The Nexus 4 offers a 4.7-inch, 320 pixels-per-inch display with 1280 by 768 resolution protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Pricing for the Nexus 4 starts at $299, and it competes with smartphones like the Apple iPhone as well as fellow Google-powered devices like the Samsung Galaxy S III and Microsoft Windows Phone 8-powered smartphones.
