    not sure if flaw or feature - when running an app that has a settings button in the lower right corner (three vertical dots)
    After waking from sleep- the lock screen shows a settings button in the same location and pressing the settings button unlocks the phone. also shows the notification bar on the lock screen.

    Yeah, that's basically a hardware issue. I'd definitely exchange it for a new one.

    Ugh. I was having issues yesterday with screen brightness being out of whack and so exchanged it.

    Now I'm having the same issues with artifacts in video and with overall lagginess that I didn't have the first time.

    This is sometimes a consequence of the video codec trying to squeeze too much image out of too little data (too highly compressed). Are you seeing general connectivity or data rate issues? How does speedtest.net look for you?

    Good luck, and my regards to Cheetara.

    although it would appear to be a hardware issue, i've read multiple reports stating that this happened after rooting, and return to stock corrected the problem. unfortunately i don't remember which forum(s) i saw this, but had to be one of these: Droidforums, XDA or RootzWiki.

    EDIT: here's one

    connectivity and 4G are outstanding. Consistently getting around 21 down, 17 up.

    I'm going for a second exchange now, after having spoken to the store rep.

    Hope that third time's the charm.

    Something i noticed this morning and read in another thread: a few seconds after a sound effect, the speaker "clicks", as if the sound controller is turning off or something. It's very faint and you probably wouldnt notice it walking around somewhere busy. i only noticed it just now with my room dead quiet.

    original thread found here: http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-nexus/448875-galaxy-nexus-clicking-noise.html

    Since I picked up this phone Friday I am lucky to get a signal or data. Never more than 1 bar if that and constant data outage on 4 or 3G. And it's wherever I am. Tried factory reset no luck. Just talked to Verizon tech support and they told me to go to store and try a new sim card and/or get a new device.

    He stated it is a Known Issue with the phone and they are working on a software update.:mad:l.... All this wait now I have a phone I can't use more than 50% of the time...

    Echoing this issue as well.

    I'm thinking that it can at least be tweaked a bit with a software patch. I had the same issue with my Galaxy Tab 10.1, and one of the maintenance updates Samsung sent out made the popping a lot quieter. I think all units act this way, however I do believe that some units pop more loudly than others. Being an audio engineer, I can tell you that with speakers, even identical models, no two speakers will ever sound completely alike. There are always variances, as small as they may be. And also, some people's ears (like mine) are more sensitive than others, hence why not everyone is chiming in on it.

    To partially remedy this, I did turn off the selection sounds and it made it a lot better. I usually do this anyway (I don't need to hear a sound every time I tap on something), and it has greatly helped. I still get it after every notification, but only notice it when I'm in a quiet room.

    The lock screen delay doesn't work.

    Does anyone's back on the phone have a little give when pressed by the battery? It kind of clicks in and out like it doesn't fit perfectly. Went to VZW and they said every phone does that. Is that true? If you have a case on it it's a non issue.

    Mine is solid as a rock when I press down in any area, including battery.

    No giving way at all.

    SOB, I'm so pissed. That effin' vzw store is awful. I'm calling right now and have them note my account to replace the cover and I'm going back there. Better chill a little first though.

    And yes, I do consider that an issue cause it bugs me and shouldn't be.

    Maybe the problem is that you or the VRW CSR broke one of the tabs off the back?

    It's not on the side where the tabs are, but right in the middle, to the lower left of the camera lens. (just checked, no tabs broken) I'm going back now, thanks guys.

    I have a little give right by the camera lens too. Maybe they were right?

    Yeah, I have the three dots on the lockscreen too, not sure why. The notification bar is supposed to be visible on the lockscreen, though. It's one of the touted features of ICS, that you can access your notifications without unlocking.

    Has anyone tried airplane mode yet? I put mine in A.M. today and I couldn't get it out. Had to reboot, after which it got a signal no problem. Not sure if this was an isolated incident or a widespread problem.

    I do too. If you press the cover right below the flash it pushes in and goes flush against the phone. If you don't there's a little gap. Happens on mine both with the regular back and the extended battery back

    I think my screen is messed up though...:( I think I'm gonna have to get a replacement. I guess then I'll find out if they all have this battery cover issue.

    Did you change the default settings for mail that you sync? Don't recall what the default is however I have changed mine to two weeks and it is pulling down all my email.

    You can do this either in the mail app or from accounts area in settings. Once in your email account select the Exchange option and under the Data Usage section you can change the Days To Sync.

    I'm using Office365 Exchange hosting from MS without any issues.

    Haha I do too!

    Didn't notice that. Its very slight though, and I think its because of the flexibility of the hyper skin, which also allows for the ability to peel the cover off when needed.

    Doesn't bother me though.

    I had a crappy display and I did exchange twice because of it.

    I'm happy with it now.
