Today, LG posted up a 2 minute spot for the Nexus 4, showing off some of its killer hardware and software features. Naturally, it gives us a look at Photo Sphere, that gorgeous HD IPS+ display, Google Maps, and a whole lot more. Surprisingly enough, when they are showing off that shiny backside, their’s doesn’t have a crack down it though. Weird.
Now, if this commercial has you sold and you need to buy this phone, good luck! The device is still marked as “Sold Out” on Google Play for both size options.

Down below, I go over the basic enchantments that Google has done with the app’s UI and then after that I take Photo Sphere on a test drive. Check it out. (more…)

One of the most exciting features that Google just announced for Android 4.2 has got to be Photo Sphere. This is Google showing that it is already moving far beyond simple panoramic shots. In fact, Photo Sphere lets you do more than sweep from side to side – it lets you take photos in all directions, seamlessly merging them into one big beautiful “sphere.” This video is the perfect demonstration of it.
