    Hey guys, first time poster, sorry if this has been covered before.

    I recently dropped my HTC evo 4g and it landed flat on it's face. $40 otterbox didn't even stand a chance.

    Now I have a phone which will still send and receive calls, however 99% of the screen is black, except for a few spider cracks on the bottom that are showing light. The outer "glass" screen is undamaged as far as I can tell with no chipping or breakage, and the touch screen still technically works since I can swipe downwards to accept calls even though I can't see what I'm swiping. Also the bottom buttons (home, back, search) are lit up. All the damage appears to be "under" the outer "glass" screen.

    I'm unsure which screen I need to buy to fix this

    do I need an LCD replacement or a "Touch Screen Digitizer Lens"? or both?

    Once again, I apologize if this has been covered before. Thanks in advance.

    Extremely helpful, thank you, I will definitely need both.
    Now I need to figure out whether or not I have a large or small pin connector for the LCD
