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)
8GB: Ships in 8 - 9 weeks (Update 12/1: SOLD OUT)

I just got one of each... I sat a large stone on my enter key after tabbing to the "Proceed" button. It took over 15 minutes. I saw no place to enter the free shipping code though.

I just got an 8GB (used Free Mouse Auto Clicker and just left it on the proceed button in 1/2 second intervals). Took about 25 minutes. I'm assuming the don't charge til it ships?

Those who are still trying to grab one, I recommend using IE and keeping the 'Enter' key pressed after pressing the Proceed button(even though it is grayed out).

Have some patience and you will eventually get to the check out page. Good luck!

Yup. Charged right when my order was placed a few minutes ago for the 8 GB model.

Also, a $1 charge that will be refunded for the Google Wallet setup to ensure my CC info was legit haha

I'm replying to people who actually think I'm "wrong" because their purchase went through. Yay, your purchase of a place in line went through. I'm happy for you.
I got mine the 1st 10 seconds it was released and paid for my 2 8gb, but now I want the 16 gb since it ships alot faster. I actually want to use the phone, not resell it.

Just got it guys, it's still working (no troll, for reals)

Once it's in your cart, keep hitting the tab button until "proceed" is selected, then hold enter for awhile..

Then you'll see a blue spinning circle, and a Google Wallet popup window opens for checkout, asking for billing address and shipping info.

WOOO!

The best advice so far. This worked for me. Thank you for the input.

Exactly even though the conformation email states: "You've made a purchase on Google Play. You will not be charged until your order has shipped."
