    Yup still have it. The S4 has gone back in the box waiting for my friends arrival at 12 today.

    I still use my N4 as my primary phone and a couple of reasons.
    -Software keys- I didn't think this would really matter to me but it's cool because you can program custom shortcuts by swiping up from the home button
    -Screen is much bigger and better for Youtube
    - the Android youtube app has the turn of HD mode which is useful because some places I go to have slow wifi

    But the iPhone has better app quality and better eco system( Not all google services available outside of US)

    On one note I did not like the fact that the screen on the S4 didn't have white whites, but the other colours really pop on it. I don't like the button and the menu button because the shortcuts for multitasking and Google Now are all wonky coming from a N4. The plastic doesn't feel as good as the iPhone 5 but the other features make up for that. one of my favourites is that if the screen is off and i swipe from left to right it shows me notifications in a cool way.
    I just read a post on AC about adjusting the white tone on the screen. Check it out and maybe let your friend know http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/andro...6g/story01.htm

    Woah, thanks for that. I'll try it out when my mate comes and sets his S4 up.

    Does anyone notice how the bezel around the S4 is kinda scratched when used under the sun, or other strong lighting?
    I haven't noticed any on mine.

    I sorta agree. Still love there pod casts.
    Maybe it could be read that way, but as Jessica and other intimated earlier, taken in the context of the rest of the thread, etc. it's pretty easy to see how we got to where we are. I still think this thread has been pretty positive for getting some of the tension into the open and alleviated. I know the last couple of days have been way better than the last couple of weeks.

    My guess is that everyone is just so damned excited for Google I/O in 2 days, 6 hours and 24 minutes (Keynote) that their brains can't handle any additional stress!

    The camera on this phone isn't horrible, the screen is great and the battery is excellent. I get 4 hours of on screen time constantly. Memory certainly could be addressed but I am fine with 16gb. Not sure what a DAC is.

    And you realize it's only $350 right?

    The camera is not good on the nexus 4 at all, I could never get a decent picture compared to my wife's iPhone 4s. I really don't care about the camera in general the thing that made me sell the phone was the battery life sucked. Not sure what happened after 4.2.2 update, but my battery couldn't make it to the end of the day. I had to buy a wireless charging pad for my office and leave my phone on it. The S4 battery is much better. Now I will probably regret selling it after this week lol.

    There's a whole thread showing pictures our members have taken with the N4 and they're good pics. In this case I'm thinking it's not the camera that's the problem.

    You either have a defective unit or expect DSLR quality. The camera isn't outstanding but can still take beautiful pictures.

    Awesome and if I didn't delete all of my bad pictures I could show more that just sucked. The weakness of the camera was apparent when my wife would take the same picture as me. I'm not a photographer by any means, but I do have two perfectly working eyeballs that said one picture sucked compared to the other. Again the N4 was and is a good phone, just not so good at pictures and holding a charge IMOP.

    Nope just expect the camera to pass the eyeball test and it didn't. If it works for you great it didn't for me.

    Everything I've read said the N4's weakspots were no LTE and camera, so you arent alone in your perception.

    LTE was the other thing, not having it was hard after having it if you know what I mean.

    I wouldn't say the camera on the Nexus 4 is terrible, but it isn't the quality of the say the Galaxy S3 or One X (other 8MP shooters that were out at the same time). I'd say that it's average at best, but under the right conditions you can get some good shots with it.

    Its a capable camera but I have never been able to produce any stunning shots with it without extensive editing. Photosphere makes it one of my favorite cameras to use though.

    I might get a N4 as a "work" phone... It's just the lack of LTE that kills me.

    Not my intent to start an argument, was just struck by the inconsistencies in a strongly worded post quoting mine in another forum. Thanks for intervening.
