LG phones have had pretty bad luck in India. All Optimus range phones flopped miserably not due to over expectation but because phones were bad in software and hardware synergy. Nexus 4 so far seems to be the best of all QUAD CORE phones reported on various sites and media. Jelly Bean 4.2 is buttery smooth and pack a punch that can knock-out every other phone. Only crib is 16 GB only memory which restricts the usage of KRAIT QUAD CORE and 2 GB RAM. With this LG should focus more on hardware synergy and look for stock android features as their SKIN is the problem area which is neither Aesthetic nor Stable.

2GB RAM in practical unnecessary for non-expandable memory phone like LG Nexus 4.
I really need to see this before I buy anything else in the market. The specs kinda troubles me with non expandable memory & low battery life but I'll just wait for a while to get a hands on preview before deciding anything.
SeekerX, 19 Nov 2012Hi.. I need a li'l help here. I m looking forward to ask a friend in canada to buy it for me.... moreHey, I bought Samsung Galaxy Nexus from US. There is nothing you need to pay apart from the mobile+shipping+tax. Only thing you wont get service here, but for me I never faced issue in mobile for servicing. Wish you the same :)
Padhu, 21 Nov 2012Gone through the XDA Forums where ppl say that Nexus 4 Doesn't support USB OTG.. :( is it true... moreI don't know exactly, but I think that every phone can be connected throw OTG, the difference is that some can power that OTG, and some need a special cable that plugs in the wall and brings its own power.
But again, someone please confirm...
frnds,if lg does not drop its price, then we can go for htc droid dna, awesome phn with similar features
Sundar Pichai, 21 Nov 2012In developed countries this phone is subsidized by Google that is why it is so cheap. This is ... more Good reasons, but google is too partial in that case.
'm from developing county.
In that case,Google services might vanished from the planet Earth earlier than expected (2016).
$350 in US is exclusive of Tax and Shipping
Shipping shouldnt be the reason for diff. If so, most of the mobiles are manufactured in China (not sure of LG) which means the mobiles should be of higher price in US than in India.
In developed countries this phone is subsidized by Google that is why it is so cheap. This is because in Developed countries people buy apps,music etc from Google Play Store from which Google makes money.On most of phones they make more money than the subsidy cost.In other countries piracy is very high and there is no significant revenue so they cannot recover the subsidy cost.
