Glass only repair not digitizer

I only want to replace the glass, not the digitizer for my phone. How is this completed?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

To do this properly would involve you spending much more than a new assembly would cost. Would not recommend.

The way a samsung display is built, you can certainly replace just the glass. The s5 active (and regular s5, very similar displays) are super thin and easy to break but if you've gotten into something into a layer of the display other than the glass trying to remove it, its likely the polarizer not the digitizer.

Basing my assumption of your repair level abilities on your question, I'd advise you not attempt this repair without substantial further research.
