    Hey all. One of my big problems with cases is maybe of the ones I like I find I can't use, because the buttons (most often the sleep/wake button) are incredibly unresponsive.

    I like my buttons to "click" - to make you aware that you definitely pressed them.

    Does anyone have any tips on how to make stiff buttons more clicky?

    Some examples of stiff click:

    Otterbox commuter
    Magpul field case
    Spigen tough armor (power button)

    Cases with good click:

    Speck candyshell
    Spigen slim armor

    Note: Please don't post contending with what my opinion is with button stiffness. I have owned multiples of each of the cases I listed with a problem, and every time I've had bad buttons. You won't be able to change my mind, and it doesn't effect my question.

    besides the usual, it'll break in over time and soften, I've tried dunking said case/silicon in hot soapy water...
