    Hello guys,

    I have Galaxy S3 at this moment and I was thinking on getting the new Nexus 4. The problem is that is sold out in Google Play. There is a guy selling a sealed Nexus 4 for $460. Is it worth it to get it for that price in the street?... should I wait for Google to have it in stock?....

    Have you thought about buying it from T-Mobile? They are selling it for 499, but if something goes wrong, at least you have a place to return it.

    It's all a matter of opinion for you. Do you like your S3? Can you afford to buy a phone at $460? Many options are available for this. I personally would probably pay $425 tops for the Nexus 4 16 GB, considering the fact that after taxes and shipping it costs about $392 anyway, that may swing you either way! Hope that helps!

    If I buy the Nexus 4 in Google it would be $350 plus shipping... maybe something around $375. The problem is that there are not available in Google.

    I like my S3 but I also like the pure Android experience. Thats the main reason in buying the Nexus 4

    Couldn't you flash CM 10.1 to your S3? CM is pretty close to the pure android experience.

    I tried the nexus 4 but in the end stuck with my s3. As many people said, it is a matter of personal opinion a to be honest I actually missed some of the touch wiz features (I know I am one of the few)

    Ok so I got the Nexus 4... my question is

    All I have to do is take the simcard out of my Galaxy S3 and into the Nexus 4?... there is nothing else?.... no special settings in the Nexus or anything?

    I heard some guy telling me that I needed to make some adjustments to the Access Points to make the Internet work good.
