    Android Authority is the best Android website! Very informative, has awesome articles and prizes. Hope I win this time! :D

  • I feel that the Nexus 4 phone is going to put significant price pressure on all manufacturers as it now has the retina display, but at a higher resolution and bigger screen than the iPhone. Not to mention the other hardware specs are all up to par with everything else out on the market.

  • blowntoaster

    So why am I here? Not to say how incredible is the Nexus-4 nor “Chane ke jhad pe chadhana” meaining praising till sky’s limit. I just want to share my experience here. I took my first android {directly GB :( } a year ago and have been a regular visitor to android authority. i learned to root my phone from here, learned many tweaks. I would say that this site in particular has been a daily dose in my life (along with Google of course lolzz). Then I got to know about the Nexus devices and boy…….I wish everyday to atleast use that device once, if not mine may be my friend’s. I am from India and I have become a BIG Android Fan Boy since I knew Android’s potential but I am very sorry to say that though there are android users in India but hardly anyone has a Nexus device :( I wish to see all my friends, family members and other users here to use android really. I realized this a year ago when I wanted to use some apps like Whatsapp but there were hardly 10 people from my contact list that were using it, now many use but when u ask them which new phone us got, they say Samsung Galaxy Y Duos, no Nexus. :`(
    I am doing Engineering and wish to see all my friends use Android probably Nexus, atleast and hope who knows if we get one from android authority…….fingers crossed

  • daveloft

    Can’t wait to win :)
