No issue with power button, but I have had 5ghz wifi compatibility disappear randomly. Reboot required. If it becomes common I may return it, but I can't replicate the problem so could be a challenge.

Has anyone invested in a Qi Wireless charger that goes well with this phone? What is your verdict?
I am looking for something that is convenient and won't cost me an arm and a leg please?

GSM and WCDMA are not the same, but the N4 is compatible with all NZ networks

Not sure if I'm willing to try that but at that price it seems like a nice deal! Free worldwide shipping too. Hmm.

If anyone is after a cheap "decentish" case, I got one of these off DX:
https://dx.com/p/s-style-protective-tpu-back-case-for-lg-nexus-4-e960-translucent-white-173143

It makes it _slightly_ bulkier, but i'm no longer afraid to put it down on a pub table or anywhere else. It's a bit less "slidey" on tables now too. I'm not sure how much it'll protect from a drop from chest height onto concrete, though it feels like it'll be a lot better than having it naked.

Does anyone know if the N4 is still in stock at The Warehouse? Over the last few weeks I've experienced a drop in cellular signal and I'd like to get mine replaced. Signal is quite a bit lower than other phones in the same area, and it's draining battery life quite a bit (drops 30% just sitting asleep by my bed).

Really? But the software hasn't changed since I got the phone... I don't remember seeing any issues with signal previously, and I think I would have noticed only getting 1 bar in my bedroom, occasionally with complete dropouts.

Are the dropouts affecting the unit that badly? I'm not noticing any major issues in using the phone, nor any major battery concerns. Cell Standby is 6% across 20 hours.
