Rated 1 out of 5 by Great phone but not for long Really enjoyed this phone for 15 months. Good screen, like the camera and it was easy to use. After 15 months it is dead. It only has a one year warranty so if you live in Canada it doesn't even cover your contract length. February 9, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by great pics, but system problems this phone was great, until the system upgrade to 4.1.1. at which point I lost my earpiece and microphone, then eventually my ringer. after a lot of research I fixed it by factory resetting, losing all my pics etc... worked for half a year, until upgrade 5... same problem, again factory reset... have had to do that twice in 6 months and I am not happy. On a brighter note, this phone takes amazing pictures. the details are so crisp and clear that you'll notice things you didn't know were there when taking the picture. December 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Long lasting and full-featured I received a Nexus 4 in May 2013. Purchased a standard protective case and I don't drop my phone - no damage to it so far. It's been regularly updated and each OS installation has completed smoothly and problem-free. Use is easy and logical. Extremely customizable for every area that counts. Battery seems to only last about 6 hours for me, but that may be from high use and network-connection scanning. I plan to stay with the Nexus line when I need to upgrade, but this phone has plenty of years left in my opinion. December 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good phone overall but screen broke after 1.5 yrs Pros: great features for the price; feels nice holding it in my hand. Cons: after about 1.5 years of gentle use half of screen became unresponsive (no dropping or water damage, phone gently used in bumper) - it turned out to be a common problem for this model, however the initial warranty was over and would not cover it. I would recommend the phone overall but just be aware of the issue with the screen. October 31, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Would never buy it if I had the choice This phone was a replacement through my insurance company for losing my previous phone. It immediately started cracking and heated up whenever I used it. Eventually, the screen stopped worked after about 6 months. So I had my insurance company replace it (for a fee). About 3 weeks later, I dropped it on a carpet floor and it cracked. Now the screen won't work. Lovely. I hate the design and I hate the poor battery life and I hate the poor quality. I have had several smart phones and they were way more durable than this (I never had to replace it for breaking down like this). I would never have bought this phone if I had a choice and I would rather buy a different phone than get it replaced again with insurance. The amount I pay for replacing multiple phones will be equivalent to getting a new and better phone anyways. October 24, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality phone terrible customer service I got a nexus 4 with my phone plan because it seemed like a great deal. This was a terrible decision. The battery life is short but you can live with it. Someone thought the phone would look pretty with glass on the back and to save costs decided a cheap glass would be fine. It broke after a few months. After about 11 months of having the phone which I had initially been relatively happy with my soft keys stopped working and I would occasionally get ghost touches. Within another week or two the whole bottom 15% of the screen stopped working. I could no longer dial calls and could only reply to texts but couldn't get into messaging. I tried resetting my phone to factory default to no effect. I looked it up online and saw this is a relatively common problem however, when I called LG they claimed there were no known problems with the phone. After sending my phone in it was sent back without a repair claiming there was water damage. This seemed hard to believe as the worst it had ever experienced was being in my pocket during occasional drizzles. The way I see it water damage in that case is another sign of poor build quality (and regardless wasn't the cause of this common problem as I discovered with further research) and if not just more evidence of poor customer service. I plan on never buying an lg product again and would advise others to avoid lg at all costs September 17, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED Bought this phone a year ago and to say im disappointed is putting it mildly. this phone constantly heats up whenever its in use for a period of time. at about the six month stage it started shutting down or the screen just wouldnt come on when promted. the battery life is poor especially when in use. today it just shuts off and wont come back on while Im using it. u cant do a battery pull or anything...So sorry i bought it September 12, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor battery/charge I bought a new Nexus 4 one year ago. It froze up without any warning after 6 months, such that it was no longer possible to turn it on. Many hours contacting Google and LG was fruitless as far as recovering the phone. It was replaced on warranty, but it took a FULL 3 WEEKS before the replacement arrived. They only had refurbished replacements due to no longer making the phone. I have been using the replacement now for 6 months. It works, but it only holds a charge for about 1-3 hours if in use. It may possibly last 12 hours if I don't use it at all, but not always. (The original phone was better on batteries, but still usually had to charge it twice to get thru the day. In contrast, my former phone (Samsung Galaxy S Captivate) would last all day.) I now have to carry a battery pack to supplement in order to get thru the day. I decided not to try to claim another warranty after the problem with the first effort. I am seriously considering though buying a new battery and replacing it myself, which will void the warranty. But at this point I have pretty much given up on getting help from Google/LG. August 29, 2014
