    Just wondering if this is a common occurance for anyone else or if its just me.

    For those who don't know, since the nexus one is a capacitive touch screen, there is a "capacitive grid" that comprises the touch screen component. Its present in all capacitive touch screens and is necessary. The grid itself is a series of straight diagonal lines, one set going southwest to northeast across the screen and the other set going southeast to northwest.

    For my Nexus One, the grid is very very easily spotted. Anytime the display is off and the screen is tilted at an angle I can see the grid very easily. Mind you its 100% invisible when the display is on.

    Cant see the lines themselves, but on an angle in the sunlight with the display off i can see a grid of tiny dots.
    Nothing to notice and piss me off.
    Something that really ticks me of is a rattling in the phone. Pretty sure its something in the camera, and i dont want to send it for repairs since its such a hassle.

    So the N1 rattles when you shake it? Seems like that would be annoying.

    No.

    But it will rattle if you tap around the camera area.

    i dont mind the touch screen grid pattern. but what i DONT like is that i have tiny micro scratches all over when you look at the screen in direct sunlight, at a certain angle, with the screen off. everyone check theirs cause its really hard to see and you dont think they are there but then you have them. can only see them in sunlight.

    lol...oh man...and here I thought you're so careful with your phone :rolleyes:
    Mine must be abused then XD

    Just checked...and realized that I was standing infront of some people having a meeting in the conference room >_> I hope they're too deep into conversing about work to notice that I was checking my phone by the window...and I saw the grid!!! lol...never noticed until now. Don't really see any scratches on Nexus' screen though, lol, mine is only 20 days old though.

    Why are you so bothered by something that you can only see in direct sunlight, at a certain angle, with the screen off, and looking for it? If you have to try that hard to see a problem, then I don't think it's really a problem.

    haha no you're right, i'm over the scratches. the first time i noticed them it sucked but now i just dont care.

    the thing is i baby this phone insanely. i barely even touch the screen when operating it, ever so slight touches. been like that since day 1. and nothing but my finger has ever touched the screen. so if it happened with that kind of usage, i know it has to be on every other nexus as well. i watch these youtube videos and the way these people are swiping their nexus screen, i'm not even close to doing it like that. so gentle i am, everytime!

    i'm really just more curious how glass can get micro scratches rather than concerned about it. the screen looks pristine up close in normal conditions, so i dont care. but still makes you wonder...

    What type of glass is the Nexus' screen made of? Gorilla Glass? Mineral Glass?

    i just got my nexus today, I tried like a MOFO to see the grid what your talking, I tilted it and looked very close and couldn`t see anything, also about the rattle with the camera focus, mine doesn`t do that but again its brand new and works great no problems at all still wondering when i should do the root to it, I would hate to void my warranty, I guess I will keep it stock for a week and no problems after that I will root it:D
