The Nexus 4 is clearly the best value money can buy by a long shot. And now Google sold out of its initial Nexus 4 devices in 30 minutes after it launched on the Play Store…

If you think it can't sell well because of LG, you are wrong!!!

This is genius move by Google.
Google Play lags behind competition b-c people are too lazy to open an account with Play Store (with credit card info of course).
And now people flock in, they each have to open an account, give all the info only for a "CHANCE" to buy the greatest thing.

could be a marketing strategy, overload from idiots lurking (refreshing continually) waiting to buy as soon as its available or Google just underestimated demand, either way best to wait a bit. Heard people saying the add to cart button reappears from time to time

And people were skeptical as LG was making the hardware...Its a Nexus for cryin out loud...Its gonna sell baby no matter what!

LG phones always have good specs, but the design and software are not the best to put it mildly.
Hopefully after Nexus 4 LG has learned new skills in phone design and will make better phones next year.

Yeah they took a page from Apple, they probably only had one hundred devices in stock.

At this price no need for any "strategy" mate
any fool knows this thing is sweet.

Exactly. At this price, android and those specs. Why should you not buy this device? Same as the nexus 7.

The size of the first batch is not that important, the reaction of people is.
Play Store was overwhelmed by traffic,

Junk phone. This phone is dead on arrival vs iPhone . iPhone 5 trumps all phones specs wise, not to mention it's running on much more refined iOS.

The mind control chip is working it seems.

Much refined iOS meaning better than older iOS versions but still not as good as Android can offer. Also iOS is so restricted.
23. jstahl (Posts: 79; Member since: 03 Sep 2012)
Why? Just because I'm well informed and speak the truth? Forget the software, iPhone 5 hardware trumps all phones out there in the market.
29. blingblingthing (Posts: 533; Member since: 23 Oct 2012)
Really, please explain the results of the HTML 5 test between the iPhone 5 and galaxy s3?

Not even apple fanboys want to be seen with you much less agree with you LOL
NO Thumbs up for you LMFAO

"iPhone 5 hardware trumps all phones out there in the market"
iPhone 5 has dual core, Nexus 4 has quad core
Both has the same megapixel on camera
Nexus 4 has larger resolution & bigger battery
the idea of A6 is more likely to copy S4 custom architecture
"not to mention it's running on much more refined iOS"
i wouldn't call an OS that looks the same since 2007 refined. WP is exciting for its uniqueness, android has a lot of changes in a short period of time. that's what people call refined. iOS is no slouch but it's just getting boring

I wouldn't say trumps, but the iPhone 5 is a beast like the N4, gs3, and one x better than those phones tho? I'd say not, and yes I have an ip5.
