Google's Nexus smartphones have always set the standard when it comes to a pure Google experience. Although previous Nexus handsets were not upto the mark. But the Nexus handsets released now are filled with some cool and awesome features which make them a good competitors to other high end smartphones.
Design And Build:
Size wise, the Nexus 4 comes in at 133.9 x 68.7 x 9.1 mm dimension which means it is similar to its predecessor. But it is far more stunning to look at and hold. The candy bar design of the phone makes it really easy to grasp with one hand. The front is all glass in piano black. Extra tough too thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass 2. At 139g, the Nexus 4 isn't the lightest handset but it's just about solid enough. Another element worth pointing out here is the way the phone curves at the sides, from the main panel into the bezel. It seems to make the screen look even more realistic and beautiful. It's one of those things you really have to experience to appreciate. Round the edges, you'll find the usual adornments. A 3.5mm headphone jack on top, volume rocker and micro SIM tray on the left, micro USB port plus a few dubious screws on the bottom, and a perfectly placed lock and power button on the upper right hand side.
For the image snapping capabilities, the Nexus 4 comes with two cameras, an 8MP around the back and a 1.3MP snapper on the front. The camera is super quick to load. From the home screen it takes just a second to shoot. It can also be fired up very quickly from the lock screen by swiping to the camera symbol. It won't blow your socks off but as long as you don't go expecting it a miniature DSLR, you'll not be disappointed.
The screen is invisible when off – but when it lights up, you're treated to 4.7-inches of True HD IPS Plus beauty. That's 768 x 1280 pixels with a pixel density of 318. It's HD display ventures as one of the best ever seen in the handset.
With the 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset Google Nexus 4 is a good performer. It is one of the most responsive handset in the market. Google Nexus 4 is far more better and faster than it's predecessors.
Power On It:
The battery on the Nexus 4 is powerful and supports a day of moderate to heavy usage in between charges. With 2100 mAh it gives upto 390 hrs of standby and about 15 hrs of talktime.
All in all the LG Google Nexus 4 is a well performing phone which is loaded with amazing features and worth the buy. For high end usage the 16GB version of Nexus 4 would be better than the Google Nexus 4 8GB .
