I'm waiting for the one with LTE. :x Sucks though, this would've been great otherwise.

may not see a lte nexus unless one of the carrier's pick it up. lte is restricted by the fcc.

Motorola onto the next nexus?! YUCK!... Lg's still doing it's thing do not make the same mistake from the the past when Google decided to drop HTC from making anymore nexus devices, being that in my opinion that OG nexus was the best ever built 'till now. I would hate to see a "Droid" nexus Eww.

If you've ever seen the Moto X, you would know Motorola isn't just capable of making "Droid" devices. Either way, Google has a strong influence in the design of the Nexus phone. Yes, the Nexus 4 was based on the Optimus G, but it still strongly resembled the Galaxy Nexus, unlike the Optimus G.
Google also has a strong influence in the specs of the Nexus, so you wouldn't get the usual Motorola X8 chip that's in the Moto X and new Droids because it wouldn't be an upgrade from the current Nexus 4. You would probably see something like the Snapdragon 800 (maybe a dual core version), but with Motorola's dedicated cores. Dual core Krait 400 at 1.9-2.2 GHz and the dedicated cores with Adreno 330 running a 1080p display would be an absolute dream.
With the same design theme as the Moto X, maybe just a little bit thinner and a bit more bezel for the nice Nexus notification light at the bottom of the display, plus the usual Google Play subsidizing making is sub-$400, and I would buy that in an instant if it played nice with Verizon's network.

I disagree. this is a fragile glass phone with no SD Card. no removable battery. battery life not great and no LTE so why do you shut the F up sniper1087

It was the best phone out there for the money at $300-350, and it was made even more of a deal at $200-250. I got my Optimus L9 for $200 just 3 months ago, and the Nexus 4 is literally at LEAST 4 times better than it in every single way. I don't care for removable batteries or expandable storage because I'm a pretty average user, so battery life isn't much of an issue, and I keep most of my stuff in the cloud, so I rarely have over 4 GB of storage taken up.

Berzerk...How the hell do you think I feel since I got my L9? This is heartbreaking and I am like a huge fan of LG now because I learned to love my little quirky L9..... :'( ... Plus my mom has an Optimus G and I love the damn phone. I surely think LG is undermined and underrated in the mobile market space. I mean to this day, that phone still can kick ass.

no surprise an average response from an an average user

Average response from an average internet big boy.
Sadly for you, "average" users exist. What's average for you may not be average for the rest of the world, bubble boy. Not everybody abuses their network and streams 10GB of pr0n on a weekly basis, much less save the movies in their phones.
Now, now, I'm dying to know which other $200 off-contract phone you would buy above this; bear in mind that it should have all those features you just stated, plus it should stand side by side with the Nexus 4 performance-wise. This phone is still great when you consider all its offerings FOR THE PRICE, compared to the competition that prices everything just because of their brand name.
Well, who am I kidding? It's your opinion although nobody's telling you to "shut the F up" on the internet.

8 GB model is not worth, atleast 16 GB is good.

One of the best Android phone if it's not the best. Hope next nexus made LG again .

16GB will sell out too, Google is clearing stock. Got mine just in time, great price and if this sale lasts for just a week re-sale value won't drop from last week's, so I look forward selling it IF the N5 is based on the LG G2.

I would never buy a phone with 8 gigs and no expansion. Full on retarded... I thought the 16 is too low to. Love the phone, hate stock android though

With those with limited data plans it is in fact way too low. Those will unlimited have could services ie google music, drop box, Google drive, Google plus, even you tube to store there files on the cloud and stream anytime. Now that aio is launching nationwide you get att's 4glte network for a great price with unlimited everything.

You're not getting LTE speeds though. The LTE speeds are throttled to 8Mbps. Respectable, but I was getting that on my T-Mobile G2 running on HSPA+14.4 almost three years ago.

T mobile is trash anywhere out of cities. Here in central pa only 2g in most areas. There are faster options with limited data who cares. 8mbps is fast enough for me when I have good coverage at low price.
