Some Galaxy Nexus users having minor multitouch issues

Some Galaxy Nexus users having minor multitouch issues
We don't want to cause any bad flashbacks for Nexus One users who jumped to the Galaxy Nexus, but there have been some minor multitouch issues reported from Galaxy Nexus users, though nothing along the lines that the Nexus One faced. 

The reports from RootzWiki forums have said that there can be inconsistent behavior when using the phone in landscape mode. Some users found that while playing games in landscape mode, the bottom right corner of the screen would eventually become unresponsive. Of course, there is a super easy fix, which is simply to turn off the screen and turn it back on. Still, it's an issue that could definitely cause some annoyance. Although, we'd definitely say that this is not nearly as annoying as how long it takes the phone to reorient from portrait to landscape. 

No word on any possible fix from Google on this one, but as you can see below, the issue has been reproduced on both GSM and LTE models of the Galaxy Nexus.

Yeah, but it's nothing compared to your battery drainage and no sim issues.

Battery drainage is not with all people. and no sim issues has been fixed with a bug (weird that PA didn't told that). They're working on the battery also. P.S. iosmaster that picture of you is really funny. +1 It's really funny.

I'm just gonna say: What happend? How does a Google flagship device come out with so many issues? At this point I very happy with my decision to get the Razr instead of waitting another month and a half for the problem happy Nexus.

Every phone comes out with bugs, but flagship phones like the nexus or iPhone get every issue blown up in the news. I don't like it, but to a point our coverage helps get these bugs fixed by highlighting them to manufacturers. That's why I'm careful to mention these aren't widespread issues.

well with any electronic their will be issues, I do tech support for vzw And can say the razr has a lot of issues but nothing major it's a great device. The Nexus is a solid phone despite this article customers aren't complaining. The iphone has software issues to including freezing not coming on. losing data connection. bottom line no phone is perfect . My choice was between the razr and nexus and I'm glad I picked the nexus great phone NO issues.

Cuz its Samsung...cheap quality and its a vanilla release of a new OS basically...bound to have problems. Thats why us smart people bought the higher quality RAZR and will wait for the update to ICS and it'll be much more stable.

It's because you're a fandroid. Fandroids get special android devices that are perfect, that are specially released for fandroids like you :)

I think because it's such a high profile device, people are picking it apart and reporting every bug and its brother to the tech blogs. Just like the iPhone.

I really like the Android OS and what it offers... but it’s way too buggy for me. This is why I stick with my good-old-faithful iPhone. I don’t have a one second lag between screens and my useless widgets and live wallpapers don’t eat up my battery. With all the said... I am really looking forward to a larger screen iPhone and better customization with the notification pull down. Yeah... I said it... BETTER COSTOMIZATION...lol

2012 will be an interesting year. ICS closes the lag gap, and the iPhone 5 (6?) might finally close the screen size/customization gap.

Yeap, 2012 will be also a fun year for consumers. +1 both of you.

Agreeed, With tweeking of Android continuing to impress me, increase in iPhone display, and Windows Phone kicking some competitive butt.... 2012 will be a great year for consumer choice!

On top of battery issues, on top of data connectivity issues, on top of staying connected to LTE---now add this glitch to the list...This can't be the result of what people have been waiting for--Definately not a "Flagship" model to follow--after not even being out a week yet. Let's all go back to 3G and Android Cupcake and wait for the manufaturers and carriers to catch up-- because this is the root of ALL of these problems..You can't keep releasing dual core, new operating systems, LTE networks in monthly intervals and not expect these types of problems---Remember back--these problems were not around until LTE and dual core ignited---Remember the Thunderbolt!!!
