[Q] Just looking for some advice on a cracked screen...
So, my 32GB 2012 Nexus 7 fell from my desk today. About a 3 foot fall and now has a small set of cracks in the bottom right corner of the screen. I actually thought the digitizer was dead as well because it would not respond, but I rebooted the device and it still responds. I guess I "lucked out" with the position of the crack as well since it is on the bezel and does not interfere with anything on the screen besides the recents button on the nav bar.
Still, I am kind of meticulous when it comes to keeping my devices in tip top shape. Seeing that crack, even though it doesn't interfere with anything I view, kind of makes me either want to fix the device or get a new one. At the same time, I am thinking the former may not even be worth it. On eBay and Amazon, the cheapest I've seen a Digitizer/LCD combo was $99.99 + shipping.
The point of this post is just to gain some others opinions if they were in my situation. Would you buy a LCD/Digitizer to fix the device? Would you just use the device as is, ignoring the small crack in the bottom right corner? Would you say screw it and use it an excuse to get the 2013 Nexus 7? Or is there some other option that I'm not thinking of?
Also, I figured I'd ask here to see if anyone either has a broken Nexus with a good LCD/Digitizer that they'd like to sell or know where to get one cheaper than $100.
