    Hi guys,
    I attempted to follow a guide on youtube to replace my front screen as it was cracked, and it went wrong :(
    The phone still rings and sounds as it should, and the led light at the top comes on, i just have no screen
    I have taken some pics of the phone as it is now, any advice would be great, or if it is even worth getting fixed for what the phone is worth...
    Thanks



    This part is still connected to the phone on the side

    It depends on the condition of the mother board. Being a somewhat older device, it may be more worth your while to invest in something newer. Don't get me wrong, I still use my S4 as a daily driver, and i love it. If something major happens, I won't invest in it further, though. I'm guessing that since you attempted this repair on your own that this might not be a viable option for you financially. In the future please refer to iFixit for any repair guides. It is a very valuable resource. I don't trust Youtube very much for such things.
