Recently cracked my nexus 5 screen and I'm thinking about sending it to US lg (from here in Canada) for screen repair. Has anyone been in a similar situation and what's the best way to handle this?

Iv seen a few threads on this. Lg should charge about $150 USD the LCD and glass are fuzed together so you will need to replace the entire front panel. The part costs 100-150. If you are lucky you'll find it for 100 bucks. Its very easy to replace it yourself. But to have it replaced for $150 by the manufacturer is a no brainer for now. That is for the next for months. The cost of this part will go down for sure. I predict around 80-100 by may.

I had the screen on my Nexus 4 repaired through LG. It cost me $140 and they just sent me a new device. Took about a week from the time I sent it till I got my new one.

I have been waiting for the Nexus 7 screen+digitizer cost to go down for over 6-7 months now - no luck yet. I'm not sure the Nexus 5 will be any different. If it does, great, but I wouldn't hold my breath for that.
