I recently got my hands on the LG Nexus 4 and have a quick review on the next Google phone coming our way. One of the first things that I noticed was the fact that the materials, along with the quality of the build, are amazing. The back and front of the device is made of Gorilla Glass 2 and there is a rubber band that separates the glass and makes the device a pleasure to hold. The phone feels solid and it is the first ever Android device that actually looks as though it has had passion behind the design.
LG Nexus 4 review (quickie)
The front of the LG Nexus 4 is still minimal and doesn’t have branding or logos. The back of the handset has the Nexus logo and LG logo. It is one of the most stunning devices seen on the market. In many light conditions the back of the device is black, while in others it does have a sparkly look to it.
While the device that was reviewed didn’t have the final software on it, there were some issues that were noticed. These included clock screen widgets that were not working. On the clock there is now a stopwatch and there is also a timer, and the design is great too for these.
The device does lack LTE and SD card support, so maybe it’s not being aimed at everyone. However the LG Nexus 4 is very well made and it is very fast. If you can do without LTE then you will have one of the most stunning looking handsets out there.
It is refreshing to see a Nexus device focus so heavily on design for one, pack a camera above 5-megapixels and feature a price tag that will have you looking twice to make sure you read it right. The LG Nexus 4 is truly a gamechanger.
