LG Nexus 4 smartphone available on £28 contracts

LG’s Nexus 4 smartphone can now be purchased on a two-year O2 contract from BuyMobilePhones from as little as £28.17 a month. That’s a total cost of ownership of £676 with 300 minutes, unlimited texts, 100MB and Priority Moments.

Alternatively, two slightly more expensive Nexus 4 deals from Orange cost £28.92 per month and offer either 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB of data or 400 minutes, unlimited texts, 750MB data, free BT Openzone Wi-Fi and two Swapables.

Either way, this costs less than Carphone Warehouse’s cheapest Nexus 4 deal. The phone, which was unveiled only a few weeks ago, costs £239 SIM-free, which means that you would be better off buying it outright and then paying a monthly fee to the likes of GiffGaff or Three - a move that could save you more than £200 over the duration of your contract.

The phone itself is a cracking one. It has a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro system-on-chip clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM (only the third mainstream smartphone to reach that figure), an Adreno 320 GPU, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 4.7in True HD IPS Plus display with a 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution, an 8-megapixel camera, a 2100mAh battery but only 8GB of onboard storage (and no microSD card slot).

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
