    I wonder if this is happening during some of the reviews and they don't neccesailry notice it and that's why they are saying the phone is quiter then most phones? Cause I've read a few articles on this and it seems people are saying it does it completely random at anytime wether on the phone or listening to music. One guy was transferring files and he said it did it.

    No, this doesn't have to do with the lateness of it. It's a minor bug that only effects the HSPA+ versions of the phone according to TBH. While it is lazy on the part of Samsung and Google this doesn't have much of a bearing on Verizon's release.


    For reference, when asked about the HSPA+ model volume bug p3droid's response was: @mfg68 yes, thank goodness mine is LTE, LMAO


    Based on the release of this phone in Europe, however, I am glad Verizon has decided to hold out a bit longer. They are making mistakes all over the place, giving out developer version, some have faulty cameras with lenses facing odd angles, some have this volume bug, some cannot connect to 2g without constant restarts... The Nexus is going to be amazing but it really needs more proper testing, in my opinion.

    +1 I've always said this about video games. Just like BF3, good game but it has issues and then u ask yourself "did they even play this game" lol. I see phones as about the same way but I'm not a developer so I'm not criticizing anyone its just I wonder sometimes.

    I was hoping to get this phone - it was either this phone or the bionic...now I'm thinking the Bionic if they can't get this sorted quickly.

    Sometimes the bug is actually only effecting a small percentage of the devices, so you don't see it until you've got a couple hundred thousand out there.

    I've been following this bug for a few days now, since the 17th UK release.

    The bug is when without touching the volume button, the volume turns itself all the way down to vibrate randomly. Some think it's when they're on wifi, a majority of them notice it when they drop to 2G though(yes 2G).

    Some were downloading apps when it happens, some streaming netflix. It's most likely a 2G bug, just needs a software update from Google and it will be fixed.

    It's the only bug I've seen so far in the UK. So far we haven't seen any of the LTE devices with the problem, but because there are so few LTE Nexus' in the wild, it doesn't prove the problem doesn't exist with it as well.

    I am surprised one of the testers on twitter hasn't mentioned the problem yet, as they've had both models.

    And DL posts a video of it happening with 2g:
