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.

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 ordered a phone on the 27th. The date on my order in the Play store just changed to December 12. Does that mean anything? Status is still pending.

Ok. Just cancelled my order from 12/08 and reordered a 16GB today. Will update.
x 2. Except that I canceled the original 11/27 order and reordered last night. I'm hoping for faster shipping now...i figure it cant get much worse than it was with the original order. Big Grin At least this time I see a pending charge on the CC, as opposed to last time when there was nothing.

Me too. When I click the "info" link it still says the original date. Just double-checked and I have a new temporary authorization on my CC (dated 12/11).

Edit: shipped this morning 12/12. (Ordered 11/27 4:58pm PST)

Ordered one (16gb) on 11/27, and cancelled on 12/7.
Ordered another one 12/7 again, and cancelled 12/11.
Ordered another one 12/11 around 2pm PST along with the bumper in the same order. Just got an email saying both shipped with UPS tracking number. Will see if the tracking gets updated later today.

Not sure if it was the bumper that got my order shipped.

How did you cancel the first two orders. I tried to cancel an order from the 27th multiple times through their online link, and called them once and the response has been that it is too late and that I should refuse delivery.

It seems that you can buy one from the retailers but the price is higher than that in the Google Play.

Interesting, I don't know why they won't cancel mine then, my first cancellation request was sent less than 2 hours after the order. Oh well, I can refuse delivery. The order says 1-2 weeks and it still hasn't shipped though, its a good thing I'm not waiting on it.

My 12/11(1am) order shipped. It was a chaos.

11/27 - Ordered Two 16GB's, but Cancelled 10 days later after seeing all those masses
12/7 - After seeing some 12/5 orders being shipped, Ordered One 16GB
12/11 - Ordered One More 16GB after seeing 12/10 being shipped. (Needed Two Anyways)

And just now, I received a shipping confirmation for 12/11 order. No words on 12/7 order yet.
The package is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow.

Google seriously needs to do something about their order processing.

Soooo I traded a Nexus 4 for an iPhone 5 on CraigsList. I went to flip the iPhone on Craigslist. Met the guy in a busy parking lot. Everything seemed fine until he flashed his gun at me and told me not to follow him. He then ran, iPhone in hand. I followed him in my car while I called the cops, until he flashed it at me again and I decided to stop pursuing him.

Just thought I would share this story with you guys. BE CAREFUL ON CRAIGSLIST! I know a lot of people frown upon reselling for profit, but this is just one of the many risks of reselling. You take the good with the bad.
i always shoot a pic of the the potential buyer with my fon camera from across the street
