    My wife liked my S6 so much she bought one last night. This morning she dropped it and shattered the screen. Can I replace just the glass or does the digitizer need to be replaced as well?

    Thanks for the help.

    If the LCD digitizer is still working, you can attempt to replace just the glass. It's a time consuming process. You can find the front glass lens here .

    Just watch several videos and make sure you have the right tools before you begin.

    How do I know if the digitizer is good? The phone turns and is working but the screen is just a million colors and you can't do anything.

    A million colors = bad digitizer.

    NO NO NO
    The digitizer is the part of the phone that detect touch. It has NOTHING to do with a million colors aka the SAMOLED screen. If his screen is in a million colors as he states its got a broken SAMOLED screen.
    You can break the glass and have good screen, you can break the screen and have good glass. The digitizer generally is baked into the glass. ALSO on almost all new devices the glass and screen are adhered together. Making it to where the average person, and most repair shops cant even fix just a broken glass while trying to use the same screen. However if the digitizer breaks you cant see it. You can only tell if a digitizer has gone bad by the lack of touch presence or if touch is happening in random areas or NOT where your touching.
