There has been a discussion on the XDA-Developers Forum regarding some of the hardware problems of the Nexus 5. Actually, it was about the issues of the first batch of Nexus 5 devices, and we say that because Google is now selling its flagship in a newer revision.
This was discovered by a member who had returned his faulty Nexus 5 and then received one of the new variants with all the problems of the old one fixed, like the ‘cutting-edge’ display frame, protruding SIM tray, noisy and shaky buttons. The new device was then put side-by-side to the first Nexus 5 and it turned out they have a bit different shell. For one, the revised Nexus had noticeably bigger speaker holes, its buttons were sturdier, and the display had a yellow tint.
It’s nice that Google acknowledged the little quirks of its biggest pride and stepped up quickly to eliminate them. We bet some customers now have the feeling of being cheated, but sometimes that’s the cost of being an early adopter.
