Google Nexus 4
Best phone I've ever purchased, without question.
Let me start this off by saying that I formerly used an iPhone (given to me by my employer), and I had 2 Android phones prior to this one. I liked the openness of Android, but on all of the devices I've used it with - it just seemed too laggy, and not nearly as smooth as the iPhone. But from the moment I picked up this phone and started playing around with it - I had to own it. It is every bit as smooth as the iPhone (even after I've installed all of my apps and loaded it up with music, videos, and call/text history). The display is very sharp, although the pixel density is just below the iPhone 5's - you wouldn't be able to tell unless you looked at it from less than an inch away (which would be ridiculous anyway). The phone's build quality is very impressive as well. The glass on the back has a shimmering pattern (which is cool), and there are no big gaps in the construction or excessive play. But perhaps this phone's best characteristic: it's VERY quick! Just about everything opens up instantly, and it's hard not to just sit there and swipe from one thing to the next as fast as you can! Call quality is excellent, and the advanced Bluetooth works very nicely with my car - since the phone never has to leave my pocket (music player auto-starts, and you can control everything from the radio). Plus, considering what you get - the price is excellent!

Good phone, but...
Had this phone for 11 days. All was fine for the first four or five days and then the bluetooth started working intermittently. Now it doesn't send audio to my car speakers at all. Without this feature it is of little use to me. Older and cheaper devices work just fine in my car. Don't spend the money untill LG or Google fixes this issue. Do some research it's not an isolated case.

I would have to say that thus far, the Nexus 4 is the best Android phone I have had. The overall performance of the phone is just what you expect from a Smartphone. When you have good call quality, data speeds, battery life and a GPS that is just awesome. You really can't ask for much more... In addition, you know that being a Google phone, you will receive updates and without delays. Also, the ability to personalize the phone even further from OEM Stock by installing custom ROMs is just another plus.

ive had this phone for a week now and i have to say couldnt be happier!!!! this is my third smartphone and by far the best, and for the price your not gonna get a better phone. excellent battery life, smooth operation easy to use, really fast processor, no lag at all, but the best thing has got to be the battery, i unplugged the phone at 6:00 this morning and here it is 4:00 in the afternoon and the battery still has 78%, unbelievable!!!! over all the best phone on the market period, only thing i dont like is the speaker is on the bottom of the phone, so when sitting on a flat surface you cant hear it very well, and the phone is made of glass so you will have to get a case right away, im easy on my phones anyway so it doesnt matter. dont even bother looking at other phones!! this is the best. oh ya, it has no external memory capabilities
