It's the Diztronic Matte Black TPU Case. And it was just an ordinary 2 feet drop on to tile floor. I've dropped plenty of my past phones on to tile before and nothing happened, but this time I guess it hit at a bad angle or something.

Or do it yourself. You can buy the LCD and glass assembly for 120-150. Easily replaced yourself. So 146 for the whole job done professionally?

That is good. Check how much a super amoled costs

PS almost everything on the n5 is easily replaced and cheap. The charger port. The headphone jack. Both speakers. The camera. Cheap too. It takes about 5-10 min to replace anything.

The digitizer still works I believe because my phone is still fully functional. I always thought that the assembly had three parts - the glass, the LCD, and the digitizer. Since the whole assembly is fused though it'll cost like $150 alone for the part. I wish it wasn't fused though so I could just repair the broken glass myself for like $30

Wow that sucks, I have the same case and dropped mine from about 4 feet on to a tile floor as well. It landed on the bottom bumper and apparently absorbed the fall because there was not even a scratch on the phone or case. Either I got really lucky or you were very unlucky.

Same here..dropped at least a dozen times, concrete/blacktop/wood floor/carpet...no breakage nor sign of drops.

Its only two parts. Digitizer is the glass. Than LCD. Phones like the iPhone and some HTC phones and a number lg phones still have easy separation between the two. You can replace the glass. But it may damage the LCD because its fused. I could do it but the digitizer is currently hard to find unless you go to a store with factory access. 150 has profit built in. A shop owner could get that for maybe 100 bucks. Lg probably pays 50 to make it. 146 is a steal but ask if you can keep the damaged part. The extra LCD could come in handy one day. Glass will become more readily available once the device becomes less popular. I bet you can find the part cheaper than 150 now.
