Today we're taking a look at Google's new Nexus 4 smartphone driven by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. With a single unbroken piece of Gorilla Glass up front the Nexus 4 looks very clean and it makes a nice change from the buttons and branding you'll see on most other smartphones. It's also quite unique if you flip it over: the phone has a series of dots below the glass surface which reflect light randomly and give a very nice look to the device. On the other hand, you do need to be mindful that there is an awful lot of glass on the Nexus 4.
The screen is a 4.7" IPS panel with a resolution of 1280x768. It lacks some of the saturation of the AMOLED screen on the Galaxy Nexus but it's still among the best smartphone screens out there with good viewing angles and improved brightness. Under the hood you'll find a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad core processor clocked at 1.5GHz with Adreno 320 graphics and 2GB of RAM along with either 8GB or 16GB of storage and a 2100mAh battery...
