Whoa, the Nexus 4 was already a great deal at $299 for a 16GB top of the line pure Google Android powerhouse. Now the company has reduced the price of one of the best smartphones of 2012 by $100 to $199. The 16GB model is $249.99.
The Nexus 4 comes in both black and white. It sold-out almost immediately when it went on sale due to the low price and high specifications. The best features are that it receives upgrades to Android quickly and it is unlocked. Reviewers noted that it lacks LTE, has poor call quality and audio speakers.That means you can get a subsidized price for a non-subsidized phone. There is only one drawback to the Nexus 4, it does not use the LTE it uses HSPA+ data which is not fastest.
The price is a very good deal considering most used smartphone models from a year ago are selling for around $200 or more.
The Nexus 5 is rumored to be coming in the late fall and may be made by LG or another company.
It is not clear if this is a blow out before a new model or just a sale. Some contend that Google is getting ready for the cheaper iPhone 5 coming. Some rumors suggest that the Nexus 5 will be made by Google-owned Motorola, therefore Google doesn't want to compete with itself if it introduces the Nexus 5. Another rumors suggest the Nexus 5 will be made by LG.
