iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Samsung Galaxy Nexus Now On Sale At Clove

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has gone on sale at UK online retailer Clove technology with orders being shipped from tomorrow.

The device costs a rather meaty £515 which is more than we'd pay for a top of the range handset (the iPhone 4S in comparison costs £499).

Clove says that they are aware of the issue relating to the volume changing eratically, and they have been sent a batch that has been through "additional quality control checks", which should have addressed the problem.

As an additional check, Clove are currently testing a number of handsets to make sure that the problem is not affecting any of the Nexus handsets they received.

There are a number of videos on Youtube that show how interference caused by another handset nearby disrupts the volume on the Nexus.

This leads some to posit that it could well be a hardware issue rather than a software related issue, which would make solving it extremely difficult, if not impossible.

That said, the Galaxy Nexus is a rather tasty handset; it is the first phone to come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and an HD ready display.

The screen is a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED one with a 1280x720 pixel resolution. There's a dual core chipset clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a five megapixel camera with a 1.3-megapixel front facing one, a 1750mAh battery, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, Wi-Fi direct, Face Unlock and Android Beam.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
