As we head into the New Year, Google’s latest Nexus smartphone, the Nexus 4, remains sold out completely through the Google Play Store with no return in sight. Those who still wish to buy it might be waiting a few weeks before it comes back into stock but that doesn’t mean that you’ll need to check the Play Store every day. Instead, there are three much easier methods of checking for Nexus 4 stock on the Google Play Store.
Since the November, the Nexus 4 has been extremely scarce. The 8GB sold out almost immediately after the device went on sale for a second time through Google’s Play Store and a few weeks after that, the 16GB Nexus 4 displayed the same bold sold out symbol which prohibits customers from ordering the device. The Nexus 4′s bumper case remains sold out as well.
Google has not yet said when the Nexus 4 might be relieved of its supply issues, leaving prospective buyers wondering when they might be able to get their hands on LG’s first Nexus smartphone.
For those who might be looking to order, checking the Google Play Store for availability might have already become a daily ritual. Personally, I used check it every day in the hopes that Google would finally be offering it again because I have no interest in paying exorbitant amounts of money for the Nexus 4 through site’s like Craigslist or eBay. One of the beautiful parts about the Nexus 4, after all, is its price tag.
Fortunately, I decided to cut that daily routine out and move on to greener pastures. What I mean is that there are easier ways to ensure that you’ll be ready to buy a Nexus 4 once the device comes back into stock.
Here now, we show you how to check for Nexus 4 stock through the Google Play Store not only in the U.S., but in other countries as well.
