With all the advantages and shortcomings that the Google Nexus 4 displays, perhaps its best feature is the low price. Add in very powerful processor, a display with a big diagonal and great pixel density, and the latest version of Android, and you get an offer that is hard to resist.
However, even with the unstoppable performance and more-than-pleasant user experience, there are certain shortcomings compared to more expensive competing models. Above all, the display contrast is poor, data storage is too small, and the camera is below average.
Still, the Nexus 4 is an above-average smartphone that presents Android well to everyone willing to try it, at a low cost. At the same time, it is the ideal platform for rooting enthusiasts, and those who enjoy modifying their smartphone software-wise.
