Hi folks,

I wonder if its just me who noticed after putting on my Apple 5s Leathercase, that the Sleep-Wake-button is not as "clicky" as the volume buttons.

Anyone can confirm that?

Without the Case, the Clickyness (nice word haha) is about the same.

You are correct, and the feel of the sleep/wake button can be very hit and miss on the leather cases from Apple. On my red case, the button felt good and responded well, on my replacement black case it felt a lot mess responsive.

I've now reverted back to a naked 5s, as after all I want to show off the latest and greatest lol. :D

What I found is that when I first put on the case it was not clicky at all. After the leather wore in a bit it became more clicky (but still not as much as with no case), as the leather became less stiff.
