    Good price, been using it since it was launched and very happy with it overall. Great value for money.
    Now if only they'd make the charging orb available for purchase in the UK!

  4. Good enough phone and fast enough on T-Mobile. Problem is spotty coverage with T-Mobile. Sometimes it is great, with good enough speed, but in some areas no data or no coverage. I am thinking of changing to AT&T some day to get coverage and speed, so the phone an I must part ways. I hear that AT&T + Google phone is slower, though I could look into it again later on down the road. I bet the next Google phone has LTE. Who knows the future, with lower priced iPhone C and possibly apps for WP8 some day, I may have other choices.

    That is a good deal for an unlocked phone. Too bad it doesnt have LTE.
     
  6. Wow.. Nexus 4 was already one of the best(if not the best) smartphone for it's price. Having it at a $100 discount is really a bargain one can't say no.

    At the price tag I don't even bothered about LTE support or non-expandable memory. Gotta get one..

    Glad to see you've switched your allegiance from the Motorola Razr you always liked to brag about.

    Yeah but it's not relevant in most parts of the world, besides that'll only serve to push the cost up again.

    Always fancied that Razr Maxx with the huge battery but this made more sense. Still would like a bigger battery but the Nexus 4 plus Wireless charging pad mean I've usually got some juice in it when I'm going somewhere :)

    I have this for the original price and I'm very happy with it. 25% off is simply amazing and really makes mid-range phones obsolete.
