+Rob Farnham not any more so than any other multi-core ARM processor.
The big benefit of the Octa versus the 600 is the GPU in the Octa. The PowerVR is better than the Adreno. That's why the Octa benchmarks better than the 600. But the PowerVR is a lot better than the Adreno, and the Octa only benchmarks a little better than the 600.
speaking of chargers, Blackberry has the best premium branded charger in regards to rapid charge with 1.8 Amps compared to Samsung with 1.0 Amps or typical offshore brands Point being is sometimes spending more is better :)
Would be interesting to see how Google prices the charging orb in other parts of the world, particularly in emerging markets. Considering that there are many cheaper alternatives available. #AndroidAuthority
#androidauthority I wish th nexus 4 had better cases, ones that actually looked good.....maybe the official bumper with a clear back and a raised lip?....someone make this and ill buy it for and entire dollar!
Guys and gals please pick me my nexus one(yeah that nexus one!) is falling apart on me really bad. my power button only works with this app called "fix my power button" and when I run out of battery the only way to turn it on is to take the battery out and do this little trick thingy. my screen is starting to malfunction, its constantly crashing and I really need it for my job because I use the maps for transporting vets from the V.A hospital here in long beach to their homes and appointments. well anyways guys great show and I hope I win. #AndroidAuthority
#AndroidAuthority Please Choose me for the Charging Orb man, I hate entering the Micro USB pin in the phone's ass.... Also, I am using the bumper on my N4 so this would be better than a dock without taking off the bumper. Choose me please, its more than 100$ in my country through various dealers as it is not available in Play store in my country. Thank you for the giveaway...Keep up with the good work..
#AndroidAuthority Good contest please make more rather than destroying phones :) 100% more people will join at the prospect of winning something especially if its international contest. Thank you ! Keep the good reviews up
#androidauthority here's my entry. I love my n4 because it's pure android. Gets updates as soon as their ready and has some awesome Dev support. Been reading your guys stuff for a while now. Keep up the great work and awesome giveaways!
#androidauthority love my nexus 4 because it offers me the choices i don't have with non-nexii... sure you 'could' on others, but it's not easy, and the option isn't implied the nexus is the dream of truly 'open'
#androidauthority I have owned every nexus device that came out so far. I love that its the first handset to receive update And love how easy it is to flash ROMs to. The nexus 4 is the best nexus handset to date !!
#androidauthority I love the Nexus 4 due to the fact its the real vanilla android. No skins that make it slow and no crap apps from carriers.And I haven't rooted due to the fact that its the perfect the way it is.
I don't even received my Nexus 4 yet (But it has already been shipped!). But I know I'm going love it! It will be my second Android device, after 2 years with a Motorola Defy and it's lack of Updates and bugged custom ROMs, it will be impossible to not love de Nexus 4 #androidauthority
#androidauthority The Nexus 4 wireless charger seems so cool, just to avoid plugin/unplugging usb cables into my N4 to charge... similar, that is... to emulate, what the OLD Nexus One had with the pogo pins desktop dock.
Hi I love my nexus 4, we all do. It's my newest life partner, it goes with me places others wouldn't dare. It's the thing that keeps me warm at night and never has let me down. It thinks for me when I lose track of time. I can count on my nexus 4 just as much as you can count on your next breath, there is only one flaw my nexus has and like humans we all need energy to keep going. Without the wireless charger. Life on it's eyes is as short as the USB cable and if only I had that wireless charger it could be free of tangle. :) #androidauthority
#androidauthority It would be awesome if i could win this, my dad just bought the nexus 4 today after he ran over his iphone 4 at work. Btw this would be an awesome birthday present since his birthday is April 13.
#androidauthority after using iPhones for 4 years I switched to the Nexus 4 and I couldn't be happier. Android used to be far behind iOS now I feel it's superior. I have one Orb at the office and I'd love to have one at home also.
#androidauthroity I absolutely love my Nexus 4. Does so much, and I love all the amazing functionality, particukarly the notification centre and quick access settings. And I can't wait for the Key Lime Pie because if its anything like the previous updates, it'll have some awesome new features. Can't wait to see what Google comes up with next!
My Nexus 4 is the best thing to happen for me and my new business. It streamlines so much of what I do, is like having a personal assistant. Google Now is simply amazing and surprises me daily. This changing orb would be the feather in the cap for simplifying my busy on the go life. Thanks in Advance! #androidauthority

#androidauthority I love my nexus for many reasons. First off, it's stock android without any carrier or manufacturer bloatware. Matias Duarte has been putting in work to the stock android UI, which became evident in ice cream sandwich. Now, I feel that the stock UI is more beautiful than any other skin. Most importantly, updates come first. The phone has impressive specs to compliment the lightweight, unbloated OS. Quad core with 2 gigs of RAM? Sounds like a computer's specs... The price is amazing and pushes towards freedom for the consumer. $200 and be held down by a 2 year contract? How about I pay $300 and have my freedom? The phone also has NFC to future-proof it a bit. Lastly, its a beautiful phone outside. Sure, the glass is fragile for some, but it does look amazing. Google hit the nail on the head and built a great product with LG. Supplies were limited, but that doesn't change the fact that its an amazing phone.
#androidauthority the nexus 4 is awesome with its pure android and jelly bean. Flows smoothly and the outlook is very nice. The price for this was not very costly. I have the 16gb nexus 4. Its awesome taking orb pictures.
#androidauthority wow Nexus 4 is an amazing phone. Coz along with its Hardware + Software (stock Android) beast, the Price is the most affordable one !! I love its sleek DESIGN, DISPLAY clarity, PROCESSOR speed(smoothly fast!!!),wireless charging (if i get one ! ),not to forget....price is the most comfortable one,.....and many more.Wth every new day, I find myself in love with nXs4 !
#androidsuthority. After my nexus s was no longer receiving updated android os, I decided it was time for a new phone, the nexus 4. The speed is awesome, the price is reasonable and the screen I'd stellar and works well outside in broad daylight.
#androidauthority Ordered my Nexus 4 last night to replace my One X. I think the best feature I'll enjoy will be the faster quad core processor and the next version of Android delivered to me without any bloatware, and on the day it's released, too!
#androidauthority I love my Nexus 4, it's so great that the software will be updated as soon the latest version arrives. And I have always wanted to try this new orb, it will be the perfect accessory to this truly smart phone. Go Team NEXUS!
#androidauthority I think the orb is completely useless when you already have the wall charger but Wtf, is just as great as my Nexus 4 :D so I would really love get an orb (: and if you can give me the headphones too, well, that'd be even greatest :B
#androidauthority I love my Nexus 4 for the purest Android experience, the guaranteed updates, support for Google, that Google Now experience, and the secret LTE radios (not a secret :s) that'll let me run under T-Mobile's HSPA+42 network and their LTE network when it's available in my area. :D oh! And the .flac support works great with my Klipsch Image X10.
My Nexus 4 rocks my world! With a camera that let's you take photos anywhere around you (literally) and hardware that let's you do anything having that extra charging base makes it completely rounded as the battery (as always) may be the one drawback on this incredible phone.
Hello, #androidauthority. I love the hell out of the nexus 4 because for the time being I feel exclusive as the only person I know with one. I'm actually 'saving money' on top of the phone 'being paid for' by switching from a contract to pay as you go. Oh who am I kidding. I just like when you turn the phone off it shuts off like an old television.
I love my nexus 4 because it is fast and easy to use thanks to project butter. Its simple and clean unlike touchwiz and htc sense with all there pointless features. I would really like a chargeing orb that'd make my nexus 4 even better haha. Thanks #androidauthority
#andoidauthority I really love my nexus 4. I went from a Motorola q to a dell streak and finally got fed up with outdated software. I now have an phone without bloatware and the guarantee of ota updates. The only drawback was the taxes shipping it north of the border.
My HTC One X hit the ground, shattered glass was all around. In the mail - my Nexus 4, could a man want for more? Yes, of course, the Nexus Orb, I dream of charging without a cord! I really hope I am in luck, even if my rhyming suck(s)!
I love my Nexus 4 for being pure stock Android the way Google intended, I love the top spec hardware at an amazing price, I love always being first with the latest software, but most of all I love being in that small group where most people have never heard of a Nexus or experienced any of the above, think you're strange, until you find a fellow user & can congratulate each other for "being in the know" #androidauthority
#AndroidAuthority While I love my N4 and my N7 i wonder when one manufacturer will figure out that they can release hardware with stock android and be different from the rest because no one but Google does stock, but their phones are supposed to be for developers, and have only the basics for hardware. I wanna see variety of hardware with stock android.
#androidauthority I love my nexus 4 cause it is from Google. You can get the latest android updates. Not a common phone in India-sense of pride to show off. And it's a true developer phone. Root it- play with it. Explore the innumerable powers n secrets
#androidauthority I live nexus 4 life and addition of orb wireless charger is an icing on the cake, everyday I follow android authority and other blogs wanting for more news on nexus 4 and it's accessory, it's a super phone
When it came time for me to get my first smartphone, I didn't want to get yesterday's news. After doing research online and consulting my more advanced friends, I came to the conclusion the Nexus 4 is the best combination of performance and price. I've been so happy with it, I bought my wife one too! You should too #androidauthority
Not too big size-great performance-brillant display-really very cheap for the things included in this little nice loved thing called nexus 4- and Android what shall I say is just to be loved once you start to work with it
#androidauthority I've been on the fence for a while about whether or not i need another charger for my Nexus 4, and so I stumbled across your review just now of the ORB, and I found it quite helpful. I like a number of things about the Nexus 4, including the speed of processing, the interface, the location of the buttons, but since I switched from an EVO, I miss the kickstand option so I could see the display at an angle while at work. Otherwise, I'm very impressed with its style and customizability.
#androidauthority I love my Nexus 4 because there is 0 lag time on any of the applications. It's got all the features of a premium phone at half the price. And I don't have to have a stupid 2 year contract to use it. I've got the phone and the bumper. Now I just need the charger to complete the ensemble!
Thanks for another kickass podcast/giveaway combo! Hope to get me mitts on the wireless orb so I can charge my super slick, fast and sexy N4 without em weird and horrible wires. Plus it also makes me look cool to my little doggy! :P #androidauthority
Moved from nexus s to nexus 4 and love the same android goodness but with ridonculous specs so everything is instant. Have made many iFans jealous. Wireless orb would be a great bonus! #androidauthority
#androidauthority I love my Nexus 4 for the simple reason that it is a pure genius phone... It's extremely fast, it's capabilities are endless... And, I was previously using an iPod touch 4th gen, so... Yeah
I love my nexus 4 because of the pure android experience without any custom mods, and also because I have somehow managed to keep the back glass intact, atleast so far :P only thing that I need now is the charging orb and I know #androidauthority could help me with that.
