defect in glass
I finally got my N4 and while sitting on the counter I noticed that in the right light you can see a defect in the glass. You can only really notice it with the screen off and if you catch a reflection the right way. Its almost like there's a dent in the screen but there isnt one. You can see the way the light reflects off of it.
I was curious if any one else has seen this reported. It's right where the unlock button is, more or less. It also is where the phone gets most hot...not sure if that's the cause. It seems like a strange coincidence if it is. It doesn't really negatively effect the use of the device, but it can't be unseen. It bothers the hell out of me though. I'll probably eventually do a warranty claim, just seeing if it's a fluke or known. Thanks

I'm not sure if it will show up in a picture but I'll try. You can only see it by shifting it and seeing how the light reflects different.

Re: defect in glass
All it means is that the display glass isn't perfectly flat. Considering the top glass is the first surface of a multi layered lamination stack, I don't think small variations in flatness are a problem.

I didn't do the exchange for that issue along as I don't feel any difference using it, however it does effect how the on screen buttons look (faint outline). My battery life is horrible. Around 6 hours with 2 hours of screen time... that's what the exchange is for
