Nexus 7 (Refunded)

I just got my Nexus 7 last week. It is one great looking device, plus it is much lighter compare to 10" tablets. Android Jellybean offers big improvement over Honeycomb. I owned 10" Galaxy Tab, I almost never used it for anything, since it is really bad. The browser is bad, and the tablet can become very slow over time.

Nexus 7 comes to the rescue. However, I got some issue with the LCD. It seems that ASUS has pretty bad QA. The LCD is not properly attached to the body. It is lifted by tiny bit, and I can feel it by gently touching the glass. I have contacted Google. They have confirmed that these issues are common. It just convinced me even more that ASUS has really bad QA. I will try to avoid their products in the future. I have had one bad experience with their laptop about 10 years ago. I thought they have changed.

The replacement tablet is on its way, and I hope it doesn't posses similar problem to my current one.

UPDATED: The replacement Nexus 7 still had the screen separation issue, it's even worse than my original. I decided to refund the item, because the screen separation issue was such a deal breaker for me.
