Comment: phone is a 5 start ph forget about LTE not all countries have the network not even in the US have full coverage so the ph have best specs + affordable price lol waiting 2 kick my iphone 4S and get my nexus 4
Good: Cheap and good. I like getting it straight from Google and removing middle men.
Bad: Storage. Just a little SD card slot is all it needs
Comment: One note about the storage problem. With Google Play Music about to launch in the UK, and lots of cloud storage for photos/videos I think I can live with 16 GB. I guess I'd keep a chunk of music on there and then for occasions where I'd like to listen to an album I left behind I can stream it.
Of course I'd rather not have to worry about juggling my files around but the price warrants the effort.
Comment: The best phone ever!!
Good: speed resolution new anroid 2Gb system mem
Bad: short back mem need more
Comment: I would like that phone.
Good: fast, great hardware, no network gubbins, good ips screen, etc
Bad: no expandable memory, no removable battery. going by the LG optimus g, poor battery life if quad core power is used.
Comment: Mixed feelings really. There's a lot that's right about this phone. Great hardware, beefy processor, lots of ram, good ips screen. I'd imagine that it will be fantastic for gaming. Oh and the price, it's almost half that of an iPhone 5 16gb. I'd imagine Apple are firing up the Lawyers as I type, because they're going to have a tough time competing without using some extreme sueing-fu.
But, no expandable memory. So that's going to limit the amount of swanky HD android games greatly, as games like Asphalt 7, or Modern Combat, take up between 1 and 2 gigs of space. That's going to limit it's usefulness as a music player, or a camera.
No expandable battery either. So, that means no don't-argue-with-me-phone turning off, no expanded batteries, no second battery in your wallet.
Plus if the LG Optimus G is anything to go by (it's roughly the same hardware) quad core processing power will kill the battery quicky.
Good: Screen, Power Price!
Bad: No expandable Memory or 4G
Comment: Excellent Phone. If not, the Best Phone!!
Good: Price, Hardware, Features
Bad: There's no 32GB version
Comment: Looks like a nice substitute for my HTC Desire :)
Good: Almost everything.
Bad: Non-removable battery, no memory expansion.
Comment: I have the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and a spare battery, which I need when I'm out all day using maps etc. The non-removable battery on the Nexus 4 is a deal-breaker for me. I can live with the fixed memory though.
Good: Almost everything
Bad: Huge bezel, no memory expansion, no removable battery, no 4g
Comment: But a good deal.
Good: almost everything
Bad: no expandable storage, cant remove battery
Comment: Absolutly phenominal piece of kit especially for the price, bye bye iphone, apple just can't compete anymore haha
