I dropped it, sides got scratched . The scratches isn't on the back cover or the display. It's on the very sides (between the screen and the back) I don't know what that part is called, it's a glossy black which is rounded on the screen, may as well be a part of the screen.(I hope not)

I can I think afford 30-40$ max to get his tablet fixed, not more than that unfortunately. He bought it for 390$(Indian price).

Please Please, help a fellow member out I was about to root this thing for him so he can have some goodies but sooo unfortunate of this event. It's 12AM right now and I will be meeting him at 11AM tomorrow and I really don't want him to get much worried(not that he already is) and he is my best friend so that can ruin our friendship aswell



Not sure how you're going to find that particular part for it, much less find it for 40 bucks or less, maybe buy him a fosman TPU case to cover up the markings.

Might be helpful if you posted a pic.

You can't repair the screen like that.
Full replacement or none at all.

Either he forgives you which is going to be hard, under the circumstances you mentioned or you sell your Nexus 5 and buy him a new Nexus.
Then, take his old Nexus, sell it and buy another phone for yourself.

Wow! Definitely sucks for both of you! Sometimes doing a favor for a friend will turn around and bite you on the ass! I'm not going to comment about if you end up having to sell your N5 to make it right and your parents have a problem with it. I think you know that you have to make it right, even if it means using a dumb phone for a while. Talk to your friend, see what he wants you to do, suck it up!

Awesome! I feel for you! I've rooted a lot of devices for friends and family but I've been lucky so far!

You have to use your best judgement! I personally don't want to be buying anyone a new device unless maybe she is damn good looking and willing to show some gratitude! Otherwise....
