Broken front screen (touchscreen still works).
My s8 was apparently damaged while in my pocket (phone is 2 wks old, never dropped).
Damage is limited to a small (5mm) part on the lower corner, and I'm still able to use the touch functions. (turned on developer options, and feature that lights-up where touched - and entire screen touch still works, even where glass is broken.)
I have put some clear plastic adhesive tape over the broken part of the glass to prevent cracks from spreading as a temporary fix.
Touch function still works, can I simply replace the front glass? I see some options on ebay for about $30. (incl tools). "S8 Glass Replacement Screen Lens Front Outer Repair Parts". (I do not see this available on ifixit - otherwise I'd prefer ifixit as a vendor, of course).
Or do I need to buy a whole new digitizer (@$300)?
Is this a good question?
