Many people are looking to buy the Nexus 4. I just ordered one and thus sharing my experience regarding Nexus 4 import and hoping to clear some of the confusion about the recent rise in customs duty.

To start with, the total cost of getting a Nexus 4 (16GB) in your hand in India is Rs. 23726 (and this is for my specific situation which may vary)

The breakdown:

Nexus 4 (16GB) + shipping + tax = Rs.21500 (if shipped to Oregan then the cost is only Rs. 20020
Shipping to India + customs = Rs.2364 (PPO Box) (Shipping, Handling & Taxes: 618 + Duty & Clearance Fees: Rs. 1,746)


My order was placed on 3rd March and shipped on 6th March by Google. I used PPO box to ship it to Bangalore.

PPO Box is free to use. Just register for free ppobox.com (please note this is not necessarily the only or the best option, this is merely one of the options I chose for no apparent advantage)

@Sarath Congrats on your purchase buddy!! Please post some pics or a mini-review if possible :D The only reason I was wary of this method is warranty.... on the rare possibility of getting a defective piece :(

Same here I'm worried a lot about warranty.

@Sarath If sth goes wrong what are we supposed to do? Courier it back to US and get it serviced? What will be the Cost? BTW, Congo for ur purchase :) Anticipating a review with photos.

Thanks guys but this phone is not for me so the pics will have to wait. I just though I would share my experience with you all.

I got tempted and opened it up :p

I can give the excuse that I had to update it :D

Overall a pretty good phone for 23.5k. Actually an awesomely spectacular phone for that amount of money.

Sarath, what billing address did you use when buying from play store? Don't they actually check if its the same as your credit cards address?
