Exclamation So disappointed in my (ex) Nexus 5

Quite literally the first time I have dropped my Nexus 5...

About a 2.5-3 foot drop (my bed) straight onto a carpeted floor, not even a particularly thin carpet. The outcome says it all in the uploaded picture.

The phone itself works however the screen is completely useless. Due to my screen lock I am not able to access my SD card to recover any of my photos as I can't enter my pattern.

I'm calling fake. The breakage pattern suggests a lot more went on. Typing from my nexus that survived a fall at 6ft on to concrete with only a ringke slim.


good day.
$3 charging dock for the galaxy nexus. SEE HERE.

I'm not bothered about convincing anyone who thinks I'm lying that it dropped onto carpet.

All the forensics experts here can feel free to be sceptical or just trust the fact I would gain nothing by lying on this thread and wouldn't bother.

Can't do this as the screen doesn't show anything at all or respond to any touches.

You don't need the screen, just the power buttons and volume rocker to get into fastboot.

DONATE TO ME
Given the damage pattern its obvious it hit something with corners or protrusions.

it was struck with something about ⅔ the way up on the right side. or, it could have fallen very hard onto something that impacted the screen at that point.
