    Curious as to if any of you got your Nexus One and it had some sort of hardware defect such as dead pixels, dust under the screen, etc...

    Sound off in this thread.

    I'll sound off:
    I've found absolutely nothing wrong with the build quality of this phone.

    It feels solid like a tank in the hand, the OLED display hasn't exhibited any dead pixels and generally it feels like it could take a beating (haven' tested this..!!).

    Long story short -- I'm amused because my news applet keeps popping up stories with headlines to the tune of "nexus one huge effing dissapointment", however if you read the body the point is:

    Sure, the Nexus one is the fastest android cellphone with the most vibrant screen. Sure it's backed by Google and will most likely remain on the cutting edge of OS updates. BUT -- some people (ok, a bunch, but I'm not one of them) are having 3G issues, and _oh noez_ Google didn't do _enough_ with this phone to make it worth while.

    Ok -- I've gone on a tangent; it's late and I'm tired.

    tl;dr:
    Built like a rock. No issues whatsoever.

    No issues here either. Built very well. In fact much better than I thought it would be built just from looking at leaked photos ect, which did not do it any justice.

    Huge thread on XDA about dust under the screen and people having their phones swapped out. HTC claims it's a known issue - I bet... either way it boggles my mind how this happens to devices like it's so tough to make sure the screen is sealed properly...

    Dust under the screen definitely reminds me of RIM's faulty design of the Storm.

    my Nexus One seems to be solidly built... no hardware or quality issues noted yet... very impressed with it... so much more so than a BB 9700 that I had for a few days...

    as much as i like my iphone - had a 2G that died an untimely water death on a snowboard trip, and then a 3GS to replace it... i think the Nexus form factor feels better in hand... the shape, the texture especially! (i will say, i like my 2G iphone MUCH better than the 3G/3GS "slippery bar of soap" form factor... the Nexus brings back some of what I like about my 2G)...

    how the hell is dust getting under the screen?? from the factory? or defective sealing?

    i hope it doesn't happen...

    Some directly from the factory and others get it because the seal around the screen is not sealed properly. This has been a huge issue with the latest HTC devices and is not uncommon in some other devices. Just a LOT with HTC...

    Same here, no build quality problems at all on mine. Works as good as I thought it would.

    i hope the dust thing doesn't surface on mine... that sucks!!!

    (and that's the problem with a mail order phone with no local store outlets... a major pain to return...)

    I actually am having my phone replaced as the day I got it it started rebooting itself sporadically, 5-6 times a day. I love the phone, and HTC offered great, fast support. Just too bad I got a one off hardware issue.

    ditto - no complaint whatsoever. Awesome phone. I don't know why the news and blogs have to report only the negative stuff. Story of the world these days.

    Hi, after some time with the Nexus one now, do any of you guys have hardware issues? Other question: It seems to me that HTC has solved the dust-issue since there are no recent reports of it. What's you opinion?
