Attention citizens of Earth: Here is your Nexus 4 unboxing. Yes. From me. The guy who hates unboxings. But for the Nexus 4? What the hell. We'll unbox it.

So here's the Nexus 4 box. And here's us pulling the Nexus 4 out of its box. It is no longer in the box. It is unboxed. It is a Nexus 4, without a box. What's in the box? Stuff.

Nexus 4 unboxing


Stupid work blocking YouTube videos, so I can't watch it. Wait! I have the credentials to unblock the sites. I shall abuse my power.

https usually works for Facebook and such. With YouTube, I get to the site, but I can't watch the videos.

Bah, don't bother with the video. We all know how it turns out.

What ever happened to the good old days when people just took a still shot?

I haven't hada set of headphones since BB days. I know Samsung does but that's because. They clone iphones

I used the Samsung ones with my Galaxy Nexus. They were nice to have but I wasn't using them for everyday use. I felt like they put me in a sealed tin can with I used them. I could hear my own voice in my head.

The ones with my S3 were decent enough. They do block out the world, but they aren't very durable. Mine have lasted a few months and are now falling apart. Oh well

Hey Phil. I'm planning on picking this up as soons as it's available. I know you've spent a lot of time with its brothers. Do you know what the accessory scene is going to look like? I can always make do with generics but I do appreciate a good brand name car dock, desktop dock etc.

I'm not sure what everyone else heard Phil say in that video but I heard that we can all come over and use his Wi-Fi.

This sounds like a great opportunity for a flash mob style visit to his house. We just need 200 people to show up to his house tomorrow morning at 8 AM all wearing Android Central T-shirts.

Was there more plastic inside/outside the phone? it does have that WOW factor. Thanks for the unboxing Phil.

Where is the pad for wireless charging? It isn't included? If it's not, how would you charge it? Can it be charged using an ordinary cable?

Of course it isn't included. You are being facetious right? This phone is already so cheap what more do you want? Honestly though, the charging pad will most likely show up later as a $40-50 accessory.

I want to watch this, yet - one thing I've learned from leaks is that unknowns are what keeps the buzz going, must Must experience for myself.


considering the expected price for Nex4 in India and no Headphones???? WTF.. Headfones come as a basic accessory even for a locally made cheap phone..Common LG..this really sucks..

HTC doesn't include any headphones anymore either.
Not after their "purple phone" on Verizon with included Beats headphones.
That said, I own some nice headphones, and I'm OK with them leaving out the cheap headphones.

This video even makes me even more to want it. Why do I have to wait 11 more days to be able to order it?

WTH... the video gets half way through.. then it stops with "This video is currently unavailable"...?!?!?

After hearing thata member from the verge already cracked his nexus review units back from a drop. Makes me Leary of a Glass backed phone. Guess they didn't learn from apple.

Does anybody really expect a phone to not be damaged from a fall, and if it's made of glass not break? I know I surely don't have that expectation.

A friend of mine has a nexus one that flew through a parking lot and works fine. Only has a few battle scars on the metal case.

Seriously, adobe needs to bring back mobile flash to android os. Why they discontinued it with no other viable alternative is beyond me.
