    Default Screen cracked to pieces while in my pocket?

    Well my relationship with my nexus 5 was short lived. Pulled it out of my pocket last evening to find the screen cracked and shattered in one corner. There was nothing else in my pocket that could have done this. This phone was never dropped or anything and was in a speigen hybrid case. Wonderful! Guess I'm out $400.00

    A friend of mine had the same issue with the Galaxy S4 Mini. No clue how/why it happens...
    Is it one single crack, or is it cracked on multiple places?

    Usually this is the result of leaning into something hard - against the stove while cooking or the washing machine while doing laundry, etc.

    When the phone is in your pocket do you face the glass toward your leg or outwards?

    Lg will replace the screen. I think it's 100-175 bucks but it's cheaper than buying another one.

    There are cracks that go from bottom to top, all over. I put in a claim with my discover card for the purchase protection thing. Hope that works. I really dont have enough money for another phone right now.

    Buy a clip on leather case or a case with a clip on holster. I never put my phone in my pocket. Something caused this because they don't crak by themselves!
