The LG Nexus 4 has made its way out and it has been very popular. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus came before it; however you might not want to rule it out. But which of the two devices is the best?

If you hold the devices side by side then you can see that it has the more substantial looks and this is something that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus never had. However the LG Nexus 4 has a back that is designed in glass and this could make it easier to break.

The screens are different as the LG Nexus 4 comes with the True HD IPS and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus comes with the Super AMOLED screen. The IPS display could take some getting used to and it doesn’t have the colours of the blacks, which are deep, on the Super AMOLED display. It does however come out tops in sunlight.

The LG Nexus 4 is the fastest of the two devices, but the Samsung Galaxy Nexus does get better with recent updates.
