Broke the screen on my Nexus 4, This included the digitizer. Quoted £80.00 to repair so bought the moto G for £100. Really glad I did. The motorola seems better in every way. Feels better, sounds better, Only drawback for me is the slimport adapter (hdmi) is not supported.
This VS makes me laugh enough!
