Phone would connect to iTunes and I could hear Siri but no display.
I ordered the Display assembly, followed the guide, had trouble with the corner screw by the headphone jack and had to remove the jack. There was also a cross threaded screw on one side (was able to pull and then push new screen in anyway). I also botched the reassembly trapping the power button under the logic board which made it inoperable, but the rest of the phone works perfectly.
Take your time. Use the screw template, watch for the corner screws and the power button cable when putting the logic board back on. This is totally doable.

Earpiece speaker had not worked for several months, screen was broken from a recent fall that caused a crack dead center from top to bottom of the front glass.
Removing the battery proved a challenge, the spudger did not do the job properly. I eventually broke the plastic tab that should have assisted me in removing the battery. Instead I started by removing the motherboard, then removed the battery using a credit card.
Replacing the earpiece speaker was no easy task compared to replacing the screen. After I had replaced the earpiece I had difficulty installing the power button, now the button feels quite stiff and takes more force to press than before. However it is working and I see no reason to tear the phone apart to fix that small of an issue.
If your battery is especially stuck to the case, do not use excessive force trying to remove it with the spudger. It is entirely possible to remove the motherboard before removing the battery if you are careful. Using a credit card to pry the battery from the case did no damage at all.
I managed to strip what looked like 2 resistors or capacitors from the motherboard, this was caused by my trying to pry up the battery with the spudger. I do not know what they do (or rather did), but the phone has been functioning perfectly for nearly a week now so I am not concerned.
Also be careful when removing the power button, I get the feeling I missed something when disassembling it causing my problems during reassembly.
