Advanced Android Keyboard

If you have used Swype, then you would realize that its an incredible app for the people who text. But the fact that its a paid app, does hurt. With this smartphone, you have all the features of Swype inbuilt. Hence, lesser typos and better speed.

And in order to set that up, navigate as Settings > Language and Input > Android Keyboard  and mark a check across the option, Gesture Typing and Next word suggestions.

Capture A Screenshot

This is one of those features which are being offered by few of the older Android OS too. And in order to take a screenshot of your display, all you need to do is to press the Power button and Volume Down button together and its done.

Android Beam

Yes, this is another CHECK OUT feature of Nexus 4. If you wish to share things between other smartphones with NFC packing like Nexus S, then you can simply bump the two devices and start sharing things like display, files and much more.

Instant Notifications And Settings

So far, we have been using the single finger swipe gesture to bring the notifications onto the display. And in addition to that, with Jelly Bean, you can use the double finger swipe down gesture to pull out the settings menu which would let you control brightness, Bluetooth, WiFi and much more.

Photo Sphere

This is something that no body had expected to be introduced to the mobile world this soon. We have seen panoramic pictures being taken, but this SPHERE is something really advanced. This is a Jelly Bean feature which would let you take a complete 360 degree photograph. To capture a Sphere, all you need to do is launch Camera app, tap on the Globe like icon on the top and follow the steps to get your Sphere like picture clicked.

Well, this is only the  first installment of the Nexus 4 tips, tricks and features. We would be back with more interesting things. Stay tuned!
