Just read this thread and noticed my Gnex has the screen raised at the bottom right corner too ! Surely its not supposed to be like that ? - although it is where the headphone jack is so I suppose the connector takes up a lot of room on that corner......

Yeah the screen is definitely supposed to be level with the bezel all-around...

If any of the corners is a bit off that isn't supposed to be like that.

Well guess a lot of devices have the issue but people just dont recognize it

Definitely a manufacturing defect. The EVO4G had the same problem with their initial few runs.

I've just been playing around with mine and by squeezing a finger gently along the edge on each side it has just popped down to be almost flush - not quite sunk like the other 3 corners(you can feel a slight ridge when sliding a finger across normally but the offending side is perfectly flush).
I guess the screen is design to pop out of the shell anyway - maybe some just weren't pushed down enough when manufactured ?

just got a new one from vzw store today for the same problem... my bottom right corner was raised above benzel and there was a decent gap on that side between screen and case, you could see the 3pin between the chassis and glass. Supprisingly they swapped it out with no hassel at all! Thought I would meet resistance.. the case and glass are way tighter seamed on the new phone.. : )

The Nexus One had this issue as well...what resolved it for a lot of people was using a blow dryer to heat up the affected corner of the screen and then squeezing that portion for a minute or so until it cooled. Basically it's heating up that glue and making it stick again.

Worth a shot for a simple DIY fix if you can't replace it. Just be careful heating it up, don't let it get too hot. I'd recommend powering down the device and removing the battery while you do it.

I did this to my N1 a couple years ago and it's still holding up to this day.

Thanks mate, that seems like a really good advice.

Will try when I find time, should do the trick.

Good tip... but... just get a new one! Its new! Its not our problem to fix... this device retails for the same price as my flat screen! If their quality isnt up to par than they can open up several until you get a good one.. wouldn't have ever bought a Samsung if it wasn't a nexus, but I still demand quality on the device I bought....
