    I dont think Google are in any rush to update the hardware if the current ones are still selling well. Not a great deal of new tech to add to what the 4 has.

    Rumours are a replacement is coming in spring, in conjunction with Motorola this time.

    Re: News - A million Nexus 4 smartphones have been sold

    Hmm, I think I'll hang fire. Mind you, did I imagine that there were going to be a range of Nuxuses (Nexii?) from a bunch of manufacturers?

    Edit: What I mean is, there will be a 'Nexus Standard' which manufacturers will be able to use if their handset meets certain requirements.

    Well I think they'll consider rotating around suppliers, but they own Motorola don't they? So I'd expect them to leverage that really.

    Re: News - A million Nexus 4 smartphones have been sold

    Google needs to seriously push the advertising for this, it could be an iPhone killer if they can get the name out to people. Currently, while being literally the best phone available by a large margin, and costing practically nothing in comparison with other brands, millions more would by it if they only knew about it, lets be honest, only us techy nerds really knew about it's release. I still get blank faces when people ask my what phone I have and I reply with "a Nexus 4".

    CPU: Intel i5 3570k Overclocked @ 4.6Ghz GPU: MSI Twin Frozr 7850 @ 1000Mhz Cooler: Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 RAM: 16Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz

    Re: News - A million Nexus 4 smartphones have been sold

    Had my Nexus since mid December and love it - lucky to get one from the early release. No complaints really, great phone and great price.

    Battery life could be a little better but then again, I'm always playing with it!

    Not had mine let me down yet, I recharge it most nights but it's not usually that low and if I'm home and it's idle it's 2+ days of life in it. I keep meaning to get one of those USB booster batteries if I'm out for a long time but the impetus hasn't been there!

    Ditto except no issues with battery life, using Franco kernel nightly builds and this really improves battery life.

    Re: News - A million Nexus 4 smartphones have been sold

    Not surpirsed it's a great phone. However I went for Galaxy S3 Mini, the price difference what did it for me.

    £15.50 contract with O2 for 200 min, unlimited texts and 500mb with a free phone. Nexus was around double that.
