Verizon Wireless on Monday confirmed that it is working on a software fix that will address what it refers to as a “signal strength issue” present in its just-released Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone. “The signal strength issue is currently being investigated,” a Verizon Wireless support representative posted on a company Twitter account. “We don’t have an ETA, but a software update is being developed.” We’ve noticed that the signal strength displayed by our Galaxy Nexus review unit is sometimes weaker than other Verizon smartphones in the same room, but we haven’t experienced any above-average call drops, slowed data throughput or anything else that might result from poor reception. Verizon launched the highly anticipated Galaxy Nexus last week, and we called the international version of the handset the best Android phone to date when we reviewed it last month.
