    Seems that way. But on mine it's a little more than a little give. It's actually like a clicker that extends almost to the edge about the size of a quarter. I went to the store yesterday and they swapped out a back from their demo model and it did the same things. Switched batteries and still the same whereas the demo unit was solid with no give at all. Rats, don't know what to do now. I'll prob go back and get another phone today. What a royal pain.

    Settings-->Developer options-->Force GPU rendering

    Is it ticked? I've heard this isn't as good as it could be and is causing these types of issues.

    Just a tip; before anyone posts problem they need to make sure everything under the "Developers options" page is un-ticked and they've not rooted the phone... cos otherwise all bets are off :)

    I've given up on ever setting up my bookmarks.
    I can't find that awesome speak to text they were showing off
    The lag in landscape while the texting is terrible
    Surprised how many places I can't pinch to zoom.

    Far from throwing in the towel though. I read thru everything you kids post with pen and paper in hand so I can try your tips and tricks.

    Press the mic button on the keyboard and start yapping away ;)

    Oh and what problem do you have with setting up bookmarks?

    Same here. Only in landscape though, as others have reported.

    To be honest, folks who've rooted their nexus should not be posting in this thread.

    Found the mic. Thank you. And I've been following the discussion on lag so I know I'm not alone. The bookmark set up is confusing to me. How to add and how to delete. I will keep playing with it. No need for you to spend more time on this for me. You were sweet to help with the mic. Gramma thanks you.

    Rooting does not cause problems. Modifications after rooting can cause problems.

    I root to gain access to the command line, I don't usually make any mods.

    I don't believe that at all. After rooting my OG Droid I starting having all kinds of problems, after unrooting it was just fine.

    If you're talking about bookmarks in the browser those To add a bookmark press the 3 little dots at the top right and select "save to bookmarks". To edit or delete a bookmark hold down on the bookmark and you will get the options of what you want to do.

    I have never had a problem after rooting any android device.

    Once I started over clocking too high or changing build files, then I had a few issues.

    While this may be true for some people, I've had zero issues with mine, the quality is excellent in any lighting conditions I've thrown at it, watching youtube and netflix. I would put it out as a caution that people may experience it, but it's not affecting everyone.

    Is it just me or is the volume on this phone really weak? I can't hear it ring if anyone else is around me talking or if I am outside. Additionally, I played a voice mail thru the speaker and unless I have it directly on my ear in total quiet, I can't hear it. Other people notice the same thing?

    Unfortunately, a common known issue. Not sure if it's a cheapo speaker or just underpowered. Users have found that installing the Volume+ application, rebooting the phone, and adjusting its levels in the sound settings (some as high as up to +9) and turning on the treble boost has improved the sound to a normal level. However, it might take some experimenting since you don't want to turn up the volume to the point of distorting the speaker or shortening its lifespan. Full version can be gotten for free from the developer here:

    Landscape for the most part, although it may be present in portrait as well, I just can't text fast enough to get it to lag in portrait.

    I usually keep it on vibrate so I'm not sure about ring loudness. But it does get pretty darn loud watching youtube videos, so I highly doubt the speaker is the problem.

    First, love the Nexus, and I bought this knowing that it's meant to be a developer phone, and that it would not be issue free. If anything, we all signed up to be ICS guinea pigs...

    Here are the issues I've seen/heard so far:

    1. If I receive a phone call while typing something say in the twitter app (other apps too), the phone screen comes up but the keyboard does not minimize, so there is no way to answer the call since the slider is blocked.

    2. If I am talking to someone on the phone while inside a house or car, and step outside with the slightest breeze, the person on the other end says that I sound like total crap, and that I'm trying to talk to them from inside a hurricane.

    3. I actually wasn't able to recreate the issue again just now, but I was trying to comment inside the facebook app using voice-to-text and the output was just a bunch of random names from MY address book. It was really crazy, but it has only happened once or twice.

    4. The auto-correct feature in any situation will occasionally revert back to the incorrect spelling of a word, even though I hit space and continue typing. It will accurately correct my typo, then revert to the typo after I hit space. Really odd.

    I honestly think you either got a lemon, the file is bad, or the conversion settings were bad. I have a few 1080p 4000-5000kbps data rate mp4 files on my Nexus. The video playback is impeccable, during all scenes and screen brightness levels.

    I did try to play that test file on my phone, and it played with no issues at 100% brightness. landscape, but if I keep typing it catches up just fine.

    Pool_shark is completely accurate when stating that "rooting" (in it's pure form) does not cause any problems. Theoretically, rooting involves just gaining the superuser level of permissions. Not unlike the difference between user and admin on a windows machine.

    However, Dubbin1 may have a point as well. While rooting itself doesn't cause any harm, the root process may. Keep in mind, to root a phone you have to find a security hole to break into. That process may cause other things to fail. So it's important to mention which rooting method you use, since not all are equal and some can cause problems. Most, however, do not cause problems. The ones that do are quickly forgotten, but with new phone such as this, there are already something like 20 different ways to root. Luck would be you tried the one that caused problems.

    I've encountered quite the opposite. Playing youtube videos and mp3s have produced abysmal volume levels on mine compared to my Droid 1, Droid 2, Rezound, and Bionic. At least one reviewer (i forget the site) reported that he missed calls because he couldn't even hear the phone ring (although others have reported using better ringtones or music instead of the default Nexus ones improves that). If not in a very quiet environment, the external speaker has been worthless. I haven't tried the Volume+ app myself yet because I may exchange mine tonight for signal problems. (Not the widely reported regular ones we've been reading, but as bad as my not being able to even get a GPS signal lock on Google Maps in my well-covered 4G area during an entire 20-minute commute to work). I'll report back on whether the speaker on my replacement is an improvement. I will sadly say that I'll have to go back to the Rezound in mid-January if some of my issues aren't patchable in the near future.
