I am typing on one. Great phone except for the awful battery life. Good seller reviews. Heat from me

Thinking of getting something in this price range as a dedicated satnav (i.e. only use Wifi to connect to phone hotspot) has anyone gone down this route (pardon pun)?

I know I can use my phone but I want a dedicated unit like my old Tomtom, looked at "normal" satnavs but they haven't seem to have progressed much in years.

Might be worth looking at Nokia Lumia for this. Nokia maps allows maps to be downloaded for offline use - handy if you are going abroad, or to Wales.

Using one too. Great phone. Played with moto g, htc one, xperia z, note 2, but still prefer nexus 4.

How long is the warranty for? Not sure where they getting'new' stocks from

Cheers, although don't really want to have to learn another OS. I like Android for it's ability to sideload full apps from, cough, alternative sources. E.g. Locus Pro lets you download OS tiles from Bing so handy for walking, or satnav showing OS maps.

I got one of these at Christmas for £130 as an open box. Best phone I have had and much better than previous iphone 4. Nexus 5 is about £270 just now. Heat from me.

Mine is a 16gb one. 8gb might be a bit low on storage as there is no sd card expansion.

too bad it's not 16gb at this price

This article were a Nexus 7 is used as a Sat Nav may be of interest, it gave me the idea of something similar to what your considering

I own the 8gb nexus 4. I wouldn't recommend it.
Even using cloud storage and GMusic you'll fill it up with apps / app data before you know it. It sucks to have to choose between apps and games because your out of memory. Haven't had this issue since my budget android phone days (T-Mobile Pulse)

The pulse was my first android phone too, still got it in a drawer, battery as good as new. Was a good cheap little phone, had 'fun' trying to fit apps on, especially before the days of app2sd.

I use the following GPS apps :

Navfree (Offline mapping)
Mapfactor Navigator (Offiline mapping)
OruxMaps
DEM1
Waze
Cam Sam Plus (Floating Camera detector, can overlay any other running app)
ViewRanger
Locus Free

I'm a bit of a GPS nut to be honest lol

Yeah I loved that phone
The RAM and storage space really held it back but it was a great little phone!


Sadly this is for the 8GB model, still a great phone if you don't like apps and games

Bargain price for a quad core phone with 2gb memory and a nice screen. 8gb might be a problem if you have loads of files you need to have load on it.

People buy used crapola spec Samsung's on eBay for the best part of £100.

I have a Nexus 4 and Moto G... I'd get a Moto g everytime. Seems faster despite Nexus having double ram ie 2gb. Battery is almost 20hrs moto g compared to similar use on Nexus at 10-12 hours.

I have this phone, use Copilot sat nav nearly everyday which uses offline maps. Used to use TomTom but IMO Copilot is as good if not better. Cracking phone with 2gb ram, doesn't slow down like a lot of other phones. If you do get 1 and use the sat nav make sure you get a 2amp in car charger to keep the battery fully charged. 1amps are not enough.
Hope this helps.

Thanks OP, got one.. not great price and specs,, but best price for Nexus 4 which I was looking to get.

I have a 16gb one too and yes 8gb isnt much. I have about 1 gb music, no videos and the rest is apps with 1-2 gb to spare.

good mobile phone except camera

How bad is the camera then? I have a Sammy S2 and love that.

I speak from experience, the Nexus 4 is not a wow this is much better than the SGS2 experience. An SGS2 with a decent ROM is still a great phone. The N4 however does have some great ROMS. I use this ROM on my N4, best I've found >

The camera on the N4 is functional, it does what I need, it's no star for decent photographs though. The camera is the weakest feature of the N4.

I've got a Nexus 4 and used to have a S2. IMO the camera on the Nexus is not as good as the S2 but perfectly ok. The S2 camera pr
seems to produce photos with a touch more sharpness and vibrancy. The Nexus photosphere option is really cool though - you can use the results as the phone wallpaper and there websites where you can share and download other peoples efforts. In all others aspects, the nexus is a great phone at these prices. Must agree though that 8GB is tight. If you want to keep music and/or videos on it, i'd recommend the 16GB model.

I have 16GB N4 and it is a superb phone, much as I might like something newer like the N5, I really couldn't justify the cost. The N4 does all that I need without crashing or any problems. I have had it since launch. However it is 16GB and I don't think I could cope with only 8GB, and that is without media.

If you can cope with 8GB this is a great deal.

Yry sygic sat nav from play store, uses Tom Tom maps and is superb, all maps are stored on the phone. Gives a dedicated sat nav feel, rather than an android app. I've tried them all and this is by far the best, Internet connection or not.

Sygic is good I did used to use it, however the free offline mapping is good enough and coupled with a floating camera detection overlay such as CamSam Plus makes it very good. I use Mapfactor Navigator and Navfree for free offline mapping, which effectively means no Internet data via 3G or Wifi is required. Mapfactor gives you the option of using free mapping or TomTom mapping which you have to pay for and you can choose TomTom truck mapping if required.

Most of the other mapping apps I mentioned are for cycling/walking/ordnance survey and GPS tools.

Have a look at the post #13 where I list sat nav apps that I use. I recommend Mapfactor Navigator or Navfree which both have offline mapping (meaning no 3G/Wifi required). CamSam Plus is worth paying for so that you have a floating overlay with speed camera detection.

I used to have the nexus 4 8gb, i sold it for £200, to buy the nexus 5 a month later, hated the nexus 5 and sold it 3 weeks after, bought the moto g for £85 (good tesco deal early last year) 4 months ago i think, love it however prefer the n4 and picked this up:D going to buy a DBRAND wood skin (there awsome guys) and nokia wireless pad 15 quid

YESSSSS. i use spotify so 8gb is enough for me

Used to have the same problem, turned off WiFi, notification and NFC. Use it only when you want to check, this allows my phone to run as little as 2 days 20 hours all the way to 4 days.

Exactly what Sam021 said, more than doubles battery life.

Had one great phone but slippery as a bar of wet soap. Need a case or some form of protection.

Waze traffic has been in Google Maps since August. It also has offline maps, though the areas are limited and the UI terrible (find it by the "person" icon in the top right".

Wow, I have everything turned off and have juice defender installed but struggle to get 24 hours out of it

Camera is shocking, not a patch on my old SE K810i or C905. Since owning the N4 I've had to buy a stand alone camera. 1st of which got stolen (was stupid enough to leave it on the table infront of me at a pub restaurant out in the sticks - who steals compact cameras theze dats?!) so I've forked out £200 on camera now, wish I'd bought a sammy instead.

I went for the 16gb and its nearly full so I couldn't cope with an 8gb.

Re sat nav, I've never got lost with Google Maps but it doesn't seem to divert you when there's traffic

As others have said, Moto G is just an all round better phone.

Build quality etc is all great on the Nexus, but the battery life is nothing short of abysmal, and the LG "IPS" panel used isnt actually IPS at all. It's a glorified TN panel at best.
