Your statement is quite broad and does not apply to everyone. Every need is different but for me the Z10 delivered all the functionality I need and want in my phone for personal and work purposes.
I will say that I have never used the Nexus 4 but I do wonder about claims that it is better than the GS3, Z10 and iP5 given the N4's pricing. How is it able to sell at such a low price if it has all the high end internals and functions better than the higher priced competitors? There is a saying that you get what you pay for and is the N4 really an exception to that phrase?

People said legacy BB was the best for communications, except of course VOIP and cross platform apps like Viber and Skype.
Now the Z10 is the top end for communications and emails?
It has even less cross platform communications apps than legacy BB.
The email client is the worst of any current OS, making simple tasks like copying sender's emails, organising emails, searching emails longer than 30 days etc, an absolute chore.
How are people saying this is a good communication, professional, dependable device in it's current form?
I really don't get it.

As much as I like to believe, the best phone is the phone which suits your needs, I'm not sure that this is what drives people to their choice of phone or anything else for that matter. People are impressionable and those perceptions sway them one way or the other. There are many factors at work that ultimately culminates into their decision. You like stripped toothpaste....why..because it better suits your needs over regular toothpaste, or are you just a fancy boy who likes things a little twisted. Remember this is just my opinion and I prefer baking soda..but hey... who really knows why.

The only reason I got a Nexus 4 in the first place was that I was tired of waiting for updates (either to the software or to address security issues) with my S2. I figured that if I was going to have an Android phone as a back up phone, it may as well be stock. I can say that while it may be a quad core, it doesn't run that much better than the dual core S2 which was what? 1.2 or 1.5 GHz?
There are a lot of things to like about the Nexus 4 but a lot of issues as well (battery being the one affecting me right now) and there are still issues with Android on the whole (though they have gotten a lot better since Gingerbread).
I think you are probably getting what you paid for so, no, there isn't an exception to the rule in the case of the N4 in my opinion.
