    Hello, I got my Note 2 about a week ago and I've noticed that half of the time I press my power button that nothing happens (except the click from the button being pressed down). It's not in tell I apply hard pressure to the button that the phone wakes up or go's to sleep. I was wondering if this is normal or maybe a defect. Thank you

    Restart the phone and see if you have the same problem. Otherwise exchange it for another one because that doesn't sound normal.

    I restarted even did factory restore, I'm thinking of exchanging even though it's still functional, half the time it works with one click applying normal pressure, but then like I said, the other times I have to apply hard pressure (which is probably isn't good for the button) or click it more than once which is very annoying. Only had this phone for a week, that makes me sad.

    When you look at the power button does it seem to be either recessed into the phone or at least flush with the side of the phone? I have roughly the same problem and my power button is slightly recessed into the side of the phone. The power button on my wife's GN2 stands proud of the phone by about a millimeter.
