    Is the Nexus 4 still a good buy at $149? The specs aren't that bad and the 2GB RAM should keep it going for a while. It is also getting the Lollipop update. What do you guys think?

    Any particular reason you say that? Looks like Nexus 4 has better specs than the Moto G across the board, except maybe battery. What makes the Moto G a better buy?

    What does a Nexus 5 have to do with it, you asked about a 4. The Moto G runs smooth, has amazing battery life and pretty much no bloat.

    The only thing I can see being better on the G is the battery life and maybe the camera. Other than that I think the nexus 4 has it beat. That being said, battery life on the N4 was pretty abysmal as I recall. I'd have to charge mine by early-mid afternoon on some days. For $150, if I needed a phone I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. I for one would purchase it over the Moto G but that is just me.

    It was a typo. I meant Nexus 4.

    I meant Nexus 4 all along. It was a typo.
