    How Much Would I get for a damaged Samsung S4?

    Just dropped my Samsung Galaxy S4 on the step outside *sigh* It looks like I've damaged the LCD as the bottom section of the screen upto the app draw button is obscured and non-responsive (rest of the screen appears to be responsive though?) and the screen has a greenish hue...

    What am I looking at roughly if I sell it as parts? I know I'm looking at about £60 just for a new LCD off of eBay.

    Cheapest I can find is a damaged i9500 which I can rip the screen out of... most LCD screens are at least £65

    Sounds like you got off lightly and just damaged the digitiser, unfortunately I have managed to break the actual LCD panel below

    Here's a simple diagram of what I mean:

    This part is more expensive to replace... a plastic digitiser will set you back around £20 as a part and then once you add in labour it's probably around £50 to repair however the LCD panel is around £50-70 on it's own so actually with labour included your looking at about £100-£120
