All about Google nexus 4

By: Cathrine Mckay

It is a high-end handset. It has a glass front and is subtly adorned with chrome. It has a characteristic shape of the Nexus devices. Sontarrondis corners, top and bottom are curved. Dimensions are quite manageable for a device with a large screen. It is 13.39 inches tall, 6.87 wide and 9.1 mm thick.

On the left you will find a chrome button for volume and the slot for the SIM card. At the base of the unit, there is a microUSB port on the right and a power button on the top a 3.5mm headphone jack. The face includes just the camera 1.3 megapixel sensor and subtle barely visible. The back houses the 8 megapixel primary camera and LED flash.

The rear is where we find the personality of the Nexus 4. It has a checkered coating which at first sight seemed awkward. Now that we have seen and used, we have changed our minds.

The Nexus logo, for example, is positioned so it is seen clearly when using the handset. The bright rear gives an overall upscale effect.

When using the Nexus 4 as a camera, side dishes and adhering it provide the perfect shape for good hold. The new user interface camera Android 4.2 allows the use of a hand, which is not necessarily the case for all Android devices on the market.

Similar measures for high-end smartphones, and with only one strand construction weaker (due to a slight hollow feeling that we are more than willing to forgive) we certainly impressed overall.

Nexus 4 uses IPS technology with a resolution of 768x1280 pixels HD. With a density of 318 ppi, it is a configuration quite respectable. What's even more impressive is to see in real life. The pixel density is better than the Samsung Galaxy S3. Visually, it is a little less bright than the HTC One X, but on par with the performance of the LG Optimus 4X. The viewing angles are good and outdoors, everything looks really good. Brightness managed to reach the level of AMOLED screens, and whites are very pure.

Android 4.2, the latest version of Jelly Bean debuted on the Google Nexus 4, and presents some interesting updates. The basic principles are the same as previous versions: 5 home screens, a menu bar for notifications. Jelly Bean 4.1 had smooth visuals made the gesture with two fingers, and deployment of widgets. Jelly Bean 4.2 further enhances the movements with two fingers, introduced widgets on the lock screen and Daydream functionality equivalent to a screen saver. Start with the control with two fingers. While we could already pull down the notification bar and expand notifications with two fingers now pulling down with two fingers will access a menu of quick settings.

This grid shortcut gives you access to controls brightness, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Airplane Mode settings, not to mention mobile and battery information. These shortcuts are easy to activate, the information is displayed as symbols and words, and we are pleased to see the quick settings on Android.
