Hi, I just recently purchase a Kindle Fire HDX 7" (4G AT&T 16GB), and I was having a problem with the bezel/backplate not being (sealed?) onto the device correctly.
It's towards the top right of the Kindle, if holding it in portrait mode, with the charging port at the bottom. Pushing on the rubber backing causes a clicking noise, and you can visually see that it is loose.
It concerned me, so I started a chat with Amazon and they sent out a replacement device free of charge. Just received it today, and this Kindle has the EXACT same problem, except I might even say that it is a tad worse as the first one it was maybe about a 2" span that felt affected, whereas the replacement feels like 4"+ is loose. It also makes a louder click.
So my question is, is this a common problem with the Fire HDX? Has anyone else had this problem at all?
I don't mean to be a hassle, and I probably will avoid contacting Amazon about this again and just keep one of the two, and hopefully I won't notice it as much when it's in the case, but it's a little upsetting to me to have paid $200+ for a device that is not properly sealed together.
