Google Nexus 4 Smartphone Review 2.0 - Two Months with Google's Superstar Smartphone

Final Thoughts 2.0




Another final thoughts, this time two months into using the Nexus 4. I can wrap it up in a sentence, but I'll elaborate - the sentence first: buy one. I still recommend to just blindly buy one, they're that good. If you're a huge Google service user like me, you're going to fall so much in love it's not funny.


iOS users will find it harder, as they'd need to have a Gmail account, use Maps, Drive, and all of the rest of the apps to really 'feel' the Nexus 4 life. The openness of Android really comes through on the Nexus 4 as you're not stuck with some manufacturers UI, but the true, unadultered Android experience.


The problem I now have is what else can a phone do for me to want to upgrade? I'm going to find it incredibly hard, if not impossible to ever consider another iPhone because I'm so intertwined with Google. The same goes for Microsoft and their Windows Phone platform.


We're not really looking at a future of Samsung versus Apple, but more Google versus Apple. When Google release their Project Glass, we're going to see them have their 'iPhone moment', and they will really be an incredibly powerful company - much more so than they are today.


The Nexus 4 is an incredible piece of kit, and just unbelievable that it's offered at $299 and $349 for the 8GB and 16GB versions respectively. Get one, now.
