Google Nexus 4 16GB Reviews

90/100

"It exudes a clarity that has to be seen to be believed. Colours look beautiful, icons and text are razor sharp and everything floats perfectly. We find it hard to see how this could be beaten. When you're looking at icons on a black background (like in the app drawer), you can't even see the black, ..."

"It’s as close to perfect as I’ve seen any Android smartphone get. But the Nexus 4 falls just short of perfection due to one major omission: It’s not compatible with any LTE networks. The Nexus 4 will run on just about any other cellular network outside of LTE (GSM, UMTS, Edge, GPRS, 3G and HSPA+), w..."

"The Google Nexus 4 delivers excellent performance, the latest stock Android 4.2 OS and solid build quality, all at an unbeatable off-contract price. The lack of official LTE will be an issue for some people, but on the whole, the Nexus 4 stands among the best smartphones on the market right now."

"The rear camera has 8-megapixels and works well both indoors and outdoors and is very responsive and fast. Some indoor shots could be noisy and blurred, even with flash, but no more so than most other camera phones. The flash was harsh up close, but acceptable when over a metre away. Panorama shots ..."

"Google has also added a new Photo Sphere picture mode, which lets you take panorama photos along the vertical axis as well as the horizontal plane. Once rendered, you end up with a funky 3D view of your surroundings, which you can move around in when viewing on the phone."

"We loved making calls on the Nexus, as our friends came through loud and clear. It was static-free and neither side of the conversation had any difficulty hearing each other."

"The Nexus 4 is absolutely wonderful, but it's also vexing. Frustrating. Annoying. It's easily the best Android phone on the market right now, and has some of the most powerful software that's ever been put on a mobile phone. It's an upgrade from last year's Galaxy Nexus in every way. It's terrific —..."

"Connectivity is good — with one proviso that may or may not be significant depending on where you live and which mobile operator you use. I refer, of course, to LTE support, which is not enabled on the Nexus 4..."

"The display's high resolution makes for super-sharp images. We found it slightly sharper than the Galaxy S3 screen, which itself is pretty impressive. There's not a massive difference between the two smartphones, but text appears slightly crisper on the Google Nexus 4."

"Weighing in at 139g this isn’t a light smartphone however the Nexus 4 manages to distribute the weight in such a way that it adds to the sense that this is a smartphone that could survive day to day without instantly needing to buy a case (iPhone 5 we’re looking at you)."

80/100

"Holy hell is fast and smooth. The horsepower of the Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, the 2GB of RAM and the incredible smoothness of Project Butter within Jelly Bean just lights this thing on fire. It’s easily the best user experience of any Android we’ve ever tested. There’s just no lag anywhere in the..."

"In reality although the weights and thicknesses are practically indistinguishable, the Nexus 4 doesn’t feel quite as elegant as, say an S3 or an HTC One X. It doesn’t help that it’s made of plastic even more slippery than that found on Apple’s iPhone 3GS or that its boxier design looks less stylish."

"The speaker on the Nexus 4 is loud, but sound quality is lacking when it comes to the highest and lowest notes. We streamed Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" and the music easily filled our testing room and each chord and piano key came through clearly. Unfortunately, high notes sounded tinny and the over..."
