With so much smoke, we can only conclude there must be fire - the LG Nexus is likely coming on October 29th. The device is known by many names: the LG E960 Mako, the LG Optimus Nexus and the LG Nexus 4 (it’s the fourth-generation Nexus).
So here’s what’s on this prototype. LG’s Nexus in its current version runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, but chances are it’d get an update to Android 4.2 just before its launch. There is a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels, a whopping quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm chip under the hood (hopefully an S4 Pro like on the Optimus G), and 2GB of RAM.
Internal storage is only 8GB and we’ve heard nothing about an expansion slot, and that would seem like a downer. The rear camera is an 8-megapixel one.
The folks who got the prototype promise a full overview of the phone very soon, so stay tuned, and in the meantime feel free to check out the pictures of the device. How do you like it?
Google Nexus 4 OS: Android 5.1 Lollipop, 5.0 Lollipop, 4.4.4, 4.4.3, 4.4.2, 4.4, 4.3, 4.2.2, 4.2.1, 4.2 View Full specs

What the hell? No it wasn't, reviewers by and large seemed to like that screen when it was new. I'm sure it gets slapped around by SLCD2 panels and newer HDAMOLED screens, but that's just what happens given enough time. Can we stop flip flopping on screens for just a while?

You don't need an S4 Prime, Troll. I went over this with you already! The S4 Pro quad is plenty of power for 2 years at LEAST. And even if it wasn't enough (but it is), we all know you would just OC it to 1.8-2 GHz anyways.

Yeah, honestly the Exynos quad is all we need in terms of processing power for a good while, this S4 quad is a bit un-needed. Everyone needs to focus on cameras and battery capacity now. Not to say they should stop working on chips, but they should just have the next generation of chips ready for when mobile OS's get a bit too much to handle for the current chips. The new chips coming out lately are just power-houses and don't need upgrading as often as previous ones did. When the A15's do eventually come to market next year, what will we do with them? They don't really offer any immediate benefits over current quad cores, except for maybe battery life. All they really do is guarantee support for longer. But, by the time current devices with quad cores start being dropped on support, you would have probably had your eyes set on a new device anyways. Or you could just adopt towards rooting and get the latest version of Android any time you want.

I really like the minimalistic design. It does look much like the gnex, but without the unneeded curve design and hideous camera bulge. I really like that its completely flat from head to toe. The back pattern is nice, but I think I'd prefer piano black. It seems like they are just using that to make it identifiable, which I understand, but I'm sure not thrilled about.

Whenever I see an iDevice next to pretty much anything else, I'm consistently reminded of just how toy-like it actually looks.
