Hi

I replaced the broken screen on my Nexus 5, but now there is a small hole on the front of the screen where the front facing camera is. Water could easily get into it and cause some damage. I must've missed a part when putting it back together.

What can I do to plug this hole while still being able to use the camera? What specific part do I need?

Thanks, Chris

A screen protector would probably cover it.

"A screen protector would probably cover it." Yes, but at some point I'm probably going to sell the phone.

Is the cover over the camera part of the screen or part of the camera or innards of the phone?
