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

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)

No, it's a Nexus phone, so no MicroSD.

is this like a mini nexus 7 sort of like the itouch? not a phone correct?
This is a phone, not a tablet/MP3 player.


As for people sitting on the fence, I'll give my impressions (I was lucky enough to actually get mine).

The screen is great. It's not over-saturated, so if you like how ridiculously colorful the galaxy nexus is, this one won't be as intense, but personally I think it looks better.

There were a lot of worries about battery life, but after playing with my for most of the day the last few days, I still almost always have battery left at the end of the day. Considering I'm using the phone like crazy because I just got it, that's pretty good.

The curved edges of the screen sound gimmicky, but it's actually really nice for swiping left and right. Overall, the phone feels pretty good in my hand (although I have small hands, so it's occasionally hard to reach something, but I'll probably get used to that). It's slim and light, so the size isn't a problem for me at all.

No micro-sd slot sounds like it could be an issue for some, but I go the 8gb and I doubt I'll ever have an issue. My music is all stored in the cloud on Google Music, and if I take a ridiculous amount of pictures/video I'll just upload them all somewhere and not worry about it. Either way, I doubt I'll have a serious need for more space. The SD slot would be nice, but unless you reallllllly think you'll need that extra space, it probably shouldn't be a deal-breaker.

Good luck gettin' your N4's, guys Smilie

God wish me luck to process my order..
Apple products are for rich people, You know that by now?

I don't understand the whole glass back thing either. Is it just for looks?
Seems like some sort of scam because of course your going to drop it once.

:sigh:, the answers to these questions are available and some people are just too lazy to read up and find them. The LTE chip in the phone is fully functional, however necessary hardware to accompany it is MISSING. There is no signal amplifier or filter installed. The only reason the modem was left in there is because the phone is based on the LG Optimum G, and it would've been cost prohibitive to produce the same exact chipset with the modem removed. But the chip was never designed to work. Yes, it can be enabled, and yes, it will work in areas with strong signals. But it will not work reliably, long term, ever, with any carrier.

If you're happy getting LTE in bits and spurts and the shitty battery life that goes with having that chip active, by all means, go nuts.

Any of u that purchase on the first clusterfudge! round... What was the shipping , tax break down... And do they increase shipping if u order more then one... Trying to narrow the cost for a pair + bumpers..

Would the bumpers really make a difference ??

I was leaning on waiting for the Nexus 5 next year.. maybe Google would have learn by then that either a 32GB or a 8GB with SDCard slot are a must period...

I got one first round and it was 13.99 for shipping and 24.84 tax. I would say pass on the bumpers since cases are becoming available now from other companies.

Also, how would they "learn" that lesson when the phone is selling so well without it?
