Review: LG Nexus 4 from Google
11 April 2013
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: 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
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: Google's Nexus catalog has just grown by two members in the past couple of weeks, with the introduction of the Nexus 4 smartphone, and the Nexus 10 tablet. Today we're checking out the latest and greatest flagship smartphone from Google.
Conclusion: Specs-wise, the Google Nexus 4 is an impressive smartphone. Sure, it may not be the best in any particular category, but it's a very well-balanced package with an incredibly powerful processor and a gorgeous IPS screen. When it comes to its design, we do appreciate some of the delicacies of its premium exterior elements, but it doesn’t really come off as something totally invigorating to cause us to drool over it.
Pros: Phenomenal price point, New features with Android 4.2 JB
Cons: No memory expansion, No LTE version, Underwhelming still and video capturing quality
It's not perfect, but Google's new Nexus 4 smartphone is one of the best on the market

Summary: There's no doubt about it, the Nexus 4 represents outstanding value for money. The lack of 4G and no expandable memory will push some potential users elsewhere, but the combination of an excellent screen, an attractive and well constructed design and superb software make the Nexus 4 one of the best smartphones on the market. The only problem will be getting your hands on one.
Pros: Fantastic price and value, Good design and ergonomics, Excellent, continually evolving software
Cons: No 4G or expandable memory, Glass back scratches easily, Battery life could be better
Conclusion: The LG Nexus 4 will satisfy movie and web fans with its sharp, spacious 4.7-inch screen, while the quad-core processor handles the latest games with ease. Our only big bugbear is the stingy, non-expandable storage.
Pros: Highly crisp HD display; Quad core power; Slick, simple design; Photo Sphere is super cool
Hard to pass up: LG’s $399 Google Nexus 4 reviewed
19 December 2012
Summary: With a price tag that puts it just slightly out of budget territory and perfectly priced in the mid-range, you’d be hard pressed to not consider the Nexus 4, as the combination of Google’s latest operating system and LG’s engineering smarts helps to round out the new Nexus phone and make it one of the better devices out there.
Pros: Solid and well built, Great screen, The most up-to-date Android experience, Insanely competitive price
Cons: No 4G, Mediocre battery life, Camera autofocus isn't fantastic, A little slippery
