    Default Nexus 5 case is coming apart

    Is anyone else having their nexus 5 case snap apart?

    Mine did this on the top of the phone and on the bottom, where the case pieces come together.

    I was able to snap both times back into place, but I don't know why it came unsnapped?

    well the first guess is that you dropped it at some point...

    I've seen similar things happen on other phone by simply carrying the phone in a pocket. Put a CD or DVD in your pocket, then sit down and look at how much the CD/DVD bends.

    It could have dropped or been put into an awkward position in a pocket.

    it definitely was not dropped.

    between this, the loose buttons, and GPS problems wondering if i should contact Google about a replacement?

    Regardless of the cause of the case coming apart, it's definitely something I would talk to Google about. Hopefully you can get a replacement without too much hassle.

    just called into UK customer support.

    they pushed back initially on replacing the device due to just the rattle loose button problem, even after i mentioned that other people have been reporting that they are getting replacement devices for this problem. but when i reported the case coming apart they acquiesced and are sending me a new phone.
