I just replaced the nexus, and this one is worse.
This one starts to boot loop as soon as I turn the wi-fi on. This one doesn't even matter if it's on a wireless N network.
I just tried it in front on the VZW rep and he said if they're all doing this, then it's a software issue, and it'll have to be fixed.
I just called Samsung and they acted like it was new to them. Call them (888-987-4357) and VZW (611) and report this.
I don't don't know what to do now. Between the battery life, and gradient screen, and this I am pretty disappointed.
