I contacted Google for a replacement and I'm probably going to have to send the phone in so, I'm wondering about the screw and them saying it voided warranty. Is this something I should worry about or is it not a big deal cause its a screw.
You could always buy a new screw but if you stripped one you probably were not using the correct tool and left other marks too. And, since the battery is glued to the display and front case and is extremely difficult to remove, and the warranty information which came with the phone warned that the battery is not replaceable, I personally think it would be better to make it look like you have never messed with it.
