Congrats. You'll love it. An amazing phone. Beautiful looking, very well built and strong, and super fast at everything. So powerful.
It blows everything else out there away, totally. Can even hook it up to your TV using HDMI, not many have that capability.

If it had LTE (i know a hack was there, but i want native support) then it would be amazing phone and instant buy. i never had LTE before, and it is a must for me now...

pure nexus = PLUS
LG = MINUS
no LTE = MINUS

waiting for next nexus.

A very nice upgrade indeed :)

I went from the Desire to the Galaxy Nexus and thought that was a massive upgrade, i'm sure you will find going to the Nexus 4 the same!

Quick question Nexus 4 owners....

Since I am importing the phones from the US, will I need to buy a different wall charger or will the supplied one work? We use 220 volts over here as opposed to 110 volts over there.

You'll likely need an adapter, it'll use the US wall plugs.

As long as you have any standard USB charging wall socket (like the one that came with your desire), you should be able to just use that the supplied USB -> MicroUSB cable to charge the phone? :)

I use one I got for my Amazon Kindle, to charge my Windows Phone and my Nexus 7 tablet - gotta love having intercompatible charging standards after so many years of proprietry crap!

I already have the converter for the plug shape, I was talking about the difference in voltage.

It is true that the plugs are all the same - Micro USB. But isn't the output voltage different for different devices? I don't want to end up over or under charging the phones! :(

fear - the proprietary crap might come sooner again as you think. EU failed.

Great device. But I recommend people to hold on until Google IO taking place in May. Rumor has it we will see a new Nexus device. I mean you waited that long, why not way two more weeks to get the latest and greatest?

I read about that. But they are not going to release a Nexus 5 just 5 months after the Nexus 4 came out. They are not Apple after all! ;) Almost everywhere suggests it will just be a 32GB Nexus 4 with LTE support.

For me personally both 32 GB of space and LTE is of no use. I have dedicated media players, and there is no LTE over here for mobiles.

I keep toying with the idea of trading in my Xperia S and grabbing an N4, but I think I will wait out the Google I/O conference and see what comes from that. Should be able to get around £150 for my phone as it's in immaculate condition having spent it's life in a CaseMate Tough and with a screen protector on it.
