    So you got your brand new N4 and want to show it off to your friends.....

    What do you show them first? And what get's the 'wow - that's pretty cool'?

    Are there any features of the phone that are best of show? How about apps that really pop? Or something that no other phone can do, perhaps photosphere?

    Competing systems are Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone5.

    I've got my Nexus 4 and I'm looking for ideas that are sure to cause phone envy.

    Against the SGS 3 your out of luck. With the i5 you can start with photo sphere. Takes 20 seconds to do a room

    show how beautiful the back is (make sure you get it under the right lighting so you can see the cool effect). also, theme it so that it looks completely unique.

    Best way? Surround your friend with a lot of soft pillows so when they drop it, your phone won't crack.

    Show off the shiny back followed by someone with butter fingers dropping it. It would be a real attention grabber seeing everyone's face as beauty crashes to the ground. Pray its in one piece.
    In all seriousness just show of its beautiful looks.

    Omg just don't drop any phone period! Then show them how nice it looks compared to that thin piece of plastic they call a galaxy. Then tell them how much you pay a month. Then call them when you get an update 6 months before they do. Then let them hold it again so they can take it all in again. Then ask them to drop their phone just to prove you shouldn't drop any phone ever. Then and only then, let them tell you about the good things about their phone proving their is no better phone when the specs are so close. Then compare peepees since that's what you're doing anyways.

    Haha I just thought about it. I don't know how many of you read the Bible but there is a proverb that says "pride comes before the fall". In this case the fall may break your phone. Haha! Be humble people. Don't show off

    If you're so against the N4...why do you hang out here so often? Just to sing the praises of the SGSIII? And try to convert the heathens? Serious question.

    You must be on Verizon. I will take the high road and not talk down the n4.

    You can also show off how easily you can customize an icon

    They lined up everyone at their works mobile's (for those with Nexus 4's) took photo's of it and texted it to me to torture me with it.

    Well, my showing off is far more on function than form. Don't get me wrong, everyone I have shown this phone loves the look. But they are impressed by the vanilla Android, how fast and zippy the phone is, how incredible the screen looks, and Google Now, especially with voice commands, just stuns them.

    This thread made me LOL. Showing off... fkn dumb. Just show them the features of the phone and how much you can do with your little toy. After that exercise some humility and point them to where they can get 1 as cheap as you did

    Due to the explicitly stupid nature of this discussion, I can intuitively predict a beautiful S3vsN4 happy ending or something of the like.

    Did you read my post at all? All of the sarcasm was directed at the galaxy. What in that post made you think I'm for the s3 on Verizon? Please tell me. Seeing how I have the n4 it's impossible for me to be on Verizon. There's not one single sentence in that post that says I'm against the amazing n4 or the awesome s3. Once again it's a pissing contest that I don't want to enter. I use stalls even to pee. I don't care about whose is bigger or better

    What I don't get is WHY you want to show it off. You didn't make it, why show it off? You aren't trying to sell it, why show it off? People don't show off their phones, why show yours off?

    Yeah I know but it's not like oh man check it out, it can do all this. I asked people on the internet what was the sickest thing to show this off for some odd reason. Just pulling it out to use it and someone asks is the only time someone has shown it and the only time i've shown someone something. And hey you know what a Kyocera is/ Weird, i've never heard of that brand before until I got one of their phones for cheap.
