How many of you are having manufacturer defects out of the box?

Had a dead pixel on mine that I picked up from GameStop

Also it seems the screen is coming up on the left like if the adhesive is giving out already.

I spoke to GameStop who referred me to play store but then play store said any warranty claims have to be done through the retailer. Obviously GameStop is out of stock but they said they were emailing corporate for me today to ask for another unit to be sent. So I should have mine replaced around Wednesday hopefully.

*EDIT* - Poll added

Another member (Capt.PP) asked me to include a poll to ask where we got our defective Nexus 7 tablets. If your place isn't on the list please include it in your post.

I got so used to amoled screens I forgot about dead pixels on LCD. Is it possible it being an LCD it might just be stuck?

Anyone ever have any success with one of those stuck pixel fix apps?

Either way I'm doing an exchange because of the screen not being recessed on left side properly. But hopefully no dead pixels on next one.

So this guy's trolling was in reality not a troll?

Lol. Looks like trolling but I did read in another thread a guy had issue with his screen stating to come off his I/O device. I noticed mine while I was holding it on the left side the screen was giving in and making some creaking and such. Upon closer inspection I noticed on the left side/middle area the screen was actually sitting above the frame. Everywhere else it was sitting nicely and recessed under the frame.

Anyway the risk of defects is always going to be higher with the first runs.

Download a dead pixel test app on play store. Its basically solid color backgrounds you alternate so in some cases you'll be able to see the pixel in a red background etc.

Could you be kind enough to post a pic of your screen defect?

Sure...its a bit difficult to see on a picture but its basically the screen rising above the border in one area so the edge of the screen is exposed. That same area is soft as well where pressing on makes the screen move in and out with creaking. The rest of the edges are sturdy.

Dead pixel I'm not posting photo since I'm sure everyone knows what that looks like but its located on the app drawer button in portrait mode. Shows up the most in white backgrounds.
