    When saying it is near mint, I am referring to the cosmetic condition. I completely understand it is damaged, but the damage is not as severe to where it is worth $30. Especially when cracked Nexus 6 devices go for around $150.

    There was never any question as to whether or not this device had an issue. The functional condition of the device has been expressed explicitly throughout the thread. So I don't quite see where there has been any dishonesty.
    The screen burn-in is a cosmetic defect. That in itself makes the device nowhere close to near mint.

    Your best bet would be to do the warranty exchange, get the new one (or refurbished), don't open it and sell that. That'd get rid of most of the perceived issues.

    And brand new ones keep popping up for about $215 on slickdeals so what is the point you are trying to make...
    My point is that the things that are wrong with this device do not penetrate it's value that much. If cracked ones go for around $150 and new ones go for $215. Why would I sell a Nexus 6 with a speck of camera dust and nav button shadow for below $150? A fair price would be something inbetween the two above listed prices.

    If they're new for $215 from a vendor, I'd be willing to offer $200 for new in unopened box from a third party or $100 for refurbished in unopened box. Otherwise I'd buy from the trusted vendor.

    It's damaged. It is dishonest to claim that it is in near mint condition due to the damage. Swappa wouldn't let this be sold other than in the Boneyard.
    Correct. According to Swappa conditions, this would fall below fair. Because the screen isn't in good condition.

    That's true. Although I spoke on the phone with Motorola and they don't just immediately deduct the cost. They will contact you and give you options.

    I was planning on doing that and then listing here, but I just cant to go a week+ without a device.

    So essentially anyone interested should just offer me this at a price they'd be comfortable with even if the device doesn't get replaced.
    Don't know what carrier you are on, but if on Verizon then their extended warranty covers pre existing conditions in certain states. Assuming that the problem is a mechanical defect. There might be other plans out there that cover similar. The nice thing about Verizon is they will send the phone first. There is also no deductible for claims under extended warranty

    On eBay if you did not list this phone in the "For parts or not working" category you would have a PayPal / eBay claim on your hands.
    On Swappa by default this would go in the Boneyard category.
    So it is a bit disingenuous to say this is a mint condition device and then say oh by the way here are a couple of teeny weeny issues with this device. Mobile Nations sites are a community of like minded enthusiasts and so people are definitely going to watch out for other fellow members. Nothing against you listing a device for sale here but it is better to list it in worse condition that it usually is to be on the safe side. Then when the buyer actually gets the device and finds it to be in better condition than they thought it would be in when they purchased it it creates a win-win scenario and goodwill on both sides of the deal.

    I apologize for any confusion there may have been. That was not my intention.

    Me saying "Mint" was me describing the actual cosmetic condition. The condition of the actual outers of the device. The back sides and front of it. I have described the phone in its entirety in the OP. If someone bought this and had no idea that it had such and such. Then that means the buyer only read some of the OP and not all of it.

    Again I'm sorry for any confusion this may have caused. If my thread is just so offensive to all the moderators, then I'm fine with it being locked up if that's what you all wish.

    I have followed the marketplace criteria by listing it in proper format with pictures and described the device in its complete entirety and instead of serious offers, just negative verbal evaluations of the info I have provided that don't consider all the aspects of what I have listed. Am I not welcome to sell this here.

    I wouldn't want to just say "fair condition, screen burn, dust in camera". I want interested buyers to understand that the actual cosmetic physical condition of the device is excellent. I'm sorry if my use of the word " Mint" was wrong.

    I also don't see how I did anything similar to the "oh by the way" scenario you proposed. It's not like I said "perfect condition", received offers and then brought up things wrong with it after payment.

    The COMPLETE condition of the device is in the OP. I left nothing out. I don't see how it is dishonest. I guess the root of the issue is that I shouldn't have used he word " Mint"?

    I guess I should have instead stated the device has so and so issues and then simply described the actual physical cosmetics of the device to be "like new" or is that dishonest too? Should the issues this device has completely cancel out any description of how it looks?

    Mod Note, I will lock this thread now as it got off topic. Please feel free to relist the device, disclosing the burn in and dust under the camera lens in the thread title and body (if you plan to list it as near mint). You can say, "physically near mint condition, has screen burn in and dust under camera lens" in the title )
