Re: Pricey... very nice.
DC-HSPA+ on all US bands.
LTE on T-Mobile and ATT's bands.
Dump CM10.1 on there and if I was in the market for a worldphone, this would be at the top of my list.
| |said by IllIlIlllIll:$760 is inline with other top of the line unsubsidized phones. I am grandfathered into Verizons unlimited data. If I switched to their new plans it would cost me, at a minimum, an extra $1500 over two years. So even though I would get a subsidized phone for around $200, I would pay at least $1500 more over a two year period. So it's cheaper for me to pay the unsubsidized cost of a phone and stay on my grandfathered plan, since over a two year period it would cost me much less.
We will soon see smartphones reaching $1,000+.

said by TriForce:The Nexus 4 has a 7 band LTE chip in it, likely disabled by FW. Of course, it would trash the market putting out a $350 high end device with those capabilities. LOL!
The Nexus 4 does not have "official" LTE support, and it's limited support. Xperia also has microSD support and a 1080P display. Are those worth the extra cost? It depends.
Google did it better, and cheaper than the mainstream players. And, it scares the crap out of them.
