Hi,

Yesterday i noticed my Nexus had started to make cracking noises, not much, but when touching it in the bottom part it makes small crack/plastic sounds witch it didnt do a few days ago. (Make it sound a little cheap)

After i had a closer look, i saw these cracks in the plastic frame going around the phone. Its now cracked bottom right corner, and both top corners.
Isnt this the same thing that happend to the S3? I remember my S3 had similar cracks in each corner.


This cant be good? :S

These are not cracks, just markings from the mould that was used to produce the plastic parts.

All N4 owners will notice these marks if they look closely

The creaking/cracking noises are from plastic moving against plastic, some handsets from the initial batches of N4 have a poor fit around the perimeter of the device.
Purely an aesthetic annoyance, Google were happy to replace my device under warranty, replacement makes no noise at all.

If you perceive there to be an issue, why haven't you just replaced the device? I don't know what help creating a thread will do for you.

It was just to see if anyone else had seen it before.
But if its from the molding then its not a problem and i got a answer for my question :)

I dont have any markings on my Nexus 4 from what I can see but my plastic does make some noise when you apply pressure near the micro usb port.

The phone appears normal to my eyes, but if its creaking and whatnot, replace it.

Mine had a case on within minutes of unboxing it.
I decided to take off the case to clean it when i noticed I've got the exact same finish\crack line on the same exact side. I would be very keen to see a clear photo of someone who doesn't have it to compare the difference.

We kind of agreed on that already :p
