Broke my GS4 screen, couldn't CWM, switch to Nexus 5?
So a couple months back I pulled my Galaxy S4 (i337) out of my pocket to find a spider-crack smash on the right side of the home button. I've used the phone since they with the cracks going all the way up the screen. I bought the replacement screen, tools, and 2mm tape to repair it myself an I end up cracking the digitizer (ugh...).
My phone has an insurance plan through AT&T with a $200 deductible. But I've been a little intrigued by the Nexus 5 as of late. Backing up a bit I spent the last week getting my GS4 rooted and I've been unsuccessful installing Clockworkmod to do a proper backup and I've been wanting to install ROMs to try and get rid of the Samsung/ATT bloatware but I haven't had any luck (phone build is MK2).
Anyway, my question I wanted to ask people is should I pay $200 and get the phone replaced and wait for a suitable ROM to be available down the road or is it worth paying $349+tax to get a 16MB Nexus 5?
My main concerns about the N5 have been battery life, no external storage, and poor camera compared to the GS4, and the on-screen buttons taking up screen real estate. Thoughts? Suggestions?
