Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

My smartphone, no doubt, has to efficiently performs professional functions such as Document Viewer, Pushmail (Microsoft Exchange, Active Sync), eBook Reader, which Google Nexus 4 does well. A small device like this might neatly fit in my pockets, but that's all it can and nothing much with the cramped screen size of 4.7 inches. I more than often go for efficient devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth in my smartphone is essential more for hands-free calling than file sharing. I am mostly traveling around and even if it is in known streets, I prefer having my GPS navigation guiding me along, in case of traffic or diversions.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I hate typing messages on the Google Nexus 4 with its tiny keypad as I misspell a single word more than 3 times. Video recording is fun and lets me record all beautiful memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the Google Nexus 4 sports other excellent features and fairly makes up.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The 4.7 inch display may be quite decent for a smartphone but I don't like it for my reading or gaming purpose. The 1.5 GHz is quite a decent frequency, but I would prefer something higher than that for gaming. I love the super fast load time and the awesome performance, overall; and all the credit goes to the powerful quad-core processor of this smartphone. Now I can enjoy extremely graphical games with no lags, and on top of this manage to multitask with the 2 GB RAM of this smartphone. I can download and save all my cool and graphic-heavy games with the 16 GB internal storage of this smartphone and still have enough room for my ebooks and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 4.7 inches display of the Google Nexus 4 was the first thing that grabbed my attention. I prefer texting over talking but this screen size is way too cramped to do that easily. It's not that amazing to own a smartphone with Yes, 8 MP camera resolution. There are cheaper options available that too with better camera resolution. I click hundreds of cool pics with my smartphone and don't think the pictures will be so cool with this phone. For me, a smartphone with secondary camera means loads of selfies. Me and my friends are a huge followers of the selfie and groupie trend, we hardly stop clicking 'em. If you find clicking selfies as cool as I do then you should definitely opt for a smartphone with an amazing secondary camera. My smartphone should be doing more than messaging, browsing and emails and that too simultaneously. I feel 2G networks are not reliable when it comes to this. I like the GPS feature, especially for new locations and traffic updates. I don't worry charging when I can charge my phone with the laptop; I can even transfer files with this. I can't be choosing between which media files to keep and which ones to delete, due to internal storage as low as 16 GB. It's irritating to delete favourite files from my smartphone due to memory issues, so I always go with larger internal storage.
