    Default broken power button

    I got my nexus 4 from T-Mobile the week it came out so I've had it for a little
    Over a month now. I noticed the power/screen lock button felt cheap and loose. It recently stopped working entirely and I'm currently awaiting a replacement from T-Mobile. Anyone else heard of this ?

    I have read posts about feeling cheap and loose but not about it stopping working besides this post.

    Mines fine but i just got it. Doesnt feel cheap or loose(whatever that means) and it feels good
    Only problem is that the volume rockers are hard to press one direction. Maybe thats just because my case is in the way

    I use a power button widget to cut my button presses in half. Works great and saves the wear and tear on the power button.

    That's just it. I treat this phone like ..we'll its made of glass. I have no case but have yet to drop it . I only use it when I'm out and even then its hardly in my pocket. I'm no saint when it comes to taking care of phones but this one is way to badass to abuse.idk.

    Get a screen protector or a protecting film over the glass or it will be scratched

    Yeah I got ghost armor covering the entire phone, I love it lifetime warranty and amazing protection for 30 bucks because I had to preorder the stuff lol. I just meant like shock and drop protection, all the cases I've seen seem like itll make the nexus 4 too big to comfortably use with one hand.
