It seems like a great phone, but I really can't stand Google's choice to not give the possibility of extending the memory. 16 GBs are like nothing, and I know what I'm talking about 'cause I had a Nexus S. I mean, that will cost at most 10$ for them (but I think really, really less) and it's something essential for us, Music listeners and multimedia/power users. I know why they do that, because they want to keep us on using their online services for even the smallest things.... Well, I have'nt got 20 TB of 3G traffic at month on my mobile, and it "seems" like I can't stream the apps, but I have to freaking DOWNLOAD them, so having such a limited memory becomes a really frustrating thing. I would buy it even at more if it only had a microSD slot but with this GREAT limitation I absolutely don't.

(By the way... 8 GB version? O_O Really???? Ahahahahahah! Google, you are really funny! =,D)

Have been using the nexus 4 in India since March 2013 bought it from the America. It is an amazing mobile super smooth, smart, never stalls has a good battery back up on an avg abt 14 hrs with regular internet use on 3g network. On only WiFi lasts lasts abt 20 hrs with calls. The camera is good, far better than that of the galaxy S3, the flash is effective but, low light imaging is grainy. The screen is full HD very clear and the colours are more real than on most Super AMOLED screens
Am very happy and satisfied with the Nexus 4

Got my Nexus 4 about a month ago on a whim as an upgrade from a Galaxy S (I9000) that I bought used a couple of years ago. Overall I'm pretty happy with the phone - the display is excellent, and performance is very smooth. It's definitely lacking in the battery life department, though. Lots of standby time, decent talk time, but doing anything with the screen on (web browsing, email, etc) drains the battery rather quickly. Add in anything CPU-intensive (games mostly) and the remaining charge drops like a rock. My Galaxy S was better in this regard.

Still, not a bad phone, and I like the vanilla Android UI. I wish something like a Google Galaxy Nexus S4 existed - that would be the best of all worlds (can't stand TouchWiz). Or an HTC One with a normal (8-13 MP) camera and normal buttons (or ditch the buttons and just use soft buttons like the Nexus 4). I guess I will hold on to this one for a while, until something better without big drawbacks of its own comes along.

Please, I got my phone Google nexus 4 since last year December. The issue is that some certain games don't work on it like fruit ninja, temple run, the sim, subway surfers, etc. I know people that have the same phone and they are not experiencing this problem.
I am thinking that since I got the phone barely a month after it was released, maybe the manufacturer left out a few settings that were very important. Someone advised me to do a factory reset and update the firmware. Should I do it? Please, I would be expecting your reply. Thanks.
