    If Expansys or Negri ship to your country, they should be able to help you with warranty claims.

    I ordered my HTC from Hong Kong as it worked to get it thee unlocked with express shipping was the same price locked here!
    I did have a few issues but i had to mail it over there for repair, bit of a hassle, it cost not including shipping about 20 for screen or 35 for screen with all external damage fixed.
    From then on to avoid hassle i did it myself. That was only because HTC Aus repairs wouldn't touch a over sea's model (mine was india). As for your soon nexus 4 maybe, I see no issue, the warranty should hold up. You might have to check with local lg repairers to see if they can do oversea's models. LG/Google, might not show purchase area on their phone though.


    To be honest i see no issue with it, at worst you might have to send it back to the person you bought it off to get it repaired if you want to get it repaired officially.

    Don't think its going to be any more or less reliable than any other phone. Warranties are nice, but that's up to you whether or not its worth your time.

    Well if the back cracks, the warranty isn't going to cover it anyways. The manufacturer's warranty covers manufacturer defects, not accidental damage.
