    How much lateral movement should the Pre have when closed? I've watched videos on YouTube of extreme cases, and I know mine isn't really bad, but how much are they supposed to have? I assume there will be a little simply based on the fact that the slider is only affixed in the center.

    Are you referring to the "oreo" effect?

    Yes...but specifically how much is normal? Meaning how much play would a phone that's not worn have from the factory that's acceptable?

    mine has about a 1/16th of an inch, and i got it a week ago.

    was going to swap it out last night, but the one they opened up (brand new was worse), the one in the store was about the same (display), i went to another store and it was worse then mine.

    Cool, thanks...so just a bit is normal then I guess. That's about how much mine is, 1/16th or so.

    yeah, im a little ocd, but once i saw how bad the other phones were i got over it.

    i kept reminding myself that some play is good, because its a slider phone.

    ive heard alot of folks describing the twist alot worse then 1/16th''

    I remember when I got my first Sidekick. It was like a rattly AK47 right out of the box. Freaking Tank of a phone though! I can't count the bounces off concrete that thing endured and just kept on trucking. I remember once it fell out of my pocket and went straight off the deck landing on concrete about 10 feet below. Hit so hard the actual screen came apart. I put it back together, but had this one metal part I never figured out where it went. Worked fine without it....LOL.

    If the Pre turns out to be anything like that phone's reliability i'll be a happy camper. Sidekick aside (I always thought it was ugly so I didn't bother trying to make it pretty) i'm typically very OCD about my stuff, I think moreso about this phone simply because it's so beautiful.
