Google Nexus 4, análisis

 

Llega el momento de hacer balance tras estos días de prueba con el Nexus 4 y como siempre la decisión no es fácil. Google tiene ya una buena colección de equipos a su espalda; y sin embargo, lejos de notarse la presión, los de Mountain View la han...

Google Nexus 4 review: Royal road

 

It's the next-generation Nexus and this time LG has the privilege. And when Google goes "My pleasure!", they most likely mean it. The Nexus 4 aggressively undercuts competitors' pricing as it sets out to wipe the floor with most of them in terms of...

Flagship specs at a bargain ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Penta-band 3G with DC-HSPA, up to 42Mbps downlink, HSUPA up to 5.76Mbps uplink ; 4.7" 16M-color WXGA True HD IPS Plus (768 x 1280 pixels) capacitive touchscreen, Gorilla Glass 2 ; Stock...

No microSD card slot, no versions with more storage ; Mediocre display sunlight legibility ; Non user-replaceable battery ; Camera is less than stellar, no shutter key either ; No LTE support (not official anyway, and then only one band)

Top of the line chipset, an excellent screen and the latest Android version - does it get better than this? Well, if you are Google, it actually does. The Nexus 4 is a proper flagship smartphone, but with a mid-market price tag. It costs just €300/$300...

Nexus 4 review

 

Movie sequels often don't live up to the hype of the original blockbuster, but the same isn't always true of smartphones -- on the contrary, they

Beautiful and vibrant 720p display ; Very affordable price ; Pentaband HSPA ; Android 4.2 delivers new features ; Solid performance

Doesn't support LTE

It may not be the best phone on the planet, but its high-end specs, elegant build and incredibly affordable price make it worth throwing your money at.

Google Nexus 4 (Unlocked)

 

For the Android purist, only an unlocked Nexus phone will do—since carrier-subsidized Android phones are somewhat compromised, thanks to their skins, carrier modifications, and infrequent OS updates. Enter the Google Nexus 4 ($299 direct), a totally...

Attractive, minimalist design. Bright display. Fast quad-core performance. Latest Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) OS. Fast HSPA+ 42 data speeds on T-Mobile. Improved localized search results with Google Now

Slow HSPA+ 21 data speeds on AT&T. Mediocre camera and camcorder. Ineffective voice dialing. Gets warm

LG's Google Nexus 4 is a powerful unlocked smartphone with a beautiful, minimalist design, fast performance, and the latest version of Android.

Nexus 4 review

 

Getting the Nexus 4 for review was something of a treat for me. I've been anticipating the arrival of a follow-up (and upgrade) from the company's previous flagship device — the Galaxy Nexus — for...

Improved build quality ; Android 4.2 is fantastic ; Excellent price for a device of this caliber

Lacks LTE ; Screen a bit washed out ; Glass backing breaks easily

It's easily the best Android phone on the market, save for one small thing

LG Nexus 4 (T-Mobile) review

 

With its recent history of mediocre handsets, LG needs something other than the Optimus G to be its Hail Mary that can carry it to the top. Unfortunately, the Nexus 4 isn't quite it.

The competitively priced LG Nexus 4 delivers a pure and polished experience with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, it's powered by a snappy quad-core processor, and it's packed with new photo-editing and camera features.

The Nexus 4's construction is solid but uninspiring, its call volume is too low, and it lacks 4G LTE.

While the LG Nexus 4 wins on internal performance and user experience, anyone shopping for an unlocked phone should consider a comparable LTE handset first.

Review: Google Nexus 4

 

The Nexus 4, built by LG in collaboration with Google, is the best overall Android handset currently available, and it's one of the best phones...

Thoughtfully designed hardware displays a quality of finish that can compete with the best rival smartphones. Big 4.7-inch screen is crisp, detailed and beautiful. Quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM gives it power to spare. NFC and wireless charging...

No LTE connectivity means the Nexus 4 is confined to slower, older mobile networks. No micro SD card slot or expandable storage of any sort. The rear speaker isn’t very loud and doesn’t sound very good

Google Nexus 4 Review - Google's new Flagship

 

The Nexus One was a groundbreaking device. It was the defining moment that Google got serious about making both a real consumer electronic, and pitting the Android platform against the incumbent iOS. While you could make the case that the original...

Google Nexus 4 Review

 

For those wanting a pure Android experience, as Google intended, the Nexus 4 is a strong choice. The 1.5-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM make applications run quickly on an already buttery smooth OS. The Google Now and camera...
