Default [Q] I Broke my screen :(

Hi

I broke my phone, my Nexus 5 fell directly on the screen

I have no intention to replace the Nexus itself only screen.
I have a problem that I just can not find anywhere a true original screen of LG and LG in the country I live in is not selling white Nexus phone screens, just black ones.

So I looked on eBay and found someone who claims to be selling original screens:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/OEM-Google-N...:X:RTQ:US:1123

I bought it and I got the screen this week, and unfortunately it is also not original.

I was wondering if anyone has experience with seller on EBAY who sells original screens for white Nexus with frame and everything.

Thank you!

if I were you, I would send it to LG and let them put on the black one... You get 3 months warranty on the same as well!

There's always a good chance that the display you buy online turning out to be a fake.

Why base what you think about a ROM on a quadrant score? Is it smooth for you? Is it as quick or quicker than other ROMS? THAT'S what you should base an impression of a ROM from. Its ALWAYS about the UX. Who really cares about a quadrant score? Do you plan on racing other Nexus phones on weekends or something? - CrackerTeg

They are the same screens, you just take the white ear piece from your old screen, and put it on the new one.

You get what you pay for. Keep that in mind.

And personally, I'd rather have professionals install it than do it myself, it not work out and be out a phone and the money I paid for the cheaper screen.

Just my 2 cents. 👍

I live in a country that doesn't have any insurance for Nexus 5. I Really want to pay as much as it takes for an ORIGINAL SCREEN not cheap one and PROFESSIONAL to repair it but i just have to do the best with what i have in option. so don't judge just help if you can and if you cant please don't comment.
thank you
