Google Nexus 4

 

I see the 16GB Google Nexus 4 is on the Google Play Store for $359. Comes unlocked, anyone have one of these and is it any good?

N4

It's amazing. Quad core, 2 gigs of ram. Fast, smooth and the best of all, inexpensive.

Oh, YES!

Oh, YES! As far as firmware concerns, it will have the newest and latest Android, while others may wait months or even years to get it.

Yes, it is a good phone. I

Yes, it is a good phone. I have it for the last several months. I had difficulty pairing it with Nuvi 3597 initially. But it is not Google issue but more Garmin. It is highly recommended.

Google Nexus 4

I haven't really noticed any difference one way or the other. But then, at least in my case, I have a few apps that I like and that is it.

If you have 4.3 you may want to check out the new app permissions manager. I configured it on my Nexus 7 to block location access for certain apps.

I have a Nexus 7 and recently a Nexus 4 too. Nice phone. Like all android phone, need to keep a eye on apps and battery usage. I am testing TomTom, copilot and Locus and will settle with one.

I have stayed away from Nexus devices because they will not work on Verizon. However, the Nexus 7 LTE is claimed to work on Verizon - so I will consider it.

Nexus devices also tend to not have removable storage (SDCard) nor removable batteries. These are negatives in my mind.

Not correct... partially

While true the Nexus 4 does not have a removable battery, my Nexus S does. On the 4, it is user serviceable though.

As for the storage aspect, 16 gigs does well for me as I don't load the phone with non-essential stuff. 2 gigs of music is fine as I have a USB port on my truck head unit with a 16 gig card in it.

GPS apps

Locus and TomTom both work great with the onboard GPS. I keep both installed, and got rid of CoPilot!

I have CoPilot on my Nexus 7. What was the difference in the CoPilot and Locus and TomTom?
I have never tried either of these and want to see if I should.
Thanks.

Now that I own a Nexus 7

Now that I own a Nexus 7 LTE, I may never use a smart phone again.
