The Nexus 4 is the latest Android flagship phone, this one manufactured by LG. It packs a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM and a 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 HD display. Rounding out the specs, you'll find an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel rear-facing camera, 8GB or 16GB of internal memory, wireless charging and NFC.
Google uses the "Nexus" brand to showcase best of breed hardware with the latest version of its Android operating system and the Nexus 4 packs Android 4.2 - aka Jelly Bean. Reviewers lauded the OS for its snappy operation, panoramic photo capability, new keyboard and voice search options (better, they insisted, than Apple's Siri). They loved the hardware too, but had two major gripes. The first was the relatively short battery life. The second was a lack of 4G mobile broadband. On a flagship phone, the lack of 4G is pretty surprising - but if you can overlook it, most reviewers were more than satisfied with the latest Android heavyweight.
