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.

Quote from d_crome View Post :
If Google were as bright as they claim to be they'd:

- Limit purchase quantities to 2 phones per IP address.
- Allow people to enroll to purchase the phone and they get their order fulfilled when it comes into the warehouse.

Seriously people - it's not f@cking rocket science.

The sad part - actual rocket scientists work at Google.

And along comes Tor.

It's a little hard to believe that they learned NOTHING from the first time this happened.

Already intermittently showing oos for the 8gb... Gives "Due to high demand, your order could not be processed. Please try again later." even if you do manage to add it to cart.

WOW
