Google Nexus 4

This Nexus 4 is a product made from the combined efforts both of Google and
LG corporations. It can rightfully be said to be one of the best LG smart
phones produced so far. The Nexus 4 is designed with a beautiful display
and is one of the first smart phones to run on the android jelly bean
4.3,and it’s a number one choice for anybody who is an Android lover,
because, it was designed to display any Android news first before it gets
to other android devices. It comes with a 1.7GHz processor accompanied with
a 2GB RAM and Snapdragon A-chip. The device supports the 2G, 3G but lacks
support for the 4G network and LTE. The phone is encased in glass, that is,
the front and back sides of the device is covered with thin clear glass,
this gives it more protection makes it look just sleek and classy. And it
comes with a powerful primary camera of 8MP.and a not so wow secondary
camera of 1.2 MP. It also comes with two memory options of 8GB and 16GB
with no external memory slot in place, ad comes with a wireless charging

Nexus 4:

  2. The glass that is used to sandwich the front and back of the phone can easily break. Especially the back glass cover.
