Default The N4 has nipples now. Kinda.

Looks like LG and Google made a slight change to the back of the N4.

Got mine around the 15th ish of March and mine didn't include nipples although some say theirs did that shipped around the same time.


Did Google And LG Silently (And Subtly) Update The Nexus 4's Design?

I disagree with the article in link regarding muting the phone. More likely to reduce the phone slipping off flat surfaces.

I would agree with both, without them it is both slippery and muted on a smooth surface. Being that the phone is very loud, I kinda like the "mute feature" . The slipperiness is another matter.

Nope. They are miniscule tbh, I don't really see how they'd actually be much use at all.

I assume that those little bumps are just there to prevent the phone from sliding everywhere?

If you look closely at the picture in the OP, it appears the nipples are on the edge of the outer band and not on the back itself.

Yeah, but I'm not sure how much they replace when you have a shattered back? I bet they don't pick the glass out and replace just that?

Maybe they should've just put the speaker at the bottom so that the speakerphone doesn't become 50% volume when I put it on a table.... which is kind of the point of using speakerphone so I don't have to hold the phone in my hand.

But given its quirks I still love my N4.

Default UK Nexus 4 shipping with updated case?

If you have received your new UK Nexus 4 in the last week, please could you let us know if it has the nipples or not and whether it was 16gb or 8gb version.

Tnx

I just bought my gf a nexus because she liked mine so much. It has the nipples, two on the bottom only, but the camera lens is exactly the same. I held them up next to each other and the opening is the exact same size. I don't know who came up with that but its bogus.

i think its bull

i spent two months waiting on my bumper case, and the scratches i got on the back from just laying it on my desk, were on the top to the right of the camera lense... the bottom never scratched....

they should have put it all around and we can have it naked and not suffer.
