I got mine right off the bat. Been refreshing the page every 5 mins since 8am. lol
the 16 gig is 387 with all taxes and shipping.. 2 day shipping.
Hoping that its early enough that it ships out today and arrives tommorow.
So.. I never got an email from Google about its launch.. why did we "sign up for updates" again? lol

That's too much time to spend on one product.

I was also online till about 230am last night in hopes of a early morning release.
Hey, you wierdos sit in front of iphone stores for days to get one. These things are selling out in minutes. At least I didnt have to leave the comfort of my office.
I NEED a new phone, its not just about want. Had to beat the crowds.

Once I sell my note, most likely going to pick up one. I was thinking about the note 2, but a part of me still wants a note 2. Very tough decision.

I've never stood in a crowded line for an iPhone. It still beats refreshing your computer all night since at least you'll have people to talk to in a line.

Too much time to spend on one product? So when there are people who make a long lineee sometimes camp outside a store thats not to much time?
50. bayusuputra (Posts: 949; Member since: 12 Feb 2012)
what's so difference with the iPhone.. In fact, this is the device everyone should line up for.. Not some elongated model that finally matched last year's specs..
41. rawkuss (Posts: 29; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)
Wonder if you said the same thing about the people who camped out for a couple days cheering about the Iphone 5.

Get out of here man. For somebody who trash talks Android so much you sure comment on every single freaking Android news, seriously get a life first and only then say "That's too much time to spend"
49. bayusuputra (Posts: 949; Member since: 12 Feb 2012)
at least we're spending it with some common sense (it's dirt cheap for unlock device) and in the comfort of our home in front of the computer..
Not spending days under the sun (and rain, and everything else mother nature throws) for overpriced gadget from yesteryear..
And yes, even Mother Nature has tried to warn you with the rain and stuff..

Omg am i seeing this right...lol remixfa bought a phone that has a snapdragon processor.
4. remixfa (Posts: 14251; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
its still showing that they are both in stock for me.. keep trying. the page has been wonky for the last hour or so
6. andreagaru214 (Posts: 8; Member since: 11 Jul 2011)
When you checked out did it go past the "your purchase will complete momentarily" I'm stuck on that page. Already clicked accept and buy though. Do you receive conformation right away?
8. Aeires (unregistered)
Same for me, no email notification of purchase.
14. andreagaru214 (Posts: 8; Member since: 11 Jul 2011)
I checked to see in my play account if it had successfully went through and it hadn't so I refreshed and it finally went through. I checked my bank statement to make sure.
13. Aeires (unregistered)
I'm still waiting for confirmation but I called my bank account and a debit for the amount of the phone was issued. Hopefully it was processed before they run out.
24. remixfa (Posts: 14251; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
I got confirmation right away because I clicked the order button at 1132 when I got back from making new coffee. It went in and out in like 10 seconds and had it ordered with confirmation email.
helps that I have my CC on file with google play. just tapped like 2 or 3 buttons and it was ordered.
44. Aeires (unregistered)
I refreshed at 11:35, then started the order. Took me numerous tries and at one point I wasn't sure if I had bought two phones, or none. A guy on Android Police suggested checking into your Wallet account to check and it was confirmed for a purchase of 1 phone. Having my cc on file probably helped as well.
I feel for the people who kept trying, I could tell the servers were taking massive traffic hits. I guess if someone as large as Google is having traffic issues, the popularity of this device must be massive. Gotta be a good sign for things to come in the Android camp.

I got a 16gb in my cart, did the payment with google wallet. Clicked on accept and buy right away... Still stuck since 5 minutes on "your purchase will complete momentarily"
Got charged 2bucks on my credit card by google though, so it is good news! :D
(no confirmation email yet)
12. jackhuny (Posts: 10; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
16G was in my cart but not able to checkout, now its out.
Good job google...
15. mademepror (Posts: 6; Member since: 13 Nov 2012)
11/13 Pending GOOGLE *Devices $394.75
Only took about 15min of unresponsive checkout pages and reloads.
It sold out about 1 min after I got my confirmation XD
17. RAJordao (Posts: 6; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
The confirmation page after clicking continue in the cart needs flash?
Trying to buy from an Ipad...maybe google knows and is blocking me...LOL
19. Juan_Gomez (Posts: 11; Member since: 12 Dec 2011)
You don't need flash, I ordered from a Nexus 7 which has a version of android that doesn't support flash, at least mine doesn't
20. RAJordao (Posts: 6; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
Damn it...i have the nexus 4 in my cart and after pressing continue it stays in the cart and nothing happens...
29. RAJordao (Posts: 6; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
Yeah...but before it was sold out it was giving me errors..so close hahahaha

In my country (Belgium) we can't buy the Nexus 4 nor the Nexus 10. Europe is a developing region to google (apart from France and Germany then). LG has decided not to sell the Nexus 4 at all, not even outside the Playstore.
So get lost LG! I'll never buy any of your products! Discriminating s*ns of b*tches!
40. BadAssAbe (Posts: 434; Member since: 22 Apr 2011)
The Nexus 10 is form Samsung
LG did make the Nexus 4 but google is the one selling them.
Just like any products you buy, they may contain LG parts.
This one product called nexus 4 however was a lot of LG Parts.
Best of luck to everyone
remember maybe its a good thing you couldn't get the nexus 4/10 this week because now you have time to look for a good case before you accidentally drop your new nexus the 1st day you get it like my friend.
No worries the phone was fine just dented a little
51. toondewachter (Posts: 54; Member since: 24 Jan 2012)
Ok, I mixed up with Samsung and LG (my bad ;-) )
But LG is the one pulling the strings on whether or not the Nexus 4 is sold out of the Playstore or not. Why do you think it won't be sold in Taiwan? Why do you think the US price outside the Playstore is $499? That's not determined by Google in any way!
If you're not convinced yet, it was LG who first told us that the device was going to come at the end of this month and it was LG who told that the device won't be sold in the Benelux at all. If this was up to Google, why didn't they make all the announcements?
I am not an idiot and I know that LG produces parts for many other vendors. They make excellent screens for Apple e.g.
Apart from the fact that your post was quite offensive, you just ridiculed my actual point here: I am angry! It's not fair that Google decided to allow sale of the Nexus 4 in just a few countries (through Playstore). And if sales are allowed by LG outside the playstore, the price is set unreasonably high!
Point is that either way the European mainland always has to pay more for the same product (except for France and Germany, which are apparently of more value to international companies).
The only exception is ASUS for now! They had the decency to sell the Nexus 7 for the same price as it can be found in the Playstore. Thank you for that, ASUS, at least one fair company!
If ASUS can, so can LG! But they won't, cause all they want is to make lots of profit! The way I see it, this was their opportunity to make a good name here, and they've just ruined all by themselves! Good job, LG!
52. BadAssAbe (Posts: 434; Member since: 22 Apr 2011)
What about the nexus 10?
Thats all samsung and Google, you cant blame it all on LG if ever the Nexus 10 wont sell in your country.
If google sells the the Nexus 7 in your country then I believe its only a matter of time before you also get to buy the 4 and 10.
Even the iPhone5's cant keep up with demands, how do you expect a lesser known phone to?
LG just makes the phones like any other product, the playstore is ran by google only, i doubt LG, ASUS, HTC, and Samsung have any input on who gets to buy first besides their own country.
55. toondewachter (Posts: 54; Member since: 24 Jan 2012)
I am sorry, but what country or planet are you from? I already apologized for the mix-up with Samsung!
Now to get this straight: ASUS is selling the Nexus 7 in the Benelux and Samsung decided not to sell the Nexus 10, LG decided not to sell the Nexus 4. Google decided not to offer the Playstore for devices here.
And for the record: these manufactureres do have a say about pricing outside the playstore and can decide themselves whether or not THEY will sell the devices and at what price.
So stop acting like you know it all, like I would be an idiot! I have the right to be pissed off at LG! Cause they're the ones responsible for the Nexus 4!

Started the process as soon as this post went up, and just got a continued circle of error messages on two browsers and countless attempts. Great job Google! Can't buy it in any store, and your website is crap. This might push me to just get a Galaxy III instead. Just walk into a Best Buy, and voila. Phone in hand. What a concept.
27. remixfa (Posts: 14251; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
you can buy it through Tmobile stores tomorrow. It's just more expensive since google isnt subsidizing it.
23. remixfa (Posts: 14251; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
the 16 gig sold out in about 10-15 mins and the 8 gig sold out in like 35-40.
That was quick.
Got my 16 gig on order.. so woop woop :)

Keep getting an error on the 32GB Nexus 10. It's in my cart but....ahhahhhhhhhhhh
31. PhoneAddiction (Posts: 78; Member since: 07 Nov 2012)
So many phones out. So many choices. I don't know what to do. :-/ I think I'm just going to wait for next year's rumors lol... Probably not. I'll probably buy this and the Note 2.
34. joonyboy (Posts: 41; Member since: 11 Nov 2010)
Waaait if you got a confirmation email by google, does that mean you purchased it? It says my credit card has not yet been charged but it will once it's shipped? :O
35. aloner (Posts: 2; Member since: 13 Jul 2012)
Same thing happened in Spain this morning. Thirty minutes of error messages, server unresponsiveness and chaos followed by a generic "available shortly" message when they run out of stock
39. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
There must be heck a lot if traffic as site barely has issues managing daily download
37. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
Ha! It sold out! Should be a bitch slap on Verizon's face (mostly all carriers face) for causing trouble. Their nexus sacrifice is paying up in the end
42. The_Innovation (Posts: 574; Member since: 18 Jul 2012)
Here is why Apple will fall, very very soon.
They are selling the unlocked iPhone 4 for $450. The iPhone 4! Not even the 4S. This phone is more powerful than the iPhone 5, and it's $300.
Apple's marketing strategy will fail now. Enough is enough.

nexus 4 suck
54. spideyman409 (Posts: 1; Member since: 14 Nov 2012)
I agree. What's the point of having a "great" phone and not have enough of them at launch. I think they jumped the gun with low actual production units. Nexus 4 doesn't suck, but google sucks for announcing the phone, making you wait 2 weeks and not have any units at launch.
Please post if/when you receive your nexus 4. I think there's a conspiracy. Google made a phone with 8 cores, 4 gb of ram, 64 gb HD and lasts 3 days on one charge. It's so much better than >>>>>>iPhone 5 but you'll never know cause there aren't any available.
