good morning minions of the Nexus. any updates through out the night?
Okay, all caught up. No change from yesterday afternoon. Going to get ready to fly today... my buddy fixed his little parachute guy and one of the planes I have is capable of carrying him, so I have to bring that one today. I also want to put a test-flight on my Blackhawk. Then it's home for a quick dinner and watching the Giants/Eagles game tonight at 8:30. I'm so nervous... the Eagles are in a sad state right now but this is also the time of year the Giants start their annual decline. Go Giants!
See youse later this evening, fellow GNexers!
Just saw this, AppleInsider | Galaxy Nexus web benchmarks outpace iPhone 4S as 'Woz' picks up early copy
this A.M. and thought was interesting read.
Can you/someone explain how it could be software and not hardware.
Hey Han? Try removing the YouTube video from your quoted post and see if that helps... it helped me a few hundred pages back.
When I removed the s from https from the youtube video it fixed some of it for me.
Hey guys, I was on vacation for a week (cruise, no internet), anyone care to give me an overview what I missed? Was hoping I would come home to be able to buy a nexus, guess not
Yikes! Gorgeous phone by the way, but yikes!
I can only see it being a hardware issue if the volume rocker itself is sticking, or if there is a conflict in the chipset. You would THINK that such a hardware issue would have come up in early testing, though.
I'm leaning toward a software issue, as ICS has final control over the functions of the phone - including volume. Seems to me that ICS is, for some reason, resetting the volume down to zero: every time you turn it up, the software takes it back down.
Should be a relatively quick fix... unless the fix affects something else. Which - in the case of something as complex as ICS - could be very well happening.
THIS, doesn't look good. Just seems odd that none of the reviews of the phone prior to release mentioned any sort of problem like this. Seems like if this was a hardware design problem, it would have shown up LONG before now. I mean there is no telling how long Google employees and execs have been using this phone daily.
Hopeful its software.
some sources saying this week. some saying not until Dec. 8th.
Confusion on 16gb and 32gb
Volume problem with phones for our friends overseas.
thread was locked down for an hour.
still nothing really.
Just read this article on ABC news:
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Android Smartphone - ABC News
I thought this was interesting:
"Inside Galaxy is a fast 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, plus 16GB of internal memory (double that, I'm told, on the LTE version)."
Maybe the smart engineers over at Verizon think this is occurring because it has TOO MUCH internal memory..... so they removed the other 16gb, LOL
It could be something like key debounce or another component of the A/V subsystem code writing to the wrong property of the volume API... Too many possibilities to list but that's "how" it 'could' be s/w. It could just as easily be h/w - bad switch, case torsion/flexion affecting switch operation, etc.
Edit: ...and Good morning everybuddy
Thank you, I was more than a little worried. Now if it is a software thing why not just release and OTA.
The issue (clickable above the video) seems to imply the issue is most often seen when the phone is connected via 2G, is streaming something, and loses its WiFi connection or WiFi is turned off. So I suspect some firmware driver updates will fix this pretty soon. Looks to need a Samsung driver fix, to me.
I don't know much about what would be indicative of software vs. hardware, but in reading the problem reports submitted to google, it appears to be a problem with how streaming data on 2G is handled. Us Verizon folk should have a totally different radio, and be on LTE all the time , so I'm hoping we won't experience this problem too. If we do, at least we'll get the update from Google quicker.
Edit: partial ninja'd
my post counter keeps changing but i dont see updated posts what the heck?
Thanks for sharing. Yet another good read, and more motivation to continue holding out. I will wait as long as my dying Droid will allow.
RAWRRRR! Today starts the beginning of a new week. The week that is rumored that our Nexus will release. Or it could be next week on Cyber Monday. Either way, we're only a week away!
Well, the OTA may not be ready. The software fix that resolves the volume control might, for example, interfere with the display drivers. Can you imagine how many people will return their phones and get something else rather than wait for a fix? Verizon, Google and Samsung would take a huge bath on Nexus.
I listen to my mp3s on my phone all day, every day. That would flat-out drive me nuts! Can't hear people on a call, either. It's a beautiful paperweight without that fix in place - a fix that doesn't break something else. Waiting days, weeks or even months for a fix would be unacceptable. It's a potential mega-Bionic.
It's kinda pathetic that most of the major news sources (Abc CNN etc.) are talking about the Nexus while Verizon sits quiet on the subject.
not sure if anyone posted this yet, 32GB for verizon does exist:
Maybe it will be released on my bday the 30th.
