Uh oh, despite its popularity and overall great reviews, it looks like early adopters of the Galaxy Nexus are experiencing a wide spread problem with the phones volume and volume rocker. There are a couple of threads over in the XDA forums filling up as we speak regarding the issue. It’s not a problem with just a few GN’s, it appears to be more wide spread.
When trying to adjust the phones volume, people are experiencing erratic behavior of the volume dialog window going up and down, and in and out of vibrate. Based on general reports, this is mostly happening when in a 2G coverage area rather than 3G. I know it sounds weird to blame said issue on the phone’s radio but enough coroberating stories have led users to to think this is the cause. Check out the video below to see the problem in action. If you too are experiencing the same issue, hit one of the XDA source links below to get in on the discussion thread.
This is a real bummer for those experiencing the problem and here’s hoping Google finds an easy and timely fix. Maybe this is the time that we here in the states should actually be thankful for Verizon’s delayed launch. Who want’s a brand new buggy Galaxy Nexus?
