GNex/ "Mind of its own" Bugging issue?
When I got this phone from BestBuy I noticed some issues while starting the phone (logging into google,etc). It was like the phone had a mind of its own, random buttons were being pushed by themselves, the screen was unresponsive at times. I showed the sales rep, she told me that the issues should resolve as I get the update and reboot phone, but if the issue persists just bring the phone back and they will replace it with a brand new one.
I was in a hurry (like they were) because it was Christmas eve, and had to go meet up with family. So I thought I would play with the phone, see if the issues are resolved, and if not, just bring it back in a few days.
So, once I was home, after meeting family etc, and had some time to play with my new phone, i started trying to solve the issue. I found that all of my apps from my "rooted and romd" bionic came through with google stuff. THis included Superuser, and some others. I proceded to uninstall all the extra apps thinking that these are part of the reason. This wasn't easy because the phone was going into menus and buttons appeared to be selected on their own, so I was rebooting the phone during this process and it gave me a window of opportunity before the bugging started. I also did the Software Update at this time.
After I removed all the "stuff" i didn't need. I rebooted and the phone seemed to be fine. In fact it had been fine for a few days, then all of a sudden it started happening again yesterday. I pulled the battery and everything booted up fine with out an issue. Since that one time it re=occured, I haven't seen the issue at all.
Now my thoughts are the phone has an inherent issue and will need to be returned soon while i can get a replacement. So i have avoided rooting, unlocking , etc.
My question: Have you guys heard of these issues with NExus. Am I in the clear? Would the superuser etc affect the phone this way? I would like to keep it and not mess with taking it back, but part of me feels like i got a lemon and need to replace it.
What do you guys think? ... Sorry for the novel ... Thanks.
