Google Announced the LG Nexus 4 today. Although this is a big release for both the companies, it wasn’t a big surprise as most of the specs were leaked before the release.

We Published the Review of the LG Nexus 4 before the announcement.
The device is based on LG’s flagship device Optimus G



The Core
snapdragon s4
1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro with Krait CPUs. What a whooper of a Core for the LG Nexus 4! The device will be super fast and what ever you throw at it, it will respond smoothly. Supporting the Core is a Powerhouse 2 GB Ram. This Core really comes in the league of Galaxy Note 2.

Camera and Display

IPS LG nexus 4
IT has a  4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS Plus (1280 x 768 pixels) display with Zerogap Touch technology and Corning Gorilla Glass 2. The real disappointment is the IPS Display which could have been replaced by SUPER AMOLED. Sized Considerably the screen is standard, not a feature of this Phone.

Form Factor:

shape and size nexus
133.9 x 68.7 x 9.1mm and weighing 139g, it is certainly not among the thin smartphones out their. With phones like Galaxy S3 at 8.6mm and HTC one X with 8.9 mm, this devices stands at 9.1 mm.
The 9.1 mm thickness includes the 2100 mAh battery rated for 15.3 hours of talk time.

jelly bean 4.2 nexus
ITS ANDROID JELLY BEAN 4.2 and it is awesome. The OS is called the new flavor of Jelly Bean, an interesting tagline. The OS has features like Multiple User Accounts, Photosphere and Gesture Typing.

Photosphere allows you to take photos in all directions. In short it is panorama Photo capturing.

Gesture Typing is something unique. It is something like swping your hand over the keyboard to type a word. you just Swipe your finger over the letters you want to type, lifting after each word is complete.


Nexus 4 no LTE
The LG NEXUS 4 HAS NO LTE! What a rip off for such a good smartphone. With GSM/HSPA+ models with CDMA to follow soon, the device will loose customers due to this.


The Pricing starts from $299 for a 8 GB Version and $349 for a 16 GB Version


For the Powerful Core Freaks and Android Lovers, it is the must HAVE Phones. This will probably be the first phone out with Android 4.2 Jelly bean and you don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to use it. With the pricing Google has set, it is a pretty good bargain!

Drawbacks? Compared to other High end smartphones, it hasn’t got much to offer except the OS and it will loose that advantage as soon as other Android Devices get the Update.

Will you buy it over the LG Optimus G?
