the main problem is when im recording a video it all comes fine even in proper lighting or low lighting
but it Tends to Focus/Stabilize
whenever there is any movement which ruins the whole quality
if attached this small video in which if you pay attention you can see
how it zooms in and out and is trying to focus
can you guys please help ? is my piece defected?
and iv also heard that google started shipping new hardware
with bigger holes for speakers and volume and sim card slot fixed
is my batch proper? how can i find out

the video thing is really messy yesterday i filmed about 30 mins and i kept my phone stable in one position with proper lights on
we were filming something
and this thing ruined it
can you guys please look at the video and suggest ?

dude first of all relax its not a very very big problem but it is indeed even my nexus 5 zooms in and out when it tries to focus on things but not this much this is just to much zooming i would suggest u to update to 4.4.2 and try again if the problem persists then dont worry just return the piece

I did update it the day I bought the phone
I formated the phone yesterday to factory settings
It works fine and then it tries to focus if anything comes
In the way
So shall I return the piece ? Or is it ok ?
Any more suggestions people?

That is 100% normal, the same thing happens to mine as you can see here: (video recorded with my nexus 5)

Don't worry.
