Bluemotion, 12 Nov 2012With the Nexus 4, 16Gb of internal storage is more than enough when you consider that you can ... moreSo everywhere you go has a nice fast internet connection..The cloud is useless with a network signal and fast enuf to stream content..I like my smartfone to work its 2012 and we are going backwards this is suppossed to be Googles flagship device,,
Was buying one and got drawn into price which is bargain but having second thoughts now,
well the only con is the storage space if you are living in a 4g less area. Im pretty happy about this phone and looking forward to buy this. I love the nexus series and the android os! u'll get a bunch of mods and development from the guys at xda.
for all who are thinking 16 gb is enough, guys u should accept the fact that u are living in the year 2013!! not in the 90. Now more space = more movies + more songs + more pics + more videos + more fun! now each hd game takes 1-2 GB space. so will need huge storage space. I happy we can connect pendrives and ext hdds to our android phones!! thanks to google and thanks to the guys at android!!
this phone is amazing (untill the new a15 phone is out)
Its seems google is exploding again...
But, from the box contain info on the Google Play store, there is no earphone included...
Is this true, this phone will be sold without the earphone...?!!?
I have one biiig question about the on screen / virtual buttons: how do you edit them?? The screen is 15:9 aspect ratio and with the on screen buttons on it the aspect becomes 14:9, and the thing is that I HATE black bars, and I don't want apps to run with black bars, and also many apps are HD (1280*720) so having an app running in 1196*672 (that's the 16:9 resolution the app is going to take in the remaining area) will make it become blurry(not working in native resolution).
But then it hit me: the phone has 48 pixels on the side beside the HD screen. What if I could place those virtual buttons in that place, cause many of the apps that I have mentioned work in landscape mode. But the problem is that I've seen that on the Galaxy Nexus the buttons stay in the same place, they just rotate the orientation. But on the Nexus 7, the virtual buttons rotate with the image and app.
So, is it possible to make the virtual buttons move to the long part of the phone / the 48*1280 part when in landscape mode like it happens on the Nexus 7 ( the buttons always remain on the bottom of the screen, even when rotate ) in some way?? And I know about the option to remove them at all, but then android becomes tricky..
Hey gsmarena team,
I love reading your phone reviews. So please post a review for this device real soon. Thank you.
LG-Never, 12 Nov 2012Problem is not hardware, it is software provided by LG. I hope Google will support its phone ... morewith no hard feelings man (LG-never)...but do u even know what nexus actually means ??? u r saying that it is going to be a crap if software is supported by LG ...only google will support the OS and provide the latest updates as soon as they are released ...LG has got nothing to do with this.. ..dats y it is NEXUS...
8 and 16 GB of internal memory with no option to extend it? What the hack is wrong with the smartphone devs these days? I have over 20 GB of flacs on my old Xperia Arc + another 5 GB worth of Rom kits, free apps and backups and I've yet to see a new phone worth to update to, except for Iphones, which I don't like. All of them that would otherwise interest me seem to share the same poor design in which an SD card is not an worthy option. I mean you can take pretty nice movies at 1080p@30 fps, you have a very nice sound card in them so you could successfully use your smarthphone as a music player, not to say about a navigation program with full world maps, but you can't really use any of these features properly because there is not enough space (I really wonder if you can use more than 5.5 GB on that 8 GB version). I'm totally intrigued and speechless...
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2012Will LG Nexus 4 release in India? Looking forward to buy this phone.go through maniac store friend.. u can find nexus 4 16 gb for 27450...
With the Nexus 4, 16Gb of internal storage is more than enough when you consider that you can get a sim with unlimited data which will enable you to stream all you want from the cloud. Google+ will support libraries of 20,000 songs (launching in the UK this week), and with Google services either free or a fraction of the cost of Apple for additional storage, this phone makes more sense than ever before. Google see that Cloud storage is the way for the future and this phone is a future phone.
The Nexus is and has never been about entertainment and recording HD movies etc., it is all about connectivity and development, latest OS updates from Google and owning the bleeding edge of Google.
I will be ditching my 64Gb iPhone 4S and buying the 16Gb Nexus 4 with an unlimited 1 month rolling contract; help pave the way for the future and go for it people!
Will LG Nexus 4 release in India? Looking forward to buy this phone.
Nikky, 12 Nov 2012Please someone help me!! I really want to know more about this phone. I know that Nexus phones... moreFirstly i would check out alot of review websites before buying the phone, from what i've read i understand that although lacking certain features such as: no expandable memory only 16/8 gb, no removable battery, no LTE but this is all on preference. For what the phone is worth you are really getting what you pay for and massive deal on the phone e.g. great connectivity, good battery life, good internet e.t.c. i am currently deciding between Xperia S, LG optimus 4x and nexus 4. I am going for the nexus 4 because of the updates making it more future proof than the others.
LG-Never, 12 Nov 2012Problem is not hardware, it is software provided by LG. I hope Google will support its phone ... moreThanks. But one good thing about an LG Nexus would be the updates. In any other LG phone updates are late, but not on this one as it is 'Google' Nexus

I hope Google will support its phone rather than LG.
If LG does, you'll get only an LG phone with a lot of problems.
Please someone help me!! I really want to know more about this phone. I know that Nexus phones are awesome, but I have never used LG. I want to know about the camera and its music quality and the overall hardware. Please can someone help??
i've seen some reviews from another site, so many pros and cons. most talked topic, is about it's network. some would like to have LTE on this device for faster connectivity, while others thinks that's ok coz it's not really necessary and you can save some battery without it. me? don't care bout dat.
what really matters to me is, well, price. i'm living in a country without access to google store, and they said lg will sell this device at a higher price! it's heart breaking :(( like i wanna change my nationality just to get closer to you oo google store, LOL! seems like lg gonna sell it not less than $600 here in indonesia.
and have you seen reviews from the v*rge? they said the glass on it's back could break easily
