    Lcd is fine works when touched with the protective glass off, just dont know if its necessary to do the new digitizer as well.

    The digitizer is what detects the touch, so evidently yours isn't broken, but it's buily as part of the glass, so you'd be replacing the glass/digitizer.

    However, I don't recommend that you try it yourself, despite the many, many Youtube videos you've seen on how easy it is. Whatever they claim, doing the first time usually results in one of 3 things - you don't heat the glass enough and you tear the screen when you pull the glass off, you don't heat the glass enough and it pope when you remove it, puncturing the screen or you overheat the glass, ruining the screen. Then you have to replace the entire screen. That usually results in breaking something inside the phone, requiring more parts. Eventually you end up paying about what the whole phone is worth.

    It's cheaper to being it to a reliable repair shop and pay them to replace the glass. (You can probably use the phone the way it is, with a screen protector on it, until you get tired of it and sell it on Swappa.)
