    Tried a Storm at the local Verizon store and instantly noticed the "harder to press on the edges" complaint posted my some. Pressing down there was no noticeable click, but upon release It would "click" back up. This only happened around the edges, in the middle it worked fine. I left disapointed.

    Went back hours later to give it another shot and a second Storm was now on display. This one clicked nice and evenly everywhere. Much more satisfying!

    My question is; how does the sure press respond on YOUR device?

    Thanks!

    From some of the reviews I have read this is a common issue since there is one main button in the center of the device.

    The earlier HW has a different key dome, so make sure you actually play with a lastest HW rev.

    I know I've read the same things, but out of the two Storms I tried one clicked great edges and all, the other not so much.

    What I want to know is what are Storm owners experiencing with their screens.

    The backspace button area of the screen in landscape mode was hard to press at first but its working better now as I break it in.

    Trade it in for new! It is soooo much nicer with the uniform click across the screen.

    So did we get bad hardware versions or are they all like this? How can you tell what hardware version you have?

    My corners are nice and supple, but my Q & A buttons on landscape are pretty difficult to press. Not impossible, but difficult -- kind of slows down the cadence of my typing.

    Have the exact same as above... No problems at all at the corners and the portrait mode sides... Only Issue I have is in landscape mode where my left thumb would rest (left side middle), takes a little more effort to click here.

    I was just thinking, do you guys have the screen protectors on? Mine is a little too low which could be causing friction at the edge of the screen although I didn't notice it until I read this thread. It's a thought.

    Does anyone know what is the newest hardware version and how we know which version we have? My screen is very hard to press on one side, and if I can trade it in and get one that works better, thats what I want to do.

    Someone smarter than me please help?!?!?!?

    I'm having the exact same issue: the bottom left and right corners are downright unclickable. I have to press very hard to make them function. What's verizon's policy on returns/exchanges? I bought it from a direct reseller, so its not an official store.
