    Default Backing Not Flush With Surface

    The leather back has some "give" to it if I push on it in certain spots. It is not flat with the back of the tablet, and I can push it in a little bit. It doesn't affect the tablet operating (obviously) but kills my OCD. Anybody else's leather backing not flush with the surface? Wondering if mine got warped somehow.

    Sounds like a defect to me, return it if possible.

    It's certainly not an iPad2 . . . the plastic backing is thin and not glued to the components inside so when you press around on various areas of the back surface it does indeed flex a little. If I press on mine about a half-inch below the samsung logo for example I observe some give of perhaps a half millimeter or so. Not an issue for me, this thing's in a case most of the time.

    If it's visibly warped when laid back up on a table then that's a different issue and as bill-e says perhaps warrants a return.

    It is good to know that I am not the only one, however I wish you didn't have the issue too!

    When laid flat on a table, one of the corners is raised up about a millimeter or two. I think this might be from the first day or two I had it and took it out of a case, and it was locked in so tight that I had to bend the tablet to get it out of the case.

    I also noticed a small bump in the tablet on the backing, when feeling all over the surface, a few inches diagonal up/right from the samsung logo. It's like it is not perfectly flat underneath, probably why the back has some give to it. I hope it's not the battery bulging
