Google Changes Nexus 4 Design For Improved Usability
While we are expecting some sort of confirmation concerning the Motorola X Phone or the Nexus 5, Google has been busy with other matters like changing the design of the Nexus 4.
Yeah, you heard me. If you haven’t got your hands on the Nexus 4 yet and want to, you are lucky because you have the possibility to buy the tweaked version. At first was seen as a rumor which was confirmed afterwards, the news appeared firstly on online German publication Mobiflip.
However, don’t get too excited because you won’t get to see a totally different Nexus 4 as the changes are minor, so small that can’t even be noticed if you don’t take a closer look. Looking at the smartphone’s front side you won’t notice modifications because there aren’t any. On the back side, on the other hand, there are some minor adjustments. The biggest modification, if we can call it this way, is represented by two minuscule numbs, as you can see in the image.
So, what’s so cool about two tiny bumps added to the back of the phone, you might ask. Well, while they seem useless as first glance, they actually make a difference when it comes to sound. The current Nexus 4 has an entirely flat back side, which makes the ringtone more difficult to hear when you’re getting an incoming call. Also, the flat back side is one of the reason why the Nexus 4 can be scratched so easily, not to mention that the smartphone can easily sip of the surface you put it. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the Nexus 4 isn’t a great phone and the still very high demand says the contrary, but the minor inconveniences are annoying.
However, with the nubs all that will go away. Apart from this, the Nexus 4 has suffered another modification. We’re not sure why, but the revamped version of the device has a slightly smaller lens outer ring. Again, we don’t see any good reason why Google would make such a change, maybe for an improved appearance, though I don’t anyone had a problem with the way the phone looked.
Some customers said that have already received the facelift Nexus 4. Have you?
