oh man that is going to be the best thing of all time!!! lol
 
Pretty decent phone, but no LTE? That's a shame.

I wonder if the battery life isn't going to be a problem if I use it as an mp3 player too. What do you think ?
 
LTE is only a problem for certain providers in the USA.
As a world phone it is just fine, it has HSPA (i think up to 42Mb?) and that is fast enough for the coming year or 2 in the rest of the world anyway. (We don't have any LTE yet here, but we do have 7 or 14Mb HSPA)

The bigger problem is way more the very low flash memory 8 and even 16GB is just way to low for me, i really want a Nexus 4 but then in a 64GB variant, that one i would buy immediately (no problem if it cost then +/-600 euro). But with no MicroSD there is just not enough internal flash
 
the author wants the ability to switch user account on a phone? Seriously?

A phone is a personal thing. Why do you need that feature?
 
Quick Q- We've got a Galaxy Nexus - do we need to upgrade ASAP or should we wait for the next big thing?
 
+Hugo Ma on tablets yeah.. a phone should be with you all the time... the kids will survive without the phone..

I hope it could works in wcdma and CDMA 
 
Yes wireless charging support
 
I think I will name my son... Nexus!
 
just take my money google
 
That is one disappointing review. Would you stop moaning about the MicroSD slot please? It's not 2010 anymore, the world has moved on. 
 
I'm currently rocking a GS3 and love it but am considering dumping it for the Nexus 4. Any thoughts??
 
I think the Nexus is way better. Dump the S3! You will get twice the RAM, a newer version of Android, and better update support in future. My sister in law's old Nexus S is still getting updates - before the new S3!

+small wall not by a long shot, i currently have in my SGS2 16GB internal with a 64GB microsd. if i combine the usage together i am around 45GB of usage. And that is without video's if i would go on a vacation (But currently that is fine because the video's would go on my Infinity)

Everything gets bigger, music collections, games, video's you name it.
And not everything can go to the cloud (like games) and the cloud is not always there. So i just want to have it all locally and use the cloud as backup or sync. If i am in plane, if i am not in my home country, or even on 3G on my home country (i only have 200MB per month i refuse to pay more monthly). So i just want everything to be locally that's just way cheaper for me 
For example buying now a phone for 400 euro's that has 16GB or spending 200! euro's more for having 64GB will result in a way higher data usage that will results in cost way more then that initial 200 euro extra.
Not to mention the much easier usage..

We all now know that Google hates MicroSD. ok i can live with that, But if i can't have a MicroSD (would be way more cheaper!) then give us choices, release the Nexus 4 phone in a 8,16,32 and 64GB variants and let us choose, just like the fruit company does..

Google starts to look a lot more and more on Apple in these stuff but it doesn't go the full way..
 
Quad core and 2gb of RAM is nice but I'm perfectly happy with my 32gb LTE equipped GNex and my Nexus 7. Plus I just don't trust LG. Been burned too many times by them in the past.

I like it.  It's a shame the phone seems to be 'on the cusp' of the LTE rollout.  The missing feature will be irrelevant in 12 months when everyone is supporting it.  Perhaps Google understand that and have priced accordingly?  Even in 12 months rollout of LTE will be further along but hardly everywhere in the UK.  Even 3G suffers in some parts of the UK so 4G might take even longer. 
 
not a smart phone .. it is smartest phone .. <m>

Apple has lost its place to google and samsung as pioneer of latest mobile technology, it is now playing catchup. The Iphone 5 empasises this fact without any prevarication, aside from its weight, what advancement has apple contributed through the flagship phone? on the other hand, google has brought many SCIFI fictions to reality through its more advanced amd intelligient OS, its partners like Samsung and HTC are breaking new ground every day, taking advantage of the horse power of the Android eco system. For instance, with samsung phones you can shoot videos and take photos with your friends at a party and all of you will automatically get each others copy seamlessly, don't think about it, it just works.Android OS boasts support for great technologies like panoram (which apple copied in ios 6)android beam, Amoled display, S. beam, NFC,sense, personal retrieval, google Navigation etc. what has Apple got? retina display? rubbish! that cannot be compared to amoled dispaly let alone super Amoled HD. Besides, the customization a user get from android gives him the feeling that he truly owns his device, apple prevents you from getting content from any other provider but apple, rediculous! its dead icons just make me laugh even Microsoft has ditched that in their PC based OS, windows, when will Apple do the same? i am laughing at those jokers that call themselves geniuses.

Yes non-removable battery is a bummer. :(
 
+Ian Meredith that's what I'm saying though.. if you care enough about privacy, you shouldn't be handing people your phone...  I'm not saying people don't do it.. I'm saying people shouldn't do it...

for all the purpose you mentioned above.. people should be using tablets..

just my opinion anyway.. feel free to disagree.. 
 
+Ian Meredith +Ivan Yudhi  actually, I find several good uses for multiple accounts on one device. Such as my account and my wife's account; I don't mind her logging into my device if she had to, for instance. Also, I have two gmail accounts that I use for totally different purposes; I can use both accounts on my one device as well.

Handing my device to a total stranger so they can log in to my device is just silly, in my opinion and I don't know who would even do that (I'm just saying).

I just thought I should chime in, that's all.
 
+Dino Rodriguez I agree with you completely... for Nexus 7 it completely makes sense... if I have multiple account I can give my device around to my friends logging in as a guest user..

a phone? I'll lend it to my friend if he/she wants to make a call, or check the features out or whatever.. but that's about it and will be under my watch 100% of the time.. 
 
Anyone notice the back plate resembles Nexus One wallpaper?
 
I was going to jump on this fast but no LTE killed it for me. I wont change providers for it especially for slower download speeds. Looks like I'm going to hold out hope that Motorola is making their own Nexus for Verizon (I know the chances are slim to none).
 
Relax, Josh, just trade the VZW Galaxy Nexus I'm sure you're sporting in for an iPhone. 
 
It isn't a good phone. CPU is good, but everything else is crap spec wise. Of course 4.2 is good.

Definitely planning on picking it up. The price is unbelievable, and I've been really happy with T-Mobile's HSPA+.
 
when you dont need LTE this is like the perfect phone
HSPA+ is about the same speed as LTE at the moment so that aint really bad at all either
 
Why do people compare this to iphone? i phone is jagged, painful to hold, slippery, unergonomic, and has that big ugly button in the front to remind you that you're using an outdated piece of technology. This looks like it would fit in your hand beautifully, and has a sleek black front uninterrupted by ugly buttons.

Not worth the money in the uk for LTE so its ideal for me.
 
hai nice phone cool new generation and good tegnolege phone more develop nice
 
1st off the s3 doesn't use the 2gig of ram that it has. I'm not a big fan of sealed batteries and no SD slot. I know Google is trying to get us to embrace the cloud but if you don't have unlimited data that can get expensive. I'm big into custom roms so 2 SD points really helps. So what if nexus gets their updates faster, i root and do my own. BTW the new keyboard and sphere camera are both awesome I'm already running them
 
When you look at the market there what work for the crowd and what works for techs.  Nexus line is everything for customer that need to get something that works and will last.

If the want to do custom roms (which I would), one should be looking to any number of option cheaper or more powerful.
 
since you can't remove the back, where's the sim slot?
 
We av crops to sell if u wil parner with us such as cocoa in nigeria 
 
Real world use of verizon's lte is overrated and no better than hspa+.  Seriously considering ditching verizon for this phone off contract.
 
Why is the LG Optimus G $100 less? Are we experiencing a Nexus fanboy tax?
 
Way to compare unlocked and on-contract prices, Ryan.
 
Beautiful phone but those early buyers will feel the sting in a month or two when the 32gb or even a 64gb (fingers crossed) comes out. These days, 16gb is not enough for a phone especially when it comes without a micro sd. 
 
That is a cool phone and i whatbit so much andbi would like to have it so much and why can i not have a phone when your at 30 :-)and i like phones so that why i kike phones
 
I have had a nexus phone for the last two years and love it . I haven't had any problems with it. With this new one it be a good upgrade 
 
Close enough? No Micro SD, no LTE, same paltry 16GB, fixed battery, oh but it has NFC (which I have never used on my Galaxy Nexus)... great! Think I'll be upgrading to a 64GB iPhone 5 next month thanks.
 
+Ryan Rapp the Optimus g is listed subsidized. If you look at the Optimus G off contract price you will find that the Optimus G costs more... 
 
I'm sticking with my Galaxy Nexus. I get delayed updates because of Verizon but I do get LTE.
 
No expansion slot, no replaceable battery?
Is this a joke?
Because I didn't get it!
 
+Kelly Chasney You should root 'n' ROM your phone so you can get updates the day they come out. My personal favorite is called Jelly Belly (http://goo.gl/Xhyw1) which prides itself on being as close to stock as possible, unlike other ROM's like AOKP and Cyanogenmod, which add a ton of features and pack it with "stuff". Jelly Belly will get you the stock Android experience, plus some performance tweaks, with frequent updates. The day an AOSP update is posted by Google, Jelly Belly will get it (1 day delay, at the latest). Fantastic user experience.
 
+Leon J Mac You're getting rid of the Galaxy Nexus which is arguably still a great phone for the iPhone 5 because you don't like the Nexus 4? Won't you miss widgets, best notification window, Google Maps, and Google Now at the least? Good luck. I couldn't imagine switching to iPhone over my GNexus. But that's me.

Wait! The Nexus 4 is meant to be a cheaper stripped down phone in the lineup below the G Nex in few ways. The retail cost is vastly cheaper! It's not the Nexus2 or anything of that nature this is to get more users without the higher price tag.  And if you are jumping the Google ship for an iPhone, firstly giving APPLE that ASSHOLE OF A COMPANY one more dime doesn't solve a thing other than get you a smaller screen and lousy maps and second there are far better phones on the horizon. Note II is one.
 
S3 has 2 gb ram in us variant. Also I believe the s3 had many features that this phone lacks however the build quality is very nice on the nexus 4 and as far as storage goes micro SD is a big deal for a lot of people. + robin c. M. Staple

I'm sure the new crap will be worse than older crap, but faster.

LOL
 
Based on Google's relationship with Sprint (Nexus S 4G, Galaxy Nexus) and Verizon (Galaxy Nexus) I am hopeful that additional variants will show up within the next 6 months. I will be patient and enjoy my Nexus 7, Xoom, Google TV and Nexus S 4G.
 
Can't wait for that phone reading every review I have nexus s just now .it doesn't matter to me who says what I trust Google its Sony or lg.
 
yeah!!! it would've been perfect if it had a micro sd card slot
 
yeah !!! it would've been perfect if it had a mirco-sd card slot
 
I found SD card capable is not necessary an advantage on the android smartphone.  I do not know how many software out there that defaults to install in the internal memory, then you have to go to every one of them and check whether they can be move to SD card. With builtin memory you do not need to do this kind of management.  Builtin memory is getting bigger 16GB, 32GB is enough.
 
The camera software with quick access to settings is really amazing; I want on all my Samsung phones!
But in counterpart, the lack of LTE and the glass back are disappointing. 
The only manner I could deal with a glass back if this one were used as solar panel for charging.
 
LTE = shitty battery
no thank you!
 
I have a galaxy nexus on Verizon.... why would I downgrade from 4g lte to a 3g phone?.... makes no sense.
 
So beautiful! LG Nexus 4 fighting!
 
"Oh, that battery life too short for you?  Let me fix that...there you go"

"Wait, now my data sucks, it's too slow!"

"In order to improve battery life, we removed 4G and gave you a phone circa 2009, but it still looks pretty"

Great review guys, the display and design appear to be top features here. As for performance this sounds like a software issue, not a hardware issue, and I'm sure Google will have picked up on this from reviews such as yours. I'd expect a software update would sort this out.
