When I look at LG Nexus 4 E960 it seems a little different than all the other Android devices because of its vivid features. But if you are looking to add some more features to it then you can do that by custom ROMs and stop waiting for the official update. From my experience you must give a try to codefireX ROM developed by a XDA Developers member synergye for your Nexus 4.
Not to mention this ROM is based on AOSP and has got more features than ever but you have to bear few bugs as it is still in developmental stage.
