BACK IN STOCK AS OF 29 JAN 2013 (US)

1) Many users report cracking the glass on their Nexus 4. Here's one such thread and pic related.

*This link shows two cracked phones: one from a waist high drop and the other from a motorcycle crash. Doesn't seem like many users are reporting unwarranted cracks.

http://forums.androidcentral.com/...4-yet.html

2) Users report that their phone gets pretty warm at times and that their charger is defective

http://forum.xda-developers.com/s...?t=2004976

3) Battery life is no better than the Galaxy Nexus. Screen-on time seems to be between 3 and 3.5 hours. (I get 4 if I use a custom rom and kernel on the Gnex). Just wanted to add that I've had the phone for about a week and battery life was really bad, It seemed that google maps was taking up a lot of background data. After disabling location services battery life increased drastically.

4) Reasons why the Nexus 4 is not worth upgrading to if you already have the Galaxy Nexus

http://forum.xda-developers.com/s...?t=1964138

5) Glass around speaker on the Nexus 4 seems to the most prone to breakage. Probably a design defect.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/s...?t=1999345

6) When the Nexus 4 gets hot, and it can do this easily, the screen will turn yellow at the area on top of the CPU. It does this every time the phone gets hot.

Ships (not so) soon.
16GB: Ships in 5 - 6 weeks (Update 12/15: SOLD OUT)

Google has long-term goals in mind, unlike many companies (of course, many companies also cannot afford such lengthy goals). Google is fine training someone for years so they can profit down the road.

The same goes for Google's products. They aren't money-makers right off the bat and often take years before they are worth anything.

As a person who looks at statistics often, I agree with you.

or they could just hire somebody that's pre-phd, and save the hassle.

I'm pretty sure they're using the PhDs they hired to do stuff related to their field.

I am currently on Tmobile right now, if I buy this phone, I can instantly use it once I swap the sim card? I already have data plan, etc.
Yes but you have to either have a micro sim card, trim down your non micro sim card or get a new one from Tmo.

I bought the Note 2 for $249 with $100 Walmart GC and $35 a month for 3 GB of data only no voice plan.
that is a great plan/deal.
Has anyone reported buying it/getting the phone already and not having trouble with ATT forcing you to get a full-featured plan?

Hard to generalize. However, I can tell you I know some very book-smart people that seem to lack an amazing amount of common sense.
I totally agree - but there are some that are real world too and they're a real diamond in the rough - great to work with too.

Tmobile should be able to punch your existing sim card down to a microsim card. Most tmobile stores have a tool to do this.

Oh, definitely, but I was just stating I could see them hiring intelligent and educated people just to train them. Obviously, these types of cases won't be of Google hiring a rocket scientist just to train the person to become a spokesperson for the company. =P

Android geeks can be fanboys as well. There are just certain things that Apple does better, mostly updates.

Quote from shhaggy View Post :
Because in an ever-changing field, too many degree earners are behind the curve quickly after earning their degrees. How relevant is a Comp Sci degree from the 80s in today's world? Should I be impressed that you can program the hell out of COBOL? Some companies are placing a premium on the ability to learn, not on WHAT you've learned, because they need you to adapt and continue to learn new things.
Computer Science degree doesn't really teach you one programming language. Now they teach OOAD and Architectural Programming. You can learn a new language really fast, cause they are all pretty much the same.

College degree doesn't prepare you for the job. It prepares you to learn new stuffs in a more efficient way.
