Unboxing Google's Nexus 4 smartphone Video Transcript
This is the Nexus 4. Now, if you're not familiar with Google's Nexus phones, this is the only way to get the pure Android experience. You get all the updates as soon as they come out and nobody is allowed to put their own stamp on it. The other thing that's new about this phone is that it's the first time that LG has manufactured Nexus phone previously. They've all been Samsung. So, this is kind of a big change and I personally am super excited to get in here. This is our review unit and it's a developer unit so there might be a couple of things in the box that you don't get, but I think you'll get the idea. Let's buzz to that. Nexus. It's already been on tape. I'm sorry everyone. Okay. It's not as-- It's a little more squared off than some of the Samsung, but it's not as long. Look at the back. It's got this kind of like matrix thing going on, glittery. I like it. Turn it on. You have your LG branding. Now, these are considered the flagship Android phone, so I have been carrying an iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3, but I think I'm about to switch over to this guy because this is the way to go. Now, this phone is asking me for a SIM card so it's a good time to check out what else is in the box. Nothing on top here. This guy out. We have our Nexus quick start guide. Now, if you have any experience buying a Nexus phone through Google, trust me this is about the only text report you're gonna get, so read it carefully. Here's our power brick. Again, not the standard Samsung/Apple square. Nice to see. My little charging cable, which I think we're gonna want 'cause our battery is gone quickly and then of course my little SIM card poker. I don't know. I bet that has a name, but I'm gonna call the SIM card poker. And that is pretty much it. Let's check out the specs. Obviously, the Nexus 4 is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It has a 1.5 gigahertz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor plus 2 gigs of RAM onboard. Google says that should make it the fastest phone on the market and I wouldn't be surprised. It has an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera. It also has a 2100 milliamp battery. That's not the biggest battery on the market, but it's a good size and Google says it should last 10 hours with talking. Android phones do just keep getting bigger. This one is no different. It has a 4.7-inch screen, but the screen is beautiful, full HD resolution at 1280 x 768. Obviously, the Nexus 4 has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. It also supports wireless charging and Google is making a new accessory called the Charging Orb so that you can dock and charge that way. There's not much storage on this phone. It starts at 8 gigs and you can only go as high as 16 with no expandable memory. If you buy this phone unlocked from Google Play, assuming you can get one, the price is great, $299 for the 8-gig model and $349 for 16 gigs. It starts at $199 with a new contract at T-Mobile. Now, the Nexus 4 is great hardware. The screen is beautiful. I'm very impressed with the look and feel of this phone, but there are some big tradeoffs that have me a little bit let down namely, the lack of LTE. Google is not working with the carriers other than T-Mobile so you're kind of stuck on a slower network. And that's a huge bomber since you have to live in the cloud because the phone only goes up to 16 gigs. The price is good and like I said I love the hardware, but I think there are few too many tradeoffs unless you are really committed to the true Android experience.
