Google cuts Nexus 4 price by $100, now starting at $199 on Google Play

0. phoneArena 27 Aug 2013, 20:41 posted on

The Google Nexus 4 was already one of the best deals available on its unlocked pricing, but a new price drop has brought it to the point where you might pick one up on impulse to be a backup device and no one would say anything. Google has just cut the price of the Nexus 4 by $100, so now you can get an 8GB Nexus 4 unlocked for just $199 on Google Play...

Wow, that makes it pretty darn hard to pass up as a main or replacement phone nib.
I want one as a bu myself.

Agreed, in NZ (little country beside Australia) the 16GB Nexus 4 is NZ$699 (about US$550 or AU$600), that's more than double, I could :(

Oops, I was checking the price of flying to Aus and the edit timer timed out.
I could fly to Aus, buy it and back and save about $100-50 haha (not including hotel, so if I slept at the airport or a mates place)

Yeah man me too.... For $200 this is the best thing we can get. I also hope google play worked here because India is one of the fastest growing mobile market.

There is only one problem with this price cut and that's resale value.

With only 8GB of storage? That isn't a deal.

It's a deal only if the "thing" has Apple logo for you to start foaming at mouth (your statement) and start digging ground also. Then even 4GB would be great.

For someone like me who heavily relies on cloud storage, I don't mind the 8GB of internal storage. It's still a great deal!

I went to T-Mobile looking at the nexus4 ..its the most underrated phone and the nexus 5 is coming this time with 4g LTE

35. PeaceB (Posts: 14; Member since: 22 Nov 2012)


FYI you can use T-mo LTE on Nexus4
I'm getting LTE in NYC, it also works anywhere T-mo have LTE deployed.

51. Shatter (Posts: 1766; Member since: 29 May 2013)


No you can't T-Mobile uses the same LTE band as at&t. If it says LTE it is incorrect.

53. Galen20K (Posts: 504; Member since: 26 Dec 2008)


Yes you can, I use LTE on my Nexus 4(in addition to my htc One). It's almost universally known that the N4 with a hack or right baseband can access AWS LTE which is what T-Mobile uses.

NIB for 200? If I didn't already have this phone I would buy it in an instant. That is a steal. You can't even get a NIB s3 for under 300 and it is older than the nexus 4.

I wouldn't really hold my breath of I were you about another Nexus on Verizon. At least not until their CDMA network is fully decommissioned which won't be for a while.

The Nexus 5 could use the Qualcomm RF360 front end solution which would allow it to work on virtually any network. That includes all (2G/3G/LTE) networks worldwide, including cdma networks.
