    Hey everyone just thought I could get an idea or the amount of screen play everyone experiencing. It seems as though the build quality is more solid than the original but on par with or slightly better than the plus versions, aside from the nice cosmetic improvements. I am also experiencing some screen play but not a ton. The top half moves 1-2mm in either direction on the bottom of the display but the top seems pretty solid. This is slightly more exaggerated when the screen is open as the loose connection on the bottom is the only part in contact with the phone and therefor more pronounced. Anyway I still have a few days to exchange my new phone for another new phone replacement but dont really want to go through the hassle if I'm just going to have the same results. Thanks for your help!

    you're supposed to have a little bit of room with any slider
    the 1-2mm is quite normal, and if it didn't have a bit of play i'd actually be worried..

    Mine is less than 1mm at the bottom left hand side of the phone. Not NEARLY as bad as my original Pre. (2-4mm on the top)
    W370 -> 3500c -> Instinct ->Pre -> Legend -> Pre 2 -> Bold 9900 -> iPhone 4 -> iPhone 5 -> HP Pre 3
    Rogers -> Fido -> Bell Mobility ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->

    1mm at bottom. Zero play at top,

    Only loose bit really is the back cover, which is annoying.

    Might do the folded paper trick, like on my Pre- to get the touchstone working.

    I can't measure it, but if I could it'd be 1-2 mm or less. There obviously has to be some wiggle room, so I don't consider this oreo effect.

    Less than 1 mm here, barely noticeable.

    Sorry for the pathetic attempt at humour. Screen play - get it?
