Nexus 4 : Crappy Design…

I had a HTC Wildfire for 2 years without any problems. Now, 2 days after posting about getting a Nexus 4, the glass on the back panel is broken. I hadn’t even taken off the protective sheets yet.

The design of this back panel is a complete pile of shit! Why would you possible want to put unnecessary glass on a mobile device? It’s asking for trouble. It seems I’m not the only one, as seen here and here.

I’m not sure what to do now. I guess I better contact Google and see how I can get it repaired, or cover my hands in plasters to prevent the little shards of glass it is dropping from slicing my fingers to pieces.

What a total pile of crap! LG, you have failed. Google, you have failed.

The moral of this story is one of the following:

  • If you want a Nexus 4, keep it at home in a presentation case or it will break like a crappy piece of shit.
  • If you want a Nexus 4 and feel like taking it out of the house, make sure you wrap it up in cushions and pillows or one of those nasty-ass bumpers that make it look damn ugly, but less breakable.
  • Don’t get a Nexus 4, get a Samsung S3.

Cheers
