PSA: No, The Nexus 4 Does Not Have Wi-Fi Calling

I hate to be the bearer of bad news a second time-around considering I’ve already posted this very same message once before. However, thanks thanks to a generic T-Mobile support page, there’s a new rumor quickly making its way around that the Nexus 4 does in fact have Wi-Fi calling if purchased through T-Mobile. Except, it doesn’t and it’s worrisome that this story is spreading as fast as it … [read full article]

As I saw it, T-Mobile appeared to be bumping the off-contract price against Google’s own pricing making any Value Plan deal with T-Mobile not much of a deal at all. As it turns out, perhaps the fault doesn’t … [read full article]

Nexus 4 Battery Life Tested, Early Results Show Less Than Impressive Results

Google went on the record with The Verge last week and mentioned two reasons why LTE was left out of the Nexus 4: the first reason was building a carrier independent device couldn’t be achieved with LTE and the second reason power draw. There’s little argument that LTE does in fact use more power than HSPA+ or 3G, however LG did include LTE in the Optimus G design, which is the basis … [read full article]

PSA: Sorry Everyone, No Wi-Fi Calling On The Nexus 4

In the hopes of clarifying a bit of confusion and concern I see in the comments, I’ve reached out to T-Mobile to confirm that there will be no Wi-Fi calling on the Nexus 4. Now, odds are greatly in favor of this not being a T-Mobile decision anyway as a Nexus device generally doesn’t receive any carrier input. Therefore, T-Mobile likely had zero input in the manufacturing of the device and couldn’t … [read full article]
