Default [Q] Should my power button be flush with the device?

I already exchanged my device with the 14-day policy for one reason, but the new device I received is perfect except for the power button. its basically completely flush with the top of the phone. The original device definitely wasn't like that and it felt a lot better. I was hoping for some feedback about your power buttons before i give them a call tomorrow.

My power button is flush, but this is my first (and hopefully only) M8. A bit inconvenient, however, I tend to use the double tap to wake the device.

No, both were flush on the M7 and were a pain to locate by touch. Both buttons on the M8 should be proud of the device by about a millimeter.

Thanks for the pic, mine looks nothing like that.
