I dropped my Galaxy s4 a few days ago, the glass didnt break, but I can see underneath the pixels separated or something, and the underlying copper is visible. The touchscreen still works (I can answer calls by swiping), but the screen itself is blank; the pixels occassionally flare when I try to use it, but thats it. Idk what I need to repair, like what part I need to buy and what steps I need to make.. I have a friend who offered to repair it for me if I got what was needed, but he also said I may be able to do it myself pretty easily, if I'm willing. I watched some YouTube tutorials on screen replacement, but I don't know what exactly I need. I'm just trying to get a link to what it may be? I search "galaxy s4 lcd screen replacement" and some of the things are ~200$ and others are <100.. do I need to get a whole new front-face and simply replace the chipset, or can I just take the glass off stick a new screen on?
TL;DR Noob with a ruined LCD display but functioning touch, what do I need to buy to replace it?
Yea.. I realized after I posted that I derped. Also my provider is USCellular, if that makes a difference? I'm seeing now that I'm looking that there are different models carried by different providers (on Amazon).
