Nexus 4/Android 4.2.1 review

Pro:

  1. Fast.
  2. Easy app-switching using the multitask-button.
  3. Crisp and clear screen.
  4. Great battery life (except when Skype is installed).
  5. Great voice recognition.
  6. It excited Kalverstraat Phone House employees.

Con:

  1. Phone no longer mountable as usb drive: hard to transfer files using Linux. Why?
  2. Glass back is slippery (phone has fallen twice already).
  3. Volume/power buttons almost opposite each other: hard to press one without pressing the other.
  4. Settings icons in the pulled down status bar aren’t switches.
  5. Photo quality still less than iPhone’s.
  6. Settings button re-appears in every app, so they might as well have kept it in its standard place.
