Gonna buy a phone next week but confused between Xperia SP & Nexus 4. Design-wis... moreAlso don't forget the Nexus 4 have 2gb of ram while the Sony have 1GB, it can make a difference in multitasking and not getting lags, additionally the Nexus running stock Android even less lags.
As for the screen I don't own recent Sony phones so I don't know, i heard they have problems with viewing angle. The viewing angle for the Nexus 4 is pretty decent, though not as good as AMOLED screen which is best for viewing angles.

Gonna buy a phone next week but confused between Xperia SP & Nexus 4. Design-wis... moreThe Xperia SP might be a good phone if you need microSD. For me Sony have good durability and good signals which is important, generally good audio too (headphone & speakers). It's Krait cpu while dualcore is fast.
The Nexus 4 signal is only average for me and battery life isn't that great, also it can get a hot on extended use and may become uncomfortable if you talk on the phone for a long time. And you will need some protection to not break the phone from drops. But for me I went with the Nexus 4 because in the end of the day software is what important, and you have a lot of software freedom when you have a Nexus. It's also a very premium looking phone, not plasticky. Do not count on Sony and other manufacturers that you will get future Android update, unless you go with Nexus.

In my opinion that is the main disadvantage of that cell phone

Gonna buy a phone next week but confused between Xperia SP & Nexus 4. Design-wise, I like both these phones. Other than that, things that concern me most are listed below. Please help me select one of these phones or suggest any other option in this range, if any.
Xperia SP Pros over nexus:
1. Memory card slot vs no slot. Nexus has approx 12gb free memory but I think I need a bit more than this, so SP is ahead here.
2. Better battery i.e. 51 hrs rating vs 32 hrs.
3. SP is cheaper than nexus in my country-India (Rs. 20,999/- against Rs. 24,999/-)
Nexus pros over SP:
1. Fast OS updates which is important point for me. I think SP won't go further than 4.3
2. Better Chipset/CPU. Though, SP's Chipset/CPU will suffice for me as I'm just a casual gamer.
3. Maybe nexus has a slightly better screen as every tech review is complaining about the viewing angles in the screen of SP.
Again guys, please help me select one of these phones or suggest any other option in this range, if any.

I hope Kitkat version is better camera than previous version 4.3. Please add the color option like galaxy s3, and s4.

saro, 06 Sep 2013I m using this set for next 4 months but when i updated OS to 4.3 ....after that USB connectiv... moreConnect the phone to the PC than go to device manager, look for your nexus 4 than right click and uninstall it, now remove the usb cable and plug it back in and it should install the drivers and hopefully work.
If the above does not work than in your phone go to settings, About phone than keep tapping the Build number until it says you are a developer. now go back into settings and you should see developer options, go in there and check the USB debugging, than try to connect your phone to your computer.
I m using this set for next 4 months but when i updated OS to 4.3 ....after that USB connectivity is not appearing whn i connect it with my laptop or pc.
i hv tried change of setting n all.. but no gain :( ... Pls suggest...
Rahoni, 05 Sep 201324 hours? Don`t think so, man. No more than 5 hours using FB on 3G. 3G consumes more battery than Wifi.
