    Curious if everyone's iPad (4) is completely solid in construction or not. When I hold mine in some positions the back flexes noticeably, and I get a slight 'click' sound; like when you glue something and you pull it up off the surface slightly.

    It also has enough flex without pressing stupidly hard to make air whoosh out the headphone jack.

    Is this fairly common with the iPad's, or is mine not constructed as solid as it should be?

    Can't say I've noticed this problem on mine but I haven't really tried pressing it either.

    At the end of the day, if you aren't happy with it - return it and get a different one.

    I noticed this on my original iPad and my iPad 2. I have not noticed this on my iPad mini.
