Default Broke my Nexus 4, about to buy new one

So I dropped it and it's beyond repair. I got 400$ cash in hand and I'm ready to get another Nexus 4.

Smart move or should I consider other options ? I hate Samsung's touchwiz layer, otherwise I would've gotten an S4..

Z10 I do not fully trust app wise and future wise...


Help.

z10 is a great phone, but it depends on what apps you use so make sure they are available. Note that many android apps can be side loaded but still not a perfect solution. Bro has a Nexus 4 and i really like it, seeing that youre familiar it might be best to stick with it. Personally i would always try to stick with a google phone, i just cant believe the wait times that other companies have with new OS releases. Frustrating as hell...

Nexus 4.

You can't beat updates directly from Google, and not having wait for the manufacturer and carrier to push them to you.

Better hold off for the 5, cause you're not getting a 4 unless it's used, and no other Google edition phone is that inexpensive.

Best Buy and Futureshop still sell the N4 here. You can buy it outright from Koodo (cell provider).

Best option, buy the N4 now. Hold onto it in case the N5 release is crap. Return it and buy the N5 if it's good.

I was gonna get my hands on a N4 from Virgin. I heard about the N5, but two months without a phone has been rough -- I don't wanna wait another 2 months.

I'll grab one tomorrow.



That being said, if the N5 is anything like the N4, it's gonna be incredible. I'd like for the build quality to feel more sturdy. Perhaps metallic compounds of some sorts for the frame/bezel. Better battery and a removable one at that, even better camera, better cpu, removable storage card...

****... How is the N5 lookin on paper ?

Most of the rumors focus on the N5 having a top of the line SoC and being around 5" screen size. I would say expect the same build quality (LG style). If they improve the camera and battery life, keep the price low, I might get one.

The other big rumor is the camera is supposed to be a big improvement.

Thing is you can't return phones if you've used X amount of call time or own the phone for over a few weeks. None of this garantees me I'll even see the N5 whilst owning that N4.

You can always reset the call time

N5 should be announced shortly, they might even launch on the 14th.

The only reason I said buy an N4 is that it's super cheap right now. We expect the N5 to be cheap but there's no guarantee it'll be as low as the N4 when it launched.

I thought they had some special way of finding out

You're right about the phone being cheap.

My Galaxy Note 2 died on me and I'm on a Nexus 4 - I'm not sure what people are referring to when they hate Samsungs additional stuff, because in terms of useability and general speed, the Note 2 is leagues ahead.

I had to download random widgets to make sure I could get wifi/screen rotation enabled, whereas Samsung has this right at the top.

When it comes to devices with this much power you don't even notice any performance decreases due to this type of thing.

I do miss the stupid Note 2. I hate the virtual buttons, they take up precious screen real estate. I liked having a button at the bottom I could press to check if I have any messages on my status bar - with the Nexus 4 you have to press this awkward side button to wake the thing up.

I'd go S4 or Note 3.

I feel the same way. I'm still on a Touchwiz based rom on my GS4 even though I could go to a Google edition rom at any time. Touchwiz may have sucked in the past but it's just not the case anymore.

I don't think you can buy a Nexus 4 anymore.

I'm waiting on what the N5 brings and my switch to that.
