Having a phone has changed from just having something to take and make calls, send and receive text and knowing what time it is. Now we want a phone that can do everything. I personally want a phone that will make me feel reliable and offer me flexibility and control over the things I want to accomplish each day.
I am a fan of the iPhone can’t be specific because I never owned one but it has more than enough features that would make me happy as not nay a family man but also an entrepreneur. Then you have HTC who always keep coming out with new phones. High quality camera and touch technologies. But those are just a few of them all.
Now to what this post will be all about; Google Play is offering the Nexus 4 now unlocked and contract free for $299.
Now where is the value you may ask and here it is.
With Google’s Nexus 4 you will have information at your finger tips. You will have all the best of googles apps sync onto your device to use. Google search is now smarter with the help of Google Now. You can now see how much traffic you will have to face leaving home for work and kept productive by being reminded of all the tasks you want to accomplish daily. You no longer need to go through your phone to get those information either. It all comes to you.
If you like the hands-off experience then no problem. Just ask and your phone will answer. This will be integrated with Google Search and the Knowledge Graph to give precise answers immediately.
There is also a new feature called Gesture Typing. Now you can just glide over the letters to make yours texts and emails in a great flow. The keyboard can also anticipate and predict the next word you’re looking for. Type with one hand and you can finish entire sentences in a flash just by selecting suggested words.
Now the Nexus 4 has a 8MP camera which takes sphere photos to enable you to capture the world around you. Pictures will never be taken the same. Video is also captured at a quality of 1080p. You can also capture still photos WHILE recording a video.
Nexus 4 comes with a cutting-edge Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 Pro processor, so you’ve got speed and power to spare. Zip around the web, experience rich 3D graphics and gameplay, and effortlessly switch between multiple apps without ever missing a beat. With 2GB of RAM and the fastest version of Android ever, Nexus 4 is our snappiest smartphone yet.
Now I can keep going on but I will cut it short right there and give you all the tech specs.
