If you can build a computer, you can replace almost any part on an Iphone. I've replaced countless Iphone 4 screens and you need organization skills more than anything to accomplish the task.

Back on topic...


I LOVE the fact that Google is offering phones and tablets unlocked directly from them at very aggressive prices, bypassing the carrier entirely. The nexus 4 looks like it's on the right track in terms of build quality and finish.

How long until Google dives into the mobile carrier world ? I can't wait.

LG has the best screen in the market. It's a thousands times better than samsung's amoled screen.

I wish Google made a smaller mobile network kinda like what Simple Mobile does. Or buy out T-Mobile tongue.gif

Yeah. The Google TV has been the first Android device on x86 IIRC.

I'm actually thinking about buying my wife a Nexus 4 on release day now. She's had so many issue with her Droid X2 that both her and I are sick of it. She needs a new phone, and the Nexus 4 sounds like it may be it. For the price, the phone truly is epic.

The thought of not being locked into a contract, either, makes me really REALLY happy. biggrin.gif

I'm still on the edge between the two as the phone is very cheap but I don't want to buy and then a 32GB variant comes lol. On a Galaxy Nexus, still deciding. But I have a feeling my love to Android will make me buy it.

It is cheap too, hell someone could use this "phone" as a "iPod Touch" too.

Yes, that's what "Android Beam" is.

It has the following shortcomings:
- No 4G LTE
- No expandable storage
- 8GB phone is useless
- The back looks funny and a little cheap
- Top and bottom bezels are way too big
- It's made by LG
Otherwise its a decent handset for an exceptional price. Will be very sad to see my iPhone 4S go though - simply sensational phone I must say let down by a mediocre operating system.


The back is made of Gorilla Glass, so it should feel just like your 4S, minus the aluminum sides and the risk of having it shatter if it drops 3 ft onto carpet.
