OCD troubleshooting :

- Is it loose ? Yes ==> Does it Rattle ? Yes ==> Exchange No ==> Keep it (not worth the risk of getting unflush screen or dead pixels if everything else is perfect)

Haha here was my thinking..
Is it loose? Yes.. Does it rattle when I touch the upper right side of the screen like my n5? No.. Is it worth exchanging and risk getting one that has more issues than just a little loose volume rocker? Hell no..

When I press VD it gets stuck. Makes it difficult to take screenshots, control the volume and enter recovery. Quite infuriating.

explanation
i got my brand new m8 a week from today, everything perfect, checked the phone for any imperfections when i unboxed it and i seemed well.
the next day i went out, kept it in my pocket and took out the free silicon case that it came with and noticed this strange MYSTERIOUS loose volume rocker that everyone is dealing with.
googled the issue and found this thread, and after thinking this is not such a big deal i decided to ignored it.
yesterday i noticed it's not as loose as was before and i took a closer look at the thin frame around the volume button and i have to mention that mine was rock solid when i took the phone out of the box.
the thin frame around the volume button was just a little, barely noticeable, curved and this, suddenly explained everything.
the m8 is quite a big phone, very tall, almost hanging out of the pocket. I also ride a motorbike and when i have it in my pocket i feel it kinda squeezed. Some of you said this issue is a quality check fail of the manufacturer but this phone being made out of aluminium which is easily maleable, has it's flaws.
I just used a thin cleaning cloth to cover it and not scratch it and used a thin and hard object, such as a pen made of metal or something and while keeping it sideways to press down on the frame and straighten it up a bit and voila, ISSUE SOLVED.
hope this helped other guys like me before swapping them out for new ones which afterwards this would still come back.
sorry for my spelling, i'm not native english and maybe could've done better but i have to go to bed now. CHEERS

I have the same issue. Loose a bit but it's ok. Here in Greece is difficult to change this one with other so I have to live with this problem

Hate to dig up an old thread, but any recent M8 buyers experiencing this? I just got mine a few weeks ago and am within the return period from Amazon, and I'm thinking I'll get another. It's really starting to get to being annoying in every day use.

Just made a quick video of it here.

Wondering if I'm just unlucky or if maybe it's an earlier build? Or if they've been resolved or not. The demo unit at Best Buy was much more solid, and this was right out of the box.

I had a very loose power and volume button on my first one, which I got around September too. Got a unicorn beetle case and all was well, until I realised the reason my battery kept dying so quickly. The power button was so loose it kept turning the screen on in my pocket, and I keep my phone in my jacket pocket. So just got a replacement last week, and it seems to be ok for now. A little bit loose, but not rattling yet.
