Nexus 4

No matter how hard I try, I can't find a way to use three Nexus 4 phones. Maybe a radioactive spider will bite me one day and it will be possible, but for now I have one Nexus 4 too many. That means this little fellow has to find a new home.

Ideally, we're looking for someone who will love him forever and feed him every day (he likes Apples). If this sounds like you, apply by leaving a comment below. At midnight Pacific, I'll kill the comments and pick a winner. Good luck, and #HOLOYOLO.

Spring cleaning: Win an LG Nexus 4



Just what I always wanted. My own little Nexus 4. I will name him George, and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him... ...and pat him and pet him and... ...and rub him and caress him and...

This would give me the oppertunity to finally ditch Verizon, pay off my ETF and go Pre-Paid....THIS would make my day.

I'm losing my friend too =( I'm entering into medical school, and I'm going off of my parent's contract with Verizon. I was going to get a basic phone with a prepaid card, because I can't afford a smartphone, especially not the N4 (darn 60k student loans). I will love him as my own, and make sure I take him on plenty of adventures. I'm going to miss having my best-tech-friend, but maybe I'll get a new one soon <3

I would love to adopt this beautiful, majestic beast. I promise to love it, hold it, caress it, and feed it many apples.

I've been wanting to get my hands on a vanilla android device for a long time. I would love to take that Nexus 4 off your hands. Pick me! Pick me!

Need a nexus to show everyone in my family that their iphones are horrible. The only one who loves android in my family

I am a poor dj who has an old blackberry. this phone would help me get my name on social networks and market myself more online so i may make more money and hopefully have one phone too many and then i'll PAY IT FORWARD!

thank you in advance

I'll take one. I have an S3 and for whatever reason, I'm completely dissatisfied with the whole touchwiz experience. I wanna go vanilla! Nexus me!

Would love a Nexus4! Need a new Nexus for Paranoid ROM. My GalaxyNexus is growing more and more sluggish.

I still have a Bionic, and 4 of my teenage Grandkids just got iPhones 5's to show me how great they were on Fathers Day. #@%&*($*#@

This brother don't need a new pair of shoes, but he could use the pure Android bliss of a Nexus 4.

please, need an upgrade. Currently have the htc thunderbolt, so I hope you understand where I'm coming from. Please.

Hmmm, Nexus 4 or keep the HTC One that I just bought (but didn't want to, my old phone died). This would save me some bucks. Count me in.


SWEET!!!! I definitely would give him a good home. I left Verizon and went att straight talk but their policies on data usage suck. And the phone i have now only supports the tmobile 1900mhz bands which makes reception and data services really bad and sporadic in many places. In fact in some big cities i can only get edge :(

I've been trying to get my girlfriend to fall in love with my Nexus 4. She keeps thinking about the SGS4 or the HTC One, but the cost...

Sent your editorial on the N4 to my girlfriend hoping it might help with her decision. I think it's a damn good phone that gets the job done. I really enjoyed the editorial. It's nice to get validation that I made a good choice. I have the AC staff to thank for that. Love the site. Love the podcast.

Have fun reading through all of these!

I have an old iPhone 3GS and I'm tired of it. I desperately need a new phone as this one is a hand me down and I really want to get away from Apple. PICK ME PLEASE!!!!! I will hug it and squeeze it and call it George. I will cherish it always.

Jerry I will gladly adopt this little guy and give a comfortable place to stay in my left pocket. I have a mac in my computer room(it belongs to a friend) so he will never go hungry.

This would be great for me. I've been dying for a reason to switch away from verizons corporate grip on me and my father, and winning this beautiful gorgeous phone will give me the reason I've been waiting for.

I would give it a great home. Give a nice case to live in and make sure its played with everyday.

Speing cleaning. ..I hope to take that lovely nexus off your hands. I have wanted one since its release. I plan to give my ipad to my mom if I win....

As a photographer and Google supporter it would be nice to have a pure Google experence to use for all my needs.

My daughter (who's ten) got all As on her report card and would love this as her first phone. She loves my Galaxy Nexus.

This has been my favorite phone ever! And mine is all cracked! A true work horse and warrior!

Sent him home to Austin's Android Orchard where he can eat all the apples he wants and put that amazing hardware to good use. I need my Gingerbread device to retire and give up his spot to a younger, more powerful phone. He'll be so happy here.

I will make sure little Nexy gets a good home. I will feed him apples, tuck him in every night, make sure he gets a good charge, and love him like he was my very own.

I promise to give it a good home, feed it apples and take great care of it. ;)

since i don't have a girlfriend...she(n4) will get all the attention she needs plus more :)

Me for a good cause. I get a N4 and My Gnex could do some good for my GF since her NS is really slow.

Well I've been known to take very good care of my devices so I wouldn't mind adopting the little guy. PICK ME!!

Congrats to the winner either way B-).

Posted via Android Central App

I always thought this contest is rigged!

Until now. Thanks for picking me as the winner!!!!!!


Nexus 4 is only hungry for apps. I feed him four times a day from a 7 Star Google Play store . My menu full of apps.

I've already adopted his awkward cousin - LG Optimus G.

You should keep the family together and give him to me.

I will Love the Nexus 4 for ever if I get one of these you are giving away, I will feed it tons of battery juice and take care of it very well, I promise. :-)

Transitioning into a new job and need a new phone for my business line. I'd love to make it this N4. :)

I'll take it! My girlfriend has gone through three phones in two months, and I'm tired of paying for her to break them~!

Please pick me. I vow to make sure he's well fed and well taken care of. Would love a Nexus 4

please consider me. I would be a great owner! I have had my Samsung Infuse for almost 3 years with no damage. I know the importance of work/play balance. I would also be eternally thankful.

I would love to give my wife one for her birthday. (which is today)


guessing I can't win because I'm not in USA :( android central still rock (brown nosing slightly)

me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me !!!!!!!!!!............

Jerry, I will grow a beard as big as yours if I get this baby. I will then use the N4 to post my monthly progress and email it to you. Think about it man...

I will feed him lots of apples :) and I'll take him to the apple store everyday just for fun ;).

Posted via Android Central App

There are a couple of Apples at work, that I'm sure he could feast on nicely ;) #holoyolo

Still using the original Nexus and waiting for it to kick the bucket. Definitely would be a nice upgrade. NEXUS 4 LIFE!

my little brother broke my nexus 4. and rocking my G1 till i get a new one. please choose me Nexus 4 All the way.

I would love to give it a good home. I'll give it tons of attention!

I'm fed up with my ridiculously slow Sony Xperia U. C'mon.. please, I need that Nexus 4! My girlfriend left me last night, I need a good looking substitute. ;)

Pick me please!

I need a new phone and I currently don't own any Android devices at all!!!

I'm a CrackBerry addict looking for some of that Android goodness!


Let me feed it my apple 4S. And let me come home Jerry. Please. I beg of you. Please. Let me come home.

Just what I always wanted. My own little Nexus 4. I will name him George, and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him...

Hugo the Abominable Snowman

We will take good care of it and make sure it gets fed enough HD videos via HSPA+ data connections. Probably on a diet though and unlimited feeding is not recommended these days.

I always root my phones, but I've never had a Nexus, and my HTC Rezound is getting really flaky and unreliable, so please, please, please, send me a Nexus 4. And thank you!

Please!! This would be the perfect phone for me!! My phone is about to tale a dump anytime.

I would love to win this phone. I have a Motorola Droid Bionic and am looking to switch phones when I switch carriers at the end of this month and this phone would be perfect for me.

I'm looking for a twin nexus 4 for my wife.
She is currently using the trusty old GNex, but would love to upgrade it into a new Nexus 4.

Also, my N4 would love to have another N4 to be his companion... ;)

The things I would do to win a Nexus 4 are very similar to what I would do for a Klondike Bar. In short; terrible terrible things.

I will feed apples him and love him like the beautiful piece Of technology he is

A Nexus 4 would be so comforting after the hailstorm I went through. So many bumps on my shaved head :(

I would really like to use this to try out a new carrier in my area. I'm tired of being a slave to Verizon!

There's only one true way to rock Android and that's on a Nexus, pick me Jerry and I'll take good care of her :-)

To whom it may concern,

I'd like to apply for the position of Jerry's Nexus 4 phone. I saw your add on Android Central and am very interested in the position. I have worked as the owner of 5 Android devices (3 phones, 2 tablets) including your phone's older sibling, the Galaxy Nexus, and I can tell you that I get along with their family very well. I take very good care of the phone children I have had and have not broken any. I can assure you that if selected for the position I will take very good care of your Nexus 4 and always keep up-to-date with the newest rom and gapps.

I see my future with this company working on developing for Android and would like to work my way up the company. I think I would be a good hire and have always wanted to be a Jerry's Nexus 4 phone owner.

I look forward to hearing from you.


Yeah I could definitely put this to good use. I have a loving home filled with love and joy.
Thank you come again.....

Who cares if its 8 months old, its still one of the best phones and I would love to have one!

Posted via Android Central App

I read your articles EVERYDAY.... My phone also just broke!!!! Winning would mean THE world!

I'll love him and feed him and name him George. Then I can finally experience that #HOLOYOLO

How can anyone not want a Nexus 4! My brother has one and loves it so I want to join him!

I promise to feed it both Skeuomorphic brand apples and Flat brand apples every day if you give to me. I desperately need a stock Android smartphone. Will you be the awesomerest and give me my first stock Android device? Go ahead and vote team rabbit. Rabbit eats apples too you know.

Wonder if you're picking randomly or picking the most-liked comment. Either way, this probably won't win.

I'm in desperate need to rid Verizon from my life and the Nexus 4 would fit nicely into my new T-Mobile account. Besides, I will gladly feed it my wife and daughters apples.

I would be willing to bite the hand that fed widdle ole' Nexy for so long. Might even cuddle Nexy a little to reassure her that her new home is safe from apple gremlins.

I'll feed it Apples daily. It will also get to break Windows. If I win this, I can assure you, it will have more fun with me than with anyone else. We will be partners for a long time and I will love him and hold him and take the best care of him. I will protect him, clean him, talk to him(Google Now). I had some large unexpected Dr. bills come up and had to sell mine to help pay and now I"m stuck with this Pantech Burst for a while.

I got a home for her even got a guy she can hang with his name is nexus..., nexus 7 he's a nice dresser he likes to dress in a purple Cruzerlite case, some times he changes it up into his grey asus and google and when he goes to the movies he goes poetic with a stand. Would love to give the nexus 4 a home and I'll keep her in a new Cruzerlite case too.

I dropped my nexus 4 after getting rid of my iPhone 5. All I want is a second chance!

Also as the "Apple Expert" at my retail job, the reactions were awesome every time I pulled out the nexus 4.
