    My phones power button is almost flush and I'm worried about it not working in the future. I got it last July and it protruded quite nicely. (Compared to others) Screen broke sent back to HTC and the home button has been sketchy ever since. It works, but does anyone have any ideas as how to to maybe fix it? I'm with AT&T could they possible do anything? Thanks in advance!

    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" as the saying goes.
    You could minimize the use of the power button by setting the screen-on time to a minimum. Then don't use the power button to turn it off; just let it time out.
    Or you could use an app like Shake Screen On Off

    EDIT: Tried Shake Screen On Off, too much effort to turn screen on.

    If it's working I wouldn't worry a whole lot about it being flush. Mine is actually pretty flush as well, had to look after reading your post to see that but... Anyway, without opening the phone and voiding your warranty there isn't anyway to fix it externally. If it's really bothering you I'd say go to any of the provider stores and check theirs out as a comparison, just because I'm pretty sure flush isn't a problem. I'd be more worried if it was unusually sticky, didn't feel like it was springing back, or made an odd click or other sound when pressed.

    On a side note when I got my One I was constantly hitting the power button by accident because it was so sensitive. That is until I got my case.

    My N7's power button is flush but has never been a problem. There are a few apps (Auto Screen On, for instance) that allow screen to activate by tapping, bypassing the power button. I found it to be a bit of a battery hog, but works great.

    Thanks everyone for your input. I downloaded Gravity Screen today and I've yet to hit my power button at all. Also haven't noticed any battery drain. Thanks again!

    here is a tip..
    when the phone is in sleep mode after an extended period, to wake it just place it face down then lift up to wake it
