Default Different nexus 5 hardware

Hi, due to several defects, many have chosen to send back the nexus 5 to receive a new one. infa89, a member of an Italian forum, had the following defects:
dancers and noisy buttons
SIM tray protruding
"cutting edge" display frame.

Comparing the old with the new phone, he noticed several differences, as you can see in the picture.

The new one has none of the above defects, it has
fixed buttons
larger microphone and speaker holes

more yellow display
green stuck pixels.

Someone else has noticed differences between his nexus and replaced one?

Mine has the small speaker holes, I bet that's why it buzzes through the whole phone.

You know just yesterday I was looking at the speaker holes thinking they are probably too small to let the sound out easily.

RMA? Because of buzzy sound?

Edit...Yeah my buttons are fine too, and it's a 311

Oddly I have the tight fitting buttons, but the speaker/mic grille look to be the smaller ones.

I have a 311k btw

my 32 gb white had the small holes, rattling buttons, microphone problems during recording, as well as backlight bleeding.
I immediately sent it back, but still waiting for the new.

By rattling buttons, you mean if you just shake the phone? Because mine rattle a little, but its not a problem. No backlight bleed or small holes though.
