Yes I love WP & with WP8 now out it's even better. You'll never experience lag on WP. What you mean by black/white list?? The apps are now at 120,000 and growing everyday. Windows Metro UI is beautiful and amazing to use.

I mean a blacklist and/or whitelist app for calls, ala Sony Ericsson A200 software platform, or more recently Android apps such as Root Call Blocker Pro.

Such apps are really useful to me

Heh, shame you wont be getting WP8 then unless you change phones.

I like this phone but i think they would have been better suited to sticking with Samsung.

The total lack of large capacity storage ruins the phone entirely. I filled up my SGS3 internal memory recently. Without its SD card i'd be in a very difficult situation.

Yeah I will get the new features and home screen in 7.8 anyway. Am looking to get WP8 soon enough. Video sample from Nexus 4. Noisy distorted sound

I can imagine it being rather poor. You'd spend so much time uploading and downloading to and from dropbox with such limited storage.

This app is for hongkong users
http://www.windowsphone.com/e[....]c4-be81-469e-87bb-acc05087e86c

Still Windows Phone 8 offers limited options for apps and things most tech savvy users require that their used to on S60/UIQ/Android.

Still, I find this Nexus4 to be a solid product.

Comparison with previous generation:
http://versusio.com/en/google[....]4-vs-samsung-galaxy-nexus-16gb

37% smaller semiconductor size/newer CPU: 28nm vs 45nm
2.5x faster CPU clock speed:
4x 1.5Ghz vs 2x 1.2Ghz
20% more battery power
It can be charged w/o any plugs and wires similar to electric shavers or toothbrushes (as extra)
1.0gb more RAM memory

It can automatically shoot pictures with an higher dynamic range (HDR)
On some displays, especially AMOLED, two pixel share one subpixel like green; screens w/o sharing are crisper

To be honest i think all the app stores are about the same. I know people will say Apple has the most closely followed and about to be overtaken than Android, but to be honest you wouldnt know because theres simply more apps than anyone would ever get time to use.

So i agree, app counts are pretty pointless. On my devices i find usually i install 50 apps or less.

But i dont think the Microsoft Marketplace does itself any favours with app enthusiasts with how its laid out. It offers only a small amount of apps per screen and even then you have to click through links to open more.

Indeed, although, IMO, id say its more tech savvy functions than apps that are missing in WP. The lack of Instagram and Flipboard are part of the reason that make me not even consider WP yet for my next phone, but the bigger things for IMO is lack of Bluetooth file transfer of any media, lack of "true" multitasking, lack of customizability, lack of a wider range of codec support, no notification center and no Mass Storage (WTF Microsoft!??) amongst other minor things.

Anyway, im hoping there are 32GB and 64GB variants of this coming, with a CPU+GPU like that this thing is ready for some serious gaming and media consumption.
