Samsung Galaxy Nexus Gets First Major Issue

If you’ve ever read about, owned, or had a friend own a smartphone, you’re probably aware that these devices usually have some issues on board, especially products that fresh off a launch. And while the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a beast of a smartphone, it unfortunately is not immune to these issues. Yes folks, it looks like the Galaxy Nexus has its first major bug.

It appears that those with the Galaxy Nexus in the United Kingdom are experiencing a problem with a volume bug that tends to occur when the device is brought through a 2G signal area.

Remember, the UK version is an HSPA+ model and not LTE.

The bug apparently causes the volume to fall all the way down to zero without any user input. If you notice it, it takes a few seconds to fix because the phone locks up and if you don’t, well, pray that you don’t miss anything important notifications.

We imagine  that Google and Samsung will probably address this fairly soon in a software update.

    I’m not concerned about that since the Verizon variant has a different radio on a different network and I live in a solid 4G LTE area. ¬†Besides, by the time Verizon releases this phone, Samsung will have a fix for it.

    Mine has actually developed a far worse problem. It’s now completely frozen on me 3 times since I picked it up Friday, requiring a battery pull to bring it back to life. If I wanted a phone that needed battery pulls that frequently I’d have bought a BlackBerry. I’m taking it back today hoping they have stock I can exchange it for because I actually love the phone and I’ll really miss Ice Cream Sandwich.

    Samsung Galaxy Nexus, third Google Nexus phone, is also the first
    Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device. Google has debuted the latest
    version of its mobile operating system on its own smartphone. Galaxy
    Nexus is actually a variant of Samsung’s famous Galaxy S II series. But
    the device is with many spectacular features with Ice Cream Sandwich
    being the predominant one.
