    Amazing price for this phone. It's a bit dated but is still a great phone. Just picked up one myself.

    $199 for a phone without contract? Or you need a contract?

    You've got to be joking... I bought this phone, like 1 week ago, for $299.

    I guess the Nexus is now a-4-dable!

    ...Jeez, just typing that made me cringe. I'm so, so sorry you had to read that.

    Would this work on T-mobile's 4G network?

    I guess this has just taken down the resale value of my phone by loads. I've had it for about 6 months now and I don't really think I'm ever going to sell it though tbh.

    It will not get 4G speeds. It is a 3G only phone to save on costs.

    Not exactly true. The N4 does indeed contain a LTE radio, it's just disabled. Flashing the .33 radio and some tinkering with the settings will get you on T-Mobile LTE.

    For $199 off contract, they're basically giving these away. Dat sexy glass back and the still good Snap Dragon S4 Pro are unheard of at this price.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    Nah...I rather iPhone over this for only two reasons: Facetime because of higher quality over skype and oovoo . Second: sign language. The skype and oovoo caused sign language blurry and hard to read sometimes, you know.

    I would normally agree, but facetime is far from what it used to be. The Nexus 4 is one of the best price/value phones at the moment. While iPhones are great, they suffer from a lack of features made by other OSs.

    Tl;dr: need a New phone? get a Nexus 4. It has quite a few features needed by everyone
