Setting change lets Nexus 4 pick up limited LTE signal in Canada

So, the LG Nexus 4 has a dormant LTE capability inside, and no it's not going to magically start working with LTE. Or is it? Kind of, is possibly the best way to describe what we're now starting to see. Seems some enterprising types up in Canada have been fiddling with things and amazingly have...

Play Store now pushing potential Nexus 4 buyers to T-Mobile

If you've given up refreshing the Play Store listing for the Nexus 4, we wouldn't blame you at this point. There's no indication when these will be back in stock from Google directly, and that's really unfortunate. If you do happen to go to the Play Store though, you'll be greeted with a "Special...

Good news for those of you who managed to order a Nexus 4 last week but were stuck in limbo on shipping -- it looks like another batch has started shipping. Actual delivery date is still kinda up in the air, but that's not unusual for UPS; it can take a few hours for the tracking system to catch...

Should I upgrade to the Nexus 4 now that the Galaxy Nexus has 4.2?

We've taken a look at how the Nexus 4 stacks up against the Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X, and...

No, your Nexus 4 won't magically grow LTE support (updated Nov. 23)

Ed. Note: This story was updated several times on Nov. 23, 2012, in the wake of the news that the Nexus 4 indeed can receive LTE data on Band 4, otherwise known as AWS. The original updates to this story (and a temporary change to the headline) altered the text more than they should have. While it...

LG Nexus 4 qualifies for 50GB free Box.net cloud storage

As it's being sold primarily by Google through the Play devices store, it's easy (and accurate) to think of the Nexus 4 as a Google device. But it's still an LG-made phone, and as such qualifies for 50GB of free space on Box.net, thanks to a partnership between manufacturer and cloud storage...

Santa's going to be mad, Google forgot about December

We all know -- and hopefully accept -- that with any new version release of Android, there's bound to be a few little bugs hidden within. While Google will test, test and test again, there's always likely to be something that slips the net, many of which most users never come across. What we find...

Nexus 4 gets rooted, we feign surprise

It's a Nexus. It's got an unlockable bootloader. So it was only a matter of time before someone worked out how to plug root access and superuser into Google and LG's new baby. We've been here before, folks. In addition to a working root method from AddictiveTips's HQRaja (via XDA), there's also...
