    Today a google engineer looked at photos I sent of My Nexus 5 and they are sending me a new unit as without a doubt my speaker was blocked by glue.

    Before that I applied on of those mods for the camera and it worked incredibly.

    Absolutely but I think 1.2 works better than 1.3.. I am not at my desktop but it was a youtube video I watched from a british??? fella speaking about nexus 5 camera fix. It was a couple of weeks ago..Androidizen ?? was poster..

    Reason for replacement of phone was that on the speaker out of 13 holes, 5 were blocked leaving 8 open.

    I'm confused.

    Are you saying you blocked some of the holes on the speakers with glue after you fitted a mod for the camera??

    Well it was rather easy for me as I shined a flashlight on the left bottom (when holding phone with display up) and I was able to see a silver color in 5 holes. to confirm, I turned the phone on its back and when shining a light, the holes that were blocked were where they would be expected.

    Took photo (very hard for one person without a macro lens) and sent it to google support which forwarded to an engineer to examine and I was in a couple hours emailed return instructions. Before I sent picture they would not take my word.

    Mine has blue glue blocking both speaker and microphone kinda figured I could never prove it and lightly poked the glue out and used a speaker cleaning app not much help though glad to know I can get a new one


    Was it anything like that I have clearer photos btw

    Similar, but mine is silver appearing against black (clear holes)..


    also if you poked holes by yourself the warranty is voided and there is only 1 speaker so both your speaker and microphone look the same and mine are not.
