Nexus 4 Review - the best pure Android phone of 2012 | AndroidTapp. Nexus 4 may be the best pure Android phone, and it may be the least expensive and best of the current crop; but, as long as it won't connect to 4G LTE it is not for me. I really like my big, beautiful Note II, and it is essential to me that it connect to the Verizon 4G LTE network. Trying to sell me this phone is like selling me a Ferrari body without an engine; or, with a 4 stroke motorcycle engine. It's pretty, but you wouldn't want to drive it anywhere. I have been reading that some Canadian hackers have been able to activate the 4G chip inside, and connect to Canadian 4G. However, I don't plan on moving to Canada anytime soon. Unless, of course. there is another war and they reinstate the draft for old men.
