LG Nexus 4 manual leaks, sorts out wireless charging

LG Nexus 4 manual leaks, sorts out wireless charging
Not to be outdone by its big brother the Samsung Nexus 10, the LG Nexus 4 also wants people to see its manual, so LG UK has posted the document on its website. At this point, there's almost nothing left to learn about the device, since it has been shown extensively in with the lost device, and now the manual has come out as well. 

LG Nexus 4 manual leaks, sorts out wireless charging
The manual is a fairly standard document, and doesn't really give all that much info that we didn't have. One bit of note is that the manual mentions that there will be both an 8GB and 16GB models of the phone. The more interesting bit is that it looks like the Nexus 4 will support wireless charging, as the diagram does show an induction coil on the back of the device. However, the wireless charger will not be included with the phone as the manual just lists a normal cable charger

So, it looks like users will have to buy the wireless charger separately, but it is still in the cards. It doesn't seem like there's anything else to know about the Nexus 4. Now, it's just a matter of what software perks Google will announce with the 4.2 update to Jelly Bean.

it's not an apple product to be overpriced. Google always prices their product @ a pretty decent price.

I don't feel need to use wireless charger at all. I even don't see how it could be more user-friendly, It is almost the same way as you charge using charging dock, wireless charging is slower. Also wireless charging is not good for your health!

I don't understand why you all keep claiming this phone has lack of design WTF!!! This is a nexus phone and you know it!!! and there are plenty of sexy android phones out there for you to choose!!! Keep hating, most reader here love nexus and you should respect that!!!

So by your logic, each Nexus should have a terrible design/ a Nexus phone doesn't deserve a good design. And in case one wants to buy a sexy Android phone, he'll have to buy non-Nexus device.

It's not terrible, it just not attractive. It's all depends on personal preference in the end lol

I think the front has one of the nicest designs ever. But the back, the back is an abomination. Wish they made green and black crystals for the back side; It would be so cool - The Matrix style

I hate leaks- they mess up the surprise. For example: we would have appreciated iPhone 5 more if the design had not leaked over and over again. Similarly we would have appreciated nexus 4 more if it had not leaked.

Some people like me prefer leak, to avoid those stupid fanboys making a overrated concept which lead to disappointment... Plus, the more accurate the leak, the more I trust the OEM. People used to hate LG, but because of the accuracy of the leak, people start to trust LG even more...

I am an apple fan and I really love iPhone 5 but I said to my self to wait for the next nexus and I think this nexus is worth of buying after having 16GB version

I'm thinking the same thing :( Hardest decision ever

im between the N4 and the Note2. My phone is finally on its last kicks, so I'm just biding my time until we get reviews of the N4 out to make a final decision. 2.5 years on a phone that went through extreme modding and a ton of drops and whacks.. pretty impressed with my SGS1

18. wendygarett unregistered

Aren't you already a reviewer?? Lol everyone here love to listen your opinion, including me lol

Yes, if it came with 32 GB of storage I would not be bitching about no SD card. Yes, I am all in the clouds, but I don't have unlimited data. You need both to make this work. For example, I have 10,000+ songs with Google Music, but also keep about a 1,000 songs on my phone. Just streaming music at the gym everyday eats up a lot of 4G data. This phone will only work for me with an unlimited date plan, and I don't have one. Somehow, I do not think I am the only one.

I totally agree with you. I for one am so sick of hearing about "cloud" services being no reason to have cheap expandable storage. Even though I still have unlimited data, the only cloud based service is googs for my contacts. I want my media available whenever and wherever I might be. Lack of external SD is such a killer. Not to mention how much I hate MTP service requiring drivers on every computer. So much better with plug and play mass storage anywhere. Also if the device gets borked. you lost everything not in the cloud. Just a dumb idea.

The LG Nexus 4 has a very similar Design to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. You all said galaxy nexus design is nice while the LG nexus 4 is ugly.. Problem?! YOU GUYS JUST LOOK AT THE BRANDING!

Google needs 2 ditch these 8 gig phone & tab (with no as card) launches. Not buying a phone, or especially a tab with so little storage.
