Maybe now it makes a little more sense why the Galaxy Nexus took so much longer to arrive in the U.S. then originally anticipated: a spate of minor yet annoying bugs has frustrated some early owners of the devices and made it plausible that Samsung, Google (NSDQ: GOOG), and Verizon spent a fair amount of time trying to squash larger ones.
The device has only been available in the U.S. for a week, but it has been available in the U.K. for nearly a month. Following that launch, some issues cropped up with the volume controls on the phone, and now two other bugs have surfaced that Samsung and Google have to address.
Some users are reporting signal problems, which Verizon has acknowledged, according to Droid Life. The good news is that the carrier seemed to think it could fix those issues with a software update, as opposed to having to deal with some sort of hardware issue.
And others are reporting problems with an unresponsive display while playing certain types of games. This also seems like a bug (posters in the Rootzwiki forums show how it can be fixed simply by locking and unlocking the screen) but it’s clearly something that will cause frustration.
