    Plenty of people well under 10k are not yet having their invites. I don't see I will get mine any time soon lol.

    Makes you wonder how they decide who to hand out invites to...

    Nice posting thanks for sharing with all of us. I'm keen to learn about your battery experience once you'd had it for awhile!

    Exactly, they are very sketchy and unpredictable. But most importantly is they are untrust able according what to they said and announced.

    Actually, since you own the phone, how would you say about the following:
    The white balance of the screen in general. I noticed that on the pic you posted it appears to be pretty neutral.
    Sound quality (Speakers, and preferably about headphones too.)

    You mean like if there is a general yellow hue or any other kind of hue? There is absolutely none and the white looks... well white :)

    Speakers and headphones will be covered in my full review, but in short I can tell you that they're pretty great :)

    Feeling more and more optimistic about my soon-to-be new phone :) Thanks for making my day with this "no yellow hue" update. Glad to see that you finally got your phone. Also, keep up the good work sniffing around those legal documents :cool:

    you have the on screen Navigation buttons enabled. this helps obscure some of the yellowing at the bottom. My phone has the yellowing near the bottom too and i have the same production date as yours 2014.06.20, but it doesn't bother me.

    Aw, snap, I forgot to remove them for the last picture, sorry about that... Too lazy to do another one now though, plus it's not that different from the first one anyway and if anything, it looks better :p

    It sure was, even though I have been on the verge of introducing my Nexus S to my table's corner multiple times, with all the lags it had :D The wait wasn't that long for me though, just around two months, which is nothing compared to some people around here.

    I can't believe rooting doesn't void the warranty! That is amazing!

    It's such a little known fact I've been hesitating to open a thread specifically to tell this. However, I thought it would be a bit too short, so I figured I'd just include it in my review :)
