Now before everyone pulls the trigger as to this is the wrong place... I am here to discuss, not the phone, but something else.
So the LG neXus 4 was announced yesterday. And why has it got me interested.
Let's start with Specs:
- 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chip with quad core Krait CPUs
- 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS Plus
- 1280 x 768p resolution
- 8MP primary camera, 1.3MP HD webcam
- 2GB RAM
- 8GB or 16GB internal memory
- NFC, wireless charging
- 2100mAh lithium-polymer battery
- Android Jelly Bean v4.2
And then, the biggest reason, the price.
16GB for 350$ and that comes to 20,000k in INR. HOW COOL IS THAT!
Do I even need to mention 8gig's price? (it's is 300$ BTW)
Now this is what I call competitive marketing.
And it doesn't end there, it is carrier unlocked by default so all I need to do is but the phone, log in with the Google account and that's it. Also, I can for the first time, buy it in India directly from Google PlayStore. This is confirmed by LG.

This phone is seriously a possibility for me being a Galaxy Nexus owner (previous Focus owner). The price is definitely tempting. And let's not mention that Google announced concrete details about price and availability and flooded the media with info minutes before the WP8 announcement. And while I'm rooting for WP8, I thought their announcement was more exciting and effective. I am however up for an upgrade so I might use my upgrade and sell my current Galaxy Nexus in oder for me to get both. I love tech toys

Great specs but I have a feeling it's going to be a year and a half before devs really start taking advantage of quad core CPUs and 2GB of RAM. It's great for people looking to future proof their phone but that also means it's going to be a while before they can take advantage of all that great hardware. Granted, those specs will be outclassed in a year.

No LTE and it has Android. Those are the two main issues with the phone. I just sold my Galaxy Nexus and can't wait to get back to WP. The quick availability and pricing is nice, but the reason they can do that is because they are bypassing the carriers. In the states, AT&T is the holdup on the announcement of the Lumia 920.

The Nexus 4 is priced really competitively. I'm sure that's cheaper than the 8S/820 phones will be off contract. It's creating a lot of buzz. It's almost an impulse purchase for a lot of people. The margins must be very small...

Google didn't just undercut the 8X, or Lumia 920, or both. It undercut the entire smartphone industry with the unlocked price on the Nexus 4. While it might not be such a big deal in the US where the contract price is nothing special, in other countries it is absolutely huge. It is undoubtedly the best Android device, and the best overall device in its price range and above. Unless you have decided on iOS or Windows Phone for a particular reason, I'd recommend it.

And seriously, from day one, I thought specs were just mediocre of WP8. I know u all will hate me for saying this.
But I mean, i paid for this same spec a year back. 4.3" inch screen, dual core, etc etc...
NX4 feels like a natural progression. IMHO.
