Google's Nexus catalog has just grown by two members in the past couple of weeks, with the introduction of the Nexus 4 smartphone, and the Nexus 10 tablet. Today we're checking out the latest and greatest flagship smartphone from Google.
The search giant has partnered up with LG on this Nexus 4 smartphone, and is the first phone to ship with the latest iteration of Google's mobile OS, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
I'm based in Australia, and was refreshing the Google Play store page every 15 minutes or so on the launch day, November 13, and was lucky enough to score one in the huge buying rush for one. It was only after I had secured a Nexus 4 handset and began reading online that others missed out, that I discovered they sold out in Australia in less than 20 minutes. The Nexus 4 sold out in the UK in 15 minutes, and lasted just 35 minutes in the US.
Google's Nexus 4 is the fourth Nexus-branded smartphone released with the first one manufactured by HTC and dubbed Nexus One. The second and third Nexus smartphones were dubbed Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus, respectively, and were both manufactured by Samsung. LG were chosen as the fourth manufacturer, for the best Nexus yet.
Read on and find out why I think the Nexus 4 is the best smartphone in the world.
