It's difficult to tell from just a picture. If you have access to the phone, I would test all of the functionality to be sure. If it's not cloud locked and it's just the digitizer and LCD replacement, you can get the assembly from this site for around $140.

Oh! Cloud locked refers to the icloud account still being logged into the phone and nobody has the password. The phone will not allow you to use it unless you enter the password. You will be able to tell after the initial setup.

Best of luck.

It is not Cloud locked and according to the owner, the only disfunctionality is the screen. I am far from being an expert, but I have read that it is possible to replace only the digitizer, is that true? How do I know if I need to replace the LCD, digitizer or both?

I am unaware of an option to just replace the digitizer. Even if there was the option there is a very high possibility of getting dust dirt and smudges on the LDC and in-between the LCD and digitizer.

Here are your choices from this site anyway.

You can just check icloud activation lock by entering the imei from the simccard slot or behind the phone from here: https://www.icloud.com/activationlock

Hello Francisco,

Firstly you definitely have to chance the whole screen, because you can't change the glass, because it sticks to the display. But if you can't test it if everything else is working it is hard to say whats to change. If you can, test all functions before you buy it.
