Glass and display broken, what do I need?

Hello, I've had my phone broken for over a month but it was fine up until today. My phone fell and the glass cracked, oh well. I learned to live with it and I was fine. However, it wasn't until I dropped it again (this time without the case, I'm so dumb I know) and a piece of the display? (I don't know what to call it) broke off. It's a piece of the white front shell that is on the top right corner of the phone next to the front camera. Again, I learned to live with it since it didn't affect the actual display. Until I dropped it again and the actual display is now weird.

My phone (sorry for the crappy pics)


1. I've never had any experience repairing phones, how hard would it be?

2. What do I need to repair? the obvious things of course, but is there something else I'm not seeing?

3. What do I need to buy?

Everything you need is in this repair guide. It's not very difficult but there are a few gotcha's you have to be wary of.

  • Always disconnect the battery first and connect it last.
  • Keep track of your screws as mixing them up and re-installing them in the wrong place can seriously damage your phone.

I would read through the guide first, look at the parts needed (some come with tools) and decide if you feel comfortable.
