I just want to share my misery and frustration...

Well here's my story: I received my nexus 10 in good order (i live in singapore btw), after 5 days of use, i came home one day and found this ant stuck under the glass screen of my N10.

Can someone explain how the heck an ant can even get there?

I guess i have no choice but to ship it back to US to get a replacement.

Wow.....now that's something you don't see everyday. Talk to Google, they should send you a replacement before you send yours back. However your cc will be charged till they get your one with the ant.

Also I thought the LCD was glued to the gorilla glass 2?

Exactly! that's what i thought to.. perhaps the ant was there since manufacture?! then today it decided to move right to the centre of the screen and die there. great.
:good:

Had to be in there during manufacture. Would be cool if you could identify the species and see where its native to.

I don't know where you are from, but ants are part of our lives in most countries. Even in Canada, ants is not strictly a sign of poor hygiene. In some countries or area of the world, you just expect them to be everywhere.

I don't know what your idea of a factory is, assembling a tablet does not require a surgical room or a waffer factory clearness

Maybe, however a clean, dustless environment would have prevented so many returns for dust being trapped under the screen. Like mine that's gone back today .......

    if it was asus, it wouldn't be covered under warranty, they'd make you pay to ship it to taiwan, and it'd come back with 3 ants

    It's not a bug - it's a feature.
