dropped a dumbbell on my phone at the gym DUH!

Texto:

well, it slipped outa my pocket while doing dumbbell flys and since my headphones were in I didn't note an issue till I let go of the dumbbells about 3" from floor.  It was a 50Lb weight that landed squarly on the screen.    So here's the deal.... The frame is fine, the shattering of the screen goes straight across the width of the phone so it was evenly spread out.  The music stopped at that moment, there is no vibration or sound but the screen was showing the time for awhile (like till evening) I was able to download everything from the phone onto my laptop so the hardware seems okay.  I am debating whether to tear it down and replace the front panel (three piece component) since the phone is only 4 months old. ouch!! Wondering if anyone has any insight as to whether there is much hope in saving the phone....

I am a mechanic by trade and work on Land Rovers so electrical messes are not a problem for me, I don't have a diagnostic background on this phone though. Seems a waste to pitch it but it's also a waste to buy the parts etc if one of the symptoms I mentioned is a dead giveaway that it's dead beyond saving.  Thanks in advance for any input.
