Jelly Bean Android smartphones do well on the Official Smartphone Rankings and the Google Nexus 4 is no different.  Maintaining fourth position for another week, the Nexus 4 is our featured device for Thursday.

"The closest thing to perfection :) This is what Android should be."  By ACEOFTWEETS on December 6, 2012

One would think, only in the land of fantasy & wishful thinking could we ever have a $299 device with-

  • A blistering fast Quad-core S4 pro processor;
  • Incredible HD IPS screen (w/ brighter & more true-to-life colors than AMOLEDs);
  • 2GB RAM;
  • 2100mAh battery;
  • Full NFC capability;
  • Wireless charging;
  • Great call quality;
  • Top end 8MP camera;
  • Beautiful, premium build/design;

And what really sets it apart-

First priority, immediate updates from Google (while others wait months) and the best Android experience on the planet till date. No contest.

This pure, beautiful & unadulterated Jelly Bean is smoother, more fluid & faster in every way than any other smartphone in it's league (costing 2-3 times as much, like the S3, Note 2 or One X). 

Aside from the partial lack of 4G, this is arguably the only top end, true world phone today. And with possible HSPA+ speeds of over 40MB/s, I'm not complaining :)

This beauty is the closest thing to perfection. Hands down.
