The LG-made flagship Android handset impresses with speed, software and competitive pricing.

It’s true: we’re a bit late reviewing Google’s latest Nexus-branded Android smartphone, which went on sale in the UK in November 2012. That said, stocks have been limited so far: a lot of keen would-be early adopters had to wait a while to get their handset, and the Nexus 4’s big marketing push is set for early 2013.

The latter is important, because together with Samsung’s Galaxy S III, the Nexus 4 is a phone that should continue Android’s march into the mainstream – not just as a cheaper alternative to Apple’s iPhone, but as a desirable platform in its own right.
