We’re seeking to find out exactly how the Google Nexus 4 and Apple iPhone 5 stack up against one another. Going into this crucial holiday period, there’s no arguing that the two are highly sought commodities at the moment, but as with all comparisons, we’ll put our two cents after we compare how they perform in all categories...

IMO that sparkly ugly pattern glass back and the curvy rounded design is very GAY so...

I'm no fan of the sparkly back either, I was hoping they would give it the carbon fiber pattern like they did the AT&T Optimus G. Though, the rounded design is pretty nice, I prefer curved edges, it makes it feel more ergonomic. But some people do like the more blocky "industrial" design.

Lets be honest here, if you want to be able to personalize your phone to your liking and watch videos on a big screen the nexus 4 is for you. If you wanna video capture and take pictures all the time and have a simple camera like interface the Iphone 5 is for you!!!!

Great comparison :) nexus 4 is an amazing phone, even without the low price. iPhone 5 is great too, but nothing beats what you get on the Nexus 4 for the price.

"Even from a cursory glance, we still can’t help be attracted to the iPhone 5’s iconic design and its premium construction. "
The same look since the iphone 4? Must be a fatal attraction....

iP5 all the way, baby! It is like comparing Cadillac to a KIA. One is Apple, the other looks like some cheap plastic copy or some sort of Samsung or an LG. At least the OS could be other, but with this Android - no thanks. In this comparison the Nexus should be at least twice cheaper than the iPhone in order for someone to buy it instead of the Apple.

I just want to know why you kept complaining on the glass back and lack of LTE on the iPhone 4S and said " Good build quality??? IT'S GONNA BREAK after one drop!!!" or " The Galaxy nexus has LTE and is is so much better and faster than the iphone 4S", , But now that the flagship android phone Doesn't have either you say " HSPA+ is fast enough " or " The nexus 4 has a beautiful glass back " . And please don't say it has LTE because it only works in a few canadian bands and carriers will get so pissed that they will push google to kill this hidden feature. KARMA IS A BITCH

I say, even as a so called 'Apple fanboy', I'd still feel the crown has to be given to the Nexus 4. In fact, I'm already deciding whether to switch from my iPhone 5 to a Nexus 4. Yeah iOS is feeling really, really stale so if Apple seriously doesn't hurry up and offer more power user features and customisability (like ringtones etc) I'm gonna ditch iOS cos' its lagging like 1-2 years behind in technology =_=
I'm a really 'price conscious' person, so for what the Nexus 4 offers, speed, design, high end specs and best of all stock Android 4.2, and at a third of the price of iPhone 5 (In my country) the winner must be the Nexus 4.
I regretted getting my iPhone 5 had I known Nexus 4 would be coming out, period.

I have no problem with the fact that the Nexus 4 doesn’t have LTE. The carriers who really implement it charge too much for it anyways. I can live without it. I agree that the screen is brilliant though. Movies and shows look great on it, and a DISH coworker who also has one would agree. I use the DISH Remote Access app on my phone to stream live TV through the Sling Adadpter that I have connected to my home receiver. It’s very useful for keeping up with my shows, even if I can’t be at home.
