    Which number has the C80? Do I look at the p/n, cssn, or ssn? Also, I have the 32gb version. Are these known to have that issue too? Thanks.

    Sadly there does seem to be some people who are very overprotective of the device as they were lucky enough to get a "good one", but there are also sadly a number of people who comment and are, without cause, rude to the OP, who in most cases, would love to be able to find a unit that was of adequate build quality.

    We didnt buy it simply to return it.We bought it to use and enjoy and our definition of acceptable build quality may be different than yours, but that doesnt make us wrong and you right.

    I cant find any justification for being rude and abusive to people who ask genuine questions about other peoples experiences of a device.Isn't that the purpose of a forum ?
    Rude? Perhaps. Abusive? Oh my god.

    Anyways, if anything, I was being blunt. It's a $200 tablet. if you want a tablet with great build quality, get an ipad. or a $500 tablet. The Nexus 7 is not for you. I find it absolutely ridiculous to exchange 6 tablets. And I find it ridiculous that any store would let you abuse it. That's not me being rude, it's just me being straight up. There's using a warranty/exchange policy, and then there's abusing it. Maybe all 6 (soon to be 7) nexus 7's were 'defective'. whatever. if that's seriously the case, you're the unluckiest guy. ever. EVAR,

    And i'm not being overprotective. my n7 has screen lift. but I don't care. it's not noticeable. it's in a case, and it doesn't affect the touch screen.

    Good day.

    I've only had one N7, a C70 model. I didn't notice any screen lift when I opened it, but after hearing the anguished howls here, I checked and discovered a tiny bit. I pressed it down and it's stayed down since.

    Unfortunately, it's now developed BSS, blown speaker syndrome. ASUS has agreed to fix it, but I confess, you've all put fear in my heart. What if fixing the speaker creates screen lift? Will I be able to live with myself?

    I got my N7 at my local staples the other day. They got a fresh new batch this past week for the holiday push.

    No screen lifts and device is perfect in every way.

    Just a suggestion.

    I don't understand why some people get so aggressive just because others are having legitimate problems with their devices. It's ridiculous to be so overprotective of a certain brand as to excuse such a glaring issue as a major component like the screen slightly severing from the body of the device. It was $200, so what? That may be chump change to some folks, but for others, it may be one to two days' worth of hard work.

    I would have done absolutely the same thing as the OP did. If I detected a problem like that the moment after unboxing the device, I would have had no way of knowing if it would become a problem down the line and I'm not willing to gamble away my 14-day return and exchange privilege just to wait it out.

    The Nexus 7 isn't some third-rate tablet made by some fly-by-night no-name company in China, nor was it marketed as such. It is made by Asus, one of the largest PC vendors in the world, and backed by Google, arguably one of the most powerful tech companies ever. Unless you're willing to concede that buying Nexus products will always inherently come with a "you get what you pay for" caveat, then stop excusing manufacturing problems like these and hold ALL companies (not just some that you happen to loathe) accountable to their customers.

    Well here goes! Have had my Nexus 7 32GB for 6 weeks now, and was well impressed with the performance looks etc, except the casing would randomly creak. This morning I picked up the device to spot a series of fine cracks spraying out and across from one point on the mid left side right across to the other! The machine hasn't been dropped or bent etc, could this have been caused by the screen being too tight, hence the creaking?

    I agree that those who have gone through 5, 6, 7, 8 or more tablets are ridiculously nitpicky and probably the kind of people that are never happy with anything. I got my 32GB for Christmas and there is no "screen lift". BTW it's a CAOK.

    I have a Nexus 7 with a tiny bit of screen lifting. I can't even notice it when it's in the case. I'm perfectly content with it. I'm glad I'm not picky. Makes things easier for me

    I got a 32GB with the ATT cell option a few weeks ago and I was reading this thread thinking "Gee I must be dim, as I don't notice anything at all." Mine's in one of those Blaurex cases with the little tabs but I press on the sides.

    Then I checked and indeed I only have tape on one side of the box and the box has a half-moon cutout on each side. I looked for the C80 code, but couldn't find it, though I notice that my serial number starts with CB0 (and I'm pretty sure it's a B and not an 8). But I don't see any lift at all. Perhaps it's because the cell option ones are all new.

    Hey, how is your screen? Mine is CB0K and the screen contrast is terrible, everything looks terrible! I compared to the display model in the store and the display model was much better. They are all out of 32GB models so I'll have to wait but I'm looking to find a 32GB batch that people are happy with so I can try and get a good one!

    By the way, no screen lift on this one, just badly washed out screen that makes everything look like the colour has been sun bleached out of it!

    I received my Nexus 7 32gb cellular on 7th Jan and today i noticed the back casing started creaking on the left hand side around where the NEXUS is embossed. it is very noticeable when you grip it to hold it in landscape to play games. I put a little pressure there and it seems there is a lot of flex ,which makes the plastic creak , as if there is nothing beneath it to support that side where as on the other side it's quite firm and no creaks. I also sense that in time this flex could loosen the glass as it seems the part of the rear case where the glass is glued seems to be pulling away when pressure is applied in that area as you would do to hold it firmly to play games.
    Having paid 250 including postage I wasn't going accept this standard of build quality so I rang Google support and reported it and requested to return it. The lady who I was talking to didn't understand what the problem was so I demonstrated the creaking sound of the case over the phone. She confirmed she heard it, went to speak to someone, came back and offered me a replacement. I accepted on condition that if the build quality was the same I will return the new one for a full refund.

    The screen lifting out of the bezel 0.5 mm isn't what bothers me. It's that the lift ends up making that side of the screen squishy. If you press on that side, the LCD ripples as well. I've had two (one from the play store, and one from office depot) in a row that had this problem. I dunno why some people never see units with this issue *shrug*

    Sorry to hear you had so much trouble. I like Apple's stuff too, I love my MacBook Air, Mac OS X is fantastic, but iOS doesn't excite me. Luckily my Nexus 7 doesn't have this "screen lift" problem, or any other issues.
