Google Nexus 4: Specifications and Review

January 17th, 2013 by freshersbeat Leave a reply »

Google bombed the smartphone market when it announced it’s latest flagship smartphone, the Nexus 4. Even with the top-of-the-line specifications, Google priced the device at a mere $299 in the US for an unlocked 8GB version while the 16GB version was priced at $350. The viral effect of the pricing was seen at the time of launch of the Nexus 4, when it went out of stock within minutes of being launched and since then, LG and Google have been struggling to get the smartphone in-stock again.
The Google Nexus 4 comes with beautiful 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus display with a resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels which amounts to 317 pixels per inch (ppi) and blows away even the iPhone 5?s Retina display. The smartphone is powered by a 1.5GHz Quad-core Qualcom Snapdragron processor, Adreno 320GPU and 2GB of RAM. The raw power under the hood of the Nexus 4 is enough to blow the competition out of water and provide the best Android experience you can get till date.

The Nexus 4 houses an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash at the back which is nothing to brag about, but takes some decent pictures nonetheless. The front of the Nexus 4 also gets a 1.3 megapixel VGA camera which can be used for video calling. The phone comes with 8GB or 16GB storage options with no expandable storage option which is a bit of a downer as the storage space will surely be a concern, especially if you end up buying the 8GB version.

The Google Nexus 4 gets a 2,100 mAh battery which does a fairly decent job and the phone can easily last through a full day of usage. Another bummer with the Nexus 4 is the fact that it lacks 4G LTE connectivity which could be a deal breaker for some. Now, the price at which the Nexus 4 comes is just unbelievable, which is less than half the price at which it’s rivals like the Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 retail in the US. Wait till we come out with our detailed review of the Nexus 4 and see if it really lives up to the hype.
