LG Optimus G Screen not responsive to touch

Hello i recently dropped a Optimus G and the screen is pretty banged up with crackes along the whole screen. When charged the screen responds and you can still see a clear image of my background and lockscreen. but it is unresponsive to my touch when i try to unlock it. i did a bit of research online I think whats wrong is it has a broken digitizer? i just wanted to get someones opinion before i decide to order a part so i could try to replace it. Some feedback would be great thank you!

The LG line of phones have a very weak digitizer setup. If you have ever worked on a G2 or G3, a small crack in the glass (where the digitizer is attached), you will lose all or nearly all touch functionality.

This is different than, say, Samsung devices where the digitizer is a part of the LED. That's why you can replace just the lens on an S4 and save money.

The LG lineup, however, is not too keen on this type of digitizer setup. So, yes, a new display assembly will solve your touch issues. Good luck!
