Hi guys,

I managed it to break to glass of my camera on my Nexus 5.
The camera still works, it just looks like I'm taking pictures in a fog.
So all I need to replace would be the covering glass.
Can you point me somewhere or give me hints?
How complicated is such an repair, can I do it on my own?
Will I be able to get the replacement?

You wouldn't get warranty coverage and so you'll have to pay for the replacement glass, as well as the repair cost. Its safer if you just hand it over to LG for repairs, because you wouldn't want to get any dust under the glass when you replace it yourself (if that was even possible). I'm pretty sure they'll be able to get a replacement. Check your phone documentation for the nearest service center that should get you started.

There is a replacement part that you can buy yourself for around $35 I think, just search for the other similar threads for the link.

Can I ask how it happened?

Good luck

I knew this day would happen

Try contact LG they may do it for you free or for a low price.

Thanks for the link, do you think it is safe to do it on my own? (Doesn't look to hard to do tbh)..

I can't tell you how it happened. I looked at my phone and the glass was broken. I didn't had my keys in my pocket or something

Check out the Nexus 5 teardown guide on ifixit.com and see if its something you're comfortable with doing. As long as you're handy, have the tools to get the job done, extremely patient and know how to follow directions then I'd say go for it.
