By looking at specs (quad core+2GB RAM) and price $349 made me interested with nexus 5.
Cheap price, good specs, but unfortunately I got bad experience with LG.
Their battery didn't last for long, even with high capacity and it's hard to find original battery in Indonesia.
Now it costs $550 (equivalent)...
For that price, I better find other option with better camera quality & (of course) 32gb microsd slot.
It's a different story if it were sold $349 throughout the world
When it was released it was WOW OMG, but by the time they beat the shortages, there are going to be so many new better phones=(
After 3 months of still now show in the market, time to move on to another device. Regardless of who is at fault here, this is such a messy way of doing business from two imcompetent giants.
Thanks for LG for their production delay. If it was avaliable October 2012, I could buy it. But now, Xperia Z is the king. Who cares nexus4 or iphone5..
I am greatly disappointed at LG. Google tried to improve their position with N4. And 3 months after release, I can't get it anywhere.
i only liked lg when nexus 4 was announced by it
but its a waste brand
it must be built by samsung
lg is waste brand...fit for nothing
keep on postponding the launch of nexus 4 in india
if u cant give dont show add,dont comitte
LG & Google messed the one opportunity they had. I (among many other buyers) was very keen to purchase this device, but since after 3 months it's still not avalable, i am not going to waste my time mid feb in 2013 with the nexus 4, espically considering the next nexus is coming out in 2 months from now, like it's too late the damage is done, instead i have decided to get the note 2, and when the note 3 comes out i am going to get that as well, either way, thanks to pathetic public relations and marketing skills they only sold over 600,000 units in all, thats the equivilent to what apple make in a month, (i am not an apple fanboy, far from it) but its the sad and pathetic truth, not forgetting how google cheated everyone about the nexus 4 having usb otg, then removing it from the manual and keeping quiet. Anyway, nice try google, fail yet again, the nexus 10 is amazing but such a fail, no stock, no stock from all three manufacturers, asus, lg and samsung, Google is in the fault here and thanks to them i will be forced to get the note 2 :)
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2013Who would buy this trash phone? Only 16 gb max storage? And always on beta lag OS?It's not a trash, Pure Android experience, & the latest Google updates (NOT BETA) and less lags & bugs. you're mistaken bro.
I would believe more that LG is not producing enough phone.
if not, nexus 5 may not be produced by motorrola owned by google.
LG = low grade.
if this a apple product everyone will go WOW!!! no stock its must be the greatest product ever on earth..great!!! i will wait till the end of world to get one
i am glad i got my Nexus amazing phone and i dont know what ppl say about the Battery it holds up nicely
I'm sure Google and LG lost sales cause they couldn't capitalize on demand, now that 1080p phones are coming up, it'll be even harder, either I waited for a long time and Nexus 4 is the best phone I've ever had the pleasure of owning, I'll be sticking with it for a long time

TheyLostBuyers, 22 Jan 2013Not sure here, but i think they lost buyers. The reason i'm thinking it is this way is because... moreThey definitely lost buyers. I would have bought one but gave up waiting, but at least I'm happy with the HTC One X I got instead.
They tried to do the apple thing, but they forgot their market is not the rich. It's the cheapos. They'll move on.
i really wanted the NEXUS 4 and i waited and waited for it to be in stock for over a month hating every minuet longer i had to use this useless ipnone 4s piece horse poop. but could not wait any longer so i found a galaxy note 16Gb for less that the 16gig nexus 4 and took it's 5.3" screen, rooted it an enjoy 4.1.2 at a slower speed but it houses a 32Gb micro-SD so i loose 2 cores and 1gig ram but gain .6" screen size and 32gig storage plus i'm not really a fan of LG phones. and as for the next NEXUS lets hope it comes with 64gigs built in if there to be no mem card slot.
