I've been using the Nexus 4 for about a month now. Absolutely love it.
I've always preferred stock android experience over TouchWiz/Sense.
The phone has a great design and a brilliant display, but those wanting something exceptional should check out the FHD phones coming out off late. I preferred the camera on my Galaxy S II over the Nexus. But I honestly don't use it much.
The reception and call quality is fine. I've noticed some static, but that's very rare. The performance is unparalleled. If you've heard some apps opening faster on the iPhone 5, its only because those apps are made natively for iOS and ported to Android. So naturally it would perform better on iOS.
The software is beautiful, and more than anything, this will be the first device to get Android 5.0 which is one of the biggest selling points and something to look forward too.
Really disappointed with the battery life. Have to charge it at least once a day if I want to use multiple apps and data. Screen brightness is always kept at a minimum. Hopefully software updates will help.
If you're looking for a great Android phone, Nexus 4 is the one to have. I don't have LTE in my country, so the omission of that feature was no deal breaker for me.
Get yourself one, if you can find one!
