  • Wow! I’ve been really contemplating in getting this phone or a Samsung Note 2.

      Well, it really depends on you. The specs of both are almost the same and the main difference is the screen size, if you’re good with a very large screen then you should opt for note 2. I personally like nexus 4 as im a google fan 🙂
