    Default loose buttons?

    Is this a common thing with the X? I noticed that the front buttons have quite a bit of room to move. They feel like the volume rocker on the original Droid.

    I don't know if it's my OCD or what, but why does Motorola make such a high end phone, but attach such loose buttons?

    I still love the phone, but after having soft buttons on both the Droid and Incredible, they feel out of place.

    Now that you pointed it out, my buttons do have some up/down wiggle to them. But they feel secure enough that I won't worry too much about them.

    I wouldn't worry about it unless you were actually trying to take them off with pliers or something

    I can definitely jiggle mine up and down just a bit, but I have no worries that they might fall off or anything.

    Don't worry too much about it. Usually, physical buttons have some movement to them. I don't think that its going to be a big problem.

    They are fine for me too. I think the slight travel they have actually makes them feel more natural.

    They are not loose; this "play" was designed in.
