Google Nexus 4 - worth £400?

So I've waited for the Google Nexus 4 to come back in stock, but it doesn't appear to be happening! Do you guys think the phone is worth £400 from O2? Would I have to pay to have it unlocked on top of that? Or should I just get something else entirely?!

I'd feel a tad stupid to buy it at that price, but if it ticks all boxes?

Yeah probably would have to pay to unlock it, if not locked into a contract there's some marginally better deals that way.
Isn't it cheaper in cpw on p&go than o2 stores. (v slightly)

It's a great phone but defo not worth the price away from google play store...£288 is a great price but £400 is ridiculous and never worth the cash.

Just a heads up.

No, it's not worth £400. The only things about it that are particularly good are the SoC and the fact it'll get updates quickly. The rest of the phone (display, camera, battery life, build etc) is nothing special.

Overall, the S3 is probably the better device for most people, and it's the one I'd buy if I had the choice of the two. It's a more balanced device which is better at the things most people use a phone for.

I work for O2 customer services ( pay monthly contract )and unlocking is free. Don't know about pay and go as they're a different department.....think its still free with them but not sure.....
CPW and P4U are cheaper than O2 usually.....

O2 PAYG unlock is £15...I know from (unfortunate) personal experience.

They're all unlocked anyway. I bought mine from o2, to use on T-Mobile, but only because they were giving away a free LG TV at the time.
The phone is definitely up there with other £400 phones, but given the Google price I would hold out if you can.

Interesting - I thought so....

Nexus 4s are unlocked. I've checked in EE store.
I would recommend Galaxy S3 for £350 from Amazon.de - it's better phone, cheaper and you get Amazon warranty.

It's always cheaper online, unless it's an iPhone.

It was indeed an iPhone, a 3G if I remember correctly.
