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

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.

I believe Amazon charges an 8% flat fee for selling consumer electronics. Ebay only charges 5% for Buy It Now plus I believe Paypal charges 3% so it works out to be about the same.

I just received email from google regarding my order on 11/27 @ 6:23PM EST. It seems like they didn't admit their mess up with shipping

"Orders are shipped based on the estimate in your order confirmation email. Once an order has been processed you'll receive a second ship confirmation email with your tracking number. It may take 24 hours for the package tracking to return any information for your tracking number.

If you have not received a package tracking number after the time quoted in your order confirmation email, please let us know.

According to our records, your order should ship by the evening of December 19.

Neuxs 4 backorders: Please note that the above date is based on typical shipment processing and does not apply to Nexus 4 backorders. Nexus 4 backorders are being delivered based on the order in which they were received. If you receive a shipping confirmation email, then you will be able to track your delivery"

I emailed Google Support about my order, and basically asked why mine hasn't been shipped, while others who ordered recently have already been shipped. And this was their reply:

Man, I hate UPS during the holidays.

I got the 'phantom delivery' today. I was home all afternoon and no knock at my door. I periodically checked tracking and it was still 'out for delivery'.

Around 6pm, I checked tracking and it was listed as 'attempted but customer not home' at 5:09pm when I was sitting my living room. However, there was no notice on my door. Also, since I'm in an apartment complex, they normally put the notice on the door and drop it at the office.

That means the UPS guy never even stopped at the complex and just headed back to the warehouse.

And since it is Friday, I won't be able to get it until Monday. I wonder if I can get my shipping refunded?

Lying about attempted deliveries is one of my pet peeves and UPS does it a LOT during the holidays so that they don't have to refund shipping fees when they miss their deadlines.

All of you trolls just convinced me to place another order. I've been pretty patient...until now.
Update.....Well, that is interesting. My second order from yesterday is marked shipped and has a tracking number already (but isn't trackable yet). Order from the 27th is still pending.

Don't worry about that email. I received same emailed yesterday. I checked my email this morning and it will delivery on 12/10, which way ahead of schedule. Just ignore that email and ask them for tracking number. Based on what I know, they will send you order confirmation email and tracking email right after that. I just push them little harder. By the way, my order is on 11/27
