Heads up for those that manage to get theirs before December 31st.

The Nexus 4 is eligible for 50GB of box cloud storage.

Just download the app from play and login/register from your N4 and your account will automatically be upgraded from 5 to 50GB

Boycott them, tax dodgers. Poor battery life on the Nexus 4 too...allegedly.

This is for an 8 GB.

Mix of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, phone and texts and a lot of Angry Birds.  Smile

So far.    1 day 18 hours 10 mins and 36% battery left.

Dont believe everything you read.

RE: Nexus 4 in Stock Today For £280!

There are various reports online that people who ordered the Nexus 4 as soon as it was available on 4th December (& given a delivery time of 1-2 weeks) have still not received their handsets, while people who ordered much later (& given delivery time of 4-5 weeks) received their handsets within the week.  Angry

Very poor effort from Google this time.  shame on you

I cancelled my order yesterday.

Lots of those with 1-2 week estimates started getting their shipping notifications yesterday.

Whilst it's poor CS from Google, them getting deliveries after those with longer delivery times, it is still within their quoted shipping estimates.

Personally i've tired of the weeks of whinging on owners threads on fora. They've got an excellent phone, at an exceptional price and within quoted delivery time. Time to get over it and enjoy their purchases

I'm sorry, but shipping notification yesterday is beyond their quoted shipping estimate of 1-2 weeks. In any case, I cancelled the order last night, & it was accepted, indicating that my order wasn't shipped at all.

Sorry to hear that bb, it is p. poor service from Google - then the whole Nexus 4 release has been a bit of a case study in how not to do it...

RE: Nexus 4 in Stock Today For £280!

My Mrs. has been using the phone for a week now. I am very impressed! Love Google cards & Google now. Just swipe the finger up the screen from the bottom & you get instant weather alert & time it'll take to get to work in current traffic conditions. (This finger swipe feature to type faster is eerily accurate!)

 

Does feel a bit fragile though.

Now and 'Gesture Typing' were the first things to be disabled on mine...

Compared to the One X it replaced, and the missus' S3 i wouldn't call it fragile at all

Doesn't look or feel fragile - I'll let you know after I give it the "throwing it down the stairs from the top" test. The iPad passed this with flying colours  embarassed
