Hi,

Just received my M8 and the first thing i noticed picking up the device is a rattling sound. Its already noticeable when i gently move it.

Its very loud when i shake it.

See the video (turn your volume all the way up please) :

Any more people having this ?

It is the power and/or volume button slightly loose. Put your finger on the buttons just enough to hold them stable, then see if the rattle goes away. Seems to be a pretty common problem.

It's the power button. Slightly annoying, but nothing big.
