    I recently noticed that my ip6+ had a loose screen on the top left hand side (when I pressed the screen there it would make a click sound) have sent it back to apple and receiving a replacement device tommorow :) :) just wondering if anyone else has had this problem????

    It seems like this is caused by very slight bending on that side of the phone.

    I was about to say the same. The effects of bend-gate has caused loose screen-gate. Will these gates ever end?

    nope
    i have the loose screen issue on the same spot but no bend. externally anyway.
    i think the fault is in the fact that the aluminium is not an exact fit to the glass and hence the glass has to bend a certain way to accomodate, hence the 'loose'-ness.

    Mine doesnt 'click' so I'm keeping it. This problem has been here since the iphone 5 and I don't see it going away. most phones have it so I'd rather keep mine rather than have another phone that may also have it, and plus another potentially more annoying issue.

    I think the chances of getting a bad phone are overstated in the forum. I'd be concerned about getting debris or moisture in the phone if there is a gap. But there's nothing wrong with keeping it if you're OK with it. :)
