    can anybody please tell me , based on their experience,, how many months or years the default battery of such a super phone lasts, as it will not have replaceable battery , as i want to use it at least for 1 yr,
    Ive had mine for nearly 3 years, charge it each day and have never had an issue.

    Point taken.

    Phil, I actually don't see much "chrome" on the case in the press pics ... looks like there's only a very thin line of trim between the front bezel and the actual screen glass. (And apparently the nexus" logo on the back.) Does it catch the light when you're handling it? Bright, or kinda subtle? Like it?

    ... Not a question, but something I'd like to see in your review. Specs lists the front camera as "1.3 MP 720p video." Woah ... unlike the N7, it will record 720p video from the front (1080p out the back for those who're wondering)! Wonder if that hi-res video will show up in Google+ Talk / Hangouts....
    It's looks like we will have to wait for the review to see if our questions are answered.

    I've had cases where my phone won't wake up and I had to pull the battery....
    or press and hold the power button for 10 seconds and the phone will reboot.

    all non removable battery device have this. nexus 7 for example.

    Hey Phil,
    The S4 Pro SoC that's used in the Nexus4 is supposed to have an integrated LTE radio on-chip correct?
    Correct. This is the most important feature that nobody is talking about......The MSM8960T SoC supports both LTE and EV-DO. There are other devices on (or coming to) Verizon that use the MSM8960T (HTC DLX/Droid DNA). Hopefully that means we will see the Nexus4 capable of running on VZW's network sometime soon. Fingers crossed.

    I'll wait a couple months for them to double the storage, just like they did for the Nexus 7. I'm hoping by that time they've enabled the LTE radios on the device as well. An unlocked, unsubsidized, 32GB Nexus 4 with VZW LTE for $349??? TAKE MY $$$!

    Someone asked this a ways back but there was no answer from Phil (or Panda) -- Does the N4 do WiFi calling on T-Mobile? This is a critical issue for me as I live in a very poor coverage area. Currently on Sprint with an Airave at home.

    Thanks

    press volume down + power button at the same time. i hope you are using nexus because that's the default. very few phones have a bit different setup

    On the Asus Transformer Tablet it's hold the recent app key down.

    Hello All, first post here come for Nexus 4 info. Currently have a Samsung Nexus S been looking to get the Samsung Nexus but have waited so long for price to drop that Nexus 4 has arrived at a cheaper price 279 versus 293.30 on Amazon, so good luck to those retailers that have a bunch of them to shift.

    Question, does the Nexus 4 have a good and quick GPS fix? Nexus S could take a minute or so then lose fix if you locked screen or changed to a different app very frustrating for a google maps junkie.

    Can you PLEASE PLEASE check for GLONASS support?

    Glonass makes a huge difference in gps precision, especially if you are living up north!
    Right now the entire Scandinavian android community are waiting for info on glonass support on the Nexus 4.
    Please download "gps test" and check if there are any satellites numbered between 65-96! Those would be glonass satellites!

    I have a Nexus 4, you have questions. Fire away.-glonass-vs-gps.jpg

    (pictured above are screenshots from gps test, with a glonass phone on the left and non-glonass on the right)

    Thanks!

    Any estimated time frame on when you'll be posting the review? I've asked about audio quality through the headphone jack a couple times now and haven't gotten an answer, so I'm guessing that's something you'll cover in the review. Thanks!

    It's lighter, and shiny, but I don't know if I'd call it chrome in the traditional sense.

    does charging your phone before it gets low increase the lifespan? Is it better to charge it more frequently so it doesn't fully discharge as often?

    Phil (thanks for doing this!),

    1. What's your thoughts on the lock screen pages? To me it seems to negate any "security" at all, since now without knowing the passcode you can see the person's emails, texts, etc.

    2. How's the screen compare to: iPhone 5, HTC One X, Galaxy S3

    3. Can you post a speed test?

    4. Can you do the following and report how it seems? On the homescreen of an iphone, swipe your finger back and forth as fast as you can and note how much lag (or lack of a lag) there is in the in the icon movements relative to your finger then do the same on the Nexus 4's app drawer

    5. Can you use a few apps on the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 4 side-by-side and report how the two phones compare?

    Thanks!

    Will the chrome accents collect scratches easily and flake or chip?
