I made a short list of
Nexus 4 vs (ATT)Optimus G

Nexus 4 Pros
350 price
wireless chraging
Nexus OS
Narrower
Lighter
Unlocked
Longer Battery
(Faster?)

Optimus G Pros
Form Factor ( My Opinion)
Looks Better ( My Opinion)
Shorter
Thiner
MircoSDcard slot
16GB Card
No OnScreen buttons
LTE

Cant decide which one i want if there are any Pros i missed, please comment

Definitely the Optimus g :)
Better design, solid build etc

But if you think that software updates (after jellybean) is important , then I have nothing to say but to let you pick nexus 4 :)

Optimus G has a 13mp camera sensor, and not to mention the support for more video codecs like DivX
But the price of the nexus, yep, thats the decider

Video codecs are app easy fix
and
AT&T Optimus G only has 8MP camera.
I left out all the same specs they shared like
CPU & Ram
Gorilla Glass2 Front & Back
4.7in LCD Screen
1.3MP Front & 8MP Rear
WiFi Direct, NFC, MHL
Battery
16GB Internal Storage

app fix for running videos, but you wont get hardware decoding for certain formats, you will have to do soft decoding, which takes more battery

For me, it's price and Google updates without bloatware. LG has stepped it up on both fronts though.

Definitely not :) I've corrected that - it is 400 euro for the 16 gig one. Thanks for the catch!

I am looking to pair it to the Walmart/Tmobile $30 a month plan (100 minutes and 5GB of 4G data). I have to wait a few months until my balance drops on my Moto Triumph with Virgin so I can run both devices in parallel.
