Poll results: Which LG Nexus 4 feature do you like the most?

Poll results: Which LG Nexus 4 feature do you like the most?
The results are in! A total of 2196 people participated in one of our latest polls, and it turns out that the tempting price tag is the most favored feature of the new LG Nexus 4 smartphone, collecting over 43% of the respondents' votes. That should come as little surprise considering the amazing hardware and software that the device incorporates, all the while being priced at only $350, at least in the U.S.

Speaking of hardware and software, they have both been picked by about the same number of people as best LG Nexus 4 features. The latter accumulated 21% of the votes, while the former got about 19.5% of them. But for about 6.5% of all people, it is all about the design. They just like the way the smartphone looks, and don't pay that much attention to what is written on the device's specs sheet. Last but not least, about 9.8% of the ones who voted aren't really into the LG Nexus 4.

Well, according to early benchmark of the processor, it is not more powerful than the dual core version. I hope the benchmarks are wrong, though, because I plan to get one.

Verizon is my carrier, and that means I don't have the option of even considering the Nexus 4. Having said that, I really really like Google's decision to essentially tell Verizon to piss off.

Glad you can see the bigger picture. I think if it was LTE capable, it would be a bit more expensive because LTE is a mostly a Verizon service.

Can't you guys switch carriers in the US?

42. alouden unregistered

I could. In fact, as of November 2nd, I do have that option. However, it becomes a bit more complicated when you are on a family plan. And, to be honest, in my area Verizon's service is the best.

Meh... LTE is overrated, specially Verizon's which give them the power to charge their customers insurmountable amount of charges and overages, and thereby killing Unlimited Data as you know it... Good for Google to sticking their middle finger to the Big Red... I love it!!!

I guess we should just trade in our cars and go back to horse and buggy!.... give me a break....a nexus phone with no LTE in 2013 is unacceptable! Only fan boys would say different!

LTE isn't overrated, it's just not everywhere and on every carrier, blame those cheap bastard carriers who didn't build out an LTE network when the getting was good. So now VZW is the sole LTE big gun and they command stupid ass prices, once competition sets in, they won't be able to command prices this high. I am on VZW and still find their LTE prices to be a kick in the nuts, speed and limit make no sense and that falls right into their trap to get you with overages, see the capitalistic system trap they built there.

Have to agree with the others about LTE. I dont think its over rated. I know I dont wanna go back to dial up when I have 100Mbps down, 20Mbps up Comcast speeds. I dont wanna go back to dial up when I have LTE...lol. (Comcast upped my tier without me knowing. I'm paying waaaay less for those speeds. One thing I like about the ISP's when you stay a loyal customer...RCN does the same thing.) Like with most things....if you dont have it or take advantage of it, its not important to you, or feel you dont need or want it. I love having wifi like speeds just about everywhere when I'm out n about. I dont really use wifi when I'm out n about or know where its at.....

Forgot to mention the HSPA+42. I mentioned this before....I saw/see 20 - 25Mbps average on every LTE Android phone I had on Verizon. HSPA+42 should be just fine.

now the iFans are talking LTE, for long time other phones had LTE and iFan used to say "we don'y need it" and now they are saying you don't have LTE, the same goes for the iphone screen size, ipad min and the list goes on and on. why always the iFan love what they have and don't need what they don't have? because they are always limiting theirselves to the iphone. I personally buy the phone that does what I need not buy the phone then do what the it can!!

you had it wrong it was the android users stating that one you go LTE anything less was unncaceptable and now how times have changed that.. the iphone 5 LTE was a must to "keep" up with the high end devices and now comes the mid range Nexus 3.5G wow

Well, perhaps something to consider is that, at the time, iPhone was either on 3G on Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint, or 2G on T-Mobile. The Nexus is on 3G on AT&T, and a very good 3.5G HSPA+ T-Mobile network. Some tests put the 42+ mbps T-Mobile network right next to LTE networks in performance. The iPhone couldn't take advantage of that.

This is a problem on multiple levels: -3G and 4G mean nothing. They are names. What matters is the actual speed. If T-Mobile HSPA+ 42 is nearly as good as LTE in terms of speed, and is less demanding in terms of battery life, then the absence of LTE is acceptable. Granted, the theoretical maximum LTE speed is well over 42 mbps, but no one is actually getting those speeds, because radios aren't ready for 100mbps LTE yet. -You're comparing a $350 phone to a $650 phone. If you think that an 85% increase in price still offers a fair comparison, you're out of your mind. -At some point, data speeds reach diminishing returns. Low 3G speeds are unbearable to the point where a jump to 4G is necessary. Going from 2 mpbs to 10 mbps is significant. However, by the time you hit something like 10-15 mbps, speed increases become less important. Surely, the jump from 10 mbps to 18 mbps is not as satisfying as the jump from 2 to 10. Don't forget that the Nexus 4 is also a phone intended to be used worldwide. The USA is one of few countries with significant

Exactly....+100000 I'm on Verizon, and in good to great reception areas the best I saw was around 25Mbps. Thats with the RAZR, Rezound, G Nex, Maxx HD.

If 3g and 4g are just names than why does T-moble plan to have LTE in the near future???

One of the few times I will agree with you.... to a certain extent. I cant go back to 3G. I feel any phone that comes out now that isnt 4G is a big compromise. BUT....the Nexus 4 has HSPA+42.....thats pretty damn fast. Alot better than straight 3G.

At&T HSPA+ works fine in my area. 10-15 down is fast enough for me. I can understand if you are on Sprint or Verizon for example as their 3G is pretty slow compared. But for the specs and price with no contract, no delays in updates, its hard to beat.

35. jroc74

Agree. I live n work in a bad reception area, I'm with Verizon.....and those speeds are what I average in my area....more like 10Mbps is my average. Speaking of AT&T....my PS Vita gets better reception in my apt than any Android phone I have/had on Verizon. HSPA is nothing to sneeze at folks. And of course the price make it a definite winner.

You are both right. Android users were bragging about having LTE while iPhone users were claiming they don't need LTE

What I get is that it's a cheap, with great OS and good processing power but one ugly sob. That's me putting the graphic in words to all those who voted, lol. Android owners do not like spending copious amounts of cars for hardware, unless it's worth it and the OS has to be free of OEM and carrier bs to be worth the price. Nice specs, but I am not in the least wanting this phone. Google hurry up with the Google initiative, and save monsters like the Droid DNA from OEM garbage and carrier conundrums.
