    This thing is a beast!! Trying to pick it up without hitting the power button is a bit of a challenge. I kinda wish they placed the power button on top

    Wanna make it worse? Put it in a case mate naked case. I love the phone, I love the case mate. I hate how much easier it is to hit the power button now.

    I was having difficulty deciphering the power and volume buttons by feel without a case.

    I've actually considered filling down the ridged power button on the case to eliminate this some. Probably do that soon. I love the kickstand feature on the case I use it daily.

    Um, how about 'all the time'?

    Seriously, I probably inadvertantly hit it at least a few times a day, especially because (it being a large phone and all) if I'm carrying it sans pocket, I hold it in the middle. And then there's the phone's notorious slickness - sometimes simply lifting it/adjusting it hits the power button if I'm not paying attention just by my fingers sliding up the outer frame.

    The midway button placement was nice in theory, but I think it's becoming obvious that I'd sacrifice whatever ease of use a lower button provides to keep it a bit more out of the way in everyday use.

    None...but if you do press it.. you have to hold it down for a few seconds before it shuts down. Not an issue.

    Never. And I love where the power button is. I must hold the phone differently.

    No problem for me.. I just double tap it to wake it... Then double tap it to put it to sleep.

    Never. Now I do accidentally sometimes hit the volume button thinking its the power button...

    Maybe like 3 times over the course of a month. Doesn't bother me.

    Several times which turns screen on while trying to replace in pocket or belt holster. Since you can't turn it off and charge it seems a fairly useless button to be so prominently placed.

    Initially quite a few times but I got used to the location and I now have a case on the phone with a ridge separating the power and volume.

    So your power button does nothing when pressed? Or have you flashed your phone which is irrelevant to this particular post?

    I responded to the question which i feel makes my answer relevant. I also added why it wasn't a problem for me by stating why I didn't have to push it by mistake.

    I hit it all the time, I think I'm slowly getting use to it though.

    You came here to brag about your double tap to wake up.

    No.. While I am a fan of rooting.. There's no need to brag. Just offering a way to turn on screen without hitting power button.
