The popular LG Nexus 4 smartphone is now available on contract from O2, Three and Orange with prices starting from £26 per month, that’s a total cost of ownership of £624 over the duration of the two year contract (via BuyMobilePhones).
Orange offers 200 minutes, unlimited texts, 750MB data, BT Openzone Wi-Fi and two swapables. Three on the other hand increases the number of minutes to 500 but slashes the data allowance to 250MB and caps the number of texts to 5000 for £27 per month. That said, for another £1 extra per month, Three will offer all-you-can-eat data with the Nexus 4 and the tantalizing prospect of getting HSPA+ speeds for free.
The Nexus 4, which was launched back in October 2012, comes with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 system-on-chip clocked at 1.5GHz, with an Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a 4.7in True HD IPS Plus display with a 1,280 x 768 resolution, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a massive 2,100mAh battery and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The phone costs £249 (including £10 delivery) from Google Play and doesn’t come with a microSD card slot, probably its only big disadvantage (but then again so does the iPhone). You can check out our review of the Google Nexus 4 smartphone.
