    Unhappy Broken back glass on Nexus 4

    Hi. New to the forum. I woke up this morning to find my nexus 4 had cracked / broken around the camera lens.

    Is there anyone selling replacements yet? Any info or links anyone can give me would be much appreciated.

    Curious, did you have a case on it, bumper, or nothing?

    The back of the Nexus 4 is delicate like a hymen.

    Actually, my experience has been the opposite. I have dropped mine about 4 times so far...the front screen has shattered once. The back is still intact.

    I've dropped mine hard a couple times. Not a scratch so far... I carry it naked too.

    I have a Nexus 4, an iPhone 5, and a Lumia 520, and I like them all. Is something wrong with me? (I really should edit my signature sometime. I have only 1 of these 3 phones anymore, and even that one is mostly unused because it's been superseded by its big brother!)

    See this thread that was posted in this Nexus 4 forum awhile back. One of the moderators mentions in it that you can buy a replacement back on eBay and also advises on making sure you get one that includes the wireless charger coil. I think there is a youtube video showing how to remove the back yourself.

    So LG will replace the back if it gets broken?
