Samsung Galaxy Nexus Owners Find Major Flaw In New Device
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Android 4.0 smartphone owners are now complaining about a volume bug in their new devices.
Reports have said that owners are claiming there is a serious problem with the phone's volume controls.
The Galaxy Nexus II smartphone's volume behaves erratically, according to reports, jumping between muted and full volume and every setting in between.
XDA Developers say that the problem is related to the Galaxy Nexus hardware, which could mean that a software update may not fix the problem.
They said that the volume on the device will start lowering hectically, especially during phone calls or when radio is being switched from 3G to 2G networks.
XDA said in a blog post the this only happens when the phone is on 2G connection, which is when the phone shows GPRS or Edge icons.
It said that the problem is amplified in areas with low signal strength because of the way the phone behaves to find and connect to cellular networks.
XDA estimates that as many as 60 percent of Galaxy Nexus owners could be experiencing the problem.
Both Samsung and Google have not commented on the issue yet.
