And thats great for you, but not for all of us, for me and many others WP is still lacking quite a bit, and with Android adding more with each OS update on top of being very mature already i begin to doubt if i'll ever jump to WP, unless i was forced to or if i get given a WP in a competition.

why 279? i thought 217($349) for 16gb?



UK pricing is 239 and 279 respectively, not as simply as converting the US cost due to taxes etc.

@luwi:

Are your Google account, credit card and address all US based? If not, you won't be able to purchase the N4 from the US Play Store.

Live and let live, how hard can it be ?

Dont forget to add state sales tax to the US price.... When you add that, its not that big of a price difference. Australias price, when you factor in the US tax to the US price, it only works out to about $25 more... Not bad me thinks!

Just a FYI -

Nexus 4 uses Sony IMX111PQ image sensor with LG lens.

@TeeGee, >500,

I'm planing to get it thru my cousin in US. Can i give my credit card details to purchase thru her google account? or much better, i'll send money thru western union.

Where do you think the best place to get it thru google store since it is currently blocked in dubai. I have relatives in Canada, USA, UK and Japan that i can ask them to get nexus 4 and 10 for me. Just give some advise, pls. Thanks.

TeeGee is right, to buy the N4 from the Play Store, the buyer's Google Account, credit card and address need to be in the same country, so your cousin in USA won't be able to buy it with your credit card, unless that's from the USA. When your credit card is from Dubai it won't be possible, nor in UK, Canada, Japan, etc.

Maybe you can send one of your relatives the money through WU, so they can buy your N4 with their own credit card ?

People in my country (the Netherlands) have the same problem, the phone isn't available in Google's store, and it seems, LG will be selling it at almost twice the price. With a 250 euro price difference, many people will lose their interest though.

Thanks marly! I think the best option now is to send money thru western union to my cousin in USA to get nexus 4 or I will buy online like clove if the price difference is not much compare to original price.

Nexus 4 battery life very bad apparently:

I sold my SGS3 to buy either the Nexus 4 or the Note II. Looks like on the battery side, these are the opposites of each other...

I'm taking battery life comments with a pinch of salt at the moment, waiting for that OTA to drop before really judging the software side of things...

The Note 2 is a beast when it comes to battery life, hopefully the N4 wont be that far behind on release firmware...
