    There is no cheaper way buddy. Nokia or any OEM will never do it. There might be glass-only replacements avaiable in the market, but toughest task is to remove the previously glued glass from the display, without damaging the display (which is fragile as a slightly thick paper.

    Your only scope is seeing if a repair shop has a glass replacement available and if they are skilled enough to have a relatively good success ratio at separating the glass from the display. It's a risk anyways, but I do not think the phone is very usable much since the glass shattered too much.

    I know this is an old thread. I recently broke my front glass, not as much as one in the photo. Phone is still usable and I made it better by covering it with protective tpu film. Cracks are still visible, but I can't feel them under my fingers, so I still use the phone without problems.

    I have asked around, but none of the shops were willing to try and replace the glass and new screen is $200 and just doesn't make sense to replace it.

    It is working fine till now, there is no difference other than the cracks in the screen. In fact i dropped harder after this several times but nothing happened.

    I happened to came across a youtube video where a guy replace any broken screen, it is very cheap also but i don't want to take risk. I'll try it after a year maybe.

  • I recently broke mine after it fell down from my pocket to the street. The only way I could repair it is buying a replacement of the screen with the frame included and changing all the chips and pieces from the broken to the new one screen. The replacement costs about 170€ (no cheap). Now, my phone works like a new one
