Default very slight play in home button - normal?

Just noticed my 2 week old note had very slight rotational play on the home button. It can move a couple of degrees making the left or right side higher than the other.

Is this normal?

Mine has it also. Compared to the N1 and the N2 I owned, the home button seems less sturdy. Also it reacts differently if I push it exactly in the middle or a bit offset.

Goes with the beast I guess

Ok thanks, I'm a bit anal about such things so I feel better that at least one other person has the same

Well, it's not normal, but a lot of people reported this, so...

Have a read through the rather large thread dedicated to exactly this issue: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2471367

In short, it's a normal issue on Galaxy devices.
SM-N9005 International Galaxy Note 3, DBT NB7 Stock
SM-G900F International Galaxy S5, PHN NCE Stock
SM-P905 NotePro 12.2 LTE Black, DBT NC3 Stock

The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it. –Chinese Proverb

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

Thanks. Due to workload I can't read that large thread but if it's normal then I won't concern myself about it.
