As a result of a fall (me and the phone both) I see that now the phone isn't straight anymore but somewhat curved, and there is a gap between the display and the body of the phone, where the light shines out.
I add two links with the images (the interface doesnt allow me to post images directly).
I have two questions I would be very happy if you could give me your input for:
  • how long could i expect the phone to continue living? It has been a bit more than 24h and it is alive (at the moment most phones I would like are sold out, or outside my budget, but Im worried mine would die and sudddenly I have nothing)
  • should i try to seal the gap, and how?
would very much appreciate advice!

No way at all to guess if there will be a future time where the phone will fail.
Of course it's best to get it sealed again but there is a decent chance something will break if you try to bend it into shape again. You may want to just leave it as it is since it's working. If you just want to put something over that gap, they make special adhesives for phones, just be careful applying it so it stays mostly on the outside of the phone https://www.amazon.com/ZHANLIDA-Adhesive-Multi-Function-Suitable-Jewelery/dp/B09B63HS12/ref=asc_df_B09B63HS12/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=532930219139&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=6566796434856199931&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9001809&hvtargid=pla-1423551819066&psc=1

I will try that.
For now it is still alive, but there is a bit of a shadow along the crack visible on the screen, and that is not a good sign. I have got another phone and am using that one.
Thank you so much
