What’s interesting is that the second place has been taken not by a more modern phone like the Galaxy Nexus, but by the first Nexus ever – the Nexus One by HTC. This comes to show that smartphone users appreciate the quality design solutions – devices which not only pack the latest bells and whistles, but also have a premium look and feel to them. That last part is obviously something that Samsung is yet to master. For its next Nexus device, the Galaxy Nexus, Samsung had to streamline the design a bit, partly due to the new Android version the phone had to come with – ICS. This, combined with the fine specs and better overall execution allowed the Galaxy Nexus to position itself much higher than its predecessor.
It’s safe to say that LG has hit a very good balance between form and function with the Nexus 4. The phone is more appealing than the Samsung ones before it, and even if it doesn’t quite match the character of the Nexus One, it still has its incredible features and price to ultimately tip the scales in its favor.
