Anybody thinks the Nexus 4 was built from rejected bin Optimus G parts?
So what do you guys think?
I'm still puzzled by how Google can sell basically the same phone as the Optimus G for half the price.
Benchmarks show heat issues with the N4 and very low heat tolerances before the CPU/GPU starts throttling massively cutting performance basically in half.
So maybe when Google approached LG to build the N4 and told them they need to sell it for $299 off contract, LG was like..,"hmmm.. we do have a bunch of rejected bin parts from the Optimus G we could sell for half price. Deal, we'll build the N4 for $299 Cha-Ching!!$!"
Manufacturers bin parts all the time, Intel, Nvidia ect. bin their CPU's and GPU's and basically put the rejected ones in lower end models and downclocks them.
LG makes some amazing IPS $1000 panels for Apple and Dell, the ones that don't cut it get sold for basically nothing and put into cheaper non-brand name cases (Yamakasi,Acheiva ect) and sold for $300.
Makes me think that maybe LG is doing the same with the N4 line up. What do you guys think? These thermal issues the N4 is facing is pointing me in that direction. Lower bin parts.
