     Value for money 2 December, 2013 On
    Software: The phone has Jelly Bean 4.3 which is the latest version of Android, and carries the promise of quick future updates of the succeeding versions (Key Lime Pie 5.0 for example). This is one of its best and most important features, you’ll be at the cutting edge of mobile software (albeit stock), and Google is taking it seriously. This becomes apparent as you use the phone, everything is quite intuitive and the lag that Android used to be blamed for earlier has vanished since the implementation of Project Butter. The user interface looks and feels good in stock mode, and one always has the option to tinker with launchers (I’d suggest Nova Launcher Prime). I have to add some extra bits about the user interface now.

    1. Google Now: Excellent concept, but it’s not really efficient in India (as compared to US and UK), nor is it completely responsive to our accent. It’s much better than Siri though in that regard. As more and more information gets based online, this will become better.

    2. Keyboard: Google has released its version of the Swype keyboard (it comes inbuilt, you can turn it off if you don’t like it), and it’s WONDERFUL! The prediction software it uses is second to none, it’s almost like the phone reads your mind. You can still type normally with the swipe function turned on, comes in handy when one wants to type in Hindi or any other language.

    Engine: The phone comes with a Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU, 2GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset. Now this was the benchmark on devices released towards the end of last year, it has since been overtaken by HTC One and Samsung S4 among others. Although the spec sheet looks good on paper, the phone has been known to trail phones like the Samsung S3 and HTC One X+ on certain benchmarks but this has been attributed to those apps not having received updates to utilise Jelly Bean effectively and the fact that Jelly Bean is more taxing on the processor than ICS. But based on usage, this phone functions perfectly and unless you’re into heavy gaming, it will not disappoint you. Hanged once for me while playing F18 Carrier Landing, and that could have been due to some unfixed bug in that game.

    Design: Although it’s not exceptionally designed, this is a phone that is pleasing to the eyes and hands. Build quality is really good, much better than Samsung, but not Apple or HTC level. The shiny design on the back is nice, but beware, its glass, and prone to scratches and cracks. The phone has Gorilla Glass 2 up front but a screen guard is advisable. As is a polycarbonate cover for the back, Amzer seems to provide a few choices in India (I’d suggest Spigen or Rearth but I’m not sure if they’re available in India yet, I use a Rearth Rinke Slim, got it from the US).

    Camera: The camera I must admit was a bit disappointing. After having used the cameras on iPhone 5 and HTC One X, I was left wanting by the Nexus. True, it has an 8MP camera, but the way it performs could have been better. There is a lag before the picture is taken, unlike the Apple and HTC phones. Don’t get me wrong, the phone takes good pictures (as long as you hold it still and the object you’re clicking stays still). It takes good HDR pictures too. It’s just that it doesn’t live up to its competition.

    Battery: This could be a sore point for those of us who’re on 3G plans. On decent to heavy usage, my phone lasts between 6-8 hours on a full charge. But if you switch to using only 2G networks and use it minimally, it can go up to 15 hours on a full charge. When you check your battery status you’ll see that the screen takes up a lot of juice. One way to combat this is to set your brightness low, or put it on Auto. The battery cannot be replaced, and LG claims it has a life of 800 charge cycles.

    Other Points:
    1. Heating: The phone heats up on sustained usage of intensive apps, towards its top on the back. It does the same on phone calls lasting more than half an hour, can get uncomfortable sometimes.
    2. Integration of Google Apps: Maps & Gmail are a breeze to use (sustained use of Navigation will drain your battery though).
    3. Memory: You get 12.72 GB of usable space, pretty decent unless you have a huge music collection you have to carry around or if you’re into heavy gaming. You can use Dropbox and Google Drive too.
    4. Has replaced my computer for almost all browsing purposes.

    Overall, I’m very impressed with this phone and I’d recommend it without blinking an eyelid, because although this phone is not perfect, for that price, this is as close to perfection as it gets!!

     Wonderful piece of hardware with software 12 December, 2013 On
    Wanting a great mobile experience?? Wondering which one to go ahead with? Dude, this is the choice, go ahead with nexus. You just need to buy a back cover to keep it safe if you are crazy and you keeping throwing your phones for crappy reason! Great ROM's available out there, customize it the way you like...and for the white back, it's cool and trendy...It's a Google product. Don't think at all!

  3.  Phone which sets the standard. 26 March, 2014 On
    Google's Nexus smartphones have always set the standard when it comes to a pure Google experience.Beautiful design with glass back and a soft pattern. Fits perfectly in hand.
    It challenges every Android phone with its specs and price. It can equal performance with flagship model of any brand.
    1. This is a pure Google experience without any custom UI and really smooth Android which is rare to be seen on any device.
    2. Display is amazing with HD resoution(~318 ppi pixel density),its sharp and colors are really good unlike Samsung thanks to LCD.
    3. Quadcore make the OS really smooth and fast.
    4. Camera is one of the set back of the phone,it could have been better.
    5. The limited memory without any expansion could be frustrating.
    6. Battery wiill last you more than a single day with moderate usage.
    Best thing about this phone is the latest Android updates,the updates if any will be hell fast to reach on your device.
    This device is for those user who don't want any adulteration in Android experience.
    My recommendation is for 16GB model and if someone can spend more then go for Nexus 5 blindly.

  4.  Nexus4 25 March, 2014 On
    Great phone. Its been working great for the past year. No problems. Battery life is good. My nexus has never crashed. I would by the Nexus 5 when it comes out, but might switch to Samsung because there is more gear and I would like an otter box for my phone as well. Thanks!

     Great! 26 January, 2014 On
    The Nexus 4 is beautifully designed with a stunning display and rocking the latest version of Android.
    The screen is great another new addition is something called Daydream. It's an odd idea – your phone goes into a light sleep mode, playing a screensaver instead before it goes to sleep.

    Beautiful, elegant design
    Excellent screen
    Android 4.2
    Unbelievable price

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

    The Verdict:
    The latest android OS is great.
