Though some have claimed the Samsung Galaxy Nexus could be the best smartphone ever produced, the early praise does not come without a few minor snags here and there. A bug has surfaced which sees the phone randomly mute itself then fail to respond to a users input using the volume control. After a bit of troubleshooting, the problem has been inconclusively linked to 2G data connectivity. The glitch seems to only occur when the handset is connected to the older wireless standard.
The good news is that the problem should be easily patchable via a software update, so those eager to pick up the Galaxy Nexus shouldn’t be turned off by the discovery. Minor bugs go along with the territory of being an early adopter, especially when a completely new operating system is involved. [via XDA | Thanks to all who sent this in!]
Speaking of things that might have turned off potential Galaxy Nexus buyers, last week an updated Google info page suggested that Verizon’s LTE version of the handset would only be available with 16GB of internal storage. A newly leaked comparison document pitting the specs of the GNex against other devices still shows 32GB, however. In fact, the document does not show a 16GB option, leading to further confusion. It is unclear if both a 16GB and 32GB version will be available from Verizon, but it looks likely that at least the larger of the two storage options will exist. [via DroidLife]
