    Default nexus 4 radio chip?

    any ideas if the radio chip is good on this nexus? read a few posts here which basically said that LG has a bad track record for radio chips and the reception/signal might be rubbish

    If LG is using a Sony camera sensor in the Nexus 4, it's entirely possible that they're using a different radio chip than usual too. It's all about supplies and what's affordable and what's available.

    IE: one reason to use a different part in the Nexus 4 than their own flagship phones is because they wouldn't have enough of part X left over after using them in the flagship phones to have enough left for the Nexus 4. So they go with a part from a different manufacturer so that they can produce enough of all their phones at a steady rate without worrying about part shortages. Another reason would be to cut costs if the difference in performance is negligible.

    We'll have to see when they go on sale. How would anyone (other than reviewers) know?
