Comparing an s2 to an s3 is like comparing the nexus s 4g to the n4 though. There different classes of phones. To me touchwiz is just more user friendly. Like I said I like my n4 and I can see why a lot of people like it. But it wasn't the life changing experience some people make it out to be and after using it a few days I really missed my s3. I use my s3 as my everyday phone and just break out the n4 to play around with every now and then.

Does anyone know how to get Flash player on the Nexus 4? I'm assuming there will already be a thread for this.

Any explanation would have to be significantly "dumbed down" I'd imagine.

Default Buy it!

I owned an Atrix 2 before I got my Nexus 4. The Atrix is a mighty fine phone BUT it has all the attendant Samsung crapware. AND it was tied to AT&T. (I only still have AT&T because of reception issues). The Nexus 4 -while called vanilla by some - is a sleek non-crapware fast, reliable, and visually stunning phone. I want the pure Android experience and the immediate updates which I could never get on the Atrix 2 because it was last years model for Samsung. No LTE? you are correct! Does it really matter? I haven't cared since I live in the land of nod when it comes to reception. Love the phone. Buy the phone. BE the phone.... Oops. Got carried away,,,,

Me neither, but if it's a big sticking point for anyone, wait a few weeks, rumour has it an LTE 32GB version is coming out.

  1. Vanilla Android - Pure with no manufacture overlay.
  2. Google Spec'd hardware - Hardware spec'd to Google preferences.
  3. Priority software updates - You get the updates before the non Nexus devices.
  4. Awesome looks - It's a Q-Smartphone. Similar to those Q-Cars. No one knows about it and just how powerful this thing is!
  5. Very exclusive - I know no one personally that has one and I've not seen anyone else use one. There not in the stores! I like that.

Yes there's other phones out there but they are a lot more money. Are they worth the extra cash? Meh.

Go grab one. Simple really.

I love number 5. I only know one other person that has the nexus 4. I love when people ask me "what is that phone. I have never seen it before?"

I'm planning to buy the Nexus 4 for these reasons:
* No manufacturer overlays (skins; touchwiz, Sense, motoblur etc.)
* faster upgrades (Motorola once refused to upgrade a phone simply because it was too difficult to integrate motoblur into the upgrade)
* no encrypted bootloader
* price = $299.00 off-contract (why don't other manufacturers/carriers follow this example?)
