    I got my A500 yesterday. I only had a chance to play with it for a bit last night and found an issue off the bat. While holding it in landscape mode, the left side where my fingers hold the device, is a littls quishie or crunchy. It isnt completely solid like the right side. I dont know if mine just has an issue or if its normal due to the backside camera being so close to the edge.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Yeah mine feels pretty solid too. If it is an issue take it back and have them order you a new one if they are out of stock when you go in.

    Hi bro, I don't see any problem regarding the casing/body issue in mine too. Maybe you haven't got used to it?

    I have noticed that on my unit as well. In fact I have the problem on both sides. The plastic and metal parts make a creaking noise when I hold it certain ways.

    i just read the engadet review and they had the same issue with the backside creeking. I am just going to chalk it up as "this is why its 150 cheaper than the zoom" I guess
