LG Nexus 4 Specs Review: Can LG's Nexus crush Samsung's "Next Big Thing"?

0. phoneArena posted on 30 Oct 2012, 08:52

Without any notice in advance, Google has just announced its new Nexus smartphone - the LG Nexus 4. As the name implies, this time Google has decided to partner with LG for the production of its latest 'pure Android' handset, instead of Samsung, which was the producer of the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus...

Nexus 4 is not designed to compete with LTE phones which include Note 2.

Nexus 4 is top phone with affordable price and will serve all people around the World not just in the US.

Absolutely agree!
Nexus is one heck of a device and its unfair to compare it to Samsung's flagships or the upcoming Galaxy s4. They're both very different.
Hardware-wise Galaxy S4 will win the battle simply because its coming out after 6 months or so and will definitely sport superior hardware like processor, more ram, better screen tech, yada-yada...and will have a great fan following if not the greatest but the Nexus has always carved a niche of its own.

Its a pure google device with specs which'll still be respectable even around the launch time of Galaxy s4 and at a budget price. so they're not competing with each other

agree with everything except better buld and better screen.......which is why I would never buy a samsung device over this nexus 4 and HTC phones as well.......so samsung can have all the power and features it wants to have but if samsung continues to put that dim and blueish tinted "amoled" in there, then I will always look past them for something with a better display and a more "premium".build.....If the galaxy S4 is just a larger Gs3 wit more power, then they will be doing what apple has been dong for 5 years now........Selling the same old stuff to people and calling it new

Without LTE it'll lose a lot of US customers. But the price will encourage many other carrier US customers and many other world customers. Expect the same sales as the GNex overall worldwide sales.

Sorry guys gotta laugh LG is soft even with this Lg Nexus 4. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is on a level totally different from other handsets. Trust me no stock Nexus 4 will ever touch this Galaxy Note 2 or Galaxy S3 for that matter....

sorry buddy,
but the US SGS3 is crap. The Note2 is awesome, but that comes with an overclocked CPU and GPU to make it awesome. The Nexus4's krait quad pro is stronger without the CPU/GPU clock, and will get even strong when peeps do start O/Cing it.

It doesnt hold a candle to Samsung's soon to be released Exynos 5 dual and quads, but for now, the N4 is the big guy on the block.

All the extra functionality in the note is just apps that can be ported. I intend on taking that spiral pic gallery for my nexus4.

Lg is far from a major player in the android game. Samsung is android that will always be. NO current manufacturer can hold a candle to the Galaxy Note features and optimized sofware. Samsung PIMP SLAPS ALL...

not until 2013. Or else it would creat disputes among multi-nexus oems. And overall porfits of all will reduce.

The price of this phone is obviously putting a shame on bb, rim's flagship model the bold 9900 sells for 5.500.000 idr in my country which is equivalent to 570 bucks, what do i get with it ? Small screen ! Slow processor ! Small battery ! And that is only the tip of the iceberg...i've no doubt that rim will ask a lot for bb 10 devices...

Do you still wanna defend bb ?

You cant answer my statement can you ? Because what i said is a fact, bb is kinda greedy but not as greedy as apple, google is putting consumer first,

What history? You said in the last article "bold 9900 is amazing!!" If bold is amazing then how about this nexus ?

I can't believe this phone is 4.9 ounces. This is going against the current trend of larger phones but also being lighter at the same time. No wonder LG is losing against Samsung. I would have been impressed if LG was able to get the phone to be around 4.5 ounces. The LG Nexus is a smaller phone than the GS III so it should weigh less, respectively.

I don't get you people, first if a device is light "it feels cheap" but suddenly a device packs some "premium" and a nice weight to it and its a bad thing too? How can you make people happy these days jeez

I don't get why people care if a phone is 5 ounces or 2 ounces. Can you not carry it for hours at a time? Are you seriously that weak? I feel weight only starts to matter when it comes to tablets and laptops. I also feel the same about thickness. The thickest phone out there is still good enough for me.

There is no need to "Crush" anybody. One Android manufacturer can live very happily with another. It's Apple which is a direct threat to all the Android manufacturers with Apple's sue-first-ask-questions-later policy. *It* must be crushed.

Amen to that

Btw, I'd never take a nexus 4 over my galaxy s3 (not enough storage and screen estate given the on screen buttons ) but in the price value and tech level comparison it wins without a shadow of doubt
