The Google Nexus 4 is the latest stock Android handset and has already sold out in the Google Play Store. The gang at iFixit did their usual teardown and found some interesting tidbits about the device. For example, the rear cover of the phone, usually just a slab of plastic designed to keep the battery from falling out, is actually a beehive of activity on the Google Nexus 4.
That is where the NFC antenna lies and a few pressure contacts power up the NFC antenna and connect the induction coil used for wireless charging, to the motherboard. Even though the Google Nexus 4 supports wireless charging, the accessory does not come with the phone out of the box.
The teardown did have its difficulties. Getting to the battery was a little tougher than usual, requiring the removal of two screws, a connector, and some adhesive material. Speaking of the battery, instead of putting the Micro SIM card under the battery, LG put it on the side of the phone and included a tool to pop out the card when needed.
The time has come to the LG Nexus 4 to take the ultimate drop test, like any new device, to test how tough is the phone's materials. The guy on the video drop the Nexus 4 two times.
The first drop was simulating a drop from the pocket, and the 2nd one from the ear. Thankfully, the handset remained almost perfect after the first drop, with no significant scratches to ruin its fancy glass panels. However, the second, higher drop cause severe damage to the back panel.
