ofcourse Samsung has the best hardware / software. These guys know software and have the R&D to make the best. HTC or any other phone manufacturers can't hang including apple who uses left over crap parts from Samsung.

I bet in a few months they will be selling Nexus 4 with official LTE capability via addition of a signal amplifier and filter, and with 32 GB, maybe also (but less probably) 64 GB storage option.

You all bashing LG notice that Google picked them to put them on the market a little more?
Also because that way they could sell it on the PLAY STORE for $400ish

It'll come to carriers with a $600 price point, if not $700 with tax. So anyone bashing stop hating and goto your carrier phones. LG has brighter whites, Samsung has better darks, and Sony...they have the media aspect down 100%.

There are the three big compeditors for phone manufacturers just like in Canada we have the big 3 Cellphone companies. All got pro's and con's.

When it comes down to it, GOOGLE made LTE not accessible on the Nexus 4 due to lack of certain extra pieces, but LTE can work so why hate? Appreciate the fact the Nexus 4 even has the LTE chip period.
That's all they're missing past the processor of the Galaxy Nexus for it to be a great product.

No 4G isn't a deal breaker, but if the N4 had 4G and a micro SD slot it really would be the greatest phone for a good while

Nexus products are naturally come with full of troubles. No TouchWiz no HTCSense no OptimusUI no TimeScape makes cutom google os worst than ever.

So how hard it is to put "essential hardware parts"? Not too hard I'd imagine.

My LTE on my Nexus 4 works great :) get your facts straight. LTE band 4 is the only band that works and my carrier supports it.

From my understanding, the phone already has a 3G amplifier and filter, all that matters is that it can recieve any 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 Mhz signals and has a LTE modem, with a software teak, those signals can be sent to the LTE modem. In conclusion, any of those spectrums can be used for either 3G or 4G.

I suggest Google that in the future to worg with HTC. I think this is the only premium phone between al the android phones. They have the best materials, not samsung,not lg, not mottorola, not sony, maybe asus. I d`ont know what to buy : nexus 4 because I hac one nexus or padfone 2. I think I should buy PADFONE 2 because they use better materials and they have he same characteristics(specifications) like nexus + better camera . Soo I hope the next nexus will be from HTC or Asus and you will win the battle with the Iphone in all directions
