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.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/s...?t=1992627

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 have a stupid question:
If I have an AT&T two-year contract without any data plan and I start using this phone, will AT&T add a plan to my account?

Thanks,
Tofu Vic, one of the few SDers without a smartphone
if it's AT&T phone, they will add data plan.

You can call AT&T and tell them to switch you to No-Data Plan before using this phone.

The Nexus 4 has hidden LTE on the frequency that T-Mobile is planning on using.
Yes, that too. Some like to look forward to promises like t-mo support for the iphone, but I live more for the moment. And for the moment, t-mobile is HSPA.

with 2-year contract?
of course, but $35 a month is very fair since they are subsidizing the note 2

I would never pay near $100 for a contract

I can't guarantee that. My dad has an unlocked international GSM phone. I put him on "Data Opt Out for Non-Smartphones" plan and he hasn't been charged.

I see 16 GB Nexus 4 are going for $580 on eBay.
Just because it's hard to get and people can't wait a few weeks? I guess a couple hundred dollars is worth a bit less to some people.

yes it does.

Only works for LTE on band 4. Which AT&T should be on band 17. From one of the articles, AT&T may use band 4 in the future.
