Google Nexus 4 has been one of the best smartphones in the Android market since its release late last year. Despite a rather flaky Camera to put it mildly and a battery life that is not the greatest, the Nexus 4 has been one of the top end Android phones of the world. The reason behind the success of the Nexus 4 is pretty simple. It is, that the device is available unlocked and off contract. Coupled with these two, the Nexus 4 so far has been one of the cheapest higher end Android phones you can pick. Add to it, the global availability of the device, you know that Nexus 4 was bound to be a winner.
However, the device is even more tempting a proposition, as Google has decided to slash the price of the LG Nexus 4 by as much as 25%. This is a huge price drop and several experts of the industry believe, the reason behind it is the impeding arrival of Nexus 5, a device that may be launched in the holiday season this year with the latest Android OS 5.0 or Keylime Pie running.
The price drop currently is applicable in countries such as US, US, Spain, Germany, Korea, Australia and Canada, but the offer is expected to reflect on the pricing in other countries too. The 8 GB variant is now $199 while the 16 GB one is $249.
