It wasa badly built cheap phone, hated mine so much for all the hype I bought into before buying it.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2020just like you beloved oneplus didnt kill any flagship despite advertised it for 7 year straigh... moreOnePlus is much beter than any junk LG made , my Nexus literally fell to pieces. OnePlus 5 is going for 3.5 years with no issues and is still getting updates. Oh and its a work phone too.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2020Nexus flagship killer? Did not kill any flagship of its time. just like you beloved oneplus didnt kill any flagship despite advertised it for 7 year straight and then they settled. So much for "never settle"
I will use my Nexus 4 as a secondary device! Loaded with Lineage OS 17... Works like a charm 👌🏼
Let me guess y'all trying to blame Google for not using a flagship chipset on the pixel 5 like other OEMs?
joe nodden, 04 Oct 2020The $300 OnePlus One: "Am I a joke to you?"It was not a Google phone. But yes, best alternative with stable and clean Android.
potato4k, 04 Oct 2020That’s because there were not that many tech youtubers back then.
Now, Google cares more in p... more"..Now, Google cares more in pandering these tech tubers by sending them fancy packaging than actually giving consumers good products."
I think you are confusing Google with OnePlus. The tech-Youtubers think the 'plastic' Pixel 4a is just meh and good enough only because its cheap while the same YouTubers think the 'plastic' Nord with its deceptive metal finish, is some innovation breakthrough even though it snaps in a durability test..
Ya but the Nexus also had sub par cameras, and skimped out on battery life, vibration motor, etc. As far as I know, Pixels have one of the best vibration motors and if stats of the Pixel 4a are anything to go by, the battery I'm sure has been rectified to a large extent on the Pixel 5, and the camera is one of the best in the world, if not the best. And moreover, 90% of people who use pixel phones anyway don't buy it for the raw power of the processor anyway. And considering how powerful the 765G is, I'm sure it will be more than ample for most users. So on the contrary, I think it's a very smart move by Google
That's what I have always been saying. Nexus was better than pixel, in every way.
The nexus 4 was an okay phone for the price at the time. The battery life was atrocious though.
The high end chipset was the only good thing that phone had going for it to be completely honest... And I had one of those.
But there a lot of diffrence between todays flagship n nexus 4 s flagship,🤔
I'm telling you. We've gone downhill from there. Those phones were beautiful and there ergonomics, let's leave it here.
I had the Nexus 4 and it had a lot of forward thinking features like face unlock. The biggest thing holding it back was the lack of 4g and was the major reason I stopped using it. The size was perfect for one handed use and the build quality was excellent.
I owned one untill the display gave out. It was the beat phone that i owned till date.
Ahem... it had a subsidized price on the Google Store and a flagship price everywhere else. It wasn't a cheap phone when I went to buy one at a LG brick and mortar store.
Maybe Google figured out giving away phones wasn't really a good idea.
