Like i said, operationally it might be better but no warranty support and spare part hurts real bad (spent over $140 to replace a screen so i know how it feels).

That's consumer behavior. We all believe we made the right choices, sometimes we are also sure that no better choice exists

Agree to the support/spare parts thing. Can be a bummer (though I've never had to enforce my warranty for any of my devices, hope it remains so) does the warranty (on an s3 bought in India for instance) cover damage from falls? And I guess it's a repair guarantee n not replacement.

>PPO boxes are mostly unopened for whatever reason.HSG arent so lucky to have sealed boxes delivered to customers but very few issues of tampering with open boxes have ever cropped up. (just 1 user I've read of in the last 7000+ posts). As a precaution NEVER SIGN BEFORE INSPECTING THE PACKAGE.

Thanks for pointing out to a very valid issue.Insurance to cover the full amount is also important. Iam ordering two phones together as Google 2 day delivery cost+ forwarder freight shipping cost+ courier service fee for handling customs is the same for one or two N4 phones. HSG delivery to Hyderabad clears customs at Delhi (higher duty) + box gets opened is the sticking point. HSG express shipping cost before customs alone comes to $28 or so where as PPO charges Rs 1300 /per phone for total freight from usa+customs +onward bluedart.delivery(octroi factor not included)
I guess I will try both HSG and PPO .
when 1st order is delivered from Google to forwarder 's Usa office,I will try the second one.

Re: Nexus 4 Indian Thread [Pricing, Availability, Reviews, Support and More]
Hi all friends, I am an user of N700(Galaxy Note). I know every phone has some issues, even Galaxy series. My point was price. 28k is not a good deal for purchasing N4,compare to 22/23k. I thought LG removed the buzzing problem issue in their 2/3 lot. But unfortunately it still exist. My next phone is going to be N4 or may be N5. It is huge demanding phone and we all know we can't expect a best hardware with this price and from LG like company.

You mean N4 with all the problems is ok for you at Rs 23 k price point & not at 28k ebay price? You are right pricing wise still Galaxy nexus was priced at around $500 or so with out contract for 16gb where as N4 16gb is priced at 349 ex factory gate.so LG cut corners.

app store
hey guys, i have a query,
if i import this phone, how will the app store work,?
i mean will the app store be different than the indian android phone market,
will the apps will be priced in dollars instead of rupees etc,
i am asking this cause i had a htc windows phone imported from us and its app store was completely different than the app store in india, there where a lot more free apps and were priced cheaper , in rupees.
also what else on the phone i can expect to be customized for USA markets that might not function here properly.?

thanks..

Again Stop talking from your arse .
USE THE ****ING DEVICE BEFORE SAYING LG CANT MAKE GOOD PHONES.
LG actually has very very well built phones and have always had well built phones only problem was their software and updates were down right terrible .
Only reason there was a shortage of supply is because Google didn't estimate so many sales no fault of LG , And again the reason LG is cheaper than Samsung is because Google is selling it directly not LG unlike galaxy nexus which was also dropped to 350 when google started selling it .

Stop Spreading FUD no one is asking u morons to buy the phone, but don't spread stupid rumors and create FUD your kind of people are the worst king 0 first hand experience and knowledge but talk big words straight form the ass .

I've owned a Nexus S , And Galaxy nexus before nexus 4 and and build quality wise Nexus 4 is the best built phone LG didn't cut any corner's .

The Play Store detects your sim card and shows the local play store version, not the indian. If you want the American play store, you can root your phone and use market unlocker app.
