Been using this phone since launch. Looked at upgrades but honestly can't find a good reason to move on. The glass sandwich case is still one of the most stylish on the market and still attracts admiration. As smooth as ever and being a basic level of Android, no skins or propriatory software, has been the fist in by group of friends to receive Android updates, often by months. Often had updates others never get. Although at this point it has probably reached the limit of operatiing software updates as the latest build of Android supports features such as finger print recognition which this phone doesn't have. Battery is the original one and still lasts over 24 hours. I've seen lots of complaints about battery life but this isn't my experiece and wonder if those phones have had unreliable third party batteries fitted. Although the phone isn't built to allow removal of battery it can be done, check YouTube. App upgrades have never been a problem. Still pleased with it after all this time.
I use the Nexus 4 for 1 year and i have a good expirience with the clean Android system with no bloatware with Lollipop 5.1.1 are perfect , i love it ! And the design and glass material and size are perfect for me , but the bad things on this device for me are the front câmera , they are só slow wit mid/low-light , and with HDR mode on , and the battery life...i can't complete 6hrs on moderate usage with this device...

Nexus 4 is such a mediocre phone overall, but its main flaw is battery. It dies in the afternoon after a night's full charge. And sometimes it drains so fast that charging is not enough, it dies suddenly, even when connected to a charger, and turning it back on is even more painful as it needs to restart all the apps due to the incorrect shutting down (the whole process takes roughly 30 min, with an average number of apps). I would not recommend this device to anybody that wants to have a healthy and peaceful relationship with their phone.
I've been using this phone for 3 years and still works like a charm! No lags Fired up with Nova Launcher and it's very fluid in terms of animation, still supports updates in apps, Can still play High Graphics games and more.... I do not intend to replace this phone for now. I'm looking for a tablet right now to watch movies.
I have been using this phone for 3 years.it is an amazing and wonderful phone.it's price also less than other mobiles.I have dropped my phone many times.and I did 3 times repair as well.now my phone storage almost full.Itz unfair that there is card for this.No software issues.Any high graphical still supported.It still get latest updates instantly.I have never felt that this was a bad phone with my user experience.
AJIT, 22 Feb 2016Bought in May 2013 for 299 USD, still doing good. It is fast, and very responsive. Display is ... moresame like you except I didn't replace the battery, I will replace the phone itself for Nexus 5X but after ordering it don't know if its worth it or shall I just replace the battery of the the Nexus 4
So my 3 year old nexus 4 battery was behaving badly recently , so I decided to replace it with a Nexus 5X and already made an order, after that, I noticed that battery usage goes like this 20% to Messenger and 20% to facebook !!! While I had my FB account deactivated fro two weeks !! I uninstalled the two apps and I feel the battery is fine, shall I just cancel the order and go to the service center and replace the battery ? I checked with them and found its only costing 90 AED to replace here in Dubai (authorized LG centre) I'm just wondering if the phone will be ok after replacing the battery and all , or shall I just proceed with the Nexus 5X which will be arriving this week ?

Bought in May 2013 for 299 USD, still doing good. It is fast, and very responsive. Display is clear. Call quality is good. Camera is good in bright daylight. Otherwise it is sub par. Had to change the battery once. Otherwise no malfunctions.
I love this phone, it's fast and no lags. It's still alive and kicking. Love the battery life, it's still last for 2 days and half. :) I love all the nexus versions! can't wait to buy nexus 5
Hi, regarding your question about what kind of charger is used for your battery. Usually the charger output current should be about half of the batter capacity. For example, for this LG Nexus 4, the battery is rated at 2100 mAh, so a good charger should be around 1000-1200 mAh (may also be written as 1.2 Amp). This phone comes with a 1200 mAh charger. The voltage output is the same on almost all chargers, 5 volts DC (+/- .5volts). If you use too strong a charger you can damage the battery, causing it to swell and destroy the cells inside it. If you use a lower output charger it will work but take longer to charge the battery, and may not charge it to 100%. I also suggest you download and use a battery maintenance program from Google Play store. There are a number of very good apps out there for controling battery charging. I personally like Battery Doctor by Cheeta Mobile, but there are many other excellent similar apps too.
I hope this helps you.
This might be first world problem, but this phone keeps sliding off when I place it on top of my leather wallet. WTF Phone?!
So far this is the best smartphone ever ...
But I would have a full HD screen )
Got the updated version (with the nipples) sealed in the box off contract on Google Play for $200.
I damaged it twice first it fell out of my kangaroo pocket from jugging in my auto shop face down and second after throughing it onto my bed with my U-lock in the way.
The rim isn't gloss gun metal steel it's plastic but thank fully absorbed the blow, screen didn't crack or scratch and hasn't on both sides never used a case or screen protector only got a nick in the glass display smaller than a gran of sand doesn't cut my pinky finger. Excellent phone done a lot of work to the software, only needs a SD card to become my daily.
