Screen broke off of phone

All the ribbon connectors at the top of the phone broke when it was dropped and the screen popped off. The screen itself doesn't appear damaged but the ribbon cables all broke where the screen hinges at the top. Can I simply replace the cables? If so which ones do I need?

Is this a good question?

If all cables are ripped, it's a new screen, home button extension cable and front camera ribbon cable assembly.

New screen = 2 cables (LCD and Digitizer)

Front Camera Assembly = One cable (sits behind at the top part of the screen)

Home Button Extension Cable = One cable (long one)

There is a chance that the phone might not be easily fixable as the connectors (pins and socket) on the board can get damaged when the cables are physically ripped as that requires force.

With those images provided. The metal housing frame needs to be bent back in place so that the screen can sit in properly.

Has never been repaired. I guess it was the perfect drop.
