    Hi, i have had my S4 for about a month now, and just today it finally happend, i dropped it
    No my luck wasn't that bad, i came out of it with only a minor crack in the screen bezel. still hurts though
    My question is, is there anyway to just replace this small screen bezel without going crazy and disassembling the whole phone like shown on numerous youtube videos as if your replacing the whole display. If there is any advice about this issue please let me know, thank you, i appreciate it.

    I would probably cry, even though it's really not that bad. That's just me...

    No, unfortunately not. That particular thin piece of plastic is part of the mid-plate that the AMOLED display sits on. To replace it you would need a new mid-plate and a really skilled hand to remove the lens/AMOLED display without damaging it. It can be done but if you mess up or damage the screen you would have to replace a pretty expensive screen, too.
