The Belaursian site Onliner.br has posted their review of the engineering sample of the LG E960 they have gotten their hands on which is claimed to be the Nexus 4. The review which is in Russian can be read over at the source link once translated and reveals a unit that software wise is suffering some software issues as could be expected for a prototype.
Among the issues discovered in the review unit are some non-working parts such as Beam and the capacative buttons appear to stop responding at times requiring a soft reset. Connection to a PC is still probelematic with no USB drivers available this causes the phone to go into an endless bootloop. The camera software and picture processing is also reported to be incomplete.
