So I dropped my phone on the street yesterday, and unfortunately the glass seems to have cracked. The screen itself is fully functional, which makes me wonder if this is repairable. I've looked around a bit and found out it may have been the digitizer, which is quite inexpensive and easy to replace, but I'd rather ask for help here before attempting anything.

I know it's low quality... I'll post a high def one tomorrow morning.
Thank you in advance!

Well, it's the San Francisco version. Does that change anything?

I replaced mine last year (needs doing again as it's been well used !)

It's quite easy to do - there's a guide on here I used.... just take care with the little ribbon cable/connector !!

Okay, guys, more problems coming up... I ordered a digitzer yesterday, so hopefully I'll get this matter fixed, but well...
The power button of the phone also seems to have broken. And I'm not talking about the plastic one that's on the back cover of the device - I'm talking about the tiny black thing that's on the mainboard. It started malfunctioning at first, and right now it works as if it's constantly being held down. Any chance I could fix that myself? I'm pretty sure the mechanism is dead, so I'd need to get a new one. I got the phone from eBay and I'm pretty sure there's no warranty for it.
