Using the Nexus 4 in 2018- With Android 8.1 Oreo

Using the Nexus 4 in 2018- With Android 8.1 Oreo


The Nexus 4 was one of the all-time favorites from anyone who loved to modify their phone. In this video, Rawad looks at the Nexus 4 to see how it has held up over the years.

The development community has kept this phone up to date with Oreo ROMs bringing the latest Android features to the phone. You can find plenty of active development projects for the Nexus 4 in the XDA forums.

With the phone being nearly 6 years old now, it takes you back to a time when wireless charging was a new standard, design was something people cared about, and the best phone on the market could be yours for $299. In late 2013 the price was dropped to $199 which seems like a deal we will probably never see again in the Android world.


If you still own a Nexus 4, lets us know how it’s doing and what ROM you’re running.
