I bought the iPhone 7 (jet black) a few months ago and just recently I noticed that the up volume button is slightly more in the into the body the down button. When I have no case on it I have no problems with it, but with a case on it I have to push a little bit more to raise the volume. And since I have the jet black version I rarely use it without a case. Should I take it back to the Apple Store?

mine is the same, it functions perfectly but there's a super small difference
Mine functions okay without a case, it isn't really noticeable then, but as soon as I put a case on it i have to use a lot more force, and it is getting really annoying

Yes take it back & have it check. Most likely will be replaced/ repair for mild defect but still covered under warranty.

Get it fixed while you still can, then turn on assistive touch and never use it again. Get used to using assistive touch because its the only way to keep your device from falling apart over time.

I've been through several iPhone 7's too because of this issue, but I was told at the Apple Store that the reason the bottom button is slightly higher is because there is more re-inforcement as the bottom volume button is the one used for holding to reset now etc as opposed to the home button.
