      Please beware that T-Mobile will charge you 20 installments of $20 each after you pay the $199, and on top of that you’ll have to pay the activation fee of $35 so the phone will end up costing you $634 before taxes. I’d say, borrow the extra $150 up front and save yourself $285 in the long run.

    Wow, I have been looking at the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (last November’s version) to buy either on the Google Play Store or eBay if priced under $300. But now if I want the Galaxy Nexus, it will have to be from eBay or craigslist. Or I can order the LG Nexus 4 when available for $300 (8GB) or $350 (16GB). Although I don’t think 8GB will be enough. But I really didn’t want another LG Smartphone (as I have the LG Thrive now and not happy with it) and I didn’t want to spend over $250, maybe $300 considering I just bought a Nexus 7 (16GB) at the end of September. I’m not sure what to do now. I also found some Samsung Galaxy S3 on eBay used for under $400 in good condition.

    I wonder how this LG Nexus stacks up with other smart phones like the Samsung Galaxy S3 (AT&T) and others in its price range?
