Was it just me or did the ad seem more like an ad for the voice App? Then in the last few seconds they are like "Oh yea, and it comes in 3 sizes." Competing with the Siri ad hype? But a bit late?

Need a better ad...

LTE is fast, but too gimped and expensive for what you get, so I don't consider the new Nexus' lack of LTE to be a major deal. Let me know when you can get 250GB of LTE data for $30/month, then it might be worth using.

When this contract is up Ill sign another and get a phone for cheap.
Am I missing something? Do people really switch carriers that often?

$63 a month for 2 years?!

I paid £400/$640 for my Galaxy Nexus and then on a 1 month rolling plan with (Truly) Unlimited Data, Texts and 250 minutes for £10/$16

If you calculated that over 2 years, its only £26/$41 a month

A 2560x1600 PLS resolution must be insanely good, especially at that price point.

here's some info on Mali T604 and Exynos 5 dual

-2 GB RAM
-1280x768 IPS+ display
-$299 8GB
-$349 16GB
-Direct updates from Google.
-No carrier specific bloatware or crappy manufacturer UI customizations.
-UNLOCKED PHONE WITH NO CONTRACT!!!
The device will pummel my current Droid X2 into the ground, with or without LTE. In other words, I've found my next phone.
Those of you with SGSIII or the current Galaxy Nexus or other LTE high-end smartphones, this phone is probably a side-grade for you guys, but for those of us with terrible smartphones, the Nexus 4 has my name written all over it. thumb.gif
I think the final point that makes the Nexus 4 such a winner is that in-order to get the "unlocked" part of the phone from any other high-end smartphone, you will end up paying between $600-800.
Google just took the rule book and threw it into a fire. Good for them. biggrin.gif

To be honest this thing puts the Galaxy S3 to shame! Quad Core Krait is going to be amazing! I want one and it's extremely within my price range!

Im thinking of buying 2 phones but I got questions regarding extended warranty with the carrier? Anyone had any experience on sending their Nexus to TMobile for warranty repairs or replacement? I pay the $6 extra a month cause my wife is always having "issues" with her phones, but I never got a phone directly from Google. So I wonder if TMobile will swap it with a good one if you have problems or do I have to deal with google?

Thanks. biggrin.gif

I think Google also decided to stay away from LTE now because of the various problems plaguing the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, particularly the erratic updates and hardware glitches. If we also have a global LTE standard and not a bunch of incompatible frequencies then we can see better adoption of the tech.
