:woot: Amazing price for the specs and the demand seems to show it.

May put a dent in the contract market. I for 1 hate 24 month contracts and will look at buying one of these outright and have a rolling contract sim only.

Just need more stock :)

The surprisingly cheap Google Nexus 4 has obviously been a hit with consumers, with handset sporting an impressive quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 4.7-inch HD display, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera and NFC technology, all for £239 for the 8GB model, or £279 if you want 16GB inside.

I'd buy one if not the glass on the body, irreplaceable battery and no option for sd card expansion.

Yup, got completely shafted by Google. Must have had it in my basket at least 20 times, each time if failed on processing the order.

NOT HAPPY! :(

I know it's not ideal but better they have limits in place rather than committing themselves to orders that might take weeks and months to process,

**** you Google. Got on early this morning, tried to buy, checkout errored 5 times and binned my purchase. After that the buy option is gone, now just says "Notify me"

I was really excited, I was leaving iPhone to finally try Android and Googles incompetence prevents me from getting an order.

Don't understand why this phone is such a big deal because according to the reviews it sucks.

Look at the price, it is faster than Galaxy S3 the android phone of choice for half the price. You get pure android OS with no bloated crap and timely updates, the Nexus line usually gets the latest OS first.

Say they had 100,000 units ready to ship and they get 1,000,000 purchase requests, what do you expect them to do?

So the Cons are not that big.. but you consider it a poor rated phone? Not everyone uses AT&T, Takes Pictures/Videos and requires full HD, uses voice dialing, nor uses it as an icecube.

It says: EXCELLENT but it is not EXCELLENT. Why have a phone with so many cons and slow data speed when there are way better alternatives out there?

To me something excellent is something that is perfect. This unit is not perfect so therefore whoever did the review is mistaken.

1. Mediocre camera and camcorder
2. Ineffective voice dialing
3. Gets warm (all phones do this so this is irrelevant)
4. Slow data speeds

Excellent? Really? Editor's Choice? - What a joke.

So the Cons are not that big.. but you consider it a poor rated phone? Not everyone uses AT&T, Takes Pictures/Videos and requires full HD, uses voice dialing, nor uses it as an icecube.


What do most people who own smart phones like this do with it?

1. Take pictures and videos to share on their stupid social networks. So this phone is useless for that.
2. Ineffective voice dialing - I guess you are screwed if you wanna go hands-free while driving.
3. Slow Data speeds - well there goes your Facebook surfing and everything else internet related.
