Google "The Nexus 4 is absolutely wonderful, but it's also vexing. Frustrating. Annoying. It's easily the best Android phone on the market right now, and has some of the most powerful software that's ever been put on a mobile phone. It's an upgrade from last year's Galaxy Nexus in every way. It's terrific - save for one small thing. " Lack of LTE, obviously. Bigger issue for me as a European: glass back. Apparently it cracks. Who'da thunk?

No LTE isn't a biggie for me. Glass cracking is definitely a concern, but the main thing I'm worried about is battery life and whether there are any build issues with early batches; like screen lifting on some early Nexus 7 models.

Either way, I'll wait for some reports from users on forums before I decide. All these site/magazine reviews hardly translate to real-world use in most cases. Most of them put a review up after a only couple of days of usage. The Verge is often too forgiving to big companies like Apple and Google, probably because they don't want to burn bridges.

I expect battery life to be quite good, though YMMV, of course. Non-removable battery and non-replaceable glass back seem like bigger issues to me. Probably not deal breakers.
