    Default Re: Nexus 4 as "media only" device

    in all seriousness tho, I don't wanna make the mistake I did with the N7. And yes, it is without a doubt a nice device. I just find myself not using it like I thought I would. And as I said before, for being a home media tablet, I find myself preferring my home 52" LCD over a 7" device. And out on the road, I can't see myself pocketing this thing. So as nice as the N7 is, it's not something I been using frequently. I don't want to make new mistakes buying stuff I won't use, so I want to make sure a N4 is practical enough. Which I think it is because of the portability, the abundance of wifi (work/home), and the off contract price. My only problem is that I would never have a real need to connect it since I'm pretty much happy with Verizon and what I pay now for unlimited data. All together, my grandfathered bill comes out to $87 a month (taxes included) for one line with unlimited everything which is not too shabby for a premium carrier. Once I upgrade on contract, that # easily goes over $100.

    Does that allow you to tether devices too? Because you could always do that with your old phone if needed.

    But I don't know honestly how happy I would be dragging around 2 devices. You may be better off buying a Note 2 or waiting for the SGS4.

    I cant stand large devices. For me, my perfect phone is a 4" to 4.3" screen. I can't stand these large phones these days. But that is just personal preference and not about carrying ability. I'm sure a GS3 will fit in my pocket. I just prefer iphone size for my primary device. That's why I use a Droid Inc 2. For me that's about as perfect as you can get. Everything else these days in that size are always mid range as far as specs, camera, screen res, processor speed, etc. As for the N4, it would be a sacrifice to move up to a 4.7" screen, but then again, when its not your primary device, you accept a little compromise.

    The N4 is a perfect size IMO. I came from a SGS2 which I believe was 4.3 and with the thinner bezel I can't even tell the difference. I think you would like the size. It fits nicely in my pocket and is still pretty good for one handed use.

    Well this phone is pretty big. Much larger than the iPhone but smaller than any good other android phones on the market right now.
    You'll get used to the large size of the nexus soon enough.i an
