    I'd really like to get a Nexus 9, but it seems like there's no end to the hardware issues people are having. I know HTC has said they've fixed the issues, but is there anyone here who has gotten one in the past few weeks, and if so, were the issues still present? I don't want to get into a loop of sending it back to HTC and them sending it to me with nothing getting resolved. Should I just get a Galaxy Tab S and deal with TouchWiz?

    You can get a Galaxy and not deal with TouchWiz - just install Nova or Apex as the launcher.

    I picked up a White 16gb a few days ago and have no issues. I originally had a black 16gb I purchased first week of November and it had a little bit of light bleed, but not very noticeable. The only reason I return that one was because I really wanted the white. Both are from Bestbuy.

    IMO, the hardware issues are just small matters compared to the lag, heat and poor battery life encountered on Nexus 9

    ur better off getting Samsung. I came from an iPad and I'm regretting it. I was concerned abt touchwiz that's why I got nexus. but I'm making to many sacrifices, biggest being battery life. my old tablet easily 11 hours, nexus lucky to get 4

    Do you guys think the battery life/lag/heating issued will be solved somewhere down the line with software updates? Or is it a complete waste of time?

    Maybe one more hour for web surfing? I dun see how software optimisation can turn it from 4-5 hrs to 8-9 hrs

    Which iPad did you have? I have an iPad Air 2 and there is no way I can get 11 hours, more like 6.

    I had a ipad 3 ( sold it to get N9) now keep in mind I used it for surfing email and shopping on amazon. rarely watched movie or played games on it. I wud get abt 11 hours usage and multiple days standby ( under settings wud see these stats) on my N9, my screen on time is barely 4 hours and I have to charge every other day.

    If you are talking straight odds i will tell you that it was my 4th N9 that was good, the 4th was a white model and seemed much better built, my 3 soft back, light bleeding poopers was black

    It had all the defects.

    Shame on Google and HTC for putting out such a poorly tested and constructed product.

    Santa Brought me a perfect black 32GB Nexus 9. (I'm told he had Amazon send it via UPS.) I love it and Kindle on this screen is fabulous.

    Lucky. It's a gorgeous tablet, such a shame about the issues.

    I think the white unit uses a different plastic for the back which is less flexible. But, as far as the display goes my white unit had a band of light 1/4 inch wide running the full length of the display. I sent it back and went with the iPad Air 2 for now. I still have my Nexus 7 as a development test platform.
