Hey guys, I've created a video review of the Nexus 4 after I've used the phone for awhile. I really found it quite impressive given its age; therefore I decided to start a video series on the Nexus 4 too - below is the first video where I'm talking about using the device as a daily driver today, 5 years after its launch. I've also compared it with the rival S3. Enjoy!

More Nexus 4 videos will come, some reviews of the best custom ROMs (Nougat and Oreo) and maybe some tips and tricks as well.

I had a Nexus 5 before, it broke and I brought a second hand Nexus 4... Almost a year ago.

It still looks nicer than the majority of new releases and performance-wise is very much usable.

The only thing that really shows it's age is the camera (both of them). It lags SO much and is not really stable.

I refurbished my old Nexus 4 and consider to use it as daily device. But, it's a 5 years old device and I wonder if it will perform enough under today's conditions, or not.

The Nexus 4 really has stood the test of time. It even has Oreo ROMs... Not to mention a slew of alternative OSes (UBPorts, Sailfish, Firefox OS, LuneOS...). Even with some of its shortcomings (rear-facing speaker, meh battery life and cameras, no sd card support) it's my favorite Android device ever made and I love the back design and wireless charging.
