Anyone ever replaced the screen on a Nexus 5 themselves? I've a crack the whole way across mine, screen still works fine but its annoying me already. Is it a simple enough job to do?

Ffffuuuu etc.

Amazing deal though, how's it run, heard some complaints that the Samsung is a bit laggy even though they were supposed to have streamlined the whole Touchwiz thing?

It's a great phone from what I have seen so far, not noticed any lag. The camera is excellent, the design is stunning, my only slight issue would be how much the camera protrudes from the back of the phone but that will disappear when I put a case on it.

Anyone got advice on buying an S6/G4 outright? Always been on contract but leaving the country (not the US, cunts) for a bit so don't want to be locked in, don't have the slightest clue where to look for a good deal etc.

My phone has gone nuts, when I get a call it rings but there is no option to answer the call, I have to wait until it's stopped ringing then go into missed calls to find out who was calling! Motorola Moto G might just fuck it off and go back to iphone

I'm thinking about buying the 3rd generation Moto G but I'm concerned about the 1GB of ram. Does anybody here have experience with the Moto G?

Any invites about for the one plus 2?

Since I updated my z3 last week the battery life is shit, and phone single is poor! Also when I try to put it in stamina mode as soon as I come off the stamina page it turns off again, I had the stamina on all the time before!
on the plus side it seems to of fixed the crazy typing problem I was having on here.
any ideas how to fix it?

I have the Moto G 2nd gen. Speed and performance wise its fine. Only downside is the relatively small internal storage means you have to pick and choose your apps

It really depends on what your going to do with the phone. 1GB is very limiting if your are running a bunch of apps in the background and want switch back and forth between them.

Just has a look and it says the G has 2GB of ram.

Other phones to consider-

Aye, but a lot of apps can't be moved to the SD card.

Its not been a huge problem for me, but if you are the kind of person who likes to have a lot, it might be problematic

I'm finding my 2nd gen Moto a little sluggish with the new update, still does everything I want though. The odd crash when browsing/gmail/texting and using the iPlayer app which I guess is quite intensive.
