After making a call and hanging up, the screen dims and goes off. Anyone experienced this? Also, after receiving an incoming call and hanging up, the screen doesn't lock itself like in previous versions.

A couple minor issues I have seen in the month I have had it:

Double text messages, happens quite frequently.

When on an app with the three dot menu button at the bottom right, if phone locks, upon turning the screen back on, the menu button is still visible, and with slide to unlock, the menu button will also unlock the phone. (Doesn't occur on more secure locking methods, so I don't consider this a security issue).

3G to 4G handoff isn't perfect, Occasionally will get stuck on 3G in areas I know has 4G, and I have to toggle airplane mode to get 4G to come back.

Default Widgets on Nexus

Hello can anyone help me? I have two questions, 1st one I took my phone into Verizon to get a case and screen protectors. As she was looking at my phone she noticed that I have Lookout downloaded and she said that I need to uninstall that app ASAP or I will have problems down the road with my phone. I had Lookout on my Droid X and did not have any problems. She said that the androids already have virus protection. Can anyone tell me if they know whether or not Lookout will cause problems with the android system. 2nd question is I installed 3D flip clock and the 3rd package and when I open it it takes me to a page that tells me how to install the widget. I cannot open the widget to install it. How do I get to the widgets? PLEASE HELP!!!
Thank you,
Jackie

1. Personally, I don't like lookout, its not needed IMO. that said it should cause any issues with your phone...

2. Widgets instal different on ICS, click the app icon at the bottom of the screen, if you look at the app screen there is a "widget" tab at the top, "long" press the widget you want and drag it to your home screen.

Default Storage calculation issues

I couldn't find a thread about this issue yet but my VZW SGN seems to have issues calculating my storage. When I go to settings/storage it shows internal storage, total space and available right away but all the other categories (apps, pictures/videos, audio, etc) show "calculating", for several minutes before showing how much storage is being used by each item. I'm only using about 1.75 GB of storage on 28.13 GB of total available space so it seems like a long time to calculate that much storage. I assume this is only going to get worse as I use up more storage. Anyone else having this issue?

Thanks!

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?
I was having this problem as well. Whenever I locked my phone and unlocked it, my signal bars would be grey. Data would work fine, but Gmail wouldn't recieve emails until my phone was unlocked and bars turned blue.

I disabled Juice Defender and that seemed to solve the issue for me. Just registered to share that

That's exactly how JD is supposed to work and where it's big battery savings come. For some, this isn't a crippling experience. For others, such as me and apparently you, it is, which I why I also stopped using JD.

I see that nobody complains about a basic function for a phone not a smartphone. My Galaxy Nexus vibrating level is very low. When is in vibrate mode only and somebody is calling me and i have my phone in the pocket there is no chance to feel it. In fact if my phone is on the table on vibrate mode and somebody is calling you can't hear nothing at all. I can feel the phone in vibrate mode only in my hand but very low.... It is only my phone like this ?

I don't think thin smartphone are suppose to be strong vibrators. If it was thicker I could see your point but since a vibrator needs space to spin I think this is normal.

Had mine for about a month now, too, and I can confirm these issues, except I don't get the double text messages.

Also, the "recent apps" soft-button has an unacceptable amount of lag.

And I've recently noticed that whatever glass is used is not very "finger-drag-friendly" (hope that makes sense).

And the lightflow app works quite well, except that when the LED lights up, it isn't crisp like the default white LED was... instead, it almost looks like a lightbulb that is struggling, and about to die.

And finally, can somebody PLEASE tell me when the effing 4.0.3 OTA update is coming??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I just read on Android Police that the XOOM tablet got it today. I thought Nexus devices were supposed to be first!!

Anyone having an issue listening to MP3s through a local player i.e. playerpro? I have been noticing that periodically music will start clicking or get jumpy or even have static noise when playing back and the screen is off. As soon as I turn the screen on the issue is immediately resolved. It seems to happen only with the screen off and only some of the time. Turning the screen back on immediately resolves the issue...

Thoughts? Anyone else experience this?

I have had some serious issues using the usb to hdmi ouput feature of this phone. I would recommend to add MHL adapter problems to the list. A lot of people are reporting flicker and signal loss while using this function.

This issue occurs regardless of location, signal strength or any other possibilities. Reboot does not fix. Problem resumes with exact same display of 'downloading' apps after clearing cache and Force closing.

Anyone help?
Go to settings, data service or whatever (sry I don't have the phone with me) find the MMS and MOWAP settings, and switch the proxy on the MOWAP to nothing.

Does anyone have an issue with the camera under the following conditions:

Open camera app and be in portrait mode for stills.
Take some pics in portait mode.
Switch to landscape mode and take some pics.
Hit your home button
Run some other app, wordfeud or moboplayer as an example
Turn off the screen.
Turn the screen back on.
Try to open the camera app.

For me, often it shows a locked view as if it tried to open in landscape mode and didn't know how to flip back to portrait. You try to hit "home" and it won't go as if the camera app has stopped working.

Eventually I get a message that it can't connect to the camera.

Only solution is to reboot and then go back in, which is time consuming and annoying when you are trying to snap a quick photo.

AM i the only one experiencing this issue? Stock rom, no unlocks/no rooting.

my issues - purchased just before christmas from mobicity - unlocked GSM 3G version.

random lock-ups necesitating removal of battery, and rebooting by itself every now and then. also sometimes will become unresponsive (for instance the camera application wouldn't load, had to reboot for it to work again)

screen too sensitive to rotating to landscape mode but really hesitant to change back to portrait

when importing contact data from contacts saved on the SIM card it only imports the first number loaded for each contact, where most my contacts would have home, work, mobile saved. el cheapo sony ericsson was able to import all contact details

when using the standard music player, sometimes songs will sound distorted (like a static or chopping up) when the screen goes to standby, but pressing power button to bring up unlock screen restores the sound quality

wifi bar display will loose its 'sections' and turns into one whole shape (if that makes sense), and will remain grey despite data being transferred via WiFi. I think this may be related to easy battery saver as I noticed it happening after I installed it

the battery cover raises up slightly on one side as if a clip is not clipped in (it's one of the hook ones) yet I was very careful to first fit the cover. cover is very fiddly to fit.

when calling someone on skype the recipient couldn't hear me, but after re-starting the phone and calling again they could. has happened frequently and I have to re-start the phone every time, regardless how many times I close/log out of skype or call the recipient before hand.

sometimes the screen locker is erratic, I could be browsing a site and the screen will go from bright to dim then back to bright again and then will lock, takes about 10-15 seconds to do so from when last scrolling on the page to when the screen locks itself. I have the screen lock time out set to 60 seconds.

I noticed that the notification LED would turn green for SMS messages and white for e-mails, but now new SMS only show up as a slow white flash of the LED yet facebook messenger will still show up a solid green.

the random reboots and camera lock are extremely irritating and need to be addressed by whomever (google or samsung) immediately. other than that, the phone has no other major issues. the signal going from 3g to 4g could use some speedier improvement, but less critical than the random reboots and camera failures

Default Google Voice Search Not Working, Server Problem

I searched Galaxy Nexus Forum but returned no match. It seems I'm the only one having this problem, though google returned the same problem from other phones. My Google Voice Search is not working anymore. It worked before. But for now it returned Server Problem instantly. I tried to clean up Google Search Cache, reboot, as suggested by others. But none helps. Appreciate if anyone can shed a light! It's a shame that one of the most attracting features is not working.

A have a strange one

when i click my stock music app (headphones icon) in the app drawer it doesn't open my music player, it opens the last app i was running, be it browser, market, zedge, whatever.

In order to play music i had to add the music widget to a homescreen. I can play songs from there, or i can click the name and it launches music. This also seems to have fixed the problem with the icon now.

Strange.

Here are a few:

1. Contact list not accessible in Messaging / Email apps

When composing a message to multiple recipients you canít select them from a list. It works if you type the first two letters of their name, but this requires you to accurately remember everyone in your phone Ė not always the case when youíre doing a spur-of-the moment invite to the pub, etc.

2. Errors in autocorrect and word completion

Quite a few here. Adding a new word to the dictionary positions the cursor in the middle of the word; inserting a hyphen after a word inserts a space whether you want it or not; correcting a word converts it to a string of numbers.

3. Calendar Widget will not display month view on home screen

4. No lock for volume control

It would be nice to be able to select a profile (ie silent, vibrate only) and have it stay on that profile, whether or not you bump the volume buttons

Don't know if you're still following this thread, MysterX, but if you wouldn't mind exporting those profiles and sharing them with me I'd certainly appreciate it -- if you haven't hit on another solution yet.

Don't know if its been mentioned... Has anyone experienced where the phone's screen becomes unresponsive on the lock screen? (I hit the power button, screen came on, I went to slide unlock and it wouldn't recognize the fact I was touching the screen. So I held down the power button for reboot, still no response. So i had to do a battery pull) Also, right after that happened, I had no cellular connection (Voice or Data) for a couple minutes. Eventually it came back on.

Anyone else experience this?

^^^ Actually yes, same thing happened to me yesterday for the first time since getting the GNex 12/20. Hoping it was a one-time fluke. Didn't experience the connection issue tho.

Default New issue - sound/calls not working

So this has happened to me and others on XDA as well:

Symptoms: You can't hear people on a phone call, and they can't hear you. Also, no "media" sounds work - pretty much any sound made by an app (but the ringer, notification, and alarms still make sound). Also, the phone can't hear you via Google Voice Actions.

Problem: The phone thinks that a headphone (with a mic) has been plugged in. If you're familiar with Tasker, you can have Tasker alert you when headphones are plugged in and you'll see the notification go on/off several times a day.

To reproduce: I don't think you can do this - it's likely a short in the phone by the headphone sensor.

The fix: Various - some report a battery pull fixes it, others say cleaning the mic, and others say a full wipe. For me, a full factory reset did not work. I re-flashed everything to stock images, unlocked/relocked bootloader, and even played with other ROMs once I realized I'd be returning the thing. I'm now waiting on my refurbed unit (I already exchanged my Nexus once due to a stuck pixel, VZW won't give me another new one). Also, there are apps that will reset the headphone sensor via software, which has limited success.

I just wanted to post this because there are so many symptoms it can easily lead you down the wrong path. But if all media sounds don't work, or your speakerphone cuts in and out, this is probably your problem.

Notsure Galaxy Nexus Issues

For me the issue no.2 is very realistic.
The nexus has connectivity problems. The network signal keeps on breaking.
My data usage plan is very good but i cant use it because i'm not getting the exact speed, as my data plan. the speed seems to be much poor than 2g.
My PC sometimes does not recognize the nexus and after trying for 3 to 5 times it does get searched and connected.
So i think nexus has connectivity problems.

I noticed this today on my week old GNex, plugged into my car charger then 3.5mm audio out jack to my cars input jack and playing Slacker radio, unplugged it from the car charger because i was hearing the alternator whine through the car speakers (never heard this before with same charger and DroidX ), and i lose almost all audio, i can literally hear my left and rear speakers cut out and only get audio through my right front door speaker, plug the charger back in and walla, i have sound all around...plays fine with the included headphones as well and on speakerphone...

nevermind, darned jack was not all the way in on the stereo side....

odd, my phone is the exact opposite, the speakers are so rediculously loud that i need to turn it down to zero and still hold it away from my ear

Transfer speed slow...

Try switching to USB debugging mode. 1.24 gb prior to switch - 1 hour initial time shown. After the switch - 8 1/2 minutes initial time. Actual time was just under 4 minutes.

Sorry if that was posted before. I was on page one of seven when I hit the reply button...

My wife has this problem. She is on her 3rd Nexus. Speech to text works fin the first time it is used but next time it is "server problem." We have tried rebooting and factory data reset to no avail. Verizon tech service hasn't been able to solve it either. My own Nexus, purchased just a few weeks earlier works perfectly. Both phones running Android 4.02.

Just wanted to stop in and mention the issues I am consistently having with my GN:

1. Sometimes if I turn the screen off when the camera is on, the camera will be frozen when I turn the screen back on. It won't respond if I close/open the camera app and I have to restart the phone to get the camera to work again. Very bad bug that causes me to miss photo opportunities.

2. Google Music will sometimes have clicks in the audio when the screen is off. I believe this only happens with mp3s made from 48kHz wav/aiff files. It makes them unlistenable.

3. Sometimes clicking an app icon will open a most recently used app, not the app it's supposed to open. For example, I click Google Music, and GTasks opens. It will continue doing that until I restart the phone.

Here's the only issue I'm having with my SGN, and it's one that quite frankly I don't care about 99% of the time. However, the 1% I do want it, it's very fustrating:

Nothing I do on facebook mobile works. Can't upload pictures. Can't update status. Can't "check in". Can't do anything. The only thing I can do is get past the log in screen. Whenever I scroll through the timeline thingy, it freezes and gives me "Unfortunately, Facebook has stopped working."

Anyone else had this? It sounds like nobody has. Could it be my phone? This one stupid feature is really making me mad...

Wow, same with me as well. My wife just returned her third phone purchased through Amazon Wireless. All three immediately returned "server problem" when trying to perform a voice search or text. My nexus, bought a few months ago works perfectly. We are hoping to get a different batch from Costco and that it will work.

Changing the language to UK English did fix the problem, but then when voice texting, it will spell in British English (like colour instead of color) which my wife was not too fond of

Strange.
I had the same exact problem. Google Music icon in app drawer and widget would not work most of the time. Clicking either opened up the previous app. I added shortcuts to my playlists on my home screen to avoid having to open the app itself and that works fine for me.

I am struggling with the brightness issues, I have the maximum brightness but the screen look s very dull, the photo snaps also look very dull. i have also checked the same with Nexus Prime and S but the issue is the same, but the same photo taken on a Nokia Lumia looks very impressive and beautiful.
Why is the dullness consistent in all the Samsung phones, is the gorilla screen a big issue or is it the OS supports only that level of brightness ?

For me, the biggest shortcoming of ICS is the inability to handle standard meeting requests in the gmail app. I'm on ICS 4.0.4 and all of my other problems have been solved. Not being able to use native gmail app to accept a meeting request sent from Microsoft Outlook is a real shortcoming.

Default 3-way calling

I'm having a problem with 3-way calling which renders it virtually useless. When you are on a call and then add a third party to the call it is very difficult for the original two callers to hear the third. Unless the third party speaks very loudly their voice will be "squelched" out. In other words it completely cuts out until they raise their voice and keep it at a high level through out the entire call.

Anyone else experiencing this?

My wife got a Galaxy Nexus at the end of December and it's recently started having an annoying issue during voice calls. I just finished reading through the thread to make sure no one mentioned it already and I didn't see anything, though I've seen mention in other forums around the web.

Basically, on outgoing or incoming calls, there are a lot of crackling, popping and screeching noises, making it difficult, if not impossible, to hear the other person. She seems to have less on her end than the other caller does, as she's able to understand well enough what's being said. I just confirmed that with a test and she only gets what sounds like highly-compressed audio, like Skype gets sometimes, while I get crackling, popping and screeching completely covering her voice up.

This does not seem to be related to the charger being plugged in or not, and she doesn't use headphones with her phone. It also doesn't matter if it's speakerphone or not. It's also random; not always there and not always at full strength.

I recommended to her that she take it to Verizon, but that'll have to wait a day or so.

SOLD this thing off....it sucks worse than anyone!


Nexus sucks and sluggish! Nexus is just too pure of an Android ICS! It's not user friendly at all. A lot of functions are missing compared to Motorola, Samsung, HTC's Android powered phone.

Furthermore, most of the Android Market's apps are not compartible with ICS yet and they don't work with the pure ICS on Nexus! For example, TouchPal keyboard screwed up big time on Nexus!

I got a Nexus for a week and was so frustrated that even a basic function likes Group SMS isn't there for stock Messge.app. So, I sold my Nexus after a week while the price is still hot before everyone started dumping their Nexus and flood the market with disappointing Nexus which would lower the resale price!

Nexus is for developers. It's not for ordinary folks on the street.

At the end, I got myself a HTC phone, my 3rd HTC models, and got my girl friend the Samsung Galaxy Note.

Most are not compatible? Probably... However, I would say 99% of apps that have issued updates since the release of the Nexus are compatible... so that includes pretty large chunk of the market, and more realistically - the best apps and most frequently used ones are compatible.

This isn't true, I just did a group sms from my phone the other day.

Yeah... It's been out for over 3 months now, so I would say congrats on your resale, but it's not exactly like you were striking the iron while it was hot... more like lukewarm.
