I've been using this phone for a year now and I don't like it anymore, when I finish a call the last app that I used pops open and then dissapears right away. Also the battery life is not good, even though I turn off wifi and GPS and I barely use Bluetooth and I also close all recent apps. The biggest issue I have is that most of the time when I play a video on Photos or on Facebook I can hear the video but the picture freezes... it doesn't happen on Youtube though.
I've reseted my phone multiple times and it doesn't fix the problem... I'm about to upgrade to SG Note 4. I did have a good experience the first couple of months but I leave it up to you if you wants to purchase this phone. Not what I expected.
Used it since launched. Lollipop ruined it! With so many no voice in call issues. With Kitkat it was blistering fast. With Lollipop camera quality has gone down too.
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2016Nexus 4 is such a mediocre phone overall, but its main flaw is battery. It dies in the afterno... morei have been using the phone for 3 years and i have never had such an experience.
Maybe you are just a slave of another brand and trying to throw some dust in the people's eyes who haven't had the phone, cause i could not imagine where all these lies come from? Never had such issues like, battery drain and instant restart. I mush mention that i have never uploaded any customer rom, or unlocked the bootloader - this is probably the second option why you could have such an experience?
The only cons i have to admit is the camera. Its far cry from the contemporary cameras, but its understandable since there has been 3 years of development from the point Nexus 4 came out.
Lastly i do confirm that have a healthy and peaceful relationship with my phone so far.
I have been using LG Nexus-4 for the last two and half years. Very good phone with practically no issues. It is smooth and giving wonderful user experience. The only problem I faced was, the screen broken after falling from a considerable height and the new screen gave lot of touch issues.
great phone with no need to switch to another phone,
The only thing is that after 3 year of usage and because i dropped it too many times, i lost part of the touch area in the screen recently.
Been using this phone since launch. Looked at upgrades but honestly can't find a good reason to move on. The glass sandwich case is still one of the most stylish on the market and still attracts admiration. As smooth as ever and being a basic level of Android, no skins or propriatory software, has been the fist in by group of friends to receive Android updates, often by months. Often had updates others never get. Although at this point it has probably reached the limit of operatiing software updates as the latest build of Android supports features such as finger print recognition which this phone doesn't have. Battery is the original one and still lasts over 24 hours. I've seen lots of complaints about battery life but this isn't my experiece and wonder if those phones have had unreliable third party batteries fitted. Although the phone isn't built to allow removal of battery it can be done, check YouTube. App upgrades have never been a problem. Still pleased with it after all this time.
I use the Nexus 4 for 1 year and i have a good expirience with the clean Android system with no bloatware with Lollipop 5.1.1 are perfect , i love it ! And the design and glass material and size are perfect for me , but the bad things on this device for me are the front câmera , they are só slow wit mid/low-light , and with HDR mode on , and the battery life...i can't complete 6hrs on moderate usage with this device...

Nexus 4 is such a mediocre phone overall, but its main flaw is battery. It dies in the afternoon after a night's full charge. And sometimes it drains so fast that charging is not enough, it dies suddenly, even when connected to a charger, and turning it back on is even more painful as it needs to restart all the apps due to the incorrect shutting down (the whole process takes roughly 30 min, with an average number of apps). I would not recommend this device to anybody that wants to have a healthy and peaceful relationship with their phone.
I've been using this phone for 3 years and still works like a charm! No lags Fired up with Nova Launcher and it's very fluid in terms of animation, still supports updates in apps, Can still play High Graphics games and more.... I do not intend to replace this phone for now. I'm looking for a tablet right now to watch movies.
I have been using this phone for 3 years.it is an amazing and wonderful phone.it's price also less than other mobiles.I have dropped my phone many times.and I did 3 times repair as well.now my phone storage almost full.Itz unfair that there is card for this.No software issues.Any high graphical still supported.It still get latest updates instantly.I have never felt that this was a bad phone with my user experience.
AJIT, 22 Feb 2016Bought in May 2013 for 299 USD, still doing good. It is fast, and very responsive. Display is ... moresame like you except I didn't replace the battery, I will replace the phone itself for Nexus 5X but after ordering it don't know if its worth it or shall I just replace the battery of the the Nexus 4
So my 3 year old nexus 4 battery was behaving badly recently , so I decided to replace it with a Nexus 5X and already made an order, after that, I noticed that battery usage goes like this 20% to Messenger and 20% to facebook !!! While I had my FB account deactivated fro two weeks !! I uninstalled the two apps and I feel the battery is fine, shall I just cancel the order and go to the service center and replace the battery ? I checked with them and found its only costing 90 AED to replace here in Dubai (authorized LG centre) I'm just wondering if the phone will be ok after replacing the battery and all , or shall I just proceed with the Nexus 5X which will be arriving this week ?

Bought in May 2013 for 299 USD, still doing good. It is fast, and very responsive. Display is clear. Call quality is good. Camera is good in bright daylight. Otherwise it is sub par. Had to change the battery once. Otherwise no malfunctions.
