I got my Lumia 928 the day it came out and my home button had the yellow residue covering about 80% of it.
Currently, only about 30% of the home button has the yellow residue now. It has slowly disappeared over time, and in a month or two it looks like it's going to be completely gone. I don't know if this is from vibration or something, but I'm very surprised to see that it's slowly going away.
Has anyone else had an experience similar to this?

The windows logo is made up of 4 squares. When I got my phone, 3 of the 4 squares were covered in "goop". Now, the entire two squares to the right side are completely cleaned of the goopiness. The goop is slowly disappearing.

My home soft key looks terrible when back lit.
That's great that your phone's capacitive buttons are getting a healthier color. So are you saying that your buttons had the splotches there and now do not?"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." - Arthur C. Clarke

In a couple months, the splotches should be completely gone. :)

mine wasn't "blotchy" or dirty looking, but the buttons are definitely unevenly backlit. from left to right the buttons get brighter, so the home button is half dimmer and half brighter, while the back arrow is really dim and the search button is as bright as they should all be. my phone's vibrate rattles a bit but i always turn vibrate off, either way while i'm in the grace period i'm going to exchange it for another. at first it didn't bother me, but after comparing to my friend's whose device has none of these problems, it was noticeable how much nicer and brighter his looked and mine looks defective. i'll be in touch with amazon today to ship me another.

I've had my white 928 for two weeks and the button seems to be improving. I also have rattly vibrate but had such a terrible experience the two times I tried going to Verizon to exchange I'm just keeping this device. If any problems get worse or new ones come up, I'll send to Nokia or exchange under warranty.

amazon must have an old batch that's hit or miss because i've gotten two ugly phones in a row (my buddy got a good one from them, ordered at the same time). one without gunk but the back light is clearly uneven. from left to right the buttons get brighter. back arrow is very dull, home button is half and half, and search button is really bright (probably how they should all be). the replacement's buttons came looking like someone's yellow stained smoker's teeth and with gunk. exchanging again until i get one i'm happy with.

yea do it over the phone. my friend had an issue with his that he bought in the store and instead of going to the store he just called them, explained the defects, and they sent him another in the mail. glad to hear your home button is evenly lit now. maybe just try pressing really hard to snap the glass into the rest of the body to get rid of the gap? if not I would call Verizon corporate and not directly and not deal with a store. those sales people are all a-holes. when my sister went to get hers the guy lied and said her rebate was being sent to her email. she never has gotten it to this day but it was a good thing she went back and dealt with someone else who printed it out for her.
