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.
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.
1. Camera is better than the old Galaxy Nexus and is better and worse than Galaxy S3 at certain things
2. Hardly a killer selling point for phones
3. Slow data speeds COMPARED TO LTE, you still get a couple of megabits per second, thats hardly slow.

OK according to Android Central, and to add to the list of cons:
The battery sucks
No SD or Micro SD Card Slot
No option for LTE Data
I think people will be better off with a Samsung Galaxy don't you think?
The only good thing about the Nexus is that you will always get the latest and greatest Android version first before anyone else. That's it.
Price.............in the UK the Nexus 4 is £240, the Galaxy S3 is £500 sim free. It beats S3 on performance, ok so it has IPS screen instead of AMOLED but it is higher resolution, matches the S3 camera wise, camcorder lacks behind but hardly killer selling point.
Sure they cut corners to keep the price down, IPS LCD instead of AMOLED, No SD Card, No LTE, but people who need that will go for a more expensive phone, the ones that don't get a industry leader matching phone for cheap.
