So I pre-ordered on June 27th about 4 hours after the Nexus 7 was announced. I got my shipping notification on Friday July 13th. My Nexus 7 was delivered today at my apartment July 17th. There was no damage to the box or the device when I opened it. But when I tried to turn it on the battery was completely dead. So I plugged it in with the Asus charger and cord that came with it. When I booted it up this is what the screen looked like. To me it seems like the glue did not fully cure from the screen to the glass or the glass is raised. I'm getting what looks to be burn through (or ghosting) as well as black blotches on all four corners. As well as screen washout. Now I tried updating to 4.1.1 which I did with no eval. I also tried adjusting the brightness and it seems to help sometimes. But if I turn the device off or on or even just lock it then it will come back.
For some reason or another the screen looked good for about a 15 minute period. Then it started all this over again.
I'm really upset with Asus and Google right now for more then a few reasons. There's nothing like getting a brand new electronic just so you can call the warranty center 5 minutes later. To me it seems like the device charges rather slowly as well. For $285 I bought a 16GB Nexus 7 with a defective screen!
A very pissed off customer
