Google Nexus 4 review - so here it is, the all new smartphone from Google and LG is released and ready to hit the stores. Google Nexus 4 is the successor of the wonderful Samsung Galaxy Nexus which became one of the most popular Android phones around the world. As we take a closer look at the new Nexus 4 phone we can positively say it will manage to keep and probably expand Google's positions in smartphone market. Google Nexus 4 is fast and very capable smartphone with amazing 4.7-inch curved HD display. The 320ppi screen has resolution of 1280 x 768 and has scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protective cover. The side edges of the Nexus 4 are round and they make a very nice smooth transition to the display itself, looks and feels very nice. It is definitely one of the best displays on a phone out there, very crisp with true vivid colors.
 The hardware inserted in the Nexus 4 is cutting-edge. Fast 1.5 GHz Quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM assure the fast and smooth operation of the phone. And the 3D graphics support will give you an amazing experience on the huge 4.7-inch display. Storage - the Nexus 4 is going to be offered with 16GB of built-in memory.

 One interesting feature of the Google Nexus 4 smartphone is its camera. Of course it has two cameras on board, but the more exciting is the rear 8.0-megapixel autofocus camera. Google calls it Photo Sphere camera. It makes great stills and Full HD 1080p videos and has the capability of making stunning 360° panoramas. The interface is very intuitive and it is easy to navigate through different camera features. One great feature of the camera is the option of zooming in and out while shooting a video, the continuous focus will take care for the rest.

 So what is the verdict for the new Galaxy Nexus 4. Well it is very capable device and it will be in great competition with some of Samsung and HTC smartphones and of course the iPhone 5. The charismatic Google logo and the quality hardware of the Nexus 4 are definitely going to make it a real best seller no matter the high selling price of around $500 without contract. Probably it will be more appealing when offered with contracts by some of the big carriers with an affordable price tag.
