does anyone know, if the glass on the back does break, is it easy to replace? is it just a matter of a couple screws or do yo have to remove attached electronic components? how much does a replacement back cost? they should come out with a plastic one, it seems like that would be an easy thing to do
Wait, wasn't Chrono being ironic? I mean, DleRium did say that the Nexus 4 is a match for the iPhone 5. Given the price difference and the fact that Nexus 4 is unlocked pentaband, matching the latest iPhone is a clear victory for Nexus 4.
Nice review but u didnt address the question on everyone's mind. Were u able to check into foursquare faster than everyone else including your gf?
Thanks, DLeRium. I tell ya, every time I decide I can deal with Android, I read something like this that reminds me of how much Android doesn't "click" with my brain as much as iOS does. I'm switching to TMobile and Straight Talk by the end of the month and have been floating the idea of just keeping my iPhone 5 and dealing with EDGE until TMo launches LTE in Charlotte. Argh!
9) Issues/Bugs: I notice my speaker crackles sometimes when pressing a button that's supposed to create an audible tone. I work in vibrate 99% of the time, but I find it odd. It's like as if the speaker turns on to emit sound but since I'm at vibrate, it emits a 0db sound. The fact that it even turns on is like wtf?
FYI there is a gallery short cut swipe from right to left in the camera app. there is also a fast delete. pinch inward to make the picture smaller and slide up or down and it deletes it.
with lawsuits.I'm curious as how Apple will respond with the last couple of salvos from Google.
but in fluidity I don't think Project Butter is as good as a fully GPU accelerated UI.
- Notification toggles. Decent, but it's not a real toggle like the CM or Samsung or HTC toggles.
Makes you sound like a lunatic fan regurgitating the PR being spoon fed to you by your parent company. Check out the latest version of iOS on two year old hardware- it's still fully GPU accelerated and choppy as hell.
Yea it looks like a really nice phone, but in a lot of ways, its a minor upgrade over the gnex. I was, and still am waiting for another nexus to come out that blows everything else away. I love the fact that this phone can be had for 300, but i would love if another premium nexus comes out from samsung that costs a little more.
Since ive had my galaxy nexus, ive always envied how much better the sgs3 feels in the hand - its so slim! Even with a case on, the difference is pretty big - and the sgs3 has a bigger battery than the gnex - so what does that tell you?
Give a another nexus phone!!! Werent there plans for multiple nexii this year?
We DO have multiple Nexus products, the 7, 10, 4, that little orby thingy. No one ever said multiple phones just multiple Nexus products.
My old iPhone 3GS that I gave out to my family is on iOS6 and the UI is still pretty zippy.
And its laggy. I'm at a school. I'm surrounded by iPhones of all generations. Older versions chug pretty heavily, even moreso than my Rom'd Droid X that I used to use.
I have an iPod Touch 4G, my mom has a 3GS I try to provide tech support, and an iPhone 5. The 3GS might lag after apps get installed left and right, but my iPod is smooth as hell.
The only time it wasn't was when I jailbroke it, but even then the iPhone 4 has more RAM than the iPod Touch, so it shouldn't be an issue.
I have enough phones to tell you what's laggy and what's not, and everything that's not a Nexus 4 I've seen lags more than my iPod and iPhone. That said it's not unusable, but it'd be nice if its faster. If I use my iDevices and go back to my SGS2, the difference is noticeable. The N4 still hiccups here and there but that may be because of widgets, but overall I think it's pretty close to the iPhone.
