    Seems to be an LED issue, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Oh and when it does work it blinks way too slow.

    Light Flow solves some of the problems but it too has some issues with ICS.

    Ah, you younglings. :)

    This is exactly how its supposed to work. Yes, that pop is there by design. The animation is that of an old style tube TV. You got the pop after it shut down.

    I have been playing heavy gunner without any of those "bugs".

    Everytime I pull out of my driveway and the wifi disconnects it also disables data access over mobile network. Have to manually go in Mobile networks settings and recheck the data enabled box. Edit: Not rooted

    I think people should also report if they are rooted and so on or not when claiming there is a bug. As we all know that can cause problems with they way these phones operate.

    Yikes! As much as I hate to say this, I am seriously considering returning this phone and going back to my TB. I just don't see any improvement in speed, signal, battery life, or functionality. The screen is basically... crappy unless you bypass auto and go 50% or better. And it's not like I got this for free either. I paid $249 + tax. That's a lot of money to me for no great benefit. I was all into this, followed the mammoth thread and all that went with it. But I need someone to talk me out of returning this tomorrow.

    As an aside, I kept my TB on wifi, syncing everything as before, just no mobile data or voice. That was Thursday morning. Not plugged in since then and sitting at 52% batt... 3+ whole days. I was in an area with great 4G today on the GN and the batt didn't drop as much as I'm used to on the. VZW needs to get their network in order. It's not the phone or device, it's the shitey network that is draining us. Find some posts from OTD for the explanation, she's onto something. Rezound, prolly not, the TB will do just fine. It's not been a fun few days for devices. (and all my teams lost today.. don't ask)

    My crappy charge can handle large text for email. You would think the Nexus could. I hope they fix this issue :(

    By the way the paid version of volume+ really helps the rear speaker issue. $1.65.

    I love to stream my loaded music all day (I have lots of songs). Here's the problem:

    I loaded all my music into the "Music" folder of Nexus. Nicely organized into artist and album folders. When I went into ^3 Cubed (my music player of choice), only a fraction of the music actually shows up! For example: out of 15 Pink Floyd albums on the phone, only THREE show up in the player.

    I deleted everything in the folder, rebooted, and then loaded 4 test albums that had not been previously found. Rebooted again.

    It still couldn't find them! Said there is no music in the playlist! :eek: :mad:

    Now before you jump on the app as not ICS-compliant, this is where the plot thickens: I went into the stock Google Music app and clicked "Offline Music Only". Out of the 4 test albums on the phone, it found exactly NONE of them!

    I have no idea why some albums can be seen while most cannot. Everything shows up in my ONLINE collection (did that previously) but Android 4.0 seems to have a tremendous problem with seeing all music ON THE PHONE.

    The software buttons have already disappeared completely on me one time (necessitating a restart), and I've only had this phone for 2 hours... hope this isn't a sign of things to come.

    It was after clicking a YouTube link in gchat, although clicking the same link again hasn't reproduced the problem yet.

    You know the 4 shortcuts that travel with you from screen to screen on the bottom? Well I added a folder there for text messages and also for texting my girlfriend. When I open it and text her that works fine, however when I open and select text message it often just opens the most recent app and not the text message app it is supposed to open.

    You sure you're not fat fingering it and hitting the recent apps button?

    100% sure, besides if I was then the recent apps would pop up instead of one specific app only

    not rooted

    FWIW I just tested my GN with Antutu multi touch test and I do NOT have this issue.

    I did the multi touch test on my TB and its really bad!

    I won't have my Gnex for a couple of days so I will test it then.

    I didn't see a response, but I apologize if this has been answered. My only suggestion would be to download a terrific app I've had for a very long time now, called "Verizon WiFi Auto-On". As suggested by the title, it's made by Verizon and does a great job of ensuring your WiFi is on when you are at home, and vice versa. Now most WiFi will set up automatically anyway, but this just ensures you use as little mobile data as possible, and may be just the thing to remove the glitch you've been noticing. Hope it helps! Take care & Happy Holidays!

    So I have an issue with my screen and was wondering if anyone else had something like it.

    Basically, I notice it most clearly when it's on a solid color (not black) but especially on grays. There's a rather large discolored area on one side - on my phone it covers about 1/6 of the screen. The attachment I included is not a screenshot or anything it's just an MS paint approximation of what it looks like.

    It's not that it's grainy or anything, but that there's actually a whole large area that's a slightly different color. I can't even see it most of the time, but it does bug me when it shows up and if I ever want to change it up I imagine it would hurt resale value.

    Anyone else seeing anything like this?

    So Im even more confused about my problem now. As I stated earlier when I pull out of the driveway and wifi disconnects it also turns off my mobile network connection. To add to the confusion my truck radio also has bluetooth. I left the house earlier and the issue didn't happen (first time ever) but while I was gone I turned the bluetooth off for a different reason and bam it also disconnected my mobile data. So Im not sure if my issue is bluetooth or wifi related. Gonna turn off bluetooth before I get in the truck in the morning and see if I have the same issue when I drive out of wifi range. Will report back....

    I've had the same thing happen a number of times. It seems like a glitch. If you click the button that shows all your open apps, and dismiss them all, all is back to normal. Shouldn't have to do that though.

    I also experience issue #1 with the file transfer timeouts. I was trying to push my old pictures out to the GN using Windows 7 file explorer and it would copy about 3 pics then throw an error. I was, however, able to use windows media player to do a sync of pictures and music and that worked fine other than you really cannot control where the files end up...so my pictures did not go into the dcim folder but into the pictures folder. I can live with this but it just seems like a strange feature to not have working.
