The truth is that some of the things you listed (which are seemingly important to you) do not matter to many folks. I can survive w/o expandable storage, and I like the HD IPS+ display more than I like SAMOLED.

The Nexus One was arguably the first game-changing open Android phone. The Nexus S brought us NFC. The Galaxy Nexus brought us a huge 720p display, LTE, etc. What does the Nexus 4 bring us and what's the hype?

It lacks LTE. It lacks a microSD card. By all means except software (the inclusion of 4.2), it seems to be a step backwards. My Galaxy S3 runs the latest CM10 build, has NFC, LTE, a microSD card slot, a huge gorgeous SuperAMOLED display, decent battery life, and more. Why is the Nexus 4 so much better than that?

Can someone please explain the hype behind this phone to me?

The hype for me is simply that it is a nexus. i still have the nexus s, and although the nexus 4 looks nice, and very powerful, the fragility, the built-in battery, the no micro usb, but that's ok, i expect that of a nexus device, but these things kind of turn me off.

so i'm torn a little bit, but 16gigs only?! i mean, come on. my nexus s, which is like 3 years old, has 16g storage. and it's full. i'm not putting down 360$ for a phone that is faster, and that will be full after the first day.

the battery doesn't seem that bad, it looks like you could technically replace it, but it's just not made to be easy.

there will be no LTE even though it has an LTE chip inside that does nothing. it needs more hardware than the LTE chip in order to run LTE.

idk, the nexus 4 is nice, i get why people like it, the price point is great, nexus phones in general are awesome, if i needed only 8 or 16 gigs then i'd be getting one, but all the cons, make me iffy, and no storage, makes the decision easy, yet heartbreaking. i really want a latest nexus phone, but it can't be this one.
