We've lined up the Samsung Nexus 10 with the latest and greatest tablets out there, but how does the LG Nexus 4 compare to its competition? Of course we line up the Nexus 4 against other big-name Android devices, like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X, but the iPhone 5 is probably the more interesting comparison. Windows Phone fans can also see how their Nokia Lumia 920 shapes up, and BlackBerry? Well... We'll have to wait until early next year to find out.
The Nexus 4 beats out the iPhone 5 in screen resolution, and only at a slight cost to pixel density. On local storage, the iPhone 5 has a bit of a lead; neither support microSD, and Apple's offering additional 32 GB and 64 Gb denominations. The iPhone 5 also takes the lead in cellular connectivity thanks to LTE. The iPhone 5 is slimmer, lighter, and has a smaller overall footprint, though the LG Nexus 4 has a significantly bigger battery, plus that cool inductive charging technology and NFC.
Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is certainly looking nice, though we'll have to reserve judgment until we really get our hands on it. On paper, the LG Nexus 4 has an uphill battle, but we all know that phones are more than a spec sheet. How all of the device's disparate parts come together will be what really counts, and we'll be finding out .
Is anyone sold on the Nexus 4? What should LG and Google have included that is noticeably absent? How does it shape up against the other Android smartphones out there?
