anyone know an inexpensive way to get my galaxy note edge screens replaced? no damage to the digister or lcd, just a cracked glass jobbie.

Smashed my Nexus 5 to smithereens but may just get another similar spec phone rather than pay out for a repair. Looking at a Moto G4 but it's not that much better than a 3 year old Nexus really, in fact it has a slower processor. Also doesn't have NFC.

They've suspended sales for a bit: http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2016/8/3/12368514/oneplus-3-sales-suspended-europe-hong-one-month

In terms of getting the latest, greatest and most secure version of Android, the Nexus line is still the best IMO, although the 5X and 6P are likely to be replaced by Xmas.

UK isn't in that list as far as I can see? Got my ancient iphone 5 to replace and tempted by it but new Nexus are due to be out late Sept/Oct so might hold off and see what they come up with.

Can't work out if Google are bringing out two new Nexus, or this new one that is 100 percent made by Google called the G. Or maybe all three.

May be old news, but if people want contract info on Note 7, Carphone Warehouse have quoted me on the phone and in-store.

Probably just the two, the "Google phone" is a vague rumor that keeps popping up every now and then.

Just dropped my z3 compact and cracked the screen across the top, it doesn't look too bad and I could live with it but the touch screen isn't working across the top part, is it an easy / cheap fix, or am I better off getting a new phone? I fancy something bigger but was considering going back to Apple when the 7 comes out.

Battery & front facing camera is shit but otherwise a very good phone.
