    Not bothered about google knowing what I’m up to. Any reason not to get one? Also where can I get one cheap? 🙂

    I have a brand new Nexus 4 8GB for sale if you’re interested?

    It’s been out of the box once just to have a play. Save yourself £15 on the Play Store price and not have to wait a few weeks for delivery 🙂

    Nope, they’re most lovely. Google play is the only place you’ll get one cheap, assuming you mean to buy as opposed to get on contract.

    Buy one from Google play store. I bought one Thursday and it arrived Friday so there seems to be no stock issues at the minute.

    So far I’m really impressed with it.

    Do it!.
    I bought mine back in early December when my old phones contract was due. I’m now on a sim only deal with orange for £10.50 with the same minutes/data/texts as my old £35 a month contract.
    its the fastest phone out there. its slick and very very very nice.
    I worked out that if you pay £35 a month on a 2 year contract yet get the same data/texts and minutes as a £10.50 a month contract the rest was going to pay for the phone. which over a 24 month period is…. a total of £588! consider that

    They’re fantastic, just get one. If you decide to wait there will always be another better phone around the corner.

    My wife’s turns off when she charges it……that’s a reason, also drops network a lot ……….that’s also a reason. Other than that mint!

    New Google phone is already in the pipeline apparently, so potentially yes ‘for the price’ there may be a better one on the way sometime soon.

    There is always something better in the pipeline. If you wanted to wait for something better you would still have a Nokia 402!

    Writing this from mine, things I don’t like, lowish storage, camera not as good as much of the competition (but still the best I’ve had), no proper led notification. Other than that it’s great, altogether in a different league to my old Desire, for the price it’s a steal, amortising the cost of the phone over two years I’ve got unlimited everything for £20ish a month.

    LED notification – can’t see what else you’d want… Install Lightflow (free).

    No 4g and no SD? Shame, I like LGs’.

    LTE enable’able in software apparently
    No SD.. neither’s an iphone, you can always stream or connect a thumb drive with otg cable if you’re really stuck or work in the clouds 😉

    As above, decent contractless phone.. mine shipped yesterday – with a Nexus 7 to keep it company in transit 😉

    My wife’s turns off when she charges it……that’s a reason, also drops network a lot ……….that’s also a reason. Other than that mint!

    My Optimus 2x did that until I sent it back for repair.. was very unimpressed by LG at that point.. been more that fine since I had it fixed.

    Mine’s nice. The phone itself is uber fast and jelly bean Android is very slick compared to my last phone (gingerbread).

    Size wise I was worried I might find it too bulky, but actually it’s just about OK because it’s quite thin

    I got mine on a contract during the “nexus drought”, and the deal I ended up with is about the same total cost as buying it and going sim only. Check out one of the bargain basement phone websites and try getting your network to match it – worked for me.

    There’s a few annoying things of course, such as Google now, which is not quite clever enough to be useful yet (although it’s spooky what it already knows about you!) but it often pops up when you don’t want it to

    All in all I’m pretty happy with mine

    So I’ve been awake for a few hours, bored so I’ve been sat here playing with my phone and setting up all the widgets on the home screens.

    What do you think?

    You can turn off the location settings and Google Now. In fact there are many ways to stop the evil empire from running it’s grubby fingers through your data.

    It’s no wonder I struggle to get a good nights sleep!

    It is it actually a very nice NASA image of the sun. I like it as it matches my choice of ties.

    Has anyone found a way of disabling the swipe action for Google now? I.e. swipe up from home button

    Gets annoying when browsing and scrolling etc

    Muggo what home screen software are you using?

    The clock and weather are “HD widgets” and the power controls are “power toggles”. The power toggles app is free and very good as you can select from loads of different buttons.
