I dropped my phone face down on a partially wet floor, like a shower room floor. The drop was not that high and i picked it up and wiped it as soon as possible, now some parts of the screen don't respond. And recently, the screen was detecting different touches, as my pattern passcode was going crazy. What might be causing this problem? The drop or the maybe water getting into the phone? Would a screen replacement fix this? Thanks =( please help

A high rated ebay seller would be good. and also nexus 4 is kinda water resistent: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkqHSnr7OzY

Anyway i would say yes a screen replacement will fix it.

The nexus 4 is NOT "kinda water resistant". I made the "mistake" of putting it in my pocket on a hot day bike ride, and my own sweat managed to seep into the ringke case and then somewhere near the goddamn digitizer, making me a victim of the infamous dead zone on the bottom of the screen. I'm so pissed off at google and lg that my next phone is going to be waterproof, even if that means giving up on the master race.

Your looking for waterproof and not water resistant.

My point is that a phone I bought for almost 300 f***in euros should not be rendered useless by SWEAT. It was never dropped, never got into contact with water, and a summer bike ride was enough to kill it.
