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.

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)

Mandatory plea for those only interested in flipping these on ebay -- some of us actually want the phone to use.

Quick FAQ --
Unlocked? Yes.
What US carriers can I use this with? T-Mo or AT&T. T-Mo recommended because 42mbps HSPA+.
Verizon, Sprint, US Cellular? No, go away.
What time is the sale in my local time?
Eastern (New York) -- 3PM, Central (Chicago) - 2PM, Mountain (Denver) - 1PM, Pacific (LA) - Noon

processor in it allows LTE...say some source..google it
Will not work on verizon's LTE....google it (needs more then software)
Quote from The_Linux_Crew View Post :
Yes, it works with Telus 4G LTE in Toronto. LTE can be activated with a sequence of characters and numbers in the dialpad.

It will likely be compatible with T-Mobile USA LTE, but not other carriers, which operate at a different band.
yep

I have a bad feeling the new orders today will result in the same situation a few weeks ago.

1) Out of stock in minutes
2) Web site crashing repeatedly
3) Random people are chosen to have their phones shipped

We shall see.
