Nexus 4? Or wait for Nexus 5?
My HTC Desire HD is starting to show it's age. It's coming up towards three years old now and out of all the phones I've owned, it's been the best by far. I'm looking to buy a new, unlocked phone for my giffgaff SIM card. While I'd like a Samsung Galaxy S4 or an HTC One, I'm not willing to spend £500+ outright on a new phone no matter how awesome and shiny.
I've recently been pointed in the direction of the LG Nexus 4. It looks like a really affordable phone now the price has dropped to £159, and the spec is none too bad either. Rumour has it though is the price has dropped because the Nexus 5 is due out imminently with Android 5 on it, and the remaining Nexus 4 stock needs to be shifted. My question is, should I go for the 4, or wait for the 5? I'd be interested to know what kind of estimated price the Nexus 5 will go for new and what possible spec it may have? If it's priced with top end smart phones, I'll go for the Nexus 4, but if the spec is better and the price in a more affordable range, I'd be tempted with the 5. Is anyone aware of the suspected release date?
Also, does anyone know if the Nexus 4 is easy to root?
