    Default So does everyone have "loose" buttons?

    As the title states, is this just the way the phone is built, or just a manufacturing defect that has plagued a few devices?
    I've noticed a couple reviews mention that they wiggle and rattle when the phone is shaken.

    I'm getting my X in the mail either tomorrow or Tuesday, and really don't want to have loose buttons... it's the minor details that really irritate me to no end.

    Mine are fine. Yours will be too. It's isolated incidents where buttons are loose.

    I've never had any issues with mine rattling or wiggling.

    It is only isolated events, and surprisingly to me it seems to only really occur with white Moto X's from looking at the reviews.

    I was actually really impressed with the buttons on this phone. Such a positive click. Best I've seen.

    Not sure what the interpretation of "loose" buttons is, but I don't have issue with mine.

    Just checked mine, my power button is slightly loose if I grasp the button with my nail, I can slightly move it up and down and if I shake the phone I can hear a slight rattling, should I exchange it, this Wed is the end of the 14day period.

    Mine were nice and firm in the beginning. Five weeks In, they are slightly loose now.

    Exchange it before it explodes while using your fingernail to move it up and down. I've heard moving buttons (on any phone) with a fingernail will cause a spark in the quantum looping of dark matter and create an explosion....then a black hole.

    The buttons are nice and tight on mine. No wiggle or rattle. I've had the phone for a month.

    Seems to have been the point of humor directed at the levels to which some are going to explore the topic of loose buttons. I didn't LOL, but I smirked when I read that reply.

    Looks like tomorrow is the day for me. I'll be sure to post back with the verdict on my buttons.
    Thanks for the input everyone!

    +100. Like seeing people with the same sense of humor as I And mine don't really "click", so I don't really know if it registers the push until I see something on the screen. Not worried about it though. At least I can't notice it.

    I can't really notice a "click" either but can feel the push being registered. But it's also the same on my ONE so I don't worry about it. But for giggle's, I'm going to use my toenail to see if I can replicate bad signal strength with the existence of toe jam in near proximity.

    My volume rocker is ever so slightly crooked. In other words the volume up is slightly more recessed than the volume down. I wish it wasn't like that but its no big deal and works just fine.

    Mine are slightly loose but doesn't seem to be a functional issue. If you plan to run a case it will be a non-issue anyway.

    My power button can move up and down a bit but that's about it.

    Been using my new woven white Moto X for about 2 hours and I gotta say... This thing is quite awesome. I have owned a lot of phones, but this has to be one of the best already. I'm a complete hardware snob and it passes with flying colors. Buttons are perfect too
