How to Move/Transfer Blu-ray/DVD/HD Movies to Google/LG Nexus 4

After seeing the wild success of the Galaxy Nexus, which despite its poor camera and battery life sold by the dozen, Google has decided to create a much better package this time around and has turned to LG for the task. The Nexus 4 looks remarkably similar to the Galaxy Nexus and perhaps that was a deliberate design choice made by Google rather than LG.

The Google Nexus 4 made by LG is considered as one of the most powerful handsets currently in the market. It houses a huge 4.7 inch IPS + LCD display with a 1280 x 768 resolution, which crams in an impressive 320 pixels per inch. The result is a super-sharp and vibrant display with excellent viewing angles, which is very good for viewing text, images, video and pretty much anything. Text is crisp and easy to read, high resolution images are vibrant and rich with detail, and high definition video content looks incredible. Have you ever thought of moving your Blu-ray movies, DVD movies and HD movies onto the Nexus 4 for viewing whenever and wherever? In this article, we show you the easiest method to convert and transfer your different movie files to Google Nexus for playback.
