days ago and home button gives an unhealty click sound when is press it, it feels like if it is getting stuck under bezel for a moment. It also gets completly stuck under bezel if i move it slightly towards screen ( Button does not comes back up)

About the power button, it is harder to press than the ones on retail stores (about %50).

Can anyone reproduce such as examples ? (especially home button) i will be taking my unit service if it is not a common thing.

My home button does not behave like that no matter how hard it is pressed. The power button feels like the volume rockers and not harder to press.

Mine does not do this. Home button is firm, but not hard to push. No sticking or wiggle present either. (Black, US P600 Wifi)

i have this home button "problem" (in fact, this is the second device)... maybe some units came with this problem for example ... the units released from october 2013 to december 2013...

it's not big deal but it feels like cheap build quality for an expensive device...

thank you for answer. Which color was your device ? Mine is white but i can switch to black if problem does not exists there. I also agree that it feels cheap. I bought device this month with latest updates already installed (I guess it is a new production).

My home button has a lot of travel and a click when pressing but I don't have any drag or sticking.

My power button is not hard to press but I do notice that it works best pressed in the center, if you don't it seems to rock.

My home button on the Tab 3 10.1 isn't as smooth as all my other Tabs including the Note 10.1 2014 but it doesn't get stuck.
