Google Nexus 4 review

Google's Nexus 4 offers the best overall user experience you'll find on Android - and arguably any mobile platform - today. Its unadulterated Google Android 4.2 software combined with a spectacular display, outstanding performance, excellent camera and inspired design make for a compelling package that shows just how good Android can be.
The Nexus 4 does, however, demand some compromises. The phone has a low amount of internal storage with no option to add an SD card. Its glass encasing, while visually appealing, raises the risk of damage to the device. The phone's battery isn't easily removable, and its unlocked GSM/HSPA+ configuration means it won't work with LTE-based networks.
If you can live with those limitations, the Nexus 4 can give you an unmatched Android experience at a tremendous value - and without the carrier lock-in most similarly priced smartphones require.
