I know someone who bought a Galaxy Nexus recently, and he finally unboxed it today and straight away inserted the SIM and battery and plugged in to charge. Hours later when we tried to boot it for the first time, nothing happened. Removed and reinserted batteries, changed sockets, attached the USB charger to a PC, etc. but we still have no idea if the phone has charged or charging or if it's a completely defective item.
Please help me troubleshoot it.
