    Please help. Im from Bangalore. My Nexus 5 is out of Warranty and I have a Power Button hardware failure. Now the Service center says that I will need to change the entire motherboard as the power button cannot be replaced. Please help and suggest.

    I know of nothing else you can do if the power button is broken.

    Hi guys. Had any of you started using qi / wireless charging before encountering the faulty motherboard?

    My Nexus 5 has suddenly stopped working. The motherboard needs to be replaced, but it is beyond economical repair. I had recently started the use qi charging. Do you think there any way that qi / wireless charging may have caused a fault on the motherboard, or is this a coincidence?

    So far, the advice has been that it is indeed a coincidence. Google have replaced the phone, but I'm nervous about using qi charging (my favourite feature).

    I've read some articles in the past that suggest wireless charging is bad for your phone
