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: 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.
Excerpt: The Nexus 4 might just be the best-value smartphone ever made. Packing in some unbelievable hardware for its $350 price tag this 4.7-inch speed demon is Google’s officially-endorsed Nexus family of phones this time around made in partnership with LG (the previous two Nexus phones were manufactured by Samsung).
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.
Summary: With a great high-definition screen, power only rivalled by the Galaxy Note 2, a wealth of great software features and a ridiculously low price, the Google Nexus 4 is almost certainly the best Android device around, never mind the best value.
Cons: No expandable memory; battery isn't removable; No 4G.
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.
