Why not a Galaxy Nexus? In all fairness it runs 4.2.1 perfectly fine... Only downfalls is the phone isn't as smooth nor is the camera as good. Screen is fairly good (excluding pentile)

But if you can hold out, you lived 99% of your life without this phone, you can wait a little longer, it is worth it! (although it is an excruciating wait)

Yep, one of the reasons why I didn't want the Optimus G either. I was actually thinking about getting one myself, back before I got my order in on Wednesday (which I got lucky and the phone shipped), but then I remembered, "So it's either getting another phone with similar specs, but a locked bootloader, bloatware, and no updates directly from Google (Carrier Updates, which suck, but of course, run custom roms), or get a phone that will be a lot cheaper, Google's ultimate flagship phone, direct vanilla updates, etc, but HAVE TO WAIT 1-3 months!??? Quite a hard decision, even for me, but if you're going to wait that long for a phone, by then, the Galaxy S4 will probably be out, and the Nexus 4 will probably be slightly outdated. Still a good phone though, just won't be the holy grail king of Android by then though.

But the optimus G is basically the N4's older bigger brother they share the same dna, it will compensate for me not having an n4 for the time being.

I miss my Gnex, but I wouldn't go back. External speaker sound alone is so much better on the N4.

I got my shipping email from Google. According to UPS it is at the local sorting center and will be delivered on Monday. It looks like it actually shipped yesterday at 3pm.

I ordered 2, and it is listed as 1.9lb. What weight do people see if they ordered 1 (and 2).

Where did you get that picture of the Nexus 4 LTE device?
