4 Years OLD. still going strong. No plans to upgrade until fails.
I will have exchanged battery in few days so I will prolong it's life. What IMHO is unique and I love about it is width x height ratio. If you look at phones the usual ratio is 1280x720. This one has 1280x768. So for reading texts you have phone that looks like 5,2' or something with much more compact form.
AThoughder, 15 Nov 2016Is it worth buying one now ?Phone is still running extremely well, much better then few newer ones so yes i would recomment you buying this phone. I still got mine and its perfect.

You can get an entire screen assembly from ebay for less than $40 and it's easy to replace. I did it even though i actually got a new phone as well - it's hard to not use the opportunity to upgrade.
Anyway, the Nexus 4 is still a decent phone and very much usable especially on Android 5.1. I use it when I travel as it is unlocked and the kids play with it.
I've been using it since it's release and it still works perfectly, not even a dead pixel or touch dead zone.
I bought this phone 3 years ago and it's perfect. Just perfect. Even now it works fine, very smooth, without any lagging. So I am so sorry I dropped it on the floor and now 1/5 of the screen stopped working and it bothers me, even if I can do almost everything thanks to rotating screen. But, surely this is a well worth phone and I recommend it to everybody.
And for me, now is time to move on and get another Google device - Nexus 5x :-).

I had the same problem but I was able to fix it ever since I rooted the device. You can now install Marshmallow 6.x.x operating software although Nougat 7.x.x. is going to be available soon.

Recently middle portion of screen touch is not working. Is there any workout for this? I really don't want to replace this phone, it's still the best phone

Ordered from AliExpress and replaced it by myself. Cost me ~40$ per display with the minimum necessary tool the send with it.
Phone works like new

Check out fixit.com for a guide and buy the parts through Amazon instead of eBay. (Amazon is generally better with returns if the part doesn't work)
This phone has served me very well for almost 4 years, Battery does not last as long as advertised above but still lasts all day with moderate use. Problem i'm having now is that the charge port no longer enjoys having power cords plugged into it and laughably slips them out at the slightest provocation. Thinking about an LG X Power. Seems like exactly the same phone.
I have been using it for the last 4 years. Fluid performance till today. Mine was a 8 gb version so I am running out of space (most of the time). Battery was never too good but it lasted for a day but after 4 years it is obviously almost dead. The experience of a pure android phone is awesome.

Same thing happened with me. After exactly 3 years, my screen stopped responding, not completely but partially and I was planning to replace the display (panel+digitizer) and it was costing me around 4500 INR (around 60 euros). But I replaced it with OP3 and believe me it's well worth it if you can invest that much amount of money for a new phone. Nexus 4 was no doubt the best phone I ever had but once something goes wrong with the phone it is better to sell it off rather than investing.
