The Nexus 4 from Google is their latest in the line of Google branded phones, this time manufactured by LG. It’s fast and lightweight. Features the amazing PhotoSphere technology, a quad-core, 3D graphics and even 2 GB of RAM. Google’s fastest phone ever. For a phone that has everything, one has to ask why Google chose to leave out the most important feature that ALL U.S. phones feature today… LTE. Why Google? Why?
The biggest selling point for the Nexus 4? It’s the FIRST Google phone that will always be up to date. No longer at the mercy of the cariers. The Nexus 4 will recieve updates directly from Google. Finally over-coming the long suffering issue of if I buy this phone will I get an upgrade? For years, Android users have suffered. One phone would have Ice Cream Sandwich while the newest is Jelly Bean and yet another still would be running Gingerbread. Yes, it has been that bad. The inconsistency of the Android eco-sphere has been it’s biggest downfall. Maybe finally that is being resolved so that Google can move the Android phone line into the forefront.
It comes in at an attractive $299 starting point, which might seem steep until you consider that it’s unlocked and contract free. Most important feature though… Google Maps.
