Nexus 4 now available to order from Google Play

Hello all,

Thought it was worth telling you all that the Nexus 4 is available to order again...finally...for UK customers. Just use the link below to go to the Google Play store, currently delivery is estimated at 1-2 weeks so I just ordered mine at last but now the wait begins. Hope this info is helpful to those (like myself) that have been patiently waiting for Google to sort out the stock issues of the Nexus 4, oh and by the way I had no issues with the checkout procedure like all those that ordered before xmas, it was a smooth transaction.

Just ordered mine. Let's hope the 1-2 week delivery is a half decent estimate.  :grin:

RE: Nexus 4 now available to order from Google Play

If I remember correctly those that ordered before xmas received their phone well before the estimate but some people faced a long wait, hopefully the estimate is more accurate this time so hopefully within a week or two we should receive the phone. Keep me posted if you receive it early and I will do the same.

BTW I forgot to mention that Google will take payment immediately after you order the phone despite what it says on the receipt that they send you, just thought it was worth warning you all in advance as the receipt you get emailed states that payment won't be taken until the item is ready to despatch. That is wrong as in the T&C's it states payment is taken immediately.

They don't actually take the money, they request the amount to make sure you have the funds before processing your order. It will reappear in your account within a few days.

At least thats the way it was when i pre-ordered my Nexus 7.

Thanks for the info daveh75, I just presumed that the money was taken straight away from how the T&C's are worded but if that's the case then great but I will keep an eye on it. As of now the money has been taken from my account.

The bumper is over priced tat. If you want to protect it, i'd getter proper case.

thanks for the heads up on the payment system. I'll let you know when mine arrives. Let the race begin  :O

My brother-in-law had the misfortune of dropping his phone while taking it out of the case. It is a slippery phone. So now I also need a pouch to accommodate the phone with bumper case. Any suggestions?

My wife doesn't like cases which are permanently on the phone. She prefers a pouch.

It is a slippery sucker.

The bumper adds a bit of bulk and the pouches i've seen are quite a tight fit so you may struggle to fit it in one with the bumper on.

I put the bumper straight on eBay when I got it, as not confident it would protect it from drops and just bought a gel/silicone skin type cover.

I went for a gel/silicone case as well. The bumper doesn't protect the front or back. At least a gel case protects the back.

And the one I got cost just under £3 Smile

She doesn't like gel cases unfortunately (already have 1). She's usually very good in maintaining phones. Her iphone 4S was sold at a good price as it was in pristine condition with not even a scratch, & she never even had a screen protector on.

I was thinking of cases for slightly larger phones, which can fit the Nexus 4 with bumper. Samsung Galaxy Note maybe? :?

My FiL who ordered yesterday (with a delivery estimate of the 13th) has just had a shipping email. So looks Google may have been over cautious with their delivery times....
