    Is anyone having issues with a mushy or soft power button? My volume buttons have a very discernible stiffness and clicky-ness to it. My power button has a definite clickyness, but not really as stiff. Takes very little pressure to push the button.

    I think I may be over-analyzing the issue. I did go into Best Buy to test other models and they all seemed to have a less stiff power button in comparison to the volume button. I just don't want it to be an issue later down the line.

    Any thoughts?

    My power button takes just as much force and makes the same click as the volume buttons do.

    Is it in a case or naked?

    Not here. I was surprised that it was so tactile compared to the S5 I had.

    Both. I first noticed it while it was naked. I had a note 3 and "mushy" buttons was a gripe I had. The note 4, however, is the exact opposite. Nice audible click that's very tactile with every press, naked or in a case. You may have an issue. My friend's N4 is identical to mine in this regard.

    I'm not experiencing what you're describing. All of my buttons feel uniform in firmness/clickyness

    I searched the forums, I did not find an answer to my question, and this looked to be the most appropriate thread for my post...

    I've had my Note 4 since Day1, and I only use a case when I break my routine, i.e when I go on vacation or do something I don't normally do... needless to say, i don't drop my phone very frequently, and I cant remember the last time i dropped it. its only got 1 minor nick on 1 back corner, and i dont even think that could be positively correlated with a drop seeing as how soft and prone to scratches the bezel is on the N4.

    Just today the volume buttons, both of them, went mushy on me. its like they are stuck pushed in, so they will not click. however, they still "work"... as in, I can change the volume up and down, however, they are not very responsive, and sometimes bounce back and forth/vol up and vol down when I am only pushing one direction.

    anyone else experience this? anyone fix this issue?

    so sad since I have been in love with my Note 4 up until now!

    Thanks!

    My first Note 4 was fine besides a camera focus issue ... Until it got run over by a car. Then I got a replacement and the power button was fine, everything was good, and now it's got that mushy feel. I am hoping it just goes away, I just finished setting the phone up how I like it, sigh.

    I had this exact problem and it would come and go. I contacted Verizon and they sent me a replacement. Everything works good again.
