Google Nexus 4 Review

Recently I had the pleasure of reviewing the New Google Nexus 4 by LG and the GivMobile plan. GIV Mobile lets you save money while saving the world with their Unlimited Everything Plans! Pick a phone from GIV Mobile’s large selection of phones or use your existing compatible GSM device. From basic phones to advanced Android devices, they have a phone to fit your needs.

Next you just simply pick a plan. Chose from either the $40 Unlimited Everything Plan or the $50 Unlimited Everything Plan. See which one best fits your needs and go with that. Each is simple to understand, and unlimited everything plans are an easy way to save on your wireless service.

Lastly you just have to pick a charity and your wireless service will do more than keep you connected, it can help save the world! Choose up to 3 charities and GIV Mobile donates 8% of your monthly plan. Click here to see their charity list.

So I picked the NEW Google Nexus 4 phone and chose my plan. First thing I noticed right away about this phone was the screen is big and beautiful. I love my tablet so a phone with a big screen is perfect for me. At a fairly nice size of 4.7” and 1280 x 768 display. This phone is so sleek looking and has a great design. I also like that this phone is made by Google meaning it you won’t feel like you have an outdated phone for sometime.

The screen is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 2 which is super strong and damage resistance. Along with outstanding surface quality which means because of the Corning Gorilla Glass 2 it’s much harder to get scratches. I don’t think I will be needing a screen protector anytime soon haha. This still doesn’t mean it’s okay to drop it. I recommend a nice case for added protection just like any other cell phone.

Comes with the awesome Google Apps and amazing Photo Sphere camera. Up, down and all around you, it’s like no camera you’ve ever seen.

There are 1000’s of apps you can download to your phone and try out. You will never be bored with the endless amount of games and fun things to do with this phone. Plus now I no longer need my GPS, because Google Maps has replaced this completely for me with the Google Maps App.

The newly designed Google Maps app makes navigating our world effortless. With this phone it’s almost impossible to ever get lost again. Discover new places and visit old favorites. Even if you don’t know the town that well or your off uncovering new favorite places, you will navigate like a pro with Google Maps!  Find the best places to eat, shop and more. Outsmart traffic jams. Know what’s down the road with Google Maps so you can choose the best route. If bad traffic lies ahead, dynamic rerouting will proactively suggest faster routes. Just one tap and you’re on your (new) way.

Just like any other smartphone I love that I can check my email and reply on the go. Browse Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest you name it. A Smartphone to me is like a mini computer that fits in your pocket, and also makes and receives calls. Also includes “Talk to Text” which means you can speak your message and see it typed on the screen for you. That has always been a feature I love on smartphones.

The video is very sharp and smooth on this phone. You can play movies with it’s huge selection of new releases and classics you can rent from the Google Play Store, or just add your favorite apps like Netflix, Hulu, Redbox and more. I of course immediately downloaded Netflix and signed in to my account. I was impressed by the speed and how quickly the movie played. I had no buffering issues what so ever.

  1. Jennifer Williams says

    I love new technology, this would definitely be an upgrade from my current phone. I keep holding on to my current one because it is small enough to fit in my pocket which is really important to me. I am small and all the new phones are so big. Hopefully someone will make a smaller one like this soon so I can finally upgrade.

  2. I love to support businees that give back! This is one cool phone and its on my Christmas list, too

  3. Oh I love that you do not have to use a wired charger! That is a big plus and you can easily charge while on the go. This looks like a great phone and I love the screen size.
