So I actually posted this in the RMA thread but it just got lost in all the posts. Plus I can't find it posted anywhere else.

First two phones I had were 310k, both had faults and had to download the patch before using the phone.
My third phone is 311k, no faults and it came with KitKat preinstalled (no patch to download)

To check what build (batch) you have, look on your box where it shows the model #, imei # etc and look for S/N. The first 4 characters = build #.

I'm going to try and keep a log of all the build numbers and see if there are any changes to the phone like with the Nexus 4.

So.. so far:
310k - Need to install KitKat - Seems to have quality issues from my experience
311k - Preinstalled KitKat - Quality control seems better

This is just based off of three phones though. More information is needed.

I got mine from sprint and it doesn't have the s/n on the box. I wonder how I could check it.

Haven't noticed anything. I have both builds in my hands at the moment. 310k will be shipped back to Google tomorrow.

Did you have to install a patch before using your phone? If so its a 310k build.

Yes I had to install the 128 mb patch when the phone first turned on.

All N5 comes with KitKat. The update wasn't from JB to KitKat!

Can you please specify what you mean specifically by better quality control?
