[PLUG] Mobile phone repair shops for a cracked glass (Nexus 6)


Unfortunately, I dropped my Nexus 6 recently and broke the front glass. However, the digitizer (for touch input) and the LCD still work. So I wish to ask the list about recommendation for a good local repair shop.

Background: Motorola provides fix for out-of-warranty physical damage, with a flat fee of $175. Considering that the front glass replacement is available at arount $10, and a reasonable labor/service fee of around $50, this charge is quite high. (The display assembly, that is, glass+digitizer+lcd, seems to cost ~$200, so this charge is somehow reasonable for more severe damage cases.)

A low cost option would be just buying a front glass, separating the old one from the digitizer, and attaching the new one to it. The separating step is the most risky one, and requires some tools (heat gun and/or hot water bag).

Best regards,
