After selling happily alongside its’s younger brother for almost two weeks, Google has finally removed the Nexus 4 from the Australian Google Play Store, leaving you with just one phone option – the Nexus 5.
Even with a price drop of $100 being applied to both the 8GB and 16GB Nexus 4 back in August, it’s taken until this morning for the device to follow the U.S. Google Play store to see the Nexus 4 sold-out. The Nexus 4 has been in-stock on Google Play ever since stock levels stabilised earlier this year, after an extended period of being sold out after the massive rush on November 14th last year.
While it lacked LTE, a great screen and a great camera, the phone was still an excellent value purchase, with many users managing to overcome the stock Camera experience to achieve some really stunning photos. It’s sad to see the sparkly backed phone head off into the sunset, but many won’t miss the broken glass front/back that was so easily achieved with the Nexus 4.
Any which way you look at it though, the Nexus 4 is now no longer available in Google Play, so it’s down to a fond goodbye, Vale Nexus 4.
Did you purchase a Nexus 4? What was the best thing about the phone?
