    My phone has a slight crack on the bottom right corner. Everything works fine except the touch sensor on the bottom 1/4 of my phone. Because of that, I can’t unlock my phone or press home button. Should I replace the whole screen or just the glass?

    What should i do?

    To Ali i think is lcd,buy a new screen if is not on warranty,you can change yourself the lcd,you can find parts on the internet.
    Search on youtube how to do it,do not worry is not nuclear science.
