The specs of the Nexus 4 was known for quite a few weeks before its official announcement. What was not known was how much Google was going to price it. At $299 for the 8GB and $349 for the 16GB version, Google has surprised everyone which such a tempting price.
The pricing of the Nexus 4 has baffled many people who are wondering how Google and LG are selling such a powerful device at such a low price.
If you are wondering how the Nexus 4 stacks up against other Android super-phones and the almighty iPhone 5, below is a small chart comparing the devices “on paper” -:
There is no overall winner here. While the Lumia 920 has arguably the best camera in all the above phones, the HTC One X+ has the best display.
But, which smartphone is the best for me? Which one should I buy during the holiday season?
The answer is completely subjective. If you love iOS, then stick to the iPhone 5. If you are an Android lover, the Nexus 4 with its tempting price is the winner. If you are an artist or a student who takes notes on-the-go, the Note 2 will be perfect for you. If you are one of the few Nokia loyalists left and are looking for a stunning camera phone, pick up the Lumia 920.
If you have already invested in one of the three major mobile ecosystems, stick to it. Otherwise, if you switch over to a new mobile platform, you will have to invest again in apps and games that you have already paid for once.
