Google Nexus 4 mobile phone

Looking for a new smartphone without a contract? Google has just cut the price of its 16GB Nexus 4 handset on its Google Play store to £199, making it £80 lower than the standard retail price of £279.

The phone comes unlocked and can be used on any network.

The Nexus 4 is the latest smartphone from Google, which features an 8 megapixel camera, a crisp display and excellent battery life, and it runs on the latest version of the Android operating system. 

Just beware that you might want to act quickly as this handset has already sold out in the US.
