    So I got my black iPhone 5 on launch date and it is completely flawless except for one annoyance (or defect). The power button doesn't click when I press it, it's a soft press. It only clicks if I press it on the left side. The button itself has looks uneven with one side higher than the other slightly. I have tried the iPhone 5s of two friends and there's all have a very audible click.

    As a side note it is also tougher than normal to press the button with a case on. Not too difficult but definitely harder. Should I call apple and get it replaced? Anyone else have this issue?

    So do you think I should get a replacement? My iPhone is flawless, I'm worried about receiving a phone in worse condition.

    If it's useable, I'd wait until the QC situation gets blown over, as you have one year to get it replaced. My Apple store manager sister says they're still arriving nicked and scuffed out of the box and hasn't even gotten the iPhone 5 herself for this very reason.
