Google Nexus 4 vs. Samsung Galaxy S III: Fan favorites - read the full textAndroid devices come from all walks of life, but in each generation there is a "chosen one". In 2012, it's the Nexus 4 and, as an overall package, this is probably the best Google has ever delivered. Yet, by a mean twist of fate, it has the most formidable...

Was a happy Nexus 4 user until yesterday when after going out of juice and restarting the phone I lost all network connection whatsoever. All of a sudden just like that. Tried everything, from unroot to factory reset to switching radio band preferences nothing works. And my SIM works in other phones and no other SIms work in mine, so its definitly the phone.

Did some research and found out it might have to do with the radio image in Android 4.3, quite a few people affected by this and google seem to know about it too.. Hoping for a fix on 4.4. It s*cks because I really liked that phone, but now it feels like a let down, especially since the phone is only 2 months old.

Anyway, if anybody had a similar issue and can help me, I would be glad to go back to my Nexus. Until then I found a 3 month old S3 for 200$ which will haveto do the trick I guess =s

The Nexus 4 require to root and use custom kernel to unleashed the power. Once it used custom kernel, the battery can last longer than S3, the IPS+ screen much better than the stock kernel screen. The antutu benchmark shoot up from 16k to 21k (no need oc). Just the camera still sux

I think it would be a fair comparison of a Nexus 4 and a SumSung S4, rather than with a Samsung S3

Sorry but even after a million words in your review in favor of the cheap looking s3, the Nexus 4 is the real people's champ and only one thing is cheap about it - the price.
I am posting this comment using a nexus 4 and yes it is miles more awesome than, I'm my opinion, all the other smartphones.

why do people without using a nexus 4 comment on it?
I have sold my sgs3 for my nexus 4 simply because it used to lag!
I am using my nexus 4 for a month now and just got switched off because battery was low
And for people concerned about the battery, I USE MY NEXUS 4 FOR A DAY WITHOUT CHARGING
And for people concerned about storage, I GOT 50 GB ON BOX!
So all my pics and videos are uploaded on it
And till now I've never felt the need of a 32gb space
Moreover of u need more space, root and remove all bloatware!
The only wish I'd have before dying is to see a nexus 4 running 4.2.2 lag :p
