    So I though I'd share my experiences on here with my recent Nexus purchases.

    - First off I bought a Nexus 7 16GB - This suffered from horrendous screen lift and creaked like a vintage floorboard when the left side of the screen was used!!

    - Exchanged the 16GB 7 for a 32GB, this was fine apart from the weird marking on the left side of the screen (see below link for thread) my wife now uses this device as she's not as picky as me!

    - Bought a Nexus 4 16GB, had it a day and suffered the horrendous earpiece distortion, even calls on half volume were suffering from a really bad high pitched vibrating noise on calls.

    - Replacement 4 is coming tomorrow so hopefully this will be a sorted device with no issues.

    my first experience was with a iPhone 3G, then the 3GS an finally an iPhone 4, had no issues with any of those devices but just got bored of iOS and the Nexus range appealed as a good replacement.

    In now way am I trolling or knocking the Google devices a I plan to carry on using the Nexus 4 as long as I get a good one, it just seems that you have to go through a few before you find a good one.

    All the best

    That's a bummer, man. Just sounds like bad luck. Maybe you're due--go buy a lottery ticket!

    I'm with B. Diddy. It's unfortunate, but it does happen. You will get a good one though, hopefully sooner rather than later.

    I remember reading the reports of the quality control measures at Foxconn's plants for the iPhone, and how the failing rate for iPhone 5's was initially very high. Apple's production and supply chain has a fairly good quality control record, and even when something does get into the hands of a consumer they tend to be quick to rectify the problem.

    Yeah, pretty sure i have just been a little unlucky. The wife just text to say my replacement Nexus 4 has arrived so I'll be able to give it a good try out when I get home from work later.

    Fingers crossed it ain't a lemon!!

    So, the new Nexus 4 arrived yesterday and.............................it's fine, no issues to report with this one so it seems to be flaw free from what I can tell.

    Now I just need to enjoy it!
