    I'm not particularly bothered, but I can feel the corner (bottom right) move up & down slightly if I press on it, and it clicks as well when this happens.

    Again, not particularly bothered by this but do you think Apple would want this unit back? I already had one that they demanded back due to a dead pixel so I hesitate to ask them directly, especially since it's fairly fleeting.

    I don't think they would force you to return it. If it doesn't bother you just keep it. You have a 1 year warranty (assuming no AC+) if it eventually bothers you.

    Well they wouldn't, I just am not sure if it's even worth asking them about. Don't feel like wasting their time. :eek:

    Well it's cleaely a defect. There should be no deflection in the display and glass surrounding it. If you take it to a Genius, I'm pretty sure they'd replace it no questions asked. That's their job. As consumers, it's our right to demand quality out of the products we purchase...especially at the price points of these phones.

    Just noticed the same on mine, bottom right corner and bottom left corner. Oddly, I had the very same thing in the first iphone 6 I picked up, but in the top left corner. That one got exchanged for a plus, and then back again.

    Odd to get the same issue twice.

    The bottom right corner of my phone clicks too. Doesn't do it too much with a case, but naked, will click all the time.

    Keep it and return it right before your warranty expires for a brand new phone mid contract. Mine does this too, but it's also bent.

    This.
    I will do the same. Mine clicks in the bottom right corner and I thought about getting it replaced but since getting a refurbished phone is always a little bit like playing the lottery and it’s not an issue you notice if you don’t look for it I think I will just ignore it and have Apple replace the phone when I want to sell it...

    Yup, I've been through four iPhone 6s for various reasons, and all of them have clicked and moved very slightly at the top left, over the volume buttons.

    Just the way they're made, I guess. :(

    I had this on my Ipad, It is probably due to you dropping it or the phone being under pressure which has caused a buckle / structural fracture and when pressed will click in and out of it's mount

    No, it's clearly a design fault, since it's been the case with all four iPhone 6's I've been through, none of which were dropped or mishandled in any way.

    I've noticed the same issue with my iphone 6 as well. It's mainly when I'm playing some kind of action game that requires a quick press on the corner of the screen.
