This phone costs 349$ for 16gb and 299$ for 8gb version flat.
UNLOCKED...it doesnt come with any carrier. Thats quite less compared to 600$ to 800$ unlocked for iphone 5 and htc one x and galaxy s3.
Why is this better ?
(a)Because it comes close to iphone 5's 326ppi screen density , this phones is 320ppi , thats more than sg3,sg2,ipad2 etc.
(b)os is android 4.2 and be sure this will be the first on the planet to get updates instatly , my old nexus S still gets updates after 2yrs of owning and living in another country despite buying in US.
(c)screen is better than super AMOLED etc and at managing battery and is also higher resolution than sg3 , samsung note , lg 4xhd etc.
(d)camera vastly upgraded from old nexus and some recent smartphones.
(e)quadcore processor , better in performance than samsung s3 , note 1 , htc oneX..despite them other phones being quadcores , also has 2gb ram ...1gb more than others.
(f)lastly , its gorilla glass 2 and rubberised plastic in construction , why does everyone praise iphone 4 for doing the same but complain when google does it ??
sturdy , solid contruction ...not just whole squeky plastic like sg3 , note 1 ,2..
WHERE IT LACKs... non expandable and no 4g.
Well , for most people 16gb is enough, atleast for me it is...as for 4glte , its yet to be implemented properly all across by US etc. not even introduced in rest of world properly, So why not enjoy 3.7g on T-mobile till 4g develops by next year , cause then there will be another 4g + expandable nexus then if you want to buy. I am content with this.
Besides , this is the cheapest , fastest , most powerful phone literally on the planet today(atleast for next 2-3 months). . .beats the sg3,one X, lg hdX etc and note 1 HANDSDOWM (despite note 1 being a hybrid )...so think about it.
Best part ?
those living in non US countries like me can get a quadcore beauty cheap , for example most quadcores in india cost 35,000-40,000 INR , which is very high cost when average 5mpx single core 1ghz, 4.1 inch mobiles cost 17,000inr but this costs 22,000 inr. what do you think most people wil buy with a little effort ???
Does anyone know if it'll have international warranty support or not?
Can someone please confirm how does warranty work on this phone. I mean in India if anything goes wrong, who will be there to assist. Thanks in advance for your response. Cheers
Price in india 23000/- Inr is for 8 gb ebay, 27000k for 16gb. But im not sure about ebay pricing, wil wait till 13 novmbr or until google or lg release a statement regarding price in other countries. 27 k for 16 gb is no pocket friendly. Prices still too high
I don't care what people think about this phone,I taking this monster for sure!
Anonymous, 06 Nov 2012Guys what do u think..if there is xiaomi mi-two based nexus...How much could be the price.??around 320USD
LG Nexus 4 is now up for pre-order on eBay.in at Rs 23,490 for the 8GB model and Rs 27,490 for the 16GB variant
Can you all stop bitching about the price. It's an amazing phone. If you know say apple charges 700 for a phone it's amazing and revolutionary, but the nexus (only outside of google play) charges less than an iphone and all everyone does is bitch. I know and agree its annoying, but just dont get it if you cant afford it. And if you can't afford it what can you afford. It's really not anymore expensive than anything else on the market.....
Anonymous, 06 Nov 2012You can't buy this phone, even if it costs 500$, but you bought 30 million SGS3 at a higher pr... moreMy thoughts exactly. This is worth 500 or even 600. As much or more so than the s3. Sure some lucky americans and Canadians can buy it through google cheaper, but to say oh its too expensive and buy an s3 is stupid. Its a much better phone. It should cost more. ( i love the gs3 too, dont be offended here people)
Guys what do u think..if there is xiaomi mi-two based nexus...How much could be the price.??

I'm glad to have the play store available in my country. Understandably the price would be higher otherwise as the middleman enters into the chain. They would require a percentage of profit otherwise why would they sell it. Hopefully it gets resolved, otherwise having no LTE and no expandable storage is sounding less impressive with the increase in price.
