FINALLY getting rid of our trusty old HTC Desire's! Just too old and slow now. They have served us well though! :)

I got sick of waiting for Google / LG to launch it officially over here, so I am importing them. Costing approximately $180 extra for shipping and import duties for 2 devices. Not an issue for me though. ;)

Thanks! It sure does, our import duties over here are ridiculous!

We (me and my wife) were initially considering the 8 GB model, as we use separate devices for everything. But then we thought, what the hell, it's only $50 more for double the storage, so why not? Plus, it is better to have more space and not use it than have less space and need more! :)

We intend to, for sure! Already ready with our ROM's!! :D

You'll love it. I went from the Galaxy S III to the Nexus 4 and couldn't be happier.

If you don't mind me asking...what made you switch? The pure Android experience or something else?

Thanks! But mine is from the Play Store, so it already unlocked. Unless you mean unlocking the bootloader, which I intend to do as soon as I open it! :)

Nice upgrade. I broke the screen on my One X yesterday by a freak accident and considered getting one. I think I'm going to go for it's big brother though, the Optimus G Pro.

I have one as well, and it's the only phone I haven't been tempted to replace to date. I love it.

I'm contemplating possible only replacing my N4 with it's replacement this year if it's a big enough upgrade, and if not then it will be next year's Nexus, plan on sticking with Nexus devices till Google stops making them

Thanks! That it is! The only reason we used our Desire's for so long was because it had (and still has) active development going for it in the community. But it is just too slow now. It takes 3 to 4 seconds just to launch an app. Of course, that is also because I was running JB 4.2.2 on a phone which officially stopped at GB 2.3. :rofl:

I say go for it! :)
