Still waiting on your Nexus 4 to arrive? Call it a tease, or simply cruel and unusual punishment, but LG uploaded their first Nexus 4 video to their YouTube channel today, knowing damn well you can’t go into the Google Play store and buy one. Okay, to be fair, it’s possible they have their factories working overtime to churn out more handsets, but the timing of the ads still seems a bit off (especially when the official launch was weeks ago).

LG’s 2-minute ad spot may have flew under the radar, uploaded a day before Google’s own first Nexus 4 vid, but possibly only going public yesterday. In any case, the vid shows off all the coolest features of LG/Google Nexus 4 — Google Now, IPS display, wireless mirroring — and although informative, it seemed to lack the emotion typically conveyed in Google’s Nexus commercials. Take a look.

So, what you did guys think? Effective? Or do you prefer Google’s method of tugging on consumers’ heart strings for a more lasting impression? Quick poll: Who did it better?
