Google Nexus 4

The Register has published a review of Google's competitively-priced (starts at £239) Android 4.2 smartphone.

Their verdict [edited]:

"Today, little else comes close to the Nexus 4’s quality/price ratio, but the limited storage options, poor battery life, potential fragility and the fact you can’t actually buy the thing direct from Google at the time of writing may make you look elsewhere."

"If you are after an unlocked, SIM-free handset then the Nexus 4 is a very attractive option. If, on the other hand, you are buying on contract, you’ll be able to find something better for less - the Samsung Galaxy S III, for instance. Then again, the ‘pure’ Android UI on the Nexus 4, free of phone vendor and operator add-ons, may raise the Nexus 4’s appeal to you."
