    the great white north
    my phone fell out of my pocket face down onto the street a while ago. a few pixels died in patches, then a few in the center of the patch started working, and a couple lines of dead pixels worked their way across my screen. the touchscreen works fine, and although the glass is a tad scratched i don't feel it needs to be replaced. i want to fix it, but i am unsure if i need to buy just the LCD, or the LCD and digitizer?

    would this work?
    LCD screen

    or do i need something like this?
    LCD screen + digitizer

    many thanks.

    You need touch screen and digitizer in one piece. The repair isn't easy without experience.
