This is a user review of the LG Nexus 4.I bought the phone from US ( a 8GB version ) and have been using it for almost 6 months now.

What I like about the phone :

  • The phone is sleek and slim and look good in the hands.

  • Its fast and the processing speed and the RAM adds more boost to the capabilities of the phone.

  • Almost all games works/supports on the phone , but recently while visting the android market , I found some high end games doesn't work on the device.

  • The one high end game that worked , showed some slowness / lag and the frame rate was super slow.

  • Battery life is okie , provided you turn of GPS / Google Play music sync and heavy battery eaters.

  • I get close to day on charge ( i.e from morning 8AM taking it out from charge to connecting it back with 10% to 15% battery at 11PM ) , yes all day my 3G is always on.

  • GPS give in good signal strength and the navigation works like a charm.

  • 3G Receiver also showed good speed for browsing and played youtube videos on 240p in a speed ( My connection is from airtel ) .

  • I havent received any android update yet from google ( since im running the latest version of 4.2.2 ) , so not sure if we at india will get the update , but hopefully we should so.

  • Cooperate email sync perfectly with the EMAIL exchange server .

  • Display is superb and pictures looks really good on it .

  • The price is super cheap , you cant get a better phone with this price.

What I don't like about the phone :

  • I brought a 8GB variant ( since I earlier had a 64MB android phone and only expandable about 2G via micro SD card ) and taught 8GB was more than enough , but out of the box you will only get 5.4G has shortage space .

  • When you start installing games both high end and medium end , you can find that most of the space is eaten up by them,

  • Adding to the plain of limited storage is the cache of the apps that needs a constant cleanup in 2 weeks .

  • My friend complained me that his device ( nexus 4 ) gets hot charging , but I haven't faced that problem , but I would say that while connecting to GPS with 3G on , you're device would get definitely hot .

  • While playing games ( high end ) , I did also find the same problem of heating , but nothing to worry about , it cools down once you shop the high load on the device.

  • Most of the tech guru's always speak about pure vanilla android , but I would say that pure android , is so stupid , there is nothing in it and also its not useful , take for example the Dialer of the pure android , it doesn't give the predictive caller that you want to dial when you start pressing the number ( I used them a lot for quick dialing , rather than searching the contact ( people app ) to get the person you want to dial)

  • Most of these drawback can be easily overcome using third party app , for the example above I use "Dialer one"

  • The camera is not that great , it take okie pictures in sunlight , but useless during low light.

  • The camera has hard to pick focus when the subject is moving , so it always like steady objects.


All the drawback , can be easily overcome using third party apps , so keeping the strong points in mind like processing , ram , quick android update , I would say this is a best phone for the price.

Please note : Im not a Phone camera person ( since I own a DSLR ) , so the phone camera is not a drawback for me at all.

For extra storage I use dropbox , sky drive , google drive etc , All my favorite songs I place it on my phone internals and the rest which I listen occasionally on my cloud, photos also goes to my cloud , so this helps me to overcome the storage limit.

So in short , I would definitely recommend everyone planning to buy to go for it , but yes get the 16GB one , if you are a app lover .
