What is this part called in English?

Hello! I got a banged up iPhone 5S 32 GB silver edition from a customer I do tech support for. She said it was dead. I said it is just a flesh-wound (referring to the Black Knight from Monthy Python. Don't know if she got it). Here is an image of the front

And here is of the back

My question is what is the back called? Not the display-part but where the logic board and stuff are placed. I tried search for "case" and similar key-words but I got result for the phone case, those things you put upon the phone to protect it. My thought is to buy a new or refurbished part and repair it. I have already tested the iPhone with a spare screen I have at home. And it works. Seems "only" it will need a new thing for the logic board and such and a new screen.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

frame or housing is what I've always called it. Is the aluminum part of it damaged or just the glass shattered? The glass can be ordered separately and found by just searching rear glass top or bottom

Thank you oldturkey03 and Bobby for your answers. Now I know what I am looking for. Thank you oldturky03 for the direct link. I live in Sweden and buying parts from the USA may cost extra in VAT and other taxes or other import fees.

Sadly Bobby, the frame is bend. See image:

But. It seems like it can be repaired. Horay!
