One data point.
I have had a Nexus 4 for about 18 months. I've had no problems with it so I
can recommend it as a solid performer. Runs KitKat official. The screen is
not as sharp as newer models.
I've used mine in AU (Optus) and the Western USA (AT&T) on 3G networks with
no issues. Saved my arse many times driving with maps navigation voice
mode. I expect it will work in Europe too as it supports 900 and 1800 MHz
I get photos and music in/out using gmtp (under Ubuntu 12.04); while Ubuntu
14.04 accesses the phone like a mass storage device under GNOME. Overall
pretty good desktop Linux compatibility from what I've tried to do.
YOU WILL NEED A GOOGLE ACCOUNT to make use of many features. After all it
is a Google phone.

Kogan is selling refurbished Nexus 4's for $169 each, this is really a
deal. The Nexus 6 is too expensive at ~$900 IMHO and the Nexus 5 still
dropped in price.
