When you drop your phone, and the screen is cracked or shattered, your worst fear for your phone has been realized. Phone screens can be expensive to replace, but that depends mostly on which screen you’ve damaged.
On most smartphones, there’s a front screen that protects and enhances the LCD screen below. The LCD screen is the more important of the two and provides all the display features along with the touch interface that is vital for a smartphone to function. It would be better for the front screen to be damaged, than for the damage to extend into the LCD screen. However, you should fix your front screen as soon as you can. If your front screen is damaged, you still run the risk of compromising the LCD screen, because the front screen offers less protection if it is cracked or shattered.
While many people experience cracked smartphone screens, if you take the necessary steps to protect your phone, you can escape that frustrating fate.

Physical impact such as pinched ear-bud or a pen under the lid will result in LCD damage. Cracks that occur near the bottom of the screen will affect most of the image because the pixel pathways from the LCD driver will all be severed at the source.
