[Q] Should I get my Nexus 7 replaced?
I've been reading for awhile about all these issues with the Nexus 7 2013, and I'm wondering if mine has a hardware defect and needs to be replaced, or if I should just keep it. Perhaps they have updated the hardware since it was first released, and I need a new one?
When I first got mine, it had the erratic phantom touches on my keyboard and rebooted a lot. After I updated to JSS15R, I haven't seen either of these happen again, however it does consistently not register my finger touches (about every other touch). I tested touch in a multi touch app on JSS15R, and if I put 2 fingers down, sometimes the 2nd one isn't seen, but the first one is, and sometimes in certain spots, it will even register more than 1 finger when I have only 1 on the screen, so in regard to that, I am still seeing problems. The touch seems to work normally other than these things I mentioned.
I haven't yet noticed any issues like overheating or GPS problems, and after JSS15R, no more phantom touches either (at least not when using everything regularly, as I still noticed problems in my multi touch app).
Summary of problems before JSS15R:
Tons of reboots.
Summary of problems I have with JSS15R:
Missed finger touches. (Doesn't matter if I'm holding it or not, and I haven't checked when it's charging).
Reboots (only happened once, and haven't seen it again since).
App crashes sometimes (haven't seen it too much though).
My view of this: I think that GPS, reboots, and app crashes are a software problem, while touch screen problems (missed touches or phantom touches) is a hardware problem. I think it should be replaced with a newer model because of the touch screen problems (I've seen people here that say they have 0 issues). What's your view of this?
