It does not fit with the stock Google bumper however. Also new HDMI RedMere cables do not work with it.
I'm not sure what the issue is, software, or the slimport, but on the Nexus 4 when you navigate to a new screen the hdmi display flickers black, then back on. It's fine when you're actually watching something but it can get kind of annoying.
Update: I took sandpaper to the edges of the slimport adapter and it fits with the stock bumper on no problems. Just a tip if you want to go that route.
Cons: It charges a lot slower than when you are plugged directly into the wall. This means that, while being plugged in will extend the amount of time you can use it, you will eventually run out of battery. If you start with a low battery, you will not be able to make it through a movie, even with it charging.
The connector does what it's supposed to do. I wish there was a way to turn off the phone display when playing a movie.
It pairs well with the newer slim HDMI cords. I picked one up from Monoprice but I'm sure amazon has them.
I can't wait to use it when I travel next or when my family visits. It will be a lifesaver I'm sure.
****UPDATE: This worked for a very short time with a slim monoprice redmare hdmi cable but then it stopped working altogether and my nexus 4 would randomly reboot (I'm running stock, fyi). I went back to an older thick style hdmi cable and it worked just fine. I'm pretty bummed because that cable matched so perfectly to this adaptor.
A quick search online revealed this to be a common problem. I theorize the adaptors do work but they struggle with the newest of HMDI standards/cables. That being said, I had to go out of my way to find a slim hdmi cable, most I would encounter in a hotel room or family function would be the older style cables. I hope this helps. I would have to rate this 2 stars now due to the compatibility issues with different cables.
I am using it as an adapter for my Pioneer AppRadio2 car head unit. The adapter sits in my center console and is connected when I drive my car. So I'd guess maybe 10 times a week is it connected and then disconnected. Because of a short drive to work, it gets used maybe 30 minutes a day. The last one I had lasted thorough 4 weeks of use. No idea what could be causing my apparent rapid failure with these devices. Company offers no direct consumer support, so it's swap-n-pray with any issues you have.
There is only one other slimport adapter available on Amazon and i'll be trying that one if this fails again.
UPDATE 11/6 - I finally got a good one. It's been almost 8 months since my last failure. Moved the review to a 3 star.
UPDATE 2/26/14 - It started acting up again a few months ago. If I unplugged/replugged it enough times, it would start working. Today it just won't stay working. Screen goes from fine to flickering, back and forth.
it was simple to hook up, after a techie family member advised me on the HDMI cable to buy. I bought a 25 foot HDMI cable (BlueRigger High Speed HDMI cable with Ethernet, Supports 3D and Audio Return), connected one end to the HDMI port on my TV and the other to the SlimPort, then connected the phone charger (it does have a hard time keeping up on a battery hog like the Nexus 4 but it hasn't been a major issue). I then changed the input selection on my TV to HDMI 2, and presto! my phone screen appeared in large living color on my flat screen!
The one thing that remains to be seen is longevity: I've used it several times over the past month without any problems at all. Hopefully it will go the distance.
The price of this device fluctuates; I bought it for 29.95.
Overall a good purchase for the Nexus 4 or any other smartphone requiring this protocol.
Don't know if it's a shortcoming of the SlimPort or the Nexus 7 1920x1200 resolution but there is an unavoidable black border on 2 or 4 sides that I can't seem to get rid of. This means that it is not pixel by pixel sharp but still looks really good once you get used to the black border. For the money, I can't complain and am quite pleased with the purchase.
