Galaxy Nexus may have phantom volume problem

Marketplace Staff Nov 21, 2011

Remember the antenna problem on the iPhone 4? And the battery drain problem on the 4S? Well, the Galaxy Nexus has found a way to keep up with the iPhone EVEN IN THIS AREA. Some early owners of the phone are reporting that the volume seems to crank up and turn down on its own.

From PC Mag:

The bugs have reportedly prompted Vodafone to delay its launch of the device. “We’re continuing to test the Galaxy Nexus software to ensure our customers get the best possible experience of the device,” Vodafone community manager Tom wrote in a Thursday forum post. “We’ll provide concrete details on availability of the device once the testing process has been successfully completed.”

I don’t know why no one will just come out and say that this phone is haunted. So obvious, you guys.
