I am planning to buy a Nexus 4 from US and want to use it in India. Should I expect any issues with this? Is that phone compatible with all carriers in India? Are there any power related problems?


Yes the phone is compatible with all Indian carriers. I personally use it on Vodafone.
Side note: Why are you buying it from the US when it's available here? The $200 model is sold out you know.

  • Maybe because it's cheaper in the US? – Ruben Roy Sep 10 '13 at 12:45
  • Because here nexus 4 is more costlier than brought from US. Here price: 26000 US: 249$= approx 16000 – Vikrant Sep 16 '13 at 7:05

There was an India-specific version released with a different Android build, including a different Radio. (Build JDQ39E).

I don't believe there are any hardware differences, and I have personally never been to India. If it doesn't work when you get it home, you may need to flash the Indian version's radio image with Fastboot.

Link for the radio (and many other radios).

  • Can you please tell me that what is that radio image? And how come it affect over here(in india)? – Vikrant Sep 16 '13 at 7:09
  • I already specified the build number with the radio and gave a link. I don't know anything else about it, sorry. – dotVezz Sep 17 '13 at 13:12
