Before we visit the specs of this beast, let us tell you why you would love the LG Nexus 4:

  1. Finally an android phone that is as fast as I am. Switching, Responsive. Beautiful
  2. Battery life—I was worried about this coming in, having had a number of devices that give you 6 or 8 hours. Now, I routinely get 13, 14, even 17 hours on one charge. Yep, insane. Sure, I’ll turn off GPS, Bluetooth, etc., and I do switch to wi-fi when I’m in the house instead of cellular data, but whatever…that’s a ton of time
  3. Google Goodies—I actually use most of the Google service, though people claim they are better on iOS device, having an iPhone5 myself, I feel the root deep integration on Android devices knocks of iOS
  4. The camera—you can do all the usual stuff. Panoramas, take snapshots while doing a video, but now they have this 360 degree view (they call it Photo Sphere) and you can take huge vista shots
  5. Voice recognition/search—it just works really well though Siri still the big momma
  6. Google integration—obvious, but critical for Google Docs, Google Voice for me
  7. Facial recognition security. You just look at the camera and it recognizes your face to unlock the phone (ok, so this doesn’t work all the time, but it’s still neat, specially the new wink)
  8. Data speed—people were complaining about no 4G LTE support. Frankly, I think it’s all marketing hooey. In India you ought to thank the lord for a 3G connection.
  9. Oh, and it’s unlocked, so I can make the phone a hot spot for my other devices.
  10. Ease of use and intuitive. Just across the board
  11. Top of the line OS—straight from Google with no extra stuff layered on by a cell phone provider or service company
  12. Wireless charging…Finally Nokia can stop putting Lumia 920 outta your head for having wireless charging
  13. Integration with, well, everything…including Exchange. Finally, Android is mega-ready for primetime
And yes I am an Apple Addict! I have all the generation of iPhone’s, an iPad 2, (MacBook Air, out of context here) but the flexibility and horsepower of this device…I’ll take it head to head on an iPhone 5 any day.
