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.
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.
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
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.
Excerpt: It’s finally here. After months of speculation, countless pre-order listings and rumours circulating the Internet, the Nexus 4 16GB is available in India in black as well as white. We here at Digit have had the smartphone with us since January. We received it one dark night.
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 wit...
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.
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 ).
Conclusion: With the Nexus 4 conclusion I really have to finish the way I started, namely by noting that this is now the fullest realization of Google's original strategy laid out for Nexus at its inception.
Conclusion: God help us, if there’s one area where expectations may never be met, it’s in the ongoing-but-never-here revolution of television. Every year we hear about the next big thing in television, and every year no one ends up throwing their TVs out the window to make room for something new.
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.
