Just found this in a box with both a cracked screen and the new screen replacement. I got it working and installed Unlegacy from XDA. I'm now on Android 8.1 and it's running as well as new. Not worth much but as a phone it's really nice to see it supported and functioning for so long. Even the battery is working fine after 6 years in a box.

My second smartphone I had back in high school. Would admit I had a love-hate relationship with it lol
A great device, but it aged too quick against it's competitors; and with flaws including massive overheating for a phone and battery issues, I gave up on it a few years later and traded in for a HTC One M9 in senior year. Also this phone is relatively way less durable as my Nexus 4 suffered a fall of few inches from the ground and the next thing I saw was its touch sensor going useless, rendering my phone unable to be used any more. Had to dispose it off. But nonetheless, seeing this phone is another memory trip.

my second smartphone, such a great device
back then i didnt know there was a difference in android devices
i loved stock android without even knowing
still do to this very day!

This phone was used extensively by my son. It was a nice & cool gadget. Since he migrated to Apple Phone about 2 years ago, this phone is lying idle. However, I decided to try my hands on it. Its works fine except its response is a bit slow and battery is now poor.

Sometimes it goes into hibernation on its own forever (does not respond at all) and I had to hard press the switch on/off button to reboot it.

Still using mine daily as a work phone since Google had the runout sale in 2013 just before Hammerhead released (AU$299). Have replaced 2 batteries. Power button gets hopeless but benefits from disassemble and clean internally. Qi charging has been awesome for years. After 5 years the web browsing is now noticeably slower (comparative) to other devices. Today there was a special on Moto G6 Play AU$299. It's hardly better than the Nexus 4 I have for the same price - 5 years later... Best phone I have ever had.

Yes, my wife's Nexus 4 is over 4 years old and still going, but has a few problems. The main one is the on/off switch, which rarely works so we have to leave it on all the time; sometimes the battery runs out and takes forever to recharge. In performance comparisons with my Sony Xperia SP C5303, the Nexus beats the Sony hands down, and is more bulletproof. If I want to do web browsing, I use the Nexus-- much faster. Will keep using this phone until it dies, then consider upgrading to maybe Moto G6S Plus or Nokia 6.1. Will not get an iPhone on principle-- what a ripoff they are?

I remember i buy this phone way back 2013, now I'm saving money to buy a new one, but what can i say up until now this phone is like bruce lee, i still love it, in gaming playing final fantasy exvius there's no lag simultaneous cast of different magics, there's no lag still superb, the reason im buying a new one is storage capacity, I'm still aiming for Snapdragon variant it never failed me when it comes to performance.

This phone was the first love of my life back in 2012... I gave it to someone who desperately needed a phone because her phone broke, but I was using it till very later on, I used the Samsung Galaxy Alpha.

It was cheap to buy, yet had that premium quality feel to it. It was the closest experience you could get to stock android at the time. It was very advanced at the time of release, to the point the hardware was ahead of most of the phones on the market even two years later... and it's something to say considering the hardware improvement rate of Smartphones exploded since then. So overall, everything ran very well on that phone without a single problem.

The only problems bugging me with that phone at the time were the glass screen on the back, the heating and the battery.

The back of the phone's glass was a joke : So many friends that had the same phones had this glass cracked less than two months after owning it... including myself. It was mandatory that you bought a very good case as soon as you own the phone. Otherwise, I was playing a lot Robot Unicorn Attack 2 at the time and I remember I couldn't play more than 15 minutes because the phone was becomming stuttery and very hot. As for the battery, it was bearable at first, but the durability dropped quickly after a year.
