Nexus 4 review

 

Impressive specs at an even more impressive price point

Beautiful, elegant design ; Excellent screen ; Android 4.2 ; Unbelievable price

No expandable memory ; No flash internet ; No 4G ; Camera could be better

This phone has some of the best specs around and it's fantastic value. Had it not been crippled by silly things like a paltry memory allowance and not-quite-there camera, we'd have recommended it immediately and given it a five star rating.

Google Nexus 4

 

The Nexus is a strange category of device. Designed as a pure Android experience, it's a family of Google devices that's principally pitched at Android developers, but also popular with consumers. There is a lot to be excited about the Nexus 4. It's...

Good value for money, slick and fast, display is excellent, beautiful design and build

Out of the box there are some features missing you'll find elsewhere, storage a little on the low side and no expansion option, camera performance isn't great

There is a lot to be excited about the Nexus 4. It's equipped like a flagship Android handset, but priced like a mid-range phone. This is a huge point for anyone who wants to buy this smartphone outright, rather than taking a contract from someone like...

Google Nexus 4 review

 

The Google Nexus 4 by LG is the brand's new flagship smartphone. Is it any good?

Screen ; Quad-core processor ; PhotoSphere

No 4G ; Chunky ; Dull styling

The Nexus 4 is a great handset for those who want Android in its purest form, but you're better off with the Moto G

Google Nexus 4

 

Launching Android 4.2 the Nexus 4 offers high-end performance at an amazing price.

Staggeringly low price tag ; Android 4.2 ; Great Screen

Camera could be improved ; Just five homescreens ; Memory not expandable

More than just a visually impressive offering, the Google Nexus 4 screen is a reassurance to more clumsy users with the Corning Gorilla Glass 2 coating ensuring that the device is protected against the unavoidable collection of knocks, drops and bumps...

Nexus 4 vs Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone comparison review

 

If you don't want an iPhone - and, believe it or not, there are plenty of us who don't - for most consumers there are just two choices: a smartphone running Android or one that packs Windows Phone 8. We reckon the Nexus 4 currently leads the Google...

Google Nexus 4 video review

 

We were initially a bit worried about the glossy finish of the Nexus 4, making it quite a slippery handset. However, between the front and back of the phone is a grippy rubbery finish. There's no removable cover and the phone feels sturdy and well-built.

Google Nexus 4 review

 

After previously partnering with HTC and Samsung for its smartphones, Google has turned to LG for the Nexus 4. There's plenty of competition in the smartphone market from Android handsets, not to mention the iPhone so what has the Nexus 4 got to stand...

As long as the storage capacities suffice, the Nexus 4 is the definition of a bargain. You quite simply get the performance and features of a high-end smartphone for half the price you would expect to pay. Unless you're set on an iPhone, the Nexus 4 is...

Google Nexus 4 review

 

If Microsoft can get fed up about the state of hardware to such an extent that it's gone and made its own , Google can sure as heck do the same thing. The guys at Mountain View haven't gone alone, though: they've been hooking up with the likes of HTC...

Incredibly good value for money, Fantastic performance, Unspoiled Android goodness

Lacklustre design, Weak battery life

LG Nexus 4 (T-Mobile) review

 

With its recent history of mediocre handsets, LG needs something other than the Optimus G to be its Hail Mary that can carry it to the top. Unfortunately, the Nexus 4 isn't quite it.

The competitively priced LG Nexus 4 delivers a pure and polished experience with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, it's powered by a snappy quad-core processor, and it's packed with new photo-editing and camera features.

The Nexus 4's construction is solid but uninspiring, its call volume is too low, and it lacks 4G LTE.

While the LG Nexus 4 wins on internal performance and user experience, anyone shopping for an unlocked phone should consider a comparable LTE handset first.
