The LG Nexus 4 has something special that we haven’t seen on other Android smartphones in a while now – great build quality.
New LG Nexus 4 sports a new rear case?
Ever since it was released, we’ve praised the pure Google phone for its exceptional build quality and styling that even rivals the likes of the iPhone 5. However we did have some complaints about rear glass that seem to be more fragile than we hoped.
Well there may be some bad news today disguised as something good. We’ve been informed by many readers who recently received their LG Nexus 4 that the smartphone looks a little different than what we saw last month. Supposedly, LG may have modified the rear crystal glass case of the Nexus 4 to make it less susceptible to cracking.
On a sad note, the LG Nexus 4 now doesn’t seem to glitter like the earlier batch. No matter what angle you hold it at or lighting conditions. it seems to have lost the glitter effect.
At this time this remains unconfirmed but give that we’ve had a dozen readers complain to us about their findings already, there may be something different about the newest batch ship from the Google Play Store.
We’ve contacted LG about this and will update this story once we get a reply on what is possibly a new LG Nexus 4.
