I've had this phone for a few weeks now - here's a quick summary of the pros and cons as I see them:

Pros -

+ The price: first and foremost, this is the big advantage of this phone. No one would say that 279 quid is cheap (plus postage) direct from Google, but in comparison to the relative cost of other makes, this phone offers a lot for the price.
+ very fast and smooth: it really can handle anything you throw at it. The Internet speeds it can achieve are dependent upon the service provider, but they are fast. One of the first things I noticed was just how quickly it does everything, and that's still the case now.
+ The screen: nice size, good colours and good accurate sensitivity to the touch function. It looks great if you're upgrading from a cheaper phone because the details are so much clearer on a screen this size and definition. Perhaps a very slightly bit too blue on the skin tones.
+ Good quality build: it's solid, there's no flexibility or movement if you try to twist the top corners the other way from the bottom ones, and it looks nice.
+ Nice size for my average hands: my thumb can reach all four corners of the screen if I need them to, and with a bumper-style case it doesn't feel slippery.
+ The synchronization available if you have a Google plus account is great (this might apply to most phones, but it took a matter of seconds to put all my phone contacts and calendar details onto it), and the Google Chrome browser added all my bookmarks.
+ It comes already unlocked.
+ It has a good qulity music player. Having suffered the Samsung player for a long time on my last phone, it's a relief to find that this one not only has good sound, but the volume goes a lot higher too.

Verified Purchase
It's pretty damn speedy with the quad-core snapdragon processor, an amazing display.
I opted for the 16 GB over the 8 GB because I like to carry a lot of music with me.
it's solid, not had any problems. the only criticism I would make is the camera isn't great.
it's the first stock android phone I've bought, and I've had no need to root it like Samsung Android phones I've used in the past

At over half the price of a Galaxy S3, Xperia Z or iPhone 5, this phone is an absolute bargain. It doesn't skimp in the specs, it's got the latest and greatest Qualcomm Sanpdragon S4 Pro chipset (which is the same as the Xperia Z, better than the S3 and iPhone5), and a healthy 2GB of RAM to ensure everything you chuck at this will run really smooth as a result.

As this is a Nexus device, there are a couple of things to expect.

1/ It will always have the latest and greatest Android version, for as long as the hardware is capable of running it. The updates are provided by Google, so there is no carrier or manufacturer delays like other phones.

2/ There is no SD card slot for adding additional storage space. This is by design in all Nexus devices, so it's worth investing in the 16GB model rather than the 8GB model.

Don't be too put off my the later, as Google have a REALLY good cloud service, Google Music fro example allows you to store 20,000 of your own songs for free on their cloud music streaming service. Picasa has no limits on number of photos you can store (as long as they are under a certain resolution), and you of course have Google Drive, Google Docs for other data.

In addition, signing into Box.com using the Android app on your Nexus4 will unlock free 50GB of cloud storage (not too many people are aware of this deal).

Back to the phone...

It looks super-sexy, with glass front and back, and the controls are all very well positioned. I love the display, it's just right, not to harsh not too subtle, the colours seem natural. I wouldn't rate the sound quality out the onboard speaker, but then I always use headphones or Bluetooth speakers, so that's not a deal-breaker for me in any regard whatsoever.

Before this phone I have owned the HTC Magic, Samsung Galaxy S and the Samsung Galaxy S2.

Android software and hardware has really moved forward over the years. I can't wait to see where they are going to go next. I sold my S2 early as I had a few niggles with it. The screen didn't fit websites as well as modern phones do. The Samsung front end for Android is rubbish and Android updates were too often delayed. I had gone through allot of effort making it sim free and full access. I installed Cyanogen which is an excellent version of Android. However a few of the builds froze my phone over time requiring a battery pull and also making me late for work once as the alarm didn't go off. Another update made the free storage on my phone unusable until I rolled back to the previous version. Luckily I had left it on my phone. Although recent Cyanogen builds have been perfectly usable my trust in them was shaken.

So when the Nexus 4 16GB came back in stock I ordered it and it arrived within a couple of days...

The screen is really pleasant to use. Websites tend to fit in an overview in a way that still keeps the text crisp and readable. Similarly with a note taking app I use, the text is just more readable, as are pdf's at 1 page per screen. The screen size helps with the keyboard, it is a size which is more forgiving of my clumsy fat fingers.

The interface is smooth. However it was also smooth with Cyanogen on my S2. If you have a phone with a pure type of Jellybean and a 1GHz plus dual core or more processor you should experience a smooth Android interface. Pre Jellybean and altered Android never got this quite right. I don't have any regular apps to test the speed of this device.
