"best phone for the money"

Let's make one thing clear, my country does not have carriers that subsidise the phone price, so whenever you go to a phone shop you have to put down all your cash.
Why the Nexus 4 caught my eye= simply put, the price. When it was released S3 was the go to device for everyone and since most wars are won in the specs race, this phone matched Samsung's flagship toe for toe. I do understand that a 16 GB cap is a disadvantage, but once you start efficiently using dropbox, drive and box, life becomes easy. Another disadvantage is the back glass which even with gorilla glass 2 is prone to scratching, so be careful, or do what i did and get yourself a transparent sheet to cover the back. Call Quality is fine and loudspeaker volume is more than adequate. Wifi antenna is not really great as it's range is slightly limited but not to the point that it becomes an issue. The display is not bright enough to be comfortably be used on a very sunny day but it gets the job done. Battery life is OK, i mean i don't use data services and still only manage to get a day and a half out of the phone, or maybe it's just me because i was used to using those Nokia feature phones with mind blowingly long battery life. Plus i like using the pure android experience. I always liked HTC's sense (used to use it on Eclair) and i did fell slightly bare bones when i read all the software goodies that samsung packed into it's devices. Just remember most of those features can be enabled on the nexus 4 through 3rd party applications, but even when i had these features such as smart stay and the floating video player (forgot what it's called) i never felt the need to use them. I realised that these are just marketing tactics to lure people in. The camera is just average.
yes, it does take really good looking shot when under really good light but the rest of the time the shots come out average, nothing spectacular, but to put this into perspective i would not call the shots taken by the s3 anything special either. So all in all i can say is that getting the Nexus 4 is one of the best things that happened to me It is a great phone which more than makes up for it's short comings by offering the great price
