Still shame about latest Nexus it is a gigantic and shunned by many of us lot. I have held it but just ridiculous.
The Nexus 4, for the price, is an excellent phone. The finish is very impressive, it feels like a premium phone (more so than a Samsung Galaxy, but the Samsungs weigh less). It's powerful and responsive.
However there are some corners that have been cut. The cameras aren't really up to much, they work but they are nothing special. The Phone isn't particularly clear when making phone calls (crackly). The display isn't as bright as the Samsungs, and sometimes can look a bit washed out under bright conditions (a very minor criticism compared to the others though).
Also being a Nexus, whilst there is little crapware installed, some of the Google apps aren't as good as best of breed in the Google play store. Also whilst you get the latest updates before other manufacturers, you also get the rough edges as well (i.e. it can be quite buggy when a new major release comes out). Two such persistent bugs include:
- Phone reboots quite often when taking pictures (in actual fact this is a kernel crash and in due course will corrupt your storage if it happens too often think computer blue screening).
- Random switch offs - or rather refusing to wake up - AKA sleep of death (SOD).
If you have experienced the above then both can be fixed by updating the kernel to the Franco kernel and then setting the minimum sleep frequency in the Franco kernel app. BTW just replacing the kernel will fix the camera bug (which Google aren't going to fix as they are introducing a new Camera API... at some point).
If you're technical and like to tinker or don't mind the odd rough edges then go for it. Otherwise I'd go for a Samsung S4 - possibly with a Cyanogen Mod firmware. I can't see myself getting another Nexus personally.

It can be easily replaced even by yourself with a minimum of equipment, I can help you with a step by step tutorial. All you need is to buy a charging module. Add me on fb Greeneyes Man.
I am using this till Sammy s6 comes out and its super smartphone..Along with all the other Nexuses they are special except for the latest Nexus 6,what happened?. Anyway if Sammy s6 not good going to source second hand Nexus 5 till the Nexus 5 second generation comes out made by Huawei.
It's a bloody good phone if u play decent games and at the same time do not want a very big phone.. serves well for daily use and given decent RAM, supports the latest OS which is the star feature.
I finally killed mine by trying to change the battery, which broke a connector that cannot be fixed by mortal men. But it was a good daily phone that I'd been using since they first came out. Very satisfied while it served me.

This phone has remained my daily driver for two years. Great phone still today and will probably use it until it dies. Only two things that would have made this phone better. 1) better battery life, 2) better Camera.
