Nexus 4 is the Best Smartphone Deal of the Year? You Decide!

The smartphone market is a fickle bunch. Consumers are always on the lookout for the biggest, brightest, and newest technology out there, and they won’t take no for an answer. Well, with the Nexus 4, none of that changes. The only thing that changed? The price.

If you’ve ever tried buying an unlocked smartphone to use on a GSM network, you’d know that you can expect to spend between $600-700 for the best and newest smartphone. It has been pretty much a given for at least the last three years.

Guess how much the Nexus 4 from Google costs. Go on, guess! You’re wrong. I can already tell you.

It starts at just $299 without a contract. That was not a typo. $299.

Unbelievable deal? You bet it is. I’d even go as far as to say it’s perhaps the best deal of the last two years.

Nexus 4 Specs

You see, for such a low price, you’d expect to get what you pay for. Google has done away with that notion, because this device truly is a top-end smartphone.

  • 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor
  • Adreno 320 GPU
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 8 or 16 GB of storage
  • 2,100 mAh battery
  • 4.7-inch IPS LCD display with a PPI of 318
  • Android 4.2

As you can see, these are specs you’d expect to find in an unlocked smartphone that costs $700 or so. Google has been reshaping the tech world for awhile now, offering gadgets at groundbreaking low levels like the Nexus 7 for only $199. With the Nexus 4, it now offers low prices in the smartphone world.


What Can You Do Without a Contract?

For one, you can go to T-Mobile and go with its $30 per month plan for unlimited everything and 100 minutes of talk time instead of spending $100 per month.

You can also switch up phones after a year of ownership (or less, if you really want to) rather than waiting the typical two-year cycle that contracts tie you into.

You really can’t lose here. Should you ditch your contract and head to the Nexus 4? Absolutely!
