The price tag will probably stop me though frown.gif The standard HTC One already goes for around $600 off-contract. Can't imagine the Google version being much less than that.

If they are going to do separate google versions of phones why not just ditch touchwiz/HTC sense all together and only ship the 'pure' android versions?

So I just got my n4 earlier, coming from a note 2 and Verizon. Happy to be free from big red and their horrific tiered data plans. I'll miss my big phone, but I've always loved my Nexis devices so I'm home again.

Got a Nexus 4 16GB Stock at the moment.

This is the first android device that I have owned that I didn't feel completely compelled to root out of the box. XD

The Nexus 4 is my first android device too, although before this I owned iPhones and always had them jailbroken so there wasn't a whole lot of difference for me. The only thing I liked about iPhones is that you can jailbreak and do whatever you like, restore them and nobody knows any different.
Where with android devices I'm led to believe that the manufacturer can tell if you've been rooting, unlocking the bootloader or flashing ROMs and the warranty is void. Whether this is the case with Nexus 4 I don't know.

Nexus phones, tablets, etc... are meant to be rooted, Google wants it that way. When you go to Samsung or htc they are locked down and have to be broken into somehow. Once you break into Samsung and start flashing, they have flash counters, but you can even reset those. You can restore any nexus to factory bc Google releases the factory image to do so, unlike other manufacturers.

Hi Nexus 4 owners,

I'm seriously considering one of these phones, or possibly the latest offering from Google if there is one on the horizon!

But, can anyone tell me what the bluetooth is like on these. Mainly in terms of quality of connection when pairing with a bluetooth car stereo.

From experience with android devices in the past, they have been a bit hit and miss, what with dropped connections, overheating handsets etc.

It's one factor that's making me cling for dear life to my iPhone :/

Google is offering their own version of the GS4 and HTC One soon. I think they should be coming out this month. Same hardware as the originals but with the stock Android OS that the Nexus line is known for.

As far as the Nexus 4 goes, I've no problems with it. I can connect it via BT to my brother's 2013 Camry just fine, and the steering wheel controls work perfectly with my phone. No problems with dropped connections or overheating.

Never gonna happen, and frankly I would rather it be this way. I like the "extra" stuff on the gs4/note 2, like motion, s pen etc... I like choices and that's what's finally happening. Sometimes I like running completely stock, then other times I wanna play with a completely different type of Rom. Imo sense isn't bad it's just so bloated, tw is just fugly, but I like all the cool motion stuff, I enjoyed it on my note 2. It shouldn't have taken this long for this to happen, but I'm not going to complain now.
