LG Nexus 4
The 16 GB LG Nexus 4 mobile phone is iconic because it opened the floodgates for consumers who love phones that use the stock Android OS but sacrifice nothing in terms of hardware and build quality. Launching first in 2012, the Nexus 4 was a successful collaboration between Google and LG, which was widely received and lauded for its simple but elegant design inside and out.Software
Out of the box, the Nexus 4 came with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and contained virtually no 'bloatware', or software and apps that manufacturers throw in for added functionality but often bog down performance due to constantly running in the background even when not really in use. Android 4.2 debuted Quick Settings, which enabled users to toggle certain settings like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on the notification shade, and users could also place widgets on the lock screen. Moreover, gesture typing is available as well on this LG phone, and its compact size makes for easy one-handed use even when typing long messages.Hardware
The Nexus 4 has a slightly curved screen design; this makes edge swiping gestures more ergonomic. The rest of the body is a combination of glass and metallic plastic bands on the sides. The 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro ensures that apps launch and react quickly, while images and video remain smooth and crisp. The 2 GB of RAM ensures it can switch between apps without delay and handle multitasking. The Nexus 4 also has a non-removable 2,100 mAh battery, which can power this cost-effective LG mobile phone for up to 15 hours of talk time.Display and Camera
The Nexus 4 has a 4.7-inch 720p display that employs IPS technology for a great contrast ratio and colour vibrancy. The screen’s relatively compact size compared to current releases make it appealing for those with small hands or people who simply want a small, pocketable phone that they can easily operate with one hand. The rear camera is an 8 MP affair that can capture images with excellent dynamic range in good lighting environments. Take selfies anywhere with the 1.3 MP front camera featuring digital zoom and filters.
