Delivering an unsullied Android 4.2 Jelly Bean experience and quad-core speeds, the LG Nexus 4 comes close to being a powerhouse. Unfortunately, with a phone of this caliber, to come out these days without LTE is a huge misstep. Instead, it operates on "4G-ish" GSM/HSPA+ technology.
As Google's flagship phone of the season, the Nexus 4 is the first smartphone to natively ship with Jelly Bean. A few new features include Photo Sphere, a notifications bar with more information, and quick access to Google Now.
The Nexus 4 will be available unlocked on November 13, starting at $299 for the 8GB version and $349 for the 16GB. T-Mobile will start selling it a day after and will offer the 16GB model for $199 alongside a carrier agreement.
