  • Nexus 4 by Google Review
    Lucky A (May 7, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Nexus 4 being a budget friendly phone is a complete package for people who are looking for a pure Android experience with no skins on top of it.This phone was the first to ship with android 4.2.2 out of the box and it is the most smooth and fluid android experience i have ever had. The 4.70 inch display is sharp enough to keep me coming back to this device. The colors are vivid and true to life. The 8 mp rear camera is not the best as far as smartphone cameras are concerned but does a fair decent job during daylight. 1.5 Ghz snapdragon 800 chipset, adreno 320 gpu combined with 2 GB of ram does a fantastic job in handling all the high end processing required for games and apps as well. The battery life of the Nexus 4 is only 2100 mAh and not that great which requires frequent charging if used heavily. If someone wants a smooth vanilla experience of android that gets regular updates as soon as Google releases (Currently updated to Kitkat 4.4.2) it and a phone that has a unique design with that gorgeous glass back and soft touch around the corner for proper handling, this is the phone to go for.

  • My N4 Review
    Rohith Iyer (May 4, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Google Nexus4 is a phone for all the google fans who wish they had the purest of android experience in their device. Nexus4 packs in a good processor with quad core S4 Snapdragon Pro 1.5 Gc with matching 2 GB RAM for support and this deadly combination makes the mammoth looking solid block a great phone to own with minimal softwares gimmick and a great piece of hardware with regular updates from Google. Battery @ 2100 Mah is the dampener which leaves you asking for more. Pros: Great piece of HW with regular SW updates Cons: Battery Life Non Full HD SCreen Panel

  • Royal Smartphone
    Harsh Kawalia (May 20, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Yes, I call my device a royal smartphone as it feels so good in my hand and that is even after a year of it's purchase, this looks absolute beauty from every angle. When I first heard that LG gonna manufacture the fourth edition of the Nexus line up, I was a bit disappointed as I didn't like the LG phones. Then Google launched their famous Google Nexus 4 in November 2012 with not so famous promotion. Next day, I checked the specs first then price and then the pics of device. I was surprised and overjoyed at that moment when I looked at the pics, I mean who offers these specifications, this beauty of a smartphone at this price. I instantly decided I am gonna buy this phone only and started waiting for the launch of the device in India. Surprise: I heard that Nexus 4 will be launched in few days but to my surprise the waiting period converted from days to months and LG made a mess with it's stocks as the beautiful device wasn't available globally. But, I was sure that I am gonna buy this smartphone only. So, I decided to buy this device from US when it comes to stock as I couldn't wait any further. I know the cons. of buying this from outside India but I have made my mind and I didn't care about warranty issues. Delight: Finally, I got my device on Mar 4, 2013 through Blue Dart courier. It took 20 days from US to New Delhi. So, I had my first smartphone in my hand and I was delighted to what. When I touched the device, the first word comes to my mind that "It's Royal" . The feeling I got that time was amazing. The back panel is so gorgeous that every time light touches it, the sparkles started glowing and make you keep staring at them all the time you pick the phone. Specs: Everybody talks about the specs and benchmarks of the phone you gonna buy but first thing I check on a device is Quality. Nexus 4 was the best specs smartphone at that time when it was launched and it handles everything you throw at it. I was completely satisfied with the specs and even today it offers the best specs in its category. User Interface: UI of Google Nexus 4 is completely stock Android UI. As this phone is meant for Developers, they are more than happy with clean and fresh UI. I liked the UI the moment I see it in reviews of most websites as I know I can enhance UI afterwards(through Rooting, Launchers etc.). The main thing is that UI of my device still after a year or so feels so smooth and buttery which shows the performance of Snapdragon S4 chip. Performance & Gaming: As this device runs on Snapdragon S4 chip, there is no match of its performance with MediaTek chips. My phone runs so smoothly that I have seen it hanged till date. Gaming is done through Adreno 320 chip and it's still one the best in the business. Why I bought this Device: This phone suited me the best as the way I want to use my smartphone. Cons: Battery (6-8 hrs on 3G) Camera (Typical LG Sensor) Phone Suited For: Typical mobile enthusiasts who want to have best value for their bucks.

    Jatin Mehta (May 8, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    I bought this phone an year ago.it is best phone under such a small price tag it has a great design especially the glass back panel.a thing that I don't like is that it has no external SD card support and no radio. One is I love about it is that it receives android update as soon as it is released

  • Elegant phone from Google.
    Aayush Agarwal (May 22, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    A very good phone in the Nexus series from Google- LG. Made for the 20k range customers, the device gives phenomenal hardware in that price range. The high end qualcomm 1.5 GHz processor and 2 GB RAM unsures the device runs real smooth. The vanilla android in this device lets you enjoy the raw look of Android which is another cool thing in itself. Its 8 MP camera is above average and so is the 4.7 inch display. To sum it up, the best phone in around this price tag.

  • Best smartphone i got
    Shreyas Uttarkar (May 20, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    This is my first smartphone. And i have used many others too. But this is very fast with 2gb ram. It is a very good phone and that too it comes in the budget. I have had best experience with this phone and it hasn't still disappointed me yet. But there is a battery consumption problem but mostly due to android kitkat, other than that its a quiet a good one and i recommend it to every one.

  • Nexus 4 review
    Shashidhar Yendigeri (May 17, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Nexus 4 is one phone which u can fall in love it,the moment see it. It is the most beautiful designed phone .It is a budget phone with top end features.Built by an lg and Google,no doubt that this is masterpiece product.I was shocked to find that there was no earphones.The back of the phone is made of glass with design pattern on it.When subjected to sunlight,it glitters beautifully.As a result,it is slippery.Phone should be handled carefully.The glass is prone to scratches .My advice is use a case or bumper. .It has 4.7 inch screen with screen resolution of 768x1280 pixels.watching videos is awesome with such a resolution.It has 1.5 quad core snapdragon processor with 2GB ram.I have using this phone since one year and trust me,not even time it has lagged.Games turn out well.Browsing is quick.Coming to the software,it has the latest software.Being a nexus phone,it is the first among all phone to get update.It has advantage over all phones as it can give quick and guaranteed update.It has a 16gb storage.One thing which is lacking is ,it doesn't have support for externally memory.Anyways 16gb of memory is more than enough for an average users.Coming to the camera,it packs an 8MP rear camera .It has front camera too.Photos taken were decent and sometimes photos came out very good in outdoor conditions.During night time,photos turned out to be average,but not the best.Although,its camera cannot be compared to top end smartphones such as Samsung galaxy s4,htc one,it is still the best camera phone at that price tag.Coming to the audio quality,it is average.I wish its speaker was loud.One more thing i noticed was phone used to get hot when used continuously.Sometimes it becomes so hot that,it becomes very difficult to use.Coming to the battery,it has a battery capacity of 2100mah which is average for an 4.7 inch smartphone.On using it,i was disappointing to say that battery drains out very fast.It didn't even last me even half a day.My recommendations is carry a charger wherever u go.Based on the above review,ill definitely recommend it as it is the best phone available at that price.So go now and purchase it!!. Phone rating:8.6/10 Cons: -beautiful design -latest software -guaranteed update -less price Cons: -gets heated quickly -battery is disappointing -camera is average -prone to scratches and cracks.
