I've noticed a few times that I tend to press on the power button of the iPhone 6 Plus. This has caused the power off screen to show up (where you swipe to turn off).

It's not a major issue, but just wondering how soon it'll be before I power off the device by mistake and not realise.

I think Apple could change the behaviour of the button so that when the phone is locked and the screen is off, you have to press the power button once to bring on the screen first and then press and hold the power button to turn the phone off.

Has anyone else noticed they're inadvertently pressing the power button?

I noticed it a while ago when I had a Samsung Galaxy S3 for 2 months too.

I don't have your particular issue but As a new owner of the iPhone 6 Plus I keep trying to press the top of the iPhone where the button was on my iPhone 5s !
