Can Google Nexus 4 to survive from Samsung Galaxy S3 & Apple iphone 5?

 

 

The Nexus 4 is a google reference phone and the unlocked version was recently released from google play store.

The manufacturer is LG and their market share was getting lower than Apples’s iPhone recently due to new release of iPhone 5.  

I have been using it for a week after waiting almost 2 weeks. This phone has a speed and performance that can be recognized from many other smartphones.

The first impression of this phone that comes out from the box is just average feeling. It looks bigger and thicker than iPhone 5 and smaller and thinner than Galaxy S3.  

And after adding straight talk micro sim card and activation, it starts showing its strengths in many ways.

The touch feeling is smooth as other device and response of any action is instant without any delay or pause. And it has a good and high quality of camera feature too.

The output of sound or music player is not that good which is minus to this device. As you have already got an information on the Straight Talk, it can support up to HSPA+ that is slower than LTE 4G but data transaction has no issue  with proper speed.

The weird thing from speed test(speedtest.net app) is it gets only less than 100kbps for downloading. But the internet browsing speed was fairy fast enough than normal 3G speed.

For the more , when it starts the wifi hotspot, the download speed was more than 7 Mbps that was fast enough to watch youtube movies.

Also,  it has a great battery life time (2,100 mAh Lithium polymer) than any other smartphone I have ever used before. With general talking and usages of phone, the battery can stay for most of business time without any charging so far.

Overall, I am very happy to get this nexus 4 phone that finds an edge to hold a breath between Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5.
