Here is a link to the discussion that describes my problem on the Doggcatcher forums. Note that I've also experienced this problem playing music through other apps including Google Music (both online and offline mp3 files). So it's not isolated to the Doggcatcher app.

How's about the poor quality control on the screen? I'm on my third nexus from 3 different stores and they all have some sort of coloration on the screen. First was awful, had banding. Second the whole top half was pale blue against white background.
My third still has blue in the bottom right hand corner but compared to the other two it was bearable. Everyone i know with a nexus has some sort of green,blue, or red coloration somewhere on your screen. Look for it, low light, white background. Once you see it you can't unsee it.

Default Can't send or receive MMS

I had Handcent installed but deleted it because I thought it just wasn't ready for ICS yet. I still can't send or receive MMS through the stock app but noticed this is only with Wi-Fi on. As soon as I turn Wi-Fi off the images send.

Looking in the forums I see several with this issues but no one else testing with Wi+Fi on or off.

I'm very anal about screen quality and i'm not very pleased with the actual screen itself. The HD amoled and the pentile is fine but the quality is.. shoddy at best. I'm going to my 4th store in about a week or so see if they have a different batch or something.

It might be annoying, but more annoying to me is the backlight bleed present in all LCD phones. Especially given the fact that I use my cell phone as an alarm clock and leave the screen on all night with the display on text only and a black background.

I might notice some non-uniform coloration at low levels of white backgrounds in a very dark room, but I do not notice them in normal room lighting situations. Excellent color uniformity at low levels is very difficult to achieve in OLED technology and I would not classify this as a Nexus problem per se.

an unfortunate problem with our type of screen is non uniform solid color on low brightness.

Same thing was going on with the demo unit at the local corp store, which is why they force all phones, not just the galaxy to max brightness.

I have the same problem and someone replied with Verizon phones do not use wifi for mms. I just dropped it at that point since I either explained it wrong or they midunderstood the problem. I also had to switch to CDMA only.

Not sure if this issue has been discussed before. I google search different images and then try to set them up as my desktop but the resolution has been fuzzy and horrible. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Even when I click on the image for the full view, resolution still not crisp. Any ideas?

I have had my Nexus for less than a week and have had to do a battery pull twice, after it just goes dead on me and unresponsive.
Only real issue I have had, other than getting the Calendar to sync with my Google account.
This was solved by deleting the google profile from the Sync menu and re-entering the account details.
Oh and my battery life is poor, even by my old Iphone standards.

I saw this on the demo I played with, knowing it is common really turns me off. I understand what you mean by you can't unsee it.

Yes, it's loud and obnoxious, but I like it. Anyway, I'm sitting at my desk today with my headphones on, and my phone begins to ring. Just then, my coworker comes dancing into my cube. To my surprise the ringer plays through the external speaker even when headphones are connected. In fact, so do notifications and alarms.

My original droid would route ALL sound through the headphones when they are connected, which is what I expected the Galaxy Nexus to do also. Is this a bug, or a 'feature'? I really need ALL audio to route through the headphones when they are connected. HELP!!

-me
See... this happened to me, but then I realized the cord was only partially plugged into the slot. Not to say that's your issue too, but did you press firmly on the aux cord to ensure it was clicked in all the way? With my TPU case on, it really did appear to be plugged in fully until I slid the case over a millimeter and realized it wasn't. Just an idea! Sorry if it's not the fix! Next place I would look would be to exactly which app you used to play it... try a couple different ones and see if the issue persists.

I haven't had the issue, but while the WiFi ON setting does turn off the 3G/4G connection, it's still supposed to switch it back on for the duration of sending/receiving MMS messages. Not sure why they didn't catch that on the call. I haven't had the problem though, It's been working fine on mine. I'm also in a 3G only area though, with a Network Extender at the house running my services. Not sure if that makes a difference.

i dont know if this is an issue or not, but my gnex browsing is laggy when scrolling down a webpage and the lag increases with webpages that have more pictures. my DX had this problem but it was barely noticeable. my gnex is much more laggier than my old DX when it comes down to going through a webpage.

p.s. thanks for airdroid

I haven't noticed anything like this on my (second) Nexus, although I have medium-bad banding. My first one actually had a screen that looked REALLY great except that one part that was just slightly discolored. It was only visible on a solid color (not #000000 or #FFFFFF but anything in between) and otherwise the screen was PERFECT - it didn't even have any difficulties playing blacks in video, but that one spot was such an obvious flaw that I had to take it back.

This one does seem to be more efficient battery-wise though, and I don't watch a ton of videos so I think I'm ok with this one overall. I went threw this whole list and didn't notice any of these issues that others are having, at least not any that bother me enough to take this one back and risk getting one with more problems.

I would try going into your recent apps (with the button to the right of the home screen) and swiping away all of the other things in the list. Also, I've noticed Dolphin Browser HD is much faster surfing the web. Some people were having problems with it, but I don't think that's common. I've used it since the minute I got the phone and haven't had a single problem. Also try turning off GPS, NFC and things you don't use all the time. It'll save on battery and make your browsing speedier. Maybe a task killer if you're still having issues. They aren't necessary, but could help kick the little bit of lag you are seeing.

Yeah it seems like we are a couple of the lucky ones. So many issues people are having and I'm sitting here waiting for something to happen. And when it doesn't, instead of being happy, I'm onto waiting for something else to happen since 250 more people posted different issues, lol. I have an amazing screen (after one return), terrific 4G reception (when the network is up), volume that's neither great nor horrific, and a battery that I can live with. I don't know how long I can knock on wood before I just start enjoying my phone and stop waiting for something to happen, lol. Besides, we all know if anything happens it'll most likely be on January 16th, lol.

Have you ran it through a screen test? Every demo phone and friend's phone i've seen has some sort of color blotch especially visible at lowest light on a dark grey background.

Are there actual screen tests out there? I'd like to at least try it before the expiration on my return date runs out. But I'm guessing that if I can only see it during a screen test and can't notice it at all during heavy use, then I don't really care if there's something wrong with it, lol. But I guess I'd still like to know.

I just received my unlocked Nexus today and I must say I am not impressed with the screen at all. The screen on my HTC Vivid is much more crisp and clear.

No, but like others have said, why would I? I won't be able to unsee it, so I don't want to see it in the first place.

Some apps that put a lot of different colored backgrounds, especially trouble colors and some black and white - gray gradients etc.

I found that turning my screen up to full brightness on white and leaving the screen on for 20 minutes actually reduced the amount of blue present... might have to do this some more tomorrow.

That is the exact setup I have. I called Verizon and the support rep reset my mms settings on there end and it helped a lot. She even sent me test mms messages to make sure it worked.

It's imap, but I didn't realize it would be different for each one. Either way, I know the Nexus One and Nexus S supposedly had a lot of issues with pop accounts.

If there truly isn't any search option in pop, which it's looking more and mroe that way, then my only suggestion would be to get a G-Mail address, have all of the mail from your current address forwarded there (it works well for me) and then you have imap'd gmail on the phone. Makes sense to me at least!

Good luck! -AJ

There's an issue with calendar entries in the stock calendar app - it won't let you scroll the description field to view the full entry description. This is particularly annoying for work Exchange accounts, which often contain valuable conference bridge dial-in numbers in the description. I've managed to move the description field *a little* by moving my finger right and left while I scroll, but that's hardly user friendly and it still just barely works.

I submitted a bug report to Google, and would appreciate it if folks start starring it to get it attention:
Issue 23366 - android - Calendar entry descriptions not scrollable in Android 4.0.2 - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting

Default Headphone Issues

Anyone else have a loose headset jack or something going on? Feels very cheap and makes the music go in and out....unacceptable...I will definitely be returning for the rezound or razr if this is not just an isolated problem. Also, no FM radio comes with the phone? WTH..I know I can download a tune in app or something, but all phones should have this including and HDMI port...

Thanks for the suggestion. I confirmed that my headphone jack is firmly seated. I even tried a second set of headphones. The ringer/notification audio plays through the external speaker even when headphones are plugged in.

The only work-around I've found is to use Tasker. I set up an event that turns down the ringer/notification volume whenever headphones are plugged in. And it reverts the sound back to normal when the headphones are removed. Next, I added events for incoming call, text message, and email to play sounds through the media stream (the media stream seems to behave correctly when headphones are plugged in - only playing sound through the headphones). Anyway, it's a hack but it will keep me going until this bug is resolved. I've got to give a big thumbs up to Tasker, it is a pretty powerful little app.

One thing that "might" be worth trying is to turn the screen on full brightness for an hour or two. I know when Iphone 3s? first came out they had a similar issue but it disappeared after a couple days of heavy use.

Note: this may not apply to this issue YMMV

(Non-rooted 4.0.2 ICS, Default settings [at least ones that may be related to rendering graphics])

Is anyone experiencing this problem? My phone is super fast, everything seems fresh and snappy as I'd expect. Except... I'm starting to see a "stutter" or "lag" after pressing a selection in a settings menu (The typical dark background and blue illuminated highlight) I don't really notice it in 3rd party apps, just everything Google.

For example, I go into settings and click sound. As it highlights blue it seems to stutter on the fade out / fade into the new screen. It's only a half second delay, but its enough that it's noticeable.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Well "me", if that is your real name, lol... I agree about Tasker - absolutely terrific app. And I'm glad you found a work-around for now. As for anyone who is considering taking the phone back because of little issues during the first week and a half of the phone's launch, that's your decision and you're more than entitled to it. As for me, any issues-big or small-that I've found are definitely not "deal breakers" in my eyes. With 4.0.3 sure to be released soon, I'm expecting many of these little things to be corrected. I don't think there is a phone out there that will get the kind of support from Google as the Nexus will, so just keep that in mind as you switch back to older devices. As the updates become few and far between during the 18-month window the other phones have, the Nexus will most likely be receiving more and more. But, you're the one stuck looking at the phone day in and day out, so if you don't want to wait to see what the next couple updates have in store, that's understandable. I'll definitely be waiting, but that's easy for me to say, as I have had barely any issues and my only complaints are minute in comparison to some of the problems I've read on here.

OK I am having a problem with autosync, and it seems like some others have it as well, but I've not seen it mentioned in this thread.

It seems like auto syncing just doesn't work for me at all. I thought at first that light flow was broken, then I realized that light flow couldn't be giving me notifications because my phone didn't even realize I had new emails. I manually synced >30 minutes ago and it still hasn't autosynced since then. I don't know the normal frequency of syncing, but I assume it should be faster than that. I even restarted the phone and it didn't sync after it started back up.

FWIW I am rooted, and sadly I didn't really notice if it was syncing properly before I did it. I did get a few notifications, but I don't know how frequently it was going because I don't get all that many texts/emails.

Another potential problem is that I have a lot of apps that I'm afraid might be interfering, so I'm gonna test what happens if I uninstall them. Light Flow and Juice Defender are at the top of my list...

Anyone else having problems with auto sync?

Had this same issue. Took forever to reconnect to data.

Would be nice if there was 1 click access to airplane mode in the widget instead of clicking through 3 screens

hold down the power button for a few seconds and airplane mode is a one click option

Looking in the forums I see several with this issues but no one else testing with Wi+Fi on or off.
I never realized I had this problem too, but I think it is a problem with ICS and how it handles the Wifi. My friend and me can't send or receive MMS while on Wifi either. So I think the phone isn't properly turning on 3g/4g to do that while Wifi is on...

However, my girlfriend can't send or receive them on Wifi OR 3g/4g without getting force closes... Weird issue. Trying to get Verizon to reset her texting plan now and then if that doesn't work then we will have to get a replacement unit...

That might explain why the store phone that I tested looked perfect in low brightness. I have a light to very light banding, so I might try your method before I try an exchange.

Edit: Oh, if I do an exchanged, can the store transfer my apps and setting to the new phone or do I need to go through installing all my apps and setting them up again. I do not mind installing the apps, but it is such a hassle to export setting and to import then into the new phone.

Go into Settings->Accounts & sync and check if your Google account is set up to sync.

Sync can also be shut off through the control widget.

Pictures that look great on the web can look fuzzy on a screen with higher resolution. So a picture from Google images needs to be quite large to look good on your phone. You are better off taking a pic with the phone's camera and using that.

yeah everything is set to sync, that's how I can tell the last sync was 3 hours ago for everything. If I use the widget to turn auto-sync off and then on again then it'll sync at the moment, but it won't actually sync on its own. Except for Reader, which is weird.

I think I'm gonna try unrooting next and see if that fixes it.

good afternoon. long time lurker on here. was following the long Gnex for quite some time. finally got the phone on monday

unfortunately there were some problems with my gnex and i had to bring into the store. it was purchased directly from verizonwireless btw.

the phone was acting weird on me yesterday. it was doing random reboots throughout the day. then last night i was playing videos on youtube and all of sudden the phone restarted on me. it continued to do so for about 5 mins. it would boot up, and then restart. once it was done with its 'seizures', i tried going back into youtube and playing the video. now this time the video would play, but no sound! tried other videos but still nothing. and no i didnt have the phone on vibrate or silent either. i went into settings, sounds, and had the media tab turned all the way up! no sound was being produced though.

i also tried making an outgoing call but could not hear anything. the call was connected but no ringtone or anything

brought the gnex into the store today and they gave me a new phone. anyone else have problems like this? only apps i had installed was lightflow lite, weather widget, and a couple basic apps like facebook, pandora, etc.

Will report back....
I've got the same wifi issue. If I leave wifi on and then leave my house or work and try to connect to the internet/market/on star app it says no connection. I checked within the settings and the data enabled over mobile network is still checked, but it's not actually working.

My third still has blue in the bottom right hand corner but compared to the other two it was bearable. Everyone i know with a nexus has some sort of green,blue, or red coloration somewhere on your screen. Look for it, low light, white background. Once you see it you can't unsee it.

I have to say the screen is the biggest disappointment with this phone. I see people saying it's the best screen ever and I shake my head. I don't think those people have seen many screens.

If it's not up to full brightness (sucks the battery) then the screen looks mediocre. The Rezound has a much better screen.

My goodness it gets warm when I'm talking on the phone. At first I thought I was just having another hot flash.....but then I realized it's only my EAR that's on fire. Normal?? Something that will be fixed?

Default Phone turning off by itself

I've had my Nexus for a few days now and the only problem I've had so far is when I'm using the stock browser. Several times while on the internet the phone will just shutoff for no reason and I have to turn the phone back on.
It seems this maybe be a software issue and I wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem.
