Samsung has offered no official confirmation when consumers can expect a bug causing the Galaxy Nexus' volume to inexplicably drop to be fixed.
Launched less than a week ago, the Galaxy Nexus' bug was soon reported by jilted consumers and critics. Though the official number of devices affected remains unclear, tech sites such as CNET UK have reported receiving complaints about the device and reports of the problem have begun to emerge on numerous tech forums.
The comments generally report that at intermittent points the phone suddenly goes silent, meaning users don't get notifications for texts, calls or email. Certain users have also reported the bug occurring mid-phone call, claiming that the device cuts out, meaning that while the phone call is still active they can no longer hear the person on the other end of the line.
Though Samsung are yet to release any official word on the problem, Android forum XDA Developers has issued a report suggesting the problem only occurs on devices on a 2G connection. The forum went on to clarify that according to its findings the problem specifically occurred on models of the device using the 900MHz spectrum for 2G coverage -- which is a problem considering nearly all the devices sold in the UK run on this frequency.
At the time this article was written Samsung had not responded to the IBTimes' requests for confirmation and comment on the bug.
