    Does anyone ( rather everyone) using Note2 feel the power button has been placed at a wrong location?
    The reason is, often when you try to use the volume buttons, you tend to press the power button and your application closes!

    When I first got mine, I kinda felt the same way. I would hit either side by accident from time to time. After awhile, I must have gotten used to it & unknowingly adjusted because I very rarely do it anymore.

    I think it should be on top of the phone like my DX2 was and recessed as well- I never accidentally hit that power button. I'm getting used to it, but still occasionally accidentally hit it.

    I like that the power button on the Note 2 is on the side, makes it easy to reach with one hand whether it's sitting in your palm or you're holding it by its edges in the middle. On top would be a pain trying to reach it considering the larger size of the phone. Even with my long fingers, I have to stretch to reach the top edge or have to move the phone in my hand.

    Coming from an EVO4G where the power button was at the top and recessed, I never had an issue hitting it accidently. Being that the device is still new to me, I often mistakenly hit the power button. It'll take some getting used to.

    I prefer the top, cuz that area doesn't get bumped by accident NEARLY as often as the side(pocket, while hitting volume with one hand, while holding with 2 hands)

    Same here. It's one of the reasons I stick with samsung phones. It makes it easier to turn the phone on one handed for me anyway...

    i came from a HTC, and i also prefer my power button up top. I also prefer my volume buttons on the right (i'm right handed). I often hit volume buttons with my index finger when I'm using my phone with a single hand, b/c the phone is so damn big, you really have to grip it hard on the edges.

    I like it the way it is. I hold my phone in my left hand using the flygrip. So it is easy for me to use my thumb to change the volume.

    To turn in the phone, i use the home button, and to turn it off, I use our control and set one of the shortcuts to screen off.

    I rarely use the power button

    I don't have a problem with the button placement so much, but just wish they were recessed a little to prevent accidental pushes.
    Love the GN2, but the ergonomics of the side buttons was poorly implemented. However, the outstanding features of this phone more than make up for it.
