Please report any more problems that you come across so that we can know all the issues with the new N7.
Hardware Issues: None (so far). I'm actually VERY impressed, as I was quite nervous after the original N7 debacle. No screen lift, no dead/stuck pixels, no problems whatsoever. It feels very sturdy and well built as well, significantly better than the original. Now I just need to get a case to keep it that way.
Software Issues: Haven't had a chance to use it long enough to tell, but there is certainly one major issue affecting some people. I won't go into the details here (it's been discussed in other threads), but some devices seem to be unable to upgrade to the JSS15J OTA update due to a failure to validate one of the files. I bring this up here because, IMHO, it is a 'build quality' related issue, or more specifically a problem with QA. In all reported cases so far, none of these affected devices had the standard wallpaper installed, which seems to indicate that there was a flashing issue at the factory.
Overall, I am very happy with the unit. I wasn't sure whether I would buy it since I still liked my original N7, plus I have a new Dell Latitude 10 tablet I bought a few weeks ago, but I'm glad I went ahead and got it.
