    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

    how much of your 16gb have you used well i mean 12.5gb or whatever its in the end lol also idk if its been answered did tmobile include any bloatware or did it come like the one from google will? :D

    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.


    Should be available at full size now.

    I know nothing about photography really. What exactly is HDR?

    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.

    Haven't seen that movie in awhile but is that the girl that paints her face white and black stripe across her eyes?

    No, that's Pris. Rachael is the girl Harrison Ford tests at the corporate hq.

    So... how is battery life?

    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.

    I instantly recognized that intersection. I used to have family there. H&H Bagels...Zabar's...I sooo miss living there.

    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.
