Android Central Question

I dropped my phone last night and now whenever I turn it the screen off there is an orange tint over everything but it fades away in a couple seconds after turning to orange bars, should I replace it assuming its a dead screen walking? Also a funny twist, it seems to have 'fixed' the notorious ghosting issue after it warms up.

The screen is LCD - LIQUID Crystal Display. That's some of the liquid leaking out through broken tubes.

If it works for now, keep it, but keep it backed up. Eventually the screen will quit. Then you'll have to get the screen (or the phone - the OP 8 is already out, and when your screen quits the 9 or 10 may be out, making fixing a 5 not worth it) replaced. And whoever does the replacement will probably factory reset (or require you to factory reset) the phone.
