Default Nexus 5 fault rate: please vote if none as well

Hi everyone,

Many people are still waiting for their phones to arrive, and all this long talk about various defects doesn't really let people know how many perfectly built ones are actually out there, so... Can you tell us?

Edit: dammit, forgot the also-common vibrator issue... Vote under "other", the idea is really to picture the perfect unit count...

Only problem with mine is the power button rattles. With a case on it doesn't happen though.

The vibration also whistles a little bit, but it just needs setting to 30ms and it will be fine.

Power button has a bit of play if I move my finger over it sideways but only noticed it now after reading the poll, so not really a problem per se.

I get the button rattle if I shake my phone but that's not a normal use case for me.

DONATE TO ME
I tried to rattle my power button and barely hear anything. I tried to see the light leaking and bleeding and once again nothing. I was so paranoid about dead pixels and dust lol that i spent 15 minutes examining and cleaning the screen with a micofiber cloth under a powerful flashlight to see if i found anything and nope. I'm glad to say I got one of the perfect units since I was so paranoid that my 32Gig Stormtrooper was going to have dust under the screen.
If I helped you out please click the thanks button under my name. Thanks!

Just for people who think they have no faults, might be worth checking with a dead pixel checking app, might surprise you!
