    I've had my S6 for 3 days now. It started out great, but now the home button feels loose and has a rattle when you tap it lightly. It feels very cheap now.

    I've read some reports on other forums, but nothing conclusive. Curious how many folks have experienced this.

    Odd. My home button remains solid as a rock.

    There's a very slight bit of play but certainly no rattle.

    Same here. I can jiggle it slightly with my finger but it doesn't make any noise even if I shake the phone.

    It doesn't make any noise when I shake the phone, just when I tap it lightly or run my finger across it

    This is happening to me too, you need to add a color model option to the poll, from what I read it is related to the black models.
    some already posted a youtube video of the phenomena youtube .com/ watch?v=Y5FoWeDGQZ4 (remove blanks)

    Sad. Annoying, and no one at Samsung doesn't give a ****.

    I'm also having the same issue with my black S6, from reading around at XDA it seems to be related to the black models. My power button isn't firm as well. Disappointed. You can see the home button issue on youtube.

    My home button doesn't move at all, so I'd return those devices with faulty home buttons as the problem will only get worst with more use.

    Mine is black too. Can't imagine what the color has to do with it, but there sure seems to be a correlation. Now I have to figure out whether to trade it in on a new one or just return it and give Samsung a month or two to work out the kinks...

    Seems like it's a very widely known issue with people reportedly exchanging their phone 2 to 3 times and each one having the same wobble.

    It personally doesn't bother me much.

    Still no rattle. Take it in the store and let them check it out.

    I have a black one (Verizon) ... Solid as a rock. This is the most solidly constructed phone I've ever had. Sorry you're having these issues! I'd exchange it for a new one. My ocd wouldn't allow me to deal with that for very long

    Mine was fine for the first week, then it started to rattle for no apparent reason. I will be exchanging it today.

    There has been some discussion of color being a factor, but mine is a white, 64gb model.

    Just got back from the Sprint store. Exchanged the previous S6 due to rattle. New phone was fine out of the box, now, about two hours later: we have rattle. I'm going to give this one more shot, but it looks like I may end up going back to my M8.

    I'm trading my mine in on a new one tomorrow but I'm beginning to believe this is just a natural characteristic of the phone. The button still works exactly as expected, just feels like it came unglued from whatever is below it. It hasn't gotten any worse (it may have even gotten a little better) over the last several days. We'll see what the replacement looks/feels like but It's not a deal-breaker either way.

    I hear you on that, but it's an expensive piece of hardware (I purchased the phone outright), and that plasticy rattle makes it seem cheap. I'm sure there are plenty of people who would not be bothered by it.

    I did check out the demo in the store, and it's button is solid. Given that it probably sees a lot of action, I have hope of obtaining a non-rattle device.

    Quick follow-up, got my replacement phone today and the home button is very solid. Time will tell if it remains that way.

    I had the white one and experienced the same thing.

    So I had the white and the back. I didn't think much of it until this thread, but my white had a higher button that definitely had less play. I will have to keep am eye on this as I decided to keep the black.

    Now on my 3rd S6. My first two white 64 gb had the wiggle. Apparently, you can't exchange the same model of phone with Sprint more than twice. I got a moderately hard time at a corporate store when I tried to get that third handset. The "tech" told me that every almost every model of the S6 he had seen had the same slightly loose home button.

    I ended up getting a white, 32 gb S6 edge, as Sprint was reluctant to let me try a third version of the standard S6. I think they would have caved if I pushed it, but I am beginning to think the loose button is simply a production flaw with that model. I really do like the phone's camera and screen, otherwise I would have just gone back to my M8.

    So far, the edge seems solid as a rock. I've got a few more days until my 14 day trial period is over. We'll see how she holds up.

    Hello!!! I have the same issue with the phone... Got it new and 8 days later I felt the sensation and the sound that something was wrong. The company that sold me the phone told me that they have to take it to the repair store so I wont have a phone for a while. I dont know what is going on here.... I had an S4 for 2 years and It still working good...
