For those with the 8gb Nexus 4.
How are you liking it?

Would you consider 8gb enough? 
I'm looking for a new phone, Tmobile, preferable under $300, used or new.

Any recommendations?
spring for the 16gb Nexus 4, just about $50 more.
Yeah bro just save up a little more. It will be 398 after tax. Somewhere around there. It comes unlocked and you can get a cheap ass plan.

I think they've improved significantly with the software aspect of S4.

The design was disappointing due to its strikingly similar to S3, but I'm not an owner of S3 so it still looks great to me. 

However tbh, I'd rather wait for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. That'd be sick and the rumor is that it'll sport 6" inch display.

big.LITTLE is a gimmick? If the new Exynos was a true 8-core chip, then yes, it would be a gimmick, but alas it's a 4(A15)+4(A7) big.LITTLE arrangement meant to save battery during basic tasks, and dish out power when it is needed.


A bigger battery is ALWAYS useful. No top-tier/flagship smartphone should be released without a ~2500mah battery.


Ultrapixels, yeah, gimmicky title, but not a gimmick in function. A 4MP shot is a 6"x8" in print form, and plenty big enough(2400x1600px) for sharing on the web, even with some light cropping, you're still able to fill a 1080p display. So a 4MP capable of taking in more light per pixel, should result in better clarity/quality in a wide range of lighting conditions. 13.1MP cameras, that's a gimmick, because at 300dpi, you're printing out a small poster(~0.25m^2). Anything >8MP is a gimmick, at least as far as phones/P&Ss go, unless of course you're ABSOLUTELY awful at taking photos and need to crop to 1/4 of the size with regularity.


The UI itself on both the HTC and Samsung, is something I could do without, but there is no denying that some of the features they are bringing to the table, will be further refined over time and implemented on all Android handsets. So by that fact alone, I like that they have continued using their own custom skins for Android. And kudos to Samsung for releasing a flagship device with the most current version of Android, hopefully this spurs other OEMs to do the same.


This all said, I'm still waiting for the 'X-Phone' from Googorola.


Also, I will assume K. meant revolutionary, because by their very nature, incremental upgrades ARE evolutionary.

have you not read all the reviews on the ultrapixel? yes its good in lowlight, but during daytime its overexposed, lowlight pictures are washed up and muddy and tha'ts from all the reviews. I don't really care much for cameras as i have a 5d for that. I agree about the little.big, so samsung gets my nod if i was going to get a phone. And if I get either, i would root it the second I get home, so the ui is whatever for me. I was waiting for the s4 to blow me out of the water, but I'd say that the nexus 4 is still the best android available, even without lte. I'm waiting for the xphone as well, but I need a new phone now.

The next contenders are going to be Motorola X , Nexus 5, and LG Optimus G Pro [It has only been released in Korea]

I'm leaning towards Sony Xperia Z, LG Optimus G Pro, or Nexus 5. Oh yeah Galaxy Note 3,

 I don't like AMOLED display so no, S4 nor Note 3 and short battery life/un-replaceable battery so Xperia Z doesnt really fit my standard...

Either LG Optimus G Pro or Nexus 5 ultimately be the best phones unless some shit happens

I do, I use cloud storage for everything.

Doesn't hinder my usage at all.
