    This is a review of the phone, not the Amazon price. I bought it from Google for £279.
    Let me start by saying that this is the best phone I have ever used. I have used Android phones for over 4 years and this is the fastest, most fluid experience. The phone works perfectly, has never crashed on me and is a great piece of hardware, the cheap price tag is just another bonus in my opinion!
    Focusing on the main points, firstly the screen. The screen is amazing and looks very sharp, yes you lose a small amount at the bottom because of the software buttons but I love that they disappear when doing something which requires the full screen such as viewing a YouTube video, very subtle and polished. The battery life is also very good, I consistently get around 15-20 hours depending on use (and I use my phone quite a lot). The notification light is also a fantastic and useful add-on which is new to me as I am coming from a Galaxy S2, I used an application called Lightflow which allows me to change the colour of the light depending on the application, and the versatility of this is why I love Android. The camera is good, not as good as I expected but I think that the visual representation whilst taking the picture is not as good as the final picture, if that makes sense. When set to auto, the balance is slightly off and colour reproduction isn’t great, but for a phone camera I am happy with it. The build quality is definitely solid and for me the glass back looks nice but is nothing to get excited about because I have put a case on my phone, primarily because the phone slides when at a slight angle because of the glass but also to keep the phone safer if it drops and allow me to place it screen down. The software is great and I much prefer stock Android compared to skinned, I owned an S2 and rooted it (putting CyanogenMod on it), so decided my next phone should be a Nexus. Android 4.2 is incredible and I can’t wait till the next version, whether it be Android 4.3 or 5.0.

    To summarise, the screen is sharp and colour reproduction is great, battery life is also good and the phone feels solid. The only issue is with the camera, but this is not major and for a phone it is great. Definitely a recommended phone especially for the handset-only price of £279, cheaper than comparative flagship phones so do not hesitate to buy this fantastic piece of kit.

    I’m not going to talk about the price here. I just want to share my thoughts on what an amazing phone I’ve found this to be. First of all, I’ve got the 16GB version which I’ve found is more than enough for my needs. I bet 8GB is still enough for most users, specially if you don’t go and download all of your pictures that you have on your PC or Mac to the phone. I think it’s more convenient if you’ve got your images in the cloud. So, as far as storage space goes, it’s pretty much up to the user to decide if it’s going to fit their needs. For me, it is perfect since I don’t tend to download tons of pictures to my phone. I’ve got most of them on my Picasa web albums. I do have a fair amount of songs and apps but no videos. All in all, storage space is pretty decent.

    With regards to the hardware, the phone is beautifully made. It feels pretty good on the hand, it’s light, looks elegant and sophisticated. If you’re careful with your devices as much as I am, you’ll find that there is absolutely no problem with the fact that it’s got crystal on the back. And you can always get it the official bumper case or some other third-party case if you’re worried that it’s going to get scratched or something. The screen is pretty resistant and it also feels great to the touch of your finger. Your finger glides effortlessly across the screen and I’ve noticed that it’s quite resistant to smudges too. Of course it’s going to get finger prints on the front and back, but just a swipe with you shirt or any cloth that’s soft is enough to get rid of the finger prints or smudges on both the front and back of the phone.

    As for the experience of using ‘Vanilla’ Android on this device, it is pure bliss. The phone is fast as lightning, very responsive and handles all kinds of tasks effortlessly. You can be playing a game, receive a call, reply to a text message and return to your game with the ‘multi-task’ menu pretty easily and even be connected and synchronizing your accounts over the internet using either wi-fi or mobile network. This should come as no surprise since its 2GB of RAM and the Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon processor are quite the beasts. You do not need to worry at all about multitasking with this phone, trust me.

    Another great feature is the camera. It takes pictures at a resolution of 8MP and shoots video at 30fps in 1080p. It’s also got HDR mode, different ‘auto-scenes’, flash, touch focus, panorama mode and photo sphere. It’s great fun taking pictures with it and navigating through your panorama pictures right there in the phone and turning your 360 degree photos into ‘mini-planets’ using the embedded editing suite in JellyBean 4.2. Its front camera is also pretty cool for video calls and gives you great detail at 1.3MP resolution.
