I'm afraid it's not good news. Replacing the screen is expensive. There are two options. You can do it yourself and pay about 120 for a replacement screen but risk completely destroying your phone if you make a mess of it, or you could pay someone else to do it. This will cost 140-180.

Unfortunately the screen is probably the single most expensive component in the whole phone.

Unless you are very good at handling delicate electronics and have experience of doing so, particularly with modern devices that are glued together rather than screwed together, I strongly advice you to pay a reputable repairer to do it for you.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums CrackedS4!

Assuming, as you live in the UK, that you have the GT-i9505 version of the Galaxy S4, (see #1.2 of 23 Galaxy S4 models - know yours?), you will need to ascertain if it is just the screen that is affected or the screen and digitizer.

I would always recommend a professional repair, either via a Samsung Service Point or the CarPhoneWarehouse's Geek Squad. Prices for such repairs are around 170 for severe repairs, as shown here...

Samsung Galaxy screen repairs at Carphone Warehouse | Geek Squad

Alternatively you can buy spares from the internet and a typical price is around 120 for glass and digitizer as shown here...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-Galaxy-compatible-GENUINE-original/dp/B00DOYFC5M

or for screen only, about 50...

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=samsung+i9505+glass+screen+cost&oq=samsun g+i9505+glass+screen+cost&aqs=chrome..69i57.26237j 0j7&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=0&ie=UTF-8#q=samsung+i9505+glass+screen+cost&tbm=shop&spd=3 302908159309455159

If you wish to carry out the repairs yourself there are a number of instructional sites on the web. Here are 2. One for screen and digitizer replacement...

and one for screen replacement only...

I know you said you dont have insurance, is it phone insurance you are on about?

The reason i ask is a lot of household contents insurance policies cover your phone & most people are in a position where they are covered by these.

I did say it wasn't good news .

Do consider what Anoniemouse said above. My household contents insurance also covers my phone and this is fairly common. If you have contents insurance, check with your insurer or the policy wording. If you don't, you are sadly out of luck.
