    What sort of price am I looking at to either

    One

    Get a faulty S3 handset and a replacement screen & digitizer unit

    Two

    Get a faulty S4 handset and a replacement screen & digitizer unit

    Also what tools would I need etc and are there any good guides

    Somewhere in the region of £444.99? If you did that, you would be between £5.00 to £95.00 worse off compared to buying a brand new or refurb S4.

    S4 w/ "cracked screen" - £289.99

    Replacement Digitizer / LCD - £155.00

    Where from as looking at the min can only find handsets and replacement parts that cost more together than just buying a refurb or new as @Arthur has already said

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I don't store movies on my phone and photos taken with the camera get uploaded automatically to Dropbox so no issues deleting them if I take too many!

    However, only 5GB of free space on the 8GB model is still rather small.

    The FCC have confirmed some of the specs of the Nexus 5.

    • Snapdragon 800 SoC
    • Android 4.4 "Kit Kat" (a.k.a Key Lime Pie)
    • 802.11 ac WiFi
    • Bluetooth 4.0
    • LTE
    • Wireless Charging (Qi)
    • 2,300 mAh Non-Removable Battery
    • WxH: 68.2 x 131.9 x ??? mm (the Nexus 4 is 68.7 x 133.9 x 9.1 mm)

    It's just as well the Nexus 5 is physically smaller than the Nexus 4, while still having a larger screen then.

    Don't think I could go to an android then as I need at least 32gb if not more onboard storage as I have a lot of music and some videos that I prefer to be on the device rather then in the cloud as I don't always get signal and now with works new wireless which is only for work devices I can't connect to a wifi network at work.

    The Galaxy Note 3 might be a good smartphone to get in that case. There's a 64GB model and with a 64GB microSD card that would give you 128GB of storage. If you need more than that, a 1TB+ wireless hard drive might be better.

    Also, if the Android device supports USB-OTG, you can use a standard USB flash drive with a suitable adapter (or a micro-USB flash drive like the ones shown below).

    Aggh! Now I know about the screen size, I want to wait for the Nexus 5!

    My phone arrived Friday. I'm waiting for the new sim card, but all essential apps plus most others installed. Loads of space left, battery lasting day, so loving it.

    My only worry is what am I going to use as a hand warmer in the winter without my overheating Sensation?

    I have 16gb onboard and 64gb sd card in my very old Galaxy S2

    Best thing with android is the choice of hardware types.

    Still waiting for my micro sim, but on wireless, I'm loving the Nexus 4. The battery is lasting days as opposed to the Sensation.

    On the Sensation, I think I have found the problem with its slow response. I found the Fastboot option was ticked.... unticked and fingers crossed.

    make sure you go through all the settings so battery lasts longer.

    Best two apps for helping with battery life for me have been Lux Lite and Battery Widget Reborn. Only two apps I've wanted to pay for, other than Swype.

    Thanks, I'm pretty certain all other settings are fine. Fastboot off has made a huge difference. Before i could type a whole sentence before it started to register on screen.
