    A stuck pixel is when the pixel is active but it just stays white, it becomes more noticeable on a dark background. A dead pixel will appear black and will be noticeable on a light background. hope this helps.

    So I have a black wallpaper up, and I see a little white dot in the lower right coner just above the quick launch bar. So that's just a stuck pixel then? And in theory I could run that youtube vid a few times and maybe fix my stuck pixel? This is my third and by far the best Pre I've gottin yet.

    I was the first in line at my local store in Manhattan on launch day and bought 3 of them. So far...3 perfect phones (even with my wife having hers unprotected in her purse)

    I think it is truly a wash. I have two Pre's right now, my wife's is as solid as a rock while mine is starting to develop the twist. Its not terrible, but I might exchange it anyways as I want this phone to last for a while.

    Out of all the Pres my wife and I have had (9), I would say the launch day Pre was the best, with the latest two being runners up. You hate to feel like its the luck of the draw with build quality, but it was the same way with the iPhone. Dead pixels, yellow screen, faulty vibration motor.

    When I got my replacement, I made sure there were not stuck or dead pixels. I actually told the rep I would be running the "stuck pixel fixer" that's on youtube, and I did 3 or 4 times just to be sure. Make sure you turn the screen brightness up all the way.
    Seems like the slight Oreo still exists though.
    Lovin Sprint, and the Pre.

    I'd call that good enough..

    My pre actually came almost perfect.. but now there's one dead pixel (might be that I started noticing it..).. doesn't bother me too much.

I'm sure there are a few people that have an actual problem with their phone being TOO loose, but, for the most part, people on the internet like to ***** and moan about something perfectly reasonable (like a two-piece phone moving when twisted- OMG!).

    As for the stuck pixel, give the video others have talked about a try. Good luck!
    It's a problem for many people. The latest phone I have is a total piece of #%#@. You can't even do a back gesture without wobbling it - that's how bad this one is.

    I'm on my second pre due to the oreo issue. Of course, this one has it to. The only thing is that it doesnt wiggle when im just holding the phone and tilt it sideways to landscape, it only wiggles if I physically twist the top piece. Is this the case with everyone who has the oreo concern? I'm thinking of exchanging to another pre before next thursday but I don't know if its really worth it considering everything else with the phone works just fine, and i wouldnt want to receive a pre with other issues (dead pixels, app problems, etc.).

    I bought mine at launch day and had no problems whatsoever. No dead pixels, oreos, or any gaps. I feel extremely lucky, but i also had been careful with all my phones. After reading about how the rails might wear down on the slider it kinda makes me cautious of how much force i use to close it.

    I got mine around june 20 and its been great since...I thought I had the headphone problem for a bit but found out it was just saw dust in the hole bc I work in a wood shop...dusted it out and it works fine

    It has a little twist movement when closed (1-2mm if that), but I took out the batt to look at the rails and its just the way the sliders fit...not really anyway to get around it...just the design in the slide...rock solid all around...no gaps to stuck/dead pixels

    Yes that's correct, however the pixel video is not gauranteed, i had a stuck pixel on my 2nd pre and it could not fix it. good luck with yours.

    My launch day Pre has a slight wobble, and is looser than it probably should be. When the phone is sitting flat on a table I can press on the top near the earpiece and there's enough play to actually make a clicking sound of the two halves coming together (there's a slight gap). I'm not twisting the phone, just holding it normal the two halves rattle together a bit.

    To anyone saying that the wobble is BS, they obviously haven't had the unfortunate experience of getting one that is really bad. I can deal with mine, but after my wife's first Pre (which was rock solid so they can't convince me they are all wobbly) started shutting off on its own at random times, I exchanged it, and the one they tried to give me had a gap big enough to fit a nickel in there and wobbled like you would not believe. I said yea I'm not taking this and they brought out a different one with a little less wobble than mine. So that's 4 Pres that I have personally handled from the same store and none of them were "perfect." My wife's first one was damn close though, if it just wouldn't have had the random shutdown problem. But give me a phone that's actually usable over one that feels more solid than the others anyday.

    Well- I ended up having to switch my plan around today and cancel a line and the store clerk said the easiest thing to do was return the old phone and start fresh. So I did.

    Perfect Pre!

    Okay- slight oreo but I cant imagine one not. When the keyboard is exposed it is rock solid with no wiggle. No stuck or dead pixels. Buttons (especially the power) feels much better.

    And boy does the webos kick ***!

    We have 2 Pres from launch day and neither has any problems other than the slightest wobble. No more than any other slider I've ever owned. I had 2 resets on the first day, but as soon as I updated to 1.0.2 all was well. The wife's has had no problems at all. I wish you all much luck!
