Google Nexus 4 review: Royal road - read the full textIt's the next-generation Nexus and this time LG has the privilege. And when Google goes "My pleasure!", they most likely mean it.

The nexus 4 memory is just for people that download a little games but they just buy it for these reasons - camera, processor, graphics, looks,display,battery,sometimes memory

The camera app does NOT ALLOW for ISO adjusting. Gosh, I read that for the third time in different reviews.

...it's been over eight hours since the 100% charge on my Nexus 4. Made 10 mins of calls, read/sent a dozen emails and ten minutes online. Battery level is now 70%.
So I'm very happy with my Nexus 4.

Coming from a GSII. Nexus 4 is fantastic! Looks, feel, but will purchase a cover - afraid I'll drop it outside...

HOW I STOPPED MY NEXUS 4 VIBRATING FOR EVERYTHING:
For all mail and sms, I selected 'Silent' tone and set vibrate to 'Never'. I downloaded "Light Flow Lite" free from Android Market and used this to set tones, vibration, even choose colour of notification light!
No more vibrate for my emails!
HOW I INCREASED MY NEXUS 4 BATTERY LIFE:
Force-closed and disabled EVERY Google app I never use (I only use Gmail and Google Play, and I surf with Opera Mobile) and uninstalled apps I don't need - some apps are sending info from your Nexus 4 all day, hence battery drain.
Yesterday (before I disabled/removed apps) I left home 7.30am with battery charge 100%. By 1.00pm it was around 15% with average use.

This morning (after apps were disabled/removed) I unplugged charger 5.30am 100% charge. It is now 10.30am. Battery level with similar useage is 84% HUGE difference!

I had wifi and bluetooth off the whole time and I don't use my phone for music or watching movies.

Yesterday, I was contemplating sending it back.
Not now the battery's gone from W.T.F? to A.O.K!

I have my N4 for 2 weeks now and it's great! I don't understand some negative comments here. The phone's great, advanced CPU and GPU and other hardware make it a bang for the buck. Go, see it for yourself! :)

battery is fine, and memory space is fine when you utilise cloud storage and streaming like spotify or pandora(my FAV) runs like silk and isnt as expensive as an s3, i find also that it is an amzing feel in the hand and layout is pitch perfect. Couldnt be better! finaly an android that is both spec savey and classy feel and design wher as every other android is cheap design and lacks a personality

Every site I go on I see a lot of negative comments about this phone and I really don't understand why? This is CHEAPER than the galaxy nexus and is WAY better in every aspect. I live in UK where LTE is expensive for little coverage, the ONLY thing that I don't like on this phone is ltd storage but will adjust so I can get this badboy, I sold my year old galaxy note to fully fund this purchase, AMAZING :-)
