At the same time they introduced the Google Nexus 10, Google introduced their successor in the phone family, the Google Nexus 4. This phone has been made with collaboration with LG and it deserves to be named, a great phone. When compared to its predecessors it has a lot to offer and as the Google Nexus 10 it is made so that it will be used as a benchmark for how future phones should look like and to push developers to make new software in that manner.
The phone has a thin black bezel and is made as a look alike to LG’s flagship, the Optimus G. As it shares a lot of commonalities with the Optimus G it has the same size measuring 4.7 inch, which is an IPS Plus True HD screen, with resolution of 1280×768 pixels. This screen type has been proclaimed as a leader among screens with a crystal clear picture, great viewing angles and great color saturation. On top of this the screen is protected by a Gorilla Glass 2 film.
The back of the phone is covered by a scratch resistant glass and beneath it is a patterned back plate that is not removable. Underneath this plate hides a 2100mAh battery that is quite small for this type of specs.
And now the great specs that are shared with the Optimus G. The phone is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset and the processors are clocked at 1.5GHz. This is accompanied by an Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB RAM. It will come in 8GB and 16GB versions. On the back of the phone you will find an 8MP camera, which now has a lot of new functions, like the spherical panorama and native HDR image taking.
Nexus 4 comes with Android 4.2 operating system. The phone can already be purchased online on Google’s Play Store. The most amazing thing is the price tag that goes with it. The 8GB version will set you back $299 and the 16GB one $349, which is a steal when compared to the competition.
