What are your thoughts on the Nexus 4...
« on: December 20, 2012, 03:52:19 PM »
Okay so I've had my N4 just over 24hrs and I love this phone, the display is fantastic, the phone feels well made and it's super fast.
The only down side is the the loudspeaker isn't great when playing music through it and at home my reception to my mobile provider isn't as good as my S2 but I can live with that...

What do you think of the Nexus 4?

Reception aside, it's the best phone I've ever seen/had!  I was with Virgin Mobile and I had a great $25 a month plan, but they are CDMA and the best phone they had with that plan was a Moto Triumph, in 2011.
This screen is truly beautiful and very responsive.  I have the 16GB version but so far, that's been plenty enough.  Well, my N7 is only the 8GB so I guess it seems like a lot to me...   But I feel like I have a top-of-line device now and I'm really enjoying it!

Reception aside, does this mean you have weak signal issues radio?

I'm loving my N4 but I too have noticed the signal isn't as strong as the signal of my S2 on the same carrier...

Well Jay, sitting here at the pc I hve zero to 1 bar but if I get up and move a few feet it gets much better.  But no, it's not any worse then VM with my Moto Triumph.

I only get a GPS signal at home (I live in the sticks) and my N4 fluctuates between 3 bars and no signal, always had full signal (four bars) with my S2.

Will have a look around see if there's a fix...

I am very happy with the Nexus 4.  There is one minor complaint I have: GPS is not as accurate when I am indoors unless I turn on Wifi (this is not true with my Galaxy Nexus), but it's how accurate it is on the road that counts. 

I purchased the Energizer 3-position (3 position, ha! -- two charging stations and a USB port) to take advantage of wireless charging.  Had to go with the 3-position model since the single position one does not appear to be available yet. I'd recommend it to anyone thinking about getting a second power adapter (for use at work for instance).

I really won't feel comfortable with the N4 until I can get an Otterbox Commuter case for it. I'm using a TPU case right now that will protect against scratches not I wouldn't trust it if the phone is dropped.

I'm pleasantly surprised with mine coming from a gNex. The battery life is a little iffy but it'll do I guess. I really like the screen and find the 16:10 ratio unusual but refreshing. It seems very fast and excellent for gaming. I probably have the same complaints as everyone else and that is I want 32gb and a 3000mah battery.
