    I guess it would cost you around about $20.

    Sure, that won't hurt at all. First contact LG and see if the device is covered under warranty. if not, then see if there is any other service repair company in your area to take care of the fix for you.

    You also could try a case. Sometimes a case's button nub, or whatever it's called, magnifies finger pressure.

    The ringke fusion case makes the power button very soft. Same goes for the bumper.

    If you bought from Google play, RMA?
