    Well I get the feeling I'm going to be sending back my replacement one as well, there are crackles from the speaker for a few seconds after playing any sound. Anyone have any idea what's causing it before I send it back.
    Quick Google says if crackles on volume over 50% it is indeed defective

    Just ordered myself one of these pretty much on impulse. Hope I don't regret it.

    @Stranded87 you won't - still love mine, still take it everywhere with me. Sat on a flight back Aberdeen on Wednesday night watching a movie on it. Brilliant :D

    SwiftKey is good. Also try the beta for mapsauras, gives you app suggestions.
    Also a heads up for applications spark 360, gives you both Xbox and psn friends, achievements, trophies, ps blog + able to send messages, all for about 2 quid

    Possibly SwiftKey, the phone version is superb.

    I use and love Swiftkey on my phone but I find the standard Nexus 7 keyboard to do much the same job

    My favourite keyboard is Thumb Keyboard. I use that on my Asus tablet and my Nexus phone.

    Lots more layout options than Swiftkey. And Thumb Keyboard is one universal app, no making you pay for separate phone and tablet versions.

    Shame it can only be used vertically unless viewing a film or YouTube clip

    @Pure-Ultra

    There are apps for that:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nl.fameit.rotate&hl=en

    Which, not to derail the thread, is the main reason I love Android so much more than iOS or Windows Phone. Pretty much anything you don't like can be changed/fixed.

    Mines just arrived and so far I absolutely love it.
    I was worried it would be a bit small and that i'd want a 10 inch instead/as well, but I don't think I will, it seems to have the combination of portability and screen size just right.

    Do you need to pinch and zoom when browsing?

    @bitch_tits_zero_nine you can, but a small zoom window pops up to make it easier to tap links.

    This is bit of a shot in the dark but thought someone might know.

    My sister wants me to buy a Nexus and set it up for her. However, she lives abroad so how would the free 15 google play credit offer work? Would it be preferable to setup the machine/account here or abroad? Can't get my head round if she can use the credit at all (and how google play purchases will work abroad if the machine is bought in UK (or does it not matter?)).

    @Mageme I believe the store is linked to your google account so if you set that up with a UK registered credit card you should be fine.

    Last time I sent back my nexus the plug came apart easily, this time it's not. What's the trick for splitting the plug in 2?

    Thank you, dsmx. My credit card will sleep safely, tonight - reading about all the hassle that you've been having has put me off the Nexus (for now).

    Third time lucky, I hope!

    Well I did consider just getting my money back and waiting a while this time, but I thought I'd be optimistic surely a third one wouldn't have any issues.

    So I've installed something and now I'm getting dating offers pop up in my notification bar. Anyone know how I can identify which app is doing it?

    Get AirPush detector from the playstore and it will tell you which app is doing that.

    So nexus number 3 arrived today, it appears to actually be OK, no crackle, no screen glass coming off and the screen appears responsive. Will my luck hold out?

    If I wanted to use a PS3 controller via an OTG cable would I need to root the nexus first?

    Basically I want to be able to play roms on Snesoid and N64oid, using a pad, without rooting.
