We've received several tips about a possible bug on the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus (check our review) which results in the phone schizophrenically switching between volume modes, or randomly muting itself. During the course of our review we didn't notice this at all, but today we received a tip suggesting it could have something to do with the EDGE (2G) radio. As such, we set our Nexus to 2G-only mode, and sure enough, when switching between EDGE and 3G or EDGE and Wifi, we found that our unit fell victim to the glitch, too.
Right now we're guessing that something about the way the EDGE radio works is interfering with the volume rocker, causing the down volume key to be triggered repeatedly. There've also been suggestions that only 900MHz EDGE networks are affected, but we haven't been able to confirm this.
In any case, we've got the whole thing captured on video. Hit the jump if you want to take a look.
Thanks to Andrew and everyone who sent this in!

Google Pixel 4a specs: Upgrades in performance, display and battery
Google never goes overboard with Pixel specs, and that's particularly true with the "a" series. The Pixel 4a, like its predecessor, is about giving you a great all-around experience for the money by being very selective about which specs and features are included.
Google confirms Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 are coming, but with few details
Google has confirmed it will have two more Pixels to launch in 2020, and they'll both have 5G. The Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 will come later to complement the standard Pixel 4a, and while we have a decent idea of what they'll be like through leaks, Google isn't spilling details.
Google Pixel 4a review: The best camera under $400 is a perfect 2020 phone
It turns out Google's "less is more" approach really fits well within the constraints of a less-expensive phone, and its strengths in software and camera processing stand out against less-refined competition. The Pixel 4a picks up right where the 3a left off, with better specs, the same great camera, and a $50 lower price.
These cases provide all the protection your Galaxy A11 will need
If you want to go with Samsung but don't want to get a flagship like the S20, why not go with a more budget-friendly option like the Galaxy A11? This phone gives you the look of a flagship smartphone at just a portion of the cost. But even though you're saving some dough, you'll want to make sure that your investment is protected, so why not get a new case?
