    Advice about keeping my Nexus or changing it with another one

    First, the Nexus is an amazing phone, but since day one i have 2 problems with it, which didnt get corrected with 4.0.2 update.

    I realized that when the one problem is happening, the same time the second happens too. These are not happening all the time although.

    First problem. When i click date usage, date usage screen is not opening, it goes black and settings app stops working.

    Second. When i unlock the phone and go directly in call screen and press a contact to call, the screen stays like that for a few seconds before loading the dialing screen.

    Should i wait for a new update or take it back and use my insurance and take a new nexus?

    Those sound like software issues, I doubt a new phone would fix either of them. Plus you could very well get a phone that has worse hardware than yours, for instance it could get bad reception, dropped calls, the screen might be lower contrast or have an odd color tint. If you are happy with the hardware you have, I wouldent exchange it over software bugs.

    First I would recommend doing a factory reset and see if the problem persists. Then if it is still there take it back. For a warranty exchange. They will ship you a CLNR device though.

    Well let me give my experience. Thought I would get a replacement to see if I could get one with better data connections and what I got was a bad purple tented phone and no better data. Waiting on my 3rd phone now.

    I decided to take it back in the next days and change it.. Its "minor" bugs but are very frustrating. I mean if you want to make a call, you unlock your phone most of the times and call, but the "lag" untlil the call is being made sometimes is about 7-8 seconds! And not be able to acceess date usage is not that good either
