Design and body
If the Samsung Galaxy Nexus using full body plastic, the LG Nexus 4 looks and feels more premium. From the front, the screen is slightly convex at the ends, like the Nokia Lumia 800. From the side, there is a dark blue plastic thin bezel, thereafter no matte metallic materials such as rubber which helps grip when holding the phone. Then finally in the rear, using glass as the iPhone 4, but is more attractive because there are patterns that change depending on viewing angle and lighting. Although the feel more premium, but in general, especially the front, there is always the hallmark of Nexus, which is the top and bottom of the curve. Feel grasping Nexus 4 is not as good as the Galaxy Nexus, which has a more curved body and fit in the palm of the hand, but the Nexus 4 also remain relatively comfortable, compared to the LG Optimus 4X and Motorola RAZR are very stiff.

But compared to competitors, upscale mobile sailed other IPS LCD, such as Nokia Lumia 920 (IPS), the Apple iPhone 5 (IPS), and HTC One X (SLCD2), in areas such screens Nexus 4 is not as good as them. Colors came out too not nonjok but viewing angle is quite good. Performance in the sun a bit better than the Galaxy Nexus. The screen also looks more closely or more recoils than its predecessor, thanks to Zero Gap technology from LG. Although many weaknesses as a whole screen Nexus 4 is still okay for the size of phones that cost below 3 positioned IPS screen mobile which we referred above.
