And at 9.1mm, compared to the likes of the iPhone 5 at 7.6mm, it’s certainly sticking two fingers up at skinny smartphones. But although it’s roughly the same size overall as the&nbsp;<a href="http://content.intlstuff.haynet.com/review/samsung-galaxy-s3">Samsung Galaxy S3</a>, the Nexus 4 is somehow easier to hold thanks to the extra depth and a few millimetres shaved off the width.</p> <p>Of all the phones we’ve tested lately, the Nexus 4 hits the sweet spot in terms of screen size – at 4.7in it’s pretty darn massive, but doesn’t necessitate a chassis so big that it takes two hands to hold and operate. Next to the similarly sized&nbsp;<a href="http://content.intlstuff.haynet.com/review/htc-one-x-plus">HTC One X+</a>’s sexy single piece of polycarbonate, though, the Nexus 4 still looks a little uninspired.

Text is very smooth compared to the <a href="/review/samsung-galaxy-s3">Galaxy S3</a>, and whites are clean and bright with no unsightly tinges – though the <a href="/review/apple-iphone-5">iPhone</a> still has the better contrast.</p> <p>Side by side, we still just about prefer the <a href="http://content.intlstuff.haynet.com/review/htc-one-x-plus">HTC One X+’s display</a>&nbsp;- it’s one of our favourites, with warmer colours that still remain natural. It looks slightly crisper than the Nexus 4, despite the Google handset’s whopping 317ppi, but it’s a very close call and both are brilliant, sharp screens.</p> <p>One quick niggle is the Android buttons that take up some of the display – they disappear when you’re using fullscreen apps, but otherwise make the homescreen a little cluttered. We can’t help but think Samsung and HTC’s solutions, which see the Android buttons built into the lower portion of the bezel, are more useful.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Google Nexus 4 camera" alt="Google Nexus 4 camera" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/google-nexus-4-review-photosphere_4.jpg?1381578855" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Nexus 4 playing a game" alt="Nexus 4 playing a game" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/google-nexus-4-review-7-need-for-speed.jpg?1381578855" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> performance </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon innards and 2GB of RAM will have sub-£300 Android phones’ knees a–rattling in terror as the Nexus 4 stakes its claim as one of the most powerful smartphones on the planet.</p> <p>With help from Jelly Bean (more on that later) Android has never run better, with everything from speedy swiping around Google Earth and Maps to superb handling of games like GTA III helping to convince us of the Nexus 4’s charms. A massive Geekbench 2 score of 2061 (higher than the <a href="/review/samsung-galaxy-note-2-0">Samsung Galaxy&nbsp;Note 2</a>, <a href="/review/apple-iphone-5">iPhone 5</a> or <a href="/review/samsung-galaxy-s3">Samsung Galaxy S3</a>) and an impressive 38fps in GLBenchmarks’s Egypt HD test back up those day-to-day impressions.</p> <p>Big apps and games download quickly, and aside from the odd couple of frames dropped on <a href="/review/need-for-speed-most-wanted">Need for Speed: Most Wanted</a> (and no support for flash), there are far fewer hiccups than on other top Droids – even on the <a href="/review/samsung-galaxy-s3">Samsung Galaxy S3</a> and <a href="/review/samsung-galaxy-note-2-0">Samsung Note 2</a> Sammy’s widgets can cause slowdown, while the <a href="/review/htc-one-x-plus">HTC One X+</a> can occasionally take its sweet time loading web pages. If your first impressions lean towards tepid, its fantastic performance ensures the Nexus 4 is definitely a grower.&nbsp;</p> <p>One of the only downsides to this is that the Nexus 4 isn’t shy about letting you know how hard it’s working: when playing Android games or downloading files, our review handset got very warm – far more than the <a href="/review/samsung-galaxy-s3">Samsung Galaxy S3 </a>for the same tasks. Won’t need gloves so much this winter perhaps?</p> <p>And with all that processing power you’d think Google would flex its muscles a little with some pop-up browsing or multiscreen action like <a href="/review/samsung-galaxy-note-2-0">Samsung’s massive Galaxy Note 2</a>, but Android 4.2 isn’t taking the bait.

Well you’re in the right place. Some might prefer the gentle prodding and tempting of Samsung, LG or HTC widgets and customisable extras, but sometimes you want the Zen-like calm of an empty homescreen. With a solitary ‘recommended from Google Play’ widget, it’s good to see Google isn’t pushing the Amazon model too far.</p> <p>Icons and the drab notifications dropdown don’t help to show off the Nexus 4’s gorgeous display, but Android 4.2 is seriously slick. It now rocks built-in Gesture Typing (basically Swype) and there’s lots of attention to detail from neat transitions like closing web pages, swiping through open tabs in Chrome and a dimming screen as you pull down notifications.</p> <p>Unfortunately, Google Play isn’t quite ready for Android 4.2 yet – perhaps because we’re testing a pre-release Nexus 4 – but essential apps like <a href="/review/bbc-iplayer-for-ipad">BBC iPlayer</a> and MX Player aren’t compatible yet, while slowcoaches like Sky have yet to make the leap to Jelly Bean.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>UPDATE: </strong>We've just updated our Nexus 4 review unit – it's customisable lockscreen widgets a-go-go – and after it's had a video close-up we'll be carrying out another battery test to see if there's any improvement.&nbsp;</p> <p>Google Now is much more useful on a 3G device than a Wi-Fi-only tablet, and 4.2 brings some new tricks – as well as the usual weather, travel and calendar updates it can now alert you to nearby ‘photo spots’ as well as let you know what bands or movies are showing that you’ve been searching for or watching on YouTube.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Google Play widget" alt="Google Play widget" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/google-nexus-4-review-3-recommended.jpg?1381578855" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> battery life </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Battery life on the Nexus 4 was a letdown during our time with the device, especially since we’ve been spoilt by the super stamina of the likes of the <a href="/review/htc-one-x-plus">HTC One X+</a> and <a href="/review/nokia-lumia-920">Nokia Lumia 920</a> lately.</p> <p>We saw 7-8 hours of normal usage from the 2100mAh battery (during out testing we blew through a third of the Nexus 4’s life in an hour and a half), and chances are you’ll be re-juicing late afternoon.</p> <p>That said, much depends on how you adjust sync settings for both default and third party apps.

Be careful of rogue fingers and subjects moving, too, or you’ll end up with odd deformities and unidentified skin-coloured objects in your mobile works of art.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Photo taken with Nexus 4 camera" alt="Photo taken with Nexus 4 camera" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/google-nexus-4-review-camera-stills.jpg?1381578855" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Photo taken with Nexus 4 camera" alt="Photo taken with Nexus 4 camera" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/google-nexus-4-review-photosphere-sample_1_0.jpg?1381578855" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-6"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> wireless charging </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Google didn’t send us a wireless charging kit for the Nexus 4, but we’re mighty excited about this next-gen tech – look out for a review update once we try out the Nexus 4 with Nokia’s colourful, Qi-compatible wireless charging plate (£45), which we’ve been very impressed with in combination with the <a href="/review/nokia-lumia-920">Nokia Lumia 920</a>.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nokia Lumia 920 on wireless charging plate" alt="Nokia Lumia 920 on wireless charging plate" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/nokia-lumia-920-review-wireless-charging.jpg?1381578855" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-7"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The 4G mystery </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>4G isn’t bothering Google at the moment – no sign of it for the <a href="/review/google-nexus-7">Nexus 7</a> and, more importantly, it isn't enabled by default in the Nexus 4.&nbsp;</p> <p>Tech heads who’ll get giddy over the rest of the Nexus 4’s specs and performance might be disappointed at this bizarre decision.
