    Have you had anything crash yet? I had settings crash twice when I first got it, probably the first hour, then no problems after that.

    I've had one reboot. It was mentioned with 4.2 by someone in an N7 thread too.

    I haven't had any reboots. I've had a couple apps crash, but that is kind of expected with a Nexus and having the latest software. Some developers take a couple weeks to catch up, but other than 2 or 3 apps out of the 90+ on my phone I haven't had any crashes

    I still have 7.7gb left (over 2gb was used just for TDKR game).

    Yes, the T-Mobile and Google ones are identical, software and hardware. The only difference is if you get it from T-Mobile it is locked to the T-Mobile network until you get the unlock code from them.

    Still waiting for my N4, hopefully the next stock in 3 weeks time will bring it.

    Just a point on the camera..... i currently have the nexus s, (camera and video recording pretty dire to useless.)
    I just watched my son and his wife get married, and suffered a catastrophic disaster with my camcorder, creating a massive problem for part of the service, as it happened and although they had a professional photographer.. you sometimes grab them special moments for yourself with your phone.
    Now i know its not going to be the same as a digital slr or most other dedicated cameras.... but do the N4 actually take a decent picture and more importantly a decent video recording

    Haven't gotten a chance to mess around with the camera much, but here's a picture taken w/ HDR on.

    Edit: Got resized, just going to upload on another service.

    In Bade Runner there are Androids aka Replicants and Rachael, one of the main characters, is a Nexus-6 model who believes she is human. Hence the whole Android/Nexus tie in.

    Nexus devices never had good cameras. The features their cameras have are always nice but as far as quality...yea. I guess that alone would boost the cost. That's the only thing the Nexus devices are missing every year. I really wish they would have made the camera awesome. And having a phone that has an awesome camera for video recording and pictures and going to one that doesn't but is awesome in every other area is still a tough call.

    That's what I thought too, but I have seen a few negative comments about them. I personally really like the camera.


    3 feet I think


    I'll add it to the OP since I've had it a few days now.
