    I just got mine today, and I am impressed. I went to the AT&T Store and had everything transferred to a micro sim and have had no issues. I was on an unlimited data plan on my iPhone and the reps at AT&T found the equivalent HSPA+ unlimited data plan and added me to that. I love the interface, and I the build quality is impressive. I'm still trying to decide if I want to use the bumper case or the Rearth case. I'm going to swap them out to see which one suits me best. I'm enjoying my first Android experience though and while I haven't sold my iPhone 5 yet, I'm pretty sure I will.

    Prior to this phone I had the Sony Ericsson X10, which I bought when it came out. I think it was their first android phone, and man what a phone it was. Slow, buggy, bloated, and just overall an awful phone that had infamously slow updates. Resistive screen, the list goes on. This much needed update is like a dream for me.

    Typing this using the touch gesture keyboard, takes some time getting used to but it's really fast.

    Got my N4 yesterday, my previous phone was a Desire HD.

    The good: It is gorgeous, the build feels smooth and expensive in the hand, the screen comes so close the edge of the unit and the clarity is miles better than the DHD. Also, and this one is a bit daft, I love the effect when you tap the power button to turn off the screen, just like an old CRT, wonderful!
    The bad: When the phone is flat on its back, say on a desk, the ringtone is lower as the speaker is flat on the surface.

    Had my N4 for a week and and still loving it. I had the iphone4 and 4s the last 2 years and I don't miss them one bit. Happily sold my 4s to cover the cost of the N4.

    Screen is great and makes the iPhone look so small.

    Google's ego system is as good as apples and probably better in some areas. I had about 100 apps on my iPhone and I've easily replaced them on the N4.

    The feel of the phone is premium quality. I'm used to all glass phones and thankfully I haven't drop one yet.

    My contract is due to end in 10 months and when it does I will go to a pay monthly tariff which is half of what I pay now and stick to future nexus phones and buy them sim free with no branding.

    That's just a place holder, once you add pictures to your contacts or Google or Facebook or however you get them on there the persons picture will show up in the notification

    Just putting this into perspective. When I meant I felt a huge performance increase switching from one phone to the next, I meant a REALLY HUGE improvement:

    I never bothered to root the X10 and take screenshots with it because ugh I just didn't want to deal with it anymore.

    I got this phone during Christmas so I’m about 6 weeks in, coming from blackberry bold.. Widgets are great, google now, new York times and the ability to create a text widget and just scroll through that is also fun. Signal quality is usually good, I have an issue with t-mobile that sounds like it’s common: occasionally the phone will drop coverage when asleep, once you unlock the phone and play around for a second the signal reconnects, usually with 4-5 bars. Swipe keyboard kicks ***, the camera is OK but you’re still gonna see some blurry pictures sometimes.

    My big complaint is that the phone is fragile and even with an iron clad protection plan there’s no garuntee of a speedy phone replacement since google/LG can’t make these fast enough. The back of the phone is so slick that it will glide across a very smooth surface (bathroom tiles) without anything touching it, this is dangerous, I have a case but stopped using it because the phone looks and feels so great without the case, but I’m always careful.

    Pocket Casts costs 3 bucks and is amazing, you can download podcasts for offline listening and it even auto deletes after you finish. Comes with a pause/back/forward widget that also shows up in lock screen to solve your unlocking problem. I can also pause/play through apple's newest earphones, although the double click features and volume dont work with the apple 'phones. Perhaps your non-apple headpohnes have more features. I found the inline remote (pause/play) works with pocket casts, pandora and G music, no go for stitcher or ESPN radio.

    This phones battery life is wonderful IMO.
    I have about five hours screen on time. I'm coming from a nexus s 4g so maybe I'm just out of touch but this is awesome. I love this phone

    I miss having an expandable battery, and after having an AMOLED screen the blacks on the N4 look awful. Other than those two things it's awesome.

    Whats up, Im new here. Just bought the Nexus 4 Friday and started using it Sunday and today.
    Im coming from an iPhone 4, and a iPhone 3g before that. It was time for something new and different as the IOS platform was becoming stale to me. I was debating between this and the Nokia Lumia 920, but I got this for free on a 2 year contract so it was hard to pass up.

    Plus - The screen, size, weight, are all excellent. The looks of this unit is really sharp and I actually like the back, not as noticeable in real life though. I also really like the Google integration.
    Meh - The camera is average, I find it is really sensitive to slight movements and also moving objects in the photos blur easily.
    Negative - The battery life seems to be pretty poor. Playing a few rounds of Angry Birds Star Wars, and browsing the Pulse app seems to really suck down the battery. I am a heavy user though so its kind of a tough call.

    An odd note... When I hold the device upright and tap the nexus logo, it sounds like something is loose inside... Anyone else ? Or is this a problem and I should swap it before its too late?

    Power note- I have screen brightness on auto, location services off, and have downloaded an app called Easy Battery Saver to see if it will help. Im running that app on Intelligent mode for now, doesn't seem to push messages though so I dont know how long that will last.

    Maybe will take time later to right more but just to make a quick first comment on my Nexus 4 that I've been using for a week now.... I REALLY like this phone!. I switched from the Vz Galaxy Nexus rooted with CM 10.1 on it and i 'm really enjoying the smoothness of the N4 with 4.2.2 Plain Jane Android on it!

    What I don't understand is why the pinch to zoom is delayed. I used show pointer location to overlay the screen at all times to test and both fingers are registered just like any other phone and it just doesn't zoom until like an inch apart...?! Why ?!?!?!?!?!?! Makes no sense.

    The odd note issue is odd and you should take it back before it is too late.

    I've read that its part of the camara's auto focus. Been discussed on this site here. I don't hear it on mine and it don't seem like a big problem. Also been discussed on with the similar replies.

    Just had 24 hours with my nexus 4 and it's been great.
    Before making up my mind to buy this, I was excited and worried at the same time. I heard all the good things about nexus 4 from people and there were also people complaining about some problems with their device. Things like battery life and noise while calling bugged me the most.
    When I actually got it and began to use it, all my worries were gone. Battery was superb. Even with constant usage, I was left with ample amount of battery. There were no problems with the hardware as well.
    Since I was coming from iPhone 4, Android environment was pretty new for me, but so far it is pretty exciting.
    So, for anyone who is looking to submerge themselves into the world of android, nexus 4 is a best device to start.

    I've had my N4 since last Friday, and I'm loving it! My previous phone was a Droid X (no, not X2, the original X), and the difference between them is night and day. Most noticible thing right away was the weight difference. The X is a brick compared to the N4, which is like a feather, despite the N4 being physically larger. The butter-smooth scrolling and lightning fast responsiveness is also a joy. The fact I was able to drop Verizon and switch to T-mobile's $30 4g plan is just icing on the cake.
    I'm sure any recently released phone would have run circles around my old Droid X, but I'm really happy so far.

    Trying to think of a negative.........maybe the fact I've had to baby the N4, especially the glass back, because with the X I was more or less tossing it around the room because I really didn't care about it anymore.
