well this is better than s3
but your logic is dumb
why this is better than s3 is first the price
this is 5000(~90$) rupees cheaper than s3
and has twice the amount of RAM than s3
and of course it is the NEXUS so it shall be future proof and all the developer support in the world
but going all glass vs plastic debate
sir kindly gather some information before you blurt out your opinion
The Nexus 4 launching in INDIA is a big news for the Indian consumers... reading a lot of posts people talking about S3 is better in what aspect???
Glass is better than plastic. Samsung galaxy phones are all plastic body which is the worst standards...
What LG has done is it has finally brought the Nexus to India which is remarkable....
With the latest version of android to be rolled out in the current Google I/O nexus will be the first device to get the update and the S3s will get it prolly after 6 months... the nexus users will have the last laugh ....
Seven months after launch of the device they finally remembered India.. Hellooo , good morning. All lagdroids suck.... Buy lumia 710 instead, saves money and buttery smooth.... Nokia FTW
AnonD-6860, 16 May 2013Lol yu r really noob S3 is based on arm cortex a9 chipset where as nexus 4 on a15 ... 3... moreNexus 4 uses qualcomm Krait processor which is based on cortex a9 itself & not a15
The only thing attractive about this device is the early updates that is guaranteed by google, otherwise i dread LG branded phones. For those calling this "good build quality" because of the "glass" back design, you all make me LMAO because of the apparent contradiction in that statement! Since when did "glass" become a material you'd ascribe as "good build quality"? Perhaps a material like Aluminum (HTC One)would be a better argument. I'll be very happy with polycarbonate material than glass, thank you (It bends and hardly breaks)and is definitely the better build material compared to glass back panel on the N4.
I don't understand what's the meaning of launching this so late in India when Samsung's much awaited S4 launched at the same day as all other major countries.
Nexus 4 is definitely a good phone, but the problem is when everyone wanted it they didn't have enough stock and by the time they had the stock nobody wants it in US and Europe. So what better option than to dump it here.
WTF Here in Mexico is $9000 pesos (After Taxes) Which is as today $735 USD!!! Ugh.. I'm just disappointed of my country, it's a 3rd world country with super high and unfair prices %#$%"#$&.
oh snap thought it was going to be priced by google but its by LG hehehehehe
nishant39, 16 May 2013way too much xpensive... Outdated fone ...battery sucks ane for 2k more can get samsung s3...... moreHeheh....clearly you are the one who is outdated!! What rock do you crawl from under??
Rs. 25,999 is a very good price because in my country, this phone costs 32,000 Rs (585 USD) !!!
It is good phone with pretty good price point, but I want only htc one and no other...so waiting fo it
nishant39, 16 May 2013way too much xpensive...
Outdated fone ...battery sucks ane for 2k more can get samsung s3...... moreGS3 is better than N4? On what basis?
Does it even have a good build quality? No
Does it get faster updates? No
Does it have better benchmark? No
Does it actually perform better? No
The GS3 that you advertise is just a crappy phone from Samsung with its crappy TouchWiz.
Stock Android is always better. Also given the fact that the new Nexus 7 will also have the S4 Pro Quad core chipset, you can bet that Google will support the Nexus 4 for at least 2-3 more years.
Nexus 5 will only be launching in Oct/Nov/Dec.
The new white variant of Nexus 4 that is expected to launch this Google IO (ie today or tomorrow) will also have the same hardware + 32GB + LTE. Since we live in India, we don't have to be bothered with LTE for the moment and if you want the extra storage, then wait. But most of us are fine with the 16GB found in the current variant.
Thax LG, thanks a lot. This is the first Nexus device to be launch in India. Samsung never believe us. But LG has. Hope this would be a great success.
You kidding me? N4 a9 based? N4 krait based, qualcomm not follow convensional architectuere from ARM, they custom it. Krait is similiar performance with a15, no wonder because krait is custom version a15 based
AnonD-59771, 16 May 2013this will be worth the buy if price was bit lowered if new nexus 5 comes out dont buy this ... moresgs 4 has been made aosp and google will sell it at play store for 649 usd...now they dont need nexus 5...
Thomas, 16 May 2013I've been waiting for a long time to hear this news. Finally when it came, the news of pricing... moreI can understand your frustration, but the fact it is priced for 16 GB. The price(24K) you were talking is for 8GB version.
And more over you want to prefer one year old samsung s3 over this ? I hope you know the difference between stock android and Touchwiz (samsunf blootware).
Trust me, i am using this since 3 months, you are no way going to regret your buy (nexus 4).
