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 aggressively undercuts competitors' pricing as it sets out to wipe the floor with most of them in terms of speed and...

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 :-)

The Nexus 4 aside, how come the Galaxy S2 posted such excellent benchmark? It trashed its successor S3 in every one of it. The scores been appearing in a few review already but they are different from what is reported in the original S2 review or the earlier S3 vs S2 review.

Did it receive Jellybean and gain an ultra boost to its performance? Or is that the new S2 Plus running on dual Krait?

I have this phone and its fast! Battery is average. Not terrible for me. Standby time is very good. 16gb is good enough for me which has 12gb free. LTE is not great here in singapore so its not a big deal for me. Bought it $500 from a guy which is far from $350 on google playstore but it was worth the cost considering it had to be imported and the demand of the phone was great. Im lucky to be the one of the first nexus owners in the world... A happy camper.

What do I care what other countries have it or not? I don't live there.. I live here, in NA lol

anyway this phone might be good for some people and for other its just not suitable for their needs,
for me it really suits all my needs and i dnt care about storage, LTE , bla bla
for the price we are getting it its just awesome, i dnt wanna spend 200$ more to get sgs3 which is flooded with TouchWiz stuffs which gonna be slow after a while, No Thanks. i preffer pure google experience no crappy polish's.
