    As from the day I upgraded from an iPhone 5S to a 6S, I keep making the same mistake: That is trying to change volume with the power button. You can guess why...

    Today I did it again... Pushed the power button several times in a very short period.

    Is this in anyway harmful for your device (like your screen)? Because if so, I need to get to a clinic for this bad habit ;-p

    It took a while to get used to the 6s and I'm still not totally used to it.

    It will not harm anything but it would not hurt if you dropped by the clinic!:p

    I have the opposite problem - when trying to press the power button, my grip tends to press the volume down button instead.

    After nine years of using iPhones with the power button on top, I'm often pressing the power button by mistake just handling the phone as I normally would. Other than that, it's actually more convenient to have it on the side for quickly pressing with your thumb to check the time as opposed to a button on top.

    THIS! I hung up a call today doing that. Given I have an iPod Air 2 I'm finding it really hard to make one way or the other a "habit." Yes... totally a problem from the first world.

    I do this constantly! Drives me crazy, but since the buttons are opposite, it takes work to press the power button without also pressing the volume button.

    Tell me about it.
    I been doing the same thing since day one of my iphone 6 plus.
    Positioned both at the exact same parallel place doesn't make sense.

    It's just poor design, i'm afraid.

    Not your fault!

    I've owned a 6 for a year and now a 6S and this is still a constant problem for me!
