5s Cracked Screen: Can I buy the glass only (without Digitizer)?
My girlfriend has dropped her iPhone 5s and shattered the glass outer panel. After looking on this site for a while, it seems my options are relegated to buying the "iPhone 5s LCD Screen and Digitizer" or "iPhone 5s LCD Screen and Digitizer Full Assembly," either one of which will cost around $100 for a new one, including tools.
My question is this:
Can I buy the front glass panel by itself, and if so, should I?
I really don't want to break the bank on this repair, as money is quite tight at the moment, and I honestly don't like wastefully buying parts that I don't need. It seems to me that the only part I need is the one that is broken; the glass outer panel. I have seen other sites offering the glass only (aftermarket part, plus tools) for a fraction of the price.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Is this a good question?
