    Which particular clown decided to put the power button directly opposite the volume buttons on the 6+? It is not preferentially sprung so any attempt to adjust volume easily results in the phone going dead. Newton's first law anybody at Apple?

    I've never accidentally hit the power button when adjusting the volume. Had my 6+ since launch day. I use my thumb on the volume buttons which puts your fingers way below the power button.

    While I know some don't, I prefer it on the side, as my thumb naturally rest there when I pick up my phone.

    If your phone went dead you are doing it wrong. Maybe took me a second to get used to it but it has been a non issue.

    Pretty sure if you hit the lock button and a volume button at the same time then the volume button will take precedence (and the phone won't lock).

    Out of curiosity, how does Newton's first law relate?

    I tested this just because I didn't know the answer, and can confirm you're right. I'm betting some, myself included, have in fact clicked both buttons simultaneously and never knew it.

    This happens to me when I try to take picture using the volume up button.

    As in the picture gets taken and the phone remains on and unlocked when the volume up and the lock button are pressed simultaneously?
