Kidigi car mount cradle for LG Nexus 4 review
28 July 2013
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: 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.
Summary: To sum it all up, we’re very much satisfied with the Nexus 4. However, we had to deal with the stripped to the bone Android OS, poor speaker placement, and the worries of having a glass-clad smartphone. But being a Google flagship it certainly has delivered what is expected of it – blazingly fast performance, full on Google support, good looks and great build quality.
Google Nexus 4 – the new Android flagship doesn’t fail to impress
28 January 2013
Conclusion: The Nexus 4 was launched just in time for the start of Holiday season last year, and while LG is experiencing a shortage of supply due to the very high demand, you can pre-order the phone online right now. And here’s the kicker – an unlocked unit without a contract will cost you only $299 or $349 for the 8 GB or 16 GB model, respectively.
Excerpt: Almost like clockwork, every year around this time, Google ( GOOG ) introduces a new version of the company’s flagship smartphone, the Nexus. This year, we have the Nexus 4 manufactured by LG ( 066570 ) instead of HTC ( 2498 ) or Samsung ( 005930 ). In addition to a new Nexus, the phone is usually accompanied by a new version of the Android OS, and with the Nexus 4 Google has introduced Android 4.2.
Excerpt: Sometimes it feels like the world is becoming awfully small. You can fly direct to Tokyo from Toronto, WiFi on the plane and, once on the ground, head to a local store to purchase a prepaid SIM.
Conclusion: Google seems to have struck gold. Next generation quad-core power, cheaper than a last generation flagship. It defies sense. The design is different to anything we’ve seen from LG or Google before, it’s characteristic and well constructed. The screen matches most current flagships and betters some while the 8-megapixel camera delivers perfectly respectable performance, taken to the next level by additional shooting modes and the best photo editor around.
Pros: Fantastic value, Great screen, Android 4.2
Cons: No expandable storage, Slight hollow feel, Speaker easily muffled, Glass front and back can crack
