Understandably but unfortunately the Nexus line is a price point mobility device denying it a place as a true topend flagship level device. Specs lack sufficient internal storage not to mention SD Card support. It should also have 3gb or RAM and removable power cell. Baffles me still why Google continues to think the cloud is the same as having onboard storage.
Of course the 8MP primary camera is lacking unless they had used a BSI sensor which they haven't. The LG 8MP setup was OK but doesn't approach the newest 13mp OIS platform. It also appears to be lacking at least one sensor the G2 includes.
Of course by now we know the Nexus was never meant to be a cutting edge top of the line series of smartphones. A pity Google never offered variants from pricepoint model to flagship level.
Its still one sweet device and the first of KitKat phones. Personally I'd root a G2 as there's more to work with on the G2 variants. Yes even with the backside toggles which you get used to using.
Sam, 05 Oct 2013it's gonna be 16MPA new manual has leaked as mentioned on Engadget and Android Police..please rectify the specifications. Thanks
now manual leaked for nexus 5, which will clear all doubts..only 8 MP camera
JohnnSy, 05 Oct 2013It must be so hard to implement Card slot :/32 gb is plenty
JohnnSy, 05 Oct 2013It must be so hard to implement Card slot :/It's not hard, its just that google wants everyone to use their cloud system such as drive, play music, etc. It has its downs and ups.
This is a mid-priced phone with high end specs. Don't whine about it not having a 13MP camera because those phones are expensive as compared to the nexus 5's price. If 2300mah is too low for you just wait for the developers in xda to do their thing. I currently have a 1305mah Xperia P with a custom rom and kernel and it's enough to last 1 day. The upcoming nexus 5 is arguably the best phone for the price.
AnonD-193100, 04 Oct 2013Is Nexus 4 Fine??? Should I Buy It Or Should I Look for any other???Yessss ... Nexus 4 is verrry gooood device ...
Is Nexus 4 Fine???
Should I Buy It Or Should I Look for any other???
I really want to exchange my Nexus 4 for this... Please google.. provide this option for Nexus 4 users.... :(
8 MP with 4128 x 3096 resolution ?! Are you kidding me ? it's 13 MP image resolution not 8 MP !!!
I really like the phone and the assumed spec but what a bland design.; i would of thought a little metal round the edges like the HTC One. Still, no doubt it will come in at a very reasonable price for the spec. You know the one main reason i am going for this phone aside from the spec...its the size. What the heck is going on with these oversize phones being produced HTC One Max LG's own one. Ugly.
I liked my Padfone 2 but alas the build quality for me let this phone down. here's hoping
Google nexus are way cheaper (savings of about $300-400) than samsung phones and packs a lot of punch with the gear they put inside. Sure it has a few shortcomings with no sd slot...the camera images sucked in the nexus 4 too...but its blazing fast and always gets regular android updates. Not to mention that the phones come unlocked...rather than being tied to a mobile carrier on a contract designed to rip you off.
OCTOBER 30... again a month to wait.. hope this time its comes to india under a price tag of 25k-28k along with 32gb built in memory
