    The problem with megapixel counts in cameras is that the sensor is always the same (tiny) size, so as the quantity of pixels goes up, the quality of each of those pixels goes down. Hence the HTC One's 5MP camera, using 2.0 micron pixels for better low-light performance. I can't think of any photo I've ever taken on my smartphone I'd want printed out at a size sufficiently large to show a difference between 8MP and 12MP anyway.

    RAM uses more battery as well, 2GB has always been ample in my Nexus 4 so can't think it's worth the price increase & battery decrease to go higher.

    More storage would always be a godsend in a Nexus, mind. 16GB in the N4 is painful still

    Do the Nexus devices normally come out in the UK play store at the same time as the US or do we have to wait?

    The Nexus 4 was released on the same day in the US and UK (13th Nov 2012), but at different times - approx. 9am PST and 8am GMT respectively.

    It wasn't possible to pre-order the smartphone through the Play Store, so you had to keep constantly F5'ing the page at the time they went on sale in the hope that the 'Add to basket' button would magically appear and you could get through the checkout process before the page timed out. Some people found that the N4 would disappear from their basket when they got to the checkout, while others were able to order it successfully, but got charged twice or had their order cancelled later that day.

    In the UK, the N4 sold out in less than 15 minutes and overloaded Google's servers - something that should be impossible especially considering that Apple's servers do not have any issues when new iPhone's are released!!!

    I was on my way to work when they when they went on sale in the UK, so had to wait several weeks for the Google Play Store to be restocked (4th December 2012). Shortly after I purchased mine, they sold out again very quickly. It wasn't until 30th January 2013 that you could order a N4 again and even then you had to wait 1-3 weeks for it to be delivered.

    Hopefully Google will be able to better anticipate demand this time and won't mess up the launch of the Nexus 5! If you are thinking of getting one on release day, prepare to be disappointed.

    I agree. 16GB is a pitiful amount of storage for a smartphone in 2013, especially when it costs Google less than $10! Hopefully we will start to see smartphones with 64GB and 128GB next year, but I doubt it. 32GB will probably be the maximum amount of storage for the next 2-3 years.

    @Arthur Thanks for a detailed answer.

    I will probably get the N5 as I really need to upgrade my S2 which has a cracked screen but have read that the Galaxy S5 (due out in April ish) will be a mega powerful phone with 4gb of ram and up 64gb extra mem although specs are leaked and could be wrong.

    The Samsung Galaxy S range is stupidly expensive as well, whereas recent Nexus devices (7, 4, 10, new 7) have all been remarkably reasonably priced.

    yes but with the exception of the nexus one they do not have an sd card slot and 16gb of internal storage is pants.
