Google Nexus 4
4 October 2014
Summary: Sure, it doesn’t have 4G, and it’s about as sexy as a doorstop, but there’s so much raw power under the hood of the Google Nexus 4, and its Android 4.2 software is sublime. For the money - on the Google Play store, at least - it’s the sale of the century for iOS haters.
Conclusion: The Nexus 4 is in the enviable position of being the best deal in the smartphone space. It will appeal to different prospective customers for a variety of reasons. The traveller will appreciate its factory unlocked, pentaband radio; the hacker will love its unlockable bootloader and extensive developer support; the deal hound will enjoy its low price; and the enthusiast will clamour for the latest Android software, high-end specs and gorgeous screen.
Excerpt: Based on the LG Optimus G in terms of hardware, The Nexus 4 boasts a brilliant IPS+ LCD screen spannign 4.7-inches and offering 1280 x 768 pixels of resolution, with a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon Pro processor and 2GB of RAM. This makes it almost as fast (And sometimes faster) than the iPhone 5 offering... Which is almost 3 times more expensive. Impressive.
Pros: Top notch specs, for unbeatable price. Being Nexus branded guarantees getting timely Android updates, Attractive glass design
Cons: Really hard to find cons here. We can say lack of microSD slot, but that's just nit picking
Summary: As already stated in the beginning, the LG Google Nexus 4 is a really interesting device, one of the best around, which only lacks support for LTE network to be 100% complete. Specifications are cutting-edge, from quad-core processor and the Most High for Android updates continue with the display of the highest quality.
Pros: Advanced photo features, GPS, Wi-Fi and DLNA, Front camera, NFC module, Quad-core processor, Internal Memory.
Cons: Battery cannot be expanded, Memory not expandable, Cover cannot be opened.
Excerpt: As you might have heard by now , I’ve been using the LG Nexus 4 for a little while, and I’m absolutely loving it. And to help in my transition to different phone, the folks at Mobile Fun were nice enough to send me a new car mount to review, so I wouldn’t have to go without. (They’ve also got tons of other Nexus 4 docks , too.
Summary: If you have been waiting for it, just go and pick it up. Itï¿½s awesome. The display is good, performance is excellent, you will be the first to receive all the Android updates and the phone simply looks gorgeous. On the downside, there is no expandable storage, the camera is lacklustre in low lighting and the earpiece has audio leaking. If you are searching for a smartphone between Rs. 25,000 and Rs.
Pros: Good display, Sexy design, Great performer, Smooth multitasking, Upgradable to the latest Android version as it is released
Cons: Lacklustre camera, No expandable storage, Rear panel is prone to scratches
Summary: Lucky number four. Long awaited, incessantly discussed and sold out even faster - Google's latest Nexus device raises the battle cry against other high-performance smartphones with an unrivaled price of 349 Euros (~$450) for the 16 GB version and 299 Euros (~$390) for the 8 GB version.
Pros: High-quality workmanship, Good price-performance ratio, Always the latest Android version, Very good performance (quad-core), Temperature development, Attractive design, Camera featuring Photo Sphere, Near-field communication, HDMI port via adapter possible, The SoC is powerful and works well with the generously sized RAM. No performance bottlenecks could be found.
Cons: Problems with reconnecting to Wi-Fi networks, Non-removable battery, No micro-SD slot, No LTE planned for Germany, 12 month warranty only, Better battery runtime to compensate for the drawback of the non-removable lithium ion battery wouldn't hurt. A microSD slot would also fit perfectly.
Summary: There really isn’t too much to say about the LG Nexus 4, when it comes down to it. The hardware is much more solid than the Galaxy Nexus and seems to be of higher quality, but the fragile glass back cover detracts from the overall durability of the device. The included software is a slight update on the tried and true Android 4.2, but doesn’t change very much and just adds a few small features.

1 April 2013
Summary: While the LG Nexus 4 wins on internal performance and user experience, anyone shopping for an unlocked phone should consider a comparable LTE handset first.
Pros: The competitively priced LG Nexus 4 delivers a pure and polished experience with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, it's powered by a snappy quad-core processor, and it's packed with new photo-editing and camera features.
Cons: The Nexus 4's construction is solid but uninspiring, its call volume is too low, and it lacks 4G LTE.
Excerpt: Almost like clockwork, every year around this time, Google ( GOOG ) introduces a new version of the company’s flagship smartphone, the Nexus.
