    Default Nexus 5 Hardware Revision Concerns

    Hi, I ordered my Nexus 5 from Amazon this week and it's here!

    However, I think it's the very first model with the smaller speaker holes and the phone rattles very slightly when shaken - due to the power button I think.

    Does it matter? Is it actually faulty or is it fine?

    Thanks

    I'm using a 1st run Nexus 5 I ordered on day 1 and it works flawlessly. I wouldn't worry about the rattling unless you spend your days shaking your phone constantly.

    Do you have the rattling power button?

    It moves a little bit if I shake it hard. But I've had my phone in a case since day one and it doesn't rattle at all in the case.

    Pretty much the same here; no complaints.

    Receiving a replacement tomorrow. Can't justify 280 on something I'm not happy with.
