Bring Back LTE on the Google Nexus 4 Running Lollipop

One of the predecessors of the latest, largest, and greatest Gooogle Nexus 6 (the Google Nexus 4) has a bit of a strange history. When the device was announced, it was an LTE-ready handset (kind of). Unluckily for Google, the company never obtained regulatory approval for its usage on the device, and LTE connectivity quickly became an issue and the...

Nexus 4 Users, It’s L-Preview Time

 During the I/O 2014 keynote, Google unveiled Android L.
