The most impressive part of the phone to me was the battery. Itís the same battery thatís inside the Optimus G but I found that the Nexus 4 has even better performance
On my iPhone 5, Iím lucky if I can get through 10 hours with heavy to moderate use. With the Nexus 4, I was able to go 14 hours before needing to recharge the phone ó and this was with tons of open apps, lots of online communications, tons of data downloads and even some quality time with Grand Theft Auto III.
Iím not sure if it was Android 4.2 and Googleíl own optimizations that led to the increased battery life ó or if it was the lack of a 4G radio (more on that below) ó but this is one smartphone that wonít leave you searching for a place to get extra juice.
