Google Nexus 4 with not Premium Display
In direct comparison with previous Galaxy Nexus is 4 bit shorter, the display with 4.7 inches but about the same. LG uses a True HD IPS screen with 1280 x 768 pixel resolution. The display is sharp crack, but not nearly as bright as that of the LG Optimus 4X HD .

Google extend keyboard with Swype style gesture input that works perfectly. Even complicated words, the system detects easily. Also interesting widgets on the lock screen. A wiper left open the camera, also easily place other widgets like the calendar or mail on screen.
Qualcomm now with four cores
Google Nexus 4 use the brand new Qualcomm S4 Pro . Support the quad core with 2 GB of RAM. In addition with Jelly Bean, the CPU actually gives buttery soft performance.
Applications open and close quickly, the switch between the home screens works smoothly. The Google phone while surfing with dual channel HSPA, LTE does not support it.
8 megapixel with photo sphere
The new Google lg Nexus 4 with 8 Mp. Although the camera brightens dark scenes especially well on without flash.
With Android 4.2 Google assigns the camera menu in circle. A click on one of the options opens a new, further outward circle. Another new feature is the photo sphere called 360 degree image.
It set up the smartphone to a point and the image can then extend horizontally or upward. That works on quite well, some distortion in the transitions and cut, standing close to the camera objects However, you must take into account.
Back with Good Battery life
The battery life of Google LG Nexus 4 In our test, After the update the talk time in GSM mode with maximum transmit power lies with 7:30 hours in normal range before the update was this shorter by an hour.
Not good at all, however the time it takes to fully discharged battery to fully charge. Nearly half time 3:20 minutes to pass before the battery is completely full again.
A praise worthy voice quality to phone and on land line side clear and very easy to understand. The speaker is on the back, the overlying glass plate was cut accordingly. If the mobile phone put on a flat surface, the sound is extremely subdued.

Great for $ 599 you get a latest unit with a nice display, great performance, sophisticated OS and solid battery life. With the pictures of 8 megapixel camera, we are a bit disappointed by the video even more.
Despite with the positive results, the Nexus 4 is lightly behind its predecessor Galaxy Nexus by Samsung.
I do not recommend to buy the 8 gb version (no microsd slot) of the Nexus 4, it has about 4 to 5 GB just not enough free memory. For all those who love to save movies and a lots of songs.
