    Anyone else receive their Nexus with a load of dust / dirt behind the screen where the front camera sits?

    I've tried using an air duster but had no luck getting rid of it.

    Reckon I could get a replacement N4 due to this issue?

    I actually just returned mine for this. Plus the proximity sensor doesn't work very well.

    Well if your camera isn't affected by it, don't worry about it. It probably get there because you put it in your pocket

    I returned it in the end. Got the replacement today. It didn't seem to affect the camera but I thought if I'm gonna live with this phone for 12 months or so I want it to be right. I know it's a cheap phone but I expect it to ship without a load of crud behind the screen. The battery was also shocking so hoping for better this time round.

    I actually wish there was a way to block that camera. I used a small, black-colored thin plastic on my old Sensation 4G, but that was facilitated by the back casing overlapping the top front of the phone, holding the plastic tightly and unnoticeably.

    Yes, I just sent it in for repair/cleaning. Hopefully it's just an isolated manufacturing fault (poor isolation or something) rather than design error.
