Upon entering the Google Play Store you will find out that the rumours are true: the Nexus 4, both 8GB and 16GB, are sold-out. What is the reason for these two devices having so much success with the public and, therefore, are sweeping the phone market? Here are a few reasons.
first, and most important reason, is obviously the price. This product is sold directly from the Google Play Store and its starting price is £239 for the 8GB and £279 for the 16. These are quite low prices, especially if one takes into account the smartphone’s excellent specifications. This new Nexus includes, for example, a quad-core SoC, 2 GB of RAM and also is the first to include the new version of the operating system Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean).
The power of the Nexus brand is another factor, because obviously it is gaining followers. Also with this phone manufactured by LG, in either of its two versions, expands its product range considerably. This allows Google to improve their reputation when making Android handsets. LG is enhancing its reputation for trying to position itself at the level of other manufacturers such as Samsung. In addition, LG has also managed to improve its presence in the Android world.
Other reasons for the good sales of Nexus 4 is that its Android operating system is increasingly being spread on the market (just remember that the latest reports speak of 75% of global market share) and is improving by leaps and bounds over Apple and its iPhone 5.
At 9 am. yesterday, Nexus 4 went on sale and in the first couple of hours supplies of both the 16GB and 8GB versions were depleted. Reportedly, it seems there will be more devices in about seven to ten days.
