Guess we'll have to wait for the teardown.

No Need to wait for the teardown, check the FCC photos. Two small screws stand between you and a replaceable battery

Apparently its the same IPS True HD screen thats on the Optimus G. Reviews of that suggest it is right up there with the One X in terms of screen quality.

Due to the different screen technologies you will get the usual differences. So S3 will have true blacks but colours will be over saturated. Also AMOLED screens are more prone to screen burn (or at least the GNex screen is as my fiancee's screen has it)

The only thing I would say about the LG Optimus G is that no one has confirmed it doesn't support it either. As it is in the hardware, it may just be something people don't mention as no one outside of the tech community has heard of it. Also, it may sound a little racist, but if you tell most non-technical westerners that their phone is using a satellite navigation system design and operated by the Russian government, they may see it as a turn off. Sad, but true.

Very interesting, thanks.
I hadn't thought about the possibility that mentioning GLONASS in specs could be considered something negative.

For me, living in Scandinavia, GLONASS makes a huge difference in gps precision, so getting a phone without it would be just silly.

When do you think the first nexus 4's are in the hands of xda people? So that we can get a confirmation using gps test?

Depends how long they take to ship tbh, you will be able to purchase 13 days, so it shouldn't be too long now.

If the battery is so easy to access then what's the point of the two screws?

This is wrong. The Nexus 4 does NOT support MHL. It uses a similar but different technology called SlimPort. (It's listed on the Play Store specs sheet.)
