Question on screen replacement.

I search up on the prices of the screens so I can get an idea on how much it may need to be. So my phone's screen is just cracked and I want to replace it. But when I search online it shows me 2 types of screens. Just the glass and the whole LCD screen. Which do I really need. I'm guessing the glass only, but I am not to sure. And anyone clarify on this to me please.

Depending on the tools you own and experience you have on doing Glass Only replacements on the Samsung Galaxy models (I assume not much from your question)... I would urge you to do the Whole assembly. If you do the glass only, it takes quite a bit of skill and experience to remove the glass without breaking your LCD. And even if you are lucky enough to get the glass off, cleaning the OCA glue is a rather difficult process as well. IF you manage both of these things successfully, you still have the hard part of applying New OCA or LOCA glue to apply the new glass and it is extremely difficult to without getting the glue inside the Backlight/under the LCD and botching the whole job.

Samsung is proud of their LCD's and it shows in the price, but you would be best served in paying a bit more for the assembly and doing without the headach and heart break of a glass only repair.

If you need any more information and decide to move forward with the Glass only anyway, feel free to repost any questions and I'd be happy to answer. Sometimes, it is even cheaper to just find another good deal on a used phone than to buy the new LCD.

Best of Luck!

To make proper glass replacement repair you should need the special tools, other way you just broke the display or the frame will be sticking out of the frame, due the wrong adjustment. The whole process looks like this:
