What’s Special about Google Nexus 4
The newest flagship droid of Google, manufactured by LG, packs a 1.5 GHz quad core processor, a 1280 by 768 pixel true HD 4.7 inch display, an 8 Mega pixel shooter and a 2100 mAh Lithium Polymer battery under its hood. The specifications on the first glance suggest that it has the guts to be a serious rival in the high end smartphone arena, and yet it has a lot more to offer than just the specs. This engineering feat has been designed elegantly, with a lustrous curved design to fit the curves of the palm, and weighs merely 139 grams. The high resolution display is coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 2, providing an additional touch of protection against the damages and scratches.
The true HD display is large, bright and brilliant with a 320ppi which makes it even more amazing. The text and the images appear crystal clear with nice contrast levels, even at very wide viewing angles. Display does a really great job even under direct sunlight, reducing glare. Apart from the main camera, which possesses an 8 mega pixel sensor, Nexus 4 has a 1.3 mega pixel camera at the front, enabling you to video call to your friends. The phone packs the regular sensors including accelerometer, barometer, compass, gyro sensors and proximity sensors. Nexus 4 comes in 8 GB and 16 GB versions however a main feature which is missing is the external memory slot. It sure would’ve been a welcoming offering. Unlike previous Nexus members, Nexus 4 packs a non-removable battery, which doesn’t add up to the hype of it.
Nexuses are always the first privileged to enjoy the taste of the latest Android updates, and same follows with this droid as well. Nexus 4 packs Android 4.2 Jellybean out of the box. 4.2 version features several new additions over the 4.1 version, including the new Google Now updates, Gesture Typing and Miracast, a counterpart to AirPlay by Apple.
With the new update, the camera app now features a built in HDR mode similar to that of iPhone5, and the function works really well on the new Google Nexus 4.The photos are ideally exposed and are quiet satisfactory for a smartphone camera. Another cool addition to the jellybean 4.2 update is the Photo Sphere feature which lets you create 360 degree panoramas and view them from your phone. The app has been specially built into the android platform and this even allows you to share your panoramas in Google+ and submit it to Google Maps. Movie Studio and Time lapse mode are two new cool additions in the video camera department, which lets you, create awesome movies and share them with the world by uploading them on YouTube. Instant Upload feature lets you upload the photos instantly to a secure private photo album online
Almost everywhere there are many rivals eyeing for the top spot, and its’ true for the case of smartphones as well. True that Nexus 4 packs some exiting specifications, but the rivals too have their own hoods stacked with unique features, making it a fierce battle. On the Android side there is Samsung Galaxy S3, undoubtedly the most popular droid yet, and then comes the HTC One X+, a recent boost to the former One X, and the same manufacturers of Google Nexus, LG offer their own version prying for the throne, the LG Optimus G. And on the other side fights the arch rival of all droids, the iPhone5. Since each and every one of these are unique feats of engineering, crafted to near perfection for the age, it’s really hard to decide between them. However when the price tag is concerned The Nexus 4 obviously beats the competition, merely costing $299 for an unlocked version where as an unlocked iPhone5 costs around $600.
