LG Nexus 4 officially announced
 
LG Nexus 4 - worst kept secret in tech.

Spec looks fair to middling.

Decent chip, screen and camera. NFC but no LTE. only 8GB and 16GB options (no SD card slot)

But the price :eek:

very high spec for the price !!!! 239 for the 8gb and 279 for the 16GB

For the money that is actually fantastic to be fair

That was my point. Its not a great leap in spec (similar to the S3 ?) but its almost half the price :eek:

would be interested to see a side-by-side spec comparison against the S3.

swordman 29-10-2012 17:30

Even if not quite there with the s3 (only maybe!) at say 100 - 140 quid cheaper worth a very serious look indeed.

My kids are due upgrades in time for christmas. They had said they wanted S3's but I may try and lead them into the Nexus way :)

Looks very similar to the Galaxy Nexus. No physical buttons on the front - which is great !

Thanks.

Really tempted to get this.

KieranDS 29-10-2012 17:48

Gee, those prices are great! I thought the 16gb model would be 399, so very pleasantly surprised.

MassiveDynamics 29-10-2012 18:12

The 16Gb version looks like a real bargain - or other phones are way overpriced!

Maybe it's time to upgrade my Galaxy SII, the wireless charging looks interesting.

mtj 29-10-2012 18:12

Honestly, I was happy enough to pay the leaked 389. Very nice indeed.

swordman 29-10-2012 18:14

It really is a great price I wonder what knock on effects this will have also

This makes the spec look very good indeed.......

Seems to beat the S3 on many counts. Only the lack of SD support and no LTE as the downsides.

lack of SD im already used to, and I live in the countryside so LTE missing is no great loss either :)

KieranDS 29-10-2012 18:17

I'm gonna sell my 4S and buy one.
Does it use micro sim or normal size?

Samsung share price may take a big hit immediately, it's top end market share may take a hit in the run up to Christmas.

Nexus phones dont have sd card support which is the only bummer.

Of course you meant sim so I will shut up :o

fluffed 29-10-2012 18:24

Really a cracking price, not in the market for a new phone for 9 months, but if Google keep up this pricing I may be swapping to the 'sim only - buying handset' route again.

That the US s3 mind not UK quad core

Yes but the Nexus 4 is also quad core ......

It certainly could tempt a few waverers. Top spec for low cost. There certainly doesnt seem to be that much difference between it and the S3 for the price difference involved.

is the UK S3 LTE version quad core ? I thought that was the whole issue .... that the quad core chips werent LTE capable yet ? hence the US version only being the dual core.

I'm really surprised at the price of this phone.

Zack06 29-10-2012 18:48

Google is REALLY playing hard ball here. Apple must be terrified. I'm selling my Galaxy Nexus for a Nexus 4 definitely. 279 is an incredible price for such a high end device.

No thats what I meant the comparison chart was US s3 dual core, quad LTE still not capable in US yet but about to change soon I believe. UK s3 LTE is quad core yes.

Had a good look at these phones and s3 is a bit better in my opinion but whether it is 100 - 150 better is certainly up for debate.
