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.

If only it were available worldwide in the Play Store.
I would get it in an instant!

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 even in my country (india) the nexus 4 costs around $450. Still almost double. I wish google play worked here!
42. LetsBeHonest (Posts: 530; Member since: 04 Jun 2013)
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.

Google play store has the best deals in the tech world with the n4 and nn7

There is only one problem with this price cut and that's resale value.
3. Kishin (Posts: 199; Member since: 30 May 2013)

Nexus 5 inbound, whens the next Google Event?
12. protozeloz (Posts: 5188; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
Does that mean we *might* see the moto X 350? Or 499?

Retail price of nexus 4 in my country is around 450 dollars
15. Mxyzptlk (Posts: 2439; Member since: 21 Apr 2012)
With only 8GB of storage? That isn't a deal.
24. rusticguy (Posts: 2699; Member since: 11 Aug 2012)
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.
32. jacko1977 (Posts: 330; Member since: 11 Feb 2012)
i bet u dont even own an iphone coz if u did u know how crap they really are

It's amazing how much dumber and more annoying a person can seem when you can't show your disdain for them with a thumbs down.
49. Bootutu (Posts: 117; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
In UK the 16GB version has been slashed as well form £279 to £199
56. HASHTAG (Posts: 384; Member since: 26 Mar 2013)
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!

What's the matter mxy sent a warning to me instead of replying, don't care you can still go f yourself apple troll.
18. Galen20K (Posts: 491; Member since: 26 Dec 2008)
As Powerful as this phone is, it'll still be getting updates for at least the next two years.. Think about it.
22. GTR722 (Posts: 193; Member since: 20 Oct 2012)
CMON Google, sell the phone in Amazon just like the new NEXUS.

NOOO! I bought my Nexus 4 from the play store a month ago!
57. rite2hhh (Posts: 7; Member since: 28 Aug 2013)
i bought mine 2 weeks ago. I don't think there's anything you can do. :/
58. kevin_wsy (Posts: 29; Member since: 02 Mar 2012)
If you bought it within 15 days, Google has Price Protection policy
68. rite2hhh (Posts: 7; Member since: 28 Aug 2013)
i got it on 9th. they are providing refund for purchases on or after 12th. sheer bad luck

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: 1652; 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: 491; 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.
31. jacko1977 (Posts: 330; Member since: 11 Feb 2012)
thats why i love google they don't milk people for money and i don't mind them spying on me (thats if they even do) i got nothing to hide only worries people that as something to hide
34. TreyTreyTaylor (Posts: 262; Member since: 21 Dec 2010)
Unbelievable. I'm gonna pick some up for the family. Google is truly amazing.
36. yougotkilled1 (Posts: 165; Member since: 27 Apr 2011)
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.
37. Gsmalltheway (Posts: 129; Member since: 15 Aug 2009)
Just ordered mine. These will sell out quick! Get em while you can!
41. datsyuk (Posts: 134; Member since: 11 Jan 2012)
Moto X with same processor, $400 more haha. Can't wait til Nexus 5, I'm on Verizon so I can't any of the Nexus 4 goodness
44. Doakie (Posts: 589; Member since: 06 May 2009)
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.
60. pimpclark (Posts: 12; Member since: 27 Oct 2011)
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.
55. najariner (Posts: 24; Member since: 31 Oct 2012)
actually the nexus 4 has a quad core processor better than the x's dual core
63. OldNorseBruin (Posts: 71; Member since: 12 Mar 2013)
...and they EXPECT you to pay $575 TOP DOLLAR price for the Motorola X Mid-ranger...
