Google Nexus 4
Super Cell Phone Poor Camera-- It Went Back!
So I kept this phone and gave it much thought and trial before returning it. Don't get me wrong it is a quality phone but I was just discouraged over and over again by the camera. I am surprised that Google / LG didn't put much more into the camera quality. I use my cell phone in my line of work and good pictures were a must!
They looked okay on the cell screen but when opened up on the computer screen I was surprised by how much noise, and how much pixelation and less than sharp the images turned out. So I worked on lighting, timing an adjusting the settings and it was no good.
I still gave the phone a 4 overall rating because the hardware and software are excellent. I liked the fact that the phone was pretty much a clean slate when I got it and that I could pick and choose what I wanted. It was also super fast and you could multi task with no problem.
But that wasn't enough to justify paying this phone off for the next 2 years! I expected better. And when you go to focus and move the circle around be careful not to slide the properties to another setting!
Volume could have been better!
*If you are not a photographer and want an excellent phone for the price compared to the competition, then this is the phone for you. But if you are picky about your photo quality....then keep looking.
I was really excited about the Nexus....maybe next time!

i had so many android phones before but this phone is great. looks great and also functions are great. battery life is quite ok, not so good. but battery life depends how many apps and what kind of apps you have, so do not install apps that you are not using.
i mostly like NFC function of phone, with google wallet setup, it is very easy to pay wireless. CVS and Walgreens have new credit card reader and it is very easy to pay by phone with google wallet.
you can see different good and bad reviews on youtube but it depends on you, what you like.
few apps will make your nexus 4 amazing phone. here i am listing few apps for you..
1- no 1 is tasker...(very powerful app and it can do almost everything for you, it looks hard first but very easy when you use to with it. you do not need battery saver apps, if you have this. use youtube to learn about tasker)
2- Airdroid (transfer data between pc and phone with wifi)
3- Call Recorder Pro- (records incoming and outgoing calls)
4-HD Widgets ( place small shortcuts switches to screen for easy and fast control)
5-NFC Task Launcher (write NFC tags and control your phone with small nfc stickers, watch youtube videos, order your nfc tags online)
6-ES file explorer (explore contents of phone and manage it)
7- Wave Control Pro (control music players with wave of your hand, like galaxy s4)
8- Light Manager (very good app to manage LED notification light on nexus 4 with different color and speed of blink)
9- eweather HD (put big clock with hourly for-cast weather on screen, very easy to update weather)
10- BatteryGuru (snapdragon batteryguru to save battery life of nexus 4, apps first learn at first 4 days and then automatic save battery for you without turning off wifi or data)
there are other good apps to like google drive, drop box, avg antivirus pro...etc but this 10 are mine favorite and must have apps for nexus 4... try those 10...
thanks for reading, and hope it will helpful to you.

Great Phone Indeed!
The Nexus 4 Not only beats the S3 in its processor , 2GB of Ram , And Speeds But Also at its Sleek/Slim Design and Also great price. The Nexus 4 has many great features which really impressed me. The only downside to this phone was its lack of LTE but on further studying an LTE chip is present in this phone. To finalize , the nexus 4 is an all around great android handset which is totally worth buying :)
