    Keep in mind, the S3 is a beast of a phone. If you decide to go that route, you can get one extremely cheap with all the holiday deals going on. The N4 is a great phone but the S3 has beem out for longer and has had more time to be integrated into its software. I own one and can vouch for what an amazing device it is. On my most recent battery charge, it lasted me over 16hrs with over 5hrs of screen on time. This was with LTE on the entire time.

    That is true but the Nexus is a tad better but still lacks in some places than the S3.

    You guys need to quit banging on this guy. He just jumped on the forum for his first time.

    To the O.P.:

    Keep the Nexus 4 if you don't want a mobile contract , don't care about being on Verizon, and want a beautifully designed phone.

    Sell the Nexus 4 if you want LTE on Verizon, and get the DNA or whatever Samsung they have, and are prepared to pay 50% more for service.

    Do not worry about the heat throttling, or battery issues you read about. My Nexus 4 runs like a champ and I'm very happy with it.

    1) Benchmarks aren't quite optimized for Android 4.2, as evidenced by how well the Optimus G performs.

    2) Benchmarks are silly.
    That certainly appears to be the case. Why would the Optimus run faster with the overhead of. the Touchwiz UI?

    Because the Optimus G runs 4.1, not 4.2. Also, it's Samsung that uses TouchWiz, not LG; I don't know what LG calls their "skin."

    Not sure if I entirely understand what you meant to say here. I will say however that pretty much no android apps take advantage of dual-core processors just yet. With all the leeway 2GB of RAM gives you u definitely wouldnt be disappointed. My phone is snappy as fuh. I never notice even the slightest amount of lag.. we're talking about a device that seriously flies here. No phone out offers a noticeable increase in speed over the SG3. Even ppl that rarely disagree will only say something like "the phone im reviewing was the tiniest bit more snappier than the S3 but nothing you'd really notice in daily use."

    So you just keep Nexus 4 now?

    Since you have the Nexus 4 already why not keep it? I mean it's easier to just have it than the S3 unless you want more storage or LTE. Those are pretty much deal breakers for the Nexus 4 if you really want those.

    Well the only reason i'm getting it is because it's cheap. I know that the Droid DNA and the S3 are comparably as good but the price of it is amazing for a recent phone!
    I bought it because it was cheap too. I wish I'd waited a year to upgrade since I bought the gnex last year (and my contract for that phone is still running). Now my verizon phone functions as a free wifi hotspot more than anything else. i don't think i've used it outside of that function since i got the nexus 4.

    You make a good point but i just don't like how people are saying the gs3 is better even on thought it cost more and is either on par or slower than the nexus 4 on day to day use

    I've been using my Nexus 4 for almost a month now and I love it. My phone only gets warm when I spend hours playing a game.
