    Its super slippery on both sides so a case of some kind is a good idea. I actually find it more comfortable to hold with a case on.

    I have noticed it does get very warm but apparently for some reason that subsides after a while. Battery life is decent.

    There are some quirks that those coming from an iPhone might have to get used to, but if you are coming from another android device, you will be fine.

    Overall its a really nice device. Super fast, really nice screen, feels solid etc. I'm really happy with it so far.

    Thanks!!! I just ordered myself those screen protectors, and my cases should be here at the end of the week.

    Here are the two cases I ordered from Amazon

    Hopefully the phone will show up on Monday

    Nice!

    A guy I work with has the Optimus G with a flipcase. It's really nice, actually. The only problem he has with it is that it's hard to use the camera with the flip there in the way. Other than that he loves it. Anyway, you have the other case if you want to switch for a bit.

    Well, I just checked my UPS tracking on my phone and it is showing "Arrival to Dartmouth" and "Out for Delivery"! Woohoo! I'm actually going to get my phone! This isn't just one really long dream. Lol.

    On Friday mine said In Transit to Mt. Pearl, NL, and had wings, indicating it was traveling via air.... However, today it says its in New Brunswick, which makes me think its travelling via ground. I'm a bit rotted, had hoped it would be here now. Looks like the original date it will be!

    Hopefully you get your phones today! Keep us posted!!

    Packagemapping seems to sometimes mistakenly say items are shipping by air when they aren't. Still 1000x better than UPS own tracking which is kind of sad.

    Mine just arrived after a long wait...




    ...and there are 2 ugly yellow marks about the size of fingerprints at the bottom of the screen (pixel discoloration mostly visible on lighter color background).

    I SWEAR I HAVE THE WORST LUCK EVER!

    Oh wow! They actually show up in the picture! I'd be so frustrated at this point if my phone showed up in less than perfect condition. You should call Google Play CS right away! They'll probably priority ship a new phone right away. They have a stock pile for such circumstances

    I'm in Quebec City Canada (my shipment actually came out of nowhere on Friday, but since I wasn't expecting it I missed it so got it today instead). I just got off the phone with the play store and they are going to send me a replacement. I have 21 days to return this phone.

    AND YES THEY SHOW UP ON THE PICTURE BUT THEY LOOK WAY WORSE IN PERSON!

    No camera rattle, or any rattle that I can make out.

    She's fast and my One S is no slouch.

    You know what? I'm noticing some slight discolouration on the bottom of my screen as well...

    It's just one tiny spot, but if it doesn't go away in the next day or two I'll have to ask for a replacement.

    Well, the spot already seems to have disappeared. I had to put the phone down for a bit and in that time I can't notice it. We will see. Heh

    I notice a bit of rattle, but only when I shake front to back, rather than side to side. Apparently it is normal and I'm not too concerned about it.

    This is indeed a fast phone otherwise. My old phone was an og galaxy s captivate so its like night and day.

    Wow. Yeah, that would be a major leap in speed. I used to have the Fascinate, which is pretty much the Captivate, I believe, and while it was a decent phone it is getting a little long in the tooth now. Hehe.

    I just noticed that rattle. Lol. It isn't anything to freak out about. I'm too happy to have this phone to worry about a little rattle. It's not like I shake the phone in my ear ever.

    I read on the following link that this may be due to the glue in the device not completely setting in, so it should go away after a while... the good news is that google has amended their warranty rules and have allowed returns / replacements for manufacturing issues for up to a year.

    Some LG Nexus 4 units may suffer from screen yellowing

    The fascinate is the same phone you are right. I had that dinosaur even after an early upgrade from an HTC magic that couldn't make a phone call. The captivate was a nice device but rogers expected me to wait another year before I can get an upgrade.. No more contracts for me. Its all nexus all the time from now on.

    Yeah, that phone was lag fest, to be sure. I always forget that I rooted and flashed a custom ROM (Voodoo), which made that phone scream, at least for the time. Needless to say, if you are running stock you will be in happyland when the Nexus arrives. Lol
