comment If all balls at $x$ and $y$ are isometric is there an isometry sending $x$ to $y$?
For my part, I found this answer to be elegant and easy to understand. While thinking about it, I got a "model-theoretic flash": it reminds me of issues of "local isomorphism" which arise in that subject. I wonder if one can make a real connection there...

comment Proofs of the Chevalley-Warning Theorem
In the realm of refinements on the $p$-adic congruences, here is a recent good-looking paper: arxiv.org/abs/1408.3224. Very recent: it appeared after your answer!
