Good: its android vanilla flavour, power house and its not an Iphone
Bad: Can't think of anything at that price

400 for a S3?
270 for nexus 4?
Answer hell yes
This will be my next phone and will switch to giffgaff as O2 have P****** me off with there unstable network.
Comment: I'm kind of stuck at the moment, should I buy this or the Nexus 7?
Good: FASTER THAN S3 AND LONGEST BATTERY, VALUE FOR MONEY, AND ITS FROM GOOGLE
Bad: NOTHING REALLY , EVEN IPHONE DOESN'T DO INTERCHANGABLE BATTERY
Comment: FASTER THAN S3 AND LONGEST BATTERY, VALUE FOR MONEY, AND ITS FROM GOOGLE, BRILLIANT
Good: one of the best android screens, jellybean and this price!!
Bad: struggling to think at this price!
Comment: better screen than most android phones, faster than the S3- easy choice for me!
Good: specs price
Bad: not very colourful case:)
Comment: thanks google- going for this rather than an s3 (and 4g I decided I don't need- not until it becomes a lot cheaper!)
Good: For the asking price, the phone is summed up by one word: Awesome!!!
Bad: More storage space will be welcome
Comment: Lets be honest for £280 for the 16GB model this phone can't go wrong.
Yeah fair enough it doesn't have 4G but how many people use 4G? I think people just don't like the fact that others are going to get a phone that rival their S3s and Iphone 5s for about have the price so they are slamming it in every way possible.
The innovation here is PRICE people, if other manufacturer's follow suit we might be heading back in into the good old days of 12-months contracts. Just something for everybody to think about. Let's support the cause.
Comment: I think it sounds great for the price and surely the problem with the non expandable memory can be solved simply by getting dropbox? simple...
Good: Best value
Bad: No removable battery, no radio, no 4G
Comment: It seems the no SD and no removable battery trend from Apple is catching on. But for that price there have to be some tradeoffs and luckily there are no major ones.
Good: The power and memory
Bad: not enough storage space to actually be of any use.
Comment: Some people like to use their phones as an mp3 player. Some people like to have audiobooks on there. Some people like to use their phones as a camera. All these uses need a certain amount of memory for storing the relevant files. This phone doesn't even have enough memory to keep a decent selection of apps. If I owned this phone I would need to have a second phone. In fact at present I am actually doing that anyway. I have a 16GB phone so I must have an additional 32 GB phone so that I can actually do things with it. I want a nexus phone so much. It is a shame that Google evidently don't want me.
Comment: This is my next phone! Thats all there is to say! The only Q is how to get the best deal without being ripped of by 02
