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.

Would buy immediatelly if it would have LTE. Don't get it why the didn't put it in.
do a quick google search and you will see that the phone has been torn apart and has the hardware for LTE; albeit only for AWS which is mostly canada, but T-Mo is also launching on the same freq. besides, with hspa+42, do you really need LTE? I pull 12 mbps with my google galaxy nexus (previous version) on T-MO. not sure what I'll use the speeds for, but it's there.
Verizon will probably eventually get their own pone (like they did with the nexus) and have LTE support. this is GSM phone.

Google is limiting it to 2 phones per account. Not sure if that means two of each size or two total
