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.

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

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.

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.

Agreed. Possibly reduced cost even within original time window = Slick. Except it may not be easy getting the shipping refund. From the horror stories of Nov 13th orders, the people you can call on the phone are quite powerless. Going to start the process tomorrow (I imagine a lot of us will) so we'll see how that goes.
I thought they blanket refunded anyone that was delayed? I am sure once enough people start barking about being charged without actually shipping they will do some kind of refund for everyone or at least those who are vocal. I thought I remember reading some small print somewhere during the order process explicitly saying, google doesn't charge you until the order ships... Maybe someone can find it...

It's written in the order receipt:

You've made a purchase on Google Play. You will not be charged until your order has shipped.

Ups is also causing a mess , I orderd couple of items from amazon and it said out for delivery since November 29th and I still haven't gotten it. Ups is really backed up due to this holiday rush,they delivered one of my packages at 8:45pm yesterday. so don't expect ups to ship it in 2 day's

In the same boat as a lot of people here. UPS Choice sent me an email notification that my Nexus 4 would be delivered last Monday between 12:15 and 4pm. I get home and no delivery. Then I checked on UPS using the tracking number and it just says shipping label created. Someone jumped the gun here (either google or UPS). Luckily I'm not in a huge hurry to get this phone, but I payed for 2-day shipping. And when they charge my card and say it's shipped (and even give me a delivery date which was missed by 2 days and counting now), I expect it to happen. Has anyone been able to get the shipping refunded?
Same thing happened to me. I got all excited when I got the alert from UPS Choice, phones never arrived.

It's a bummer because a guy on CraigsList offered to swap my extra Nexus I ordered for a 32gb iPhone 5. That would have been an easy sell.

It's an automated system. Google printed the label early (probably to block cancellations). Not sure why so many people in the thread are freaking out, the orders aren't lost. It will probably end up working in our favor for free shipping since they didn't get delivered within 2 days of charging our cards.

I personally had no expectation of receiving my phone yesterday or today even though my phone was marked shipped friday, due to the lack of tracking updates. I also wasn't expecting the phone for 1-2 weeks like it clearly stated at the time of purchase. This is more like a bonus to me, rather than an issue like so many are making it out to be.
That's a shady thing to do. If you are going to charge me for 2 day shipping, it should arrive in the stated time. Period.

Oh, I am not freaking out, I know the orders aren't lost and no one has mentioned that. Google is either incompetent or shady when it comes to fulfilling orders. Period.

Did you bother to read any of the last 5-10 pages?

Who knows their reason for doing it, maybe a truck got robbed by the son's of anarchy... It's all speculation. I'm also not advocating it was the right way to handle it but, the bottom line is it will most likely result in an error in your favor. I at least am very confident it will be.

Oh and there are plenty of people posting in the thread posting about their contact with UPS and Google about concern about their shipment.

I just checked the "Live Chat" section of the tracking information and earlier this evening, it was still saying the delivery was today, Tuesday 12/4/12.

However, a few minutes ago, it was updated and now says;

Shipment Progress:
Billing information received

Scheduled Delivery:
Friday, 12/07/2012
