Default [Q] S3 LTE Broken screen fix?

Allright, i recently broke my S3 Lte's screen, which is still working properly even though the glass is shattered. So i was just wondering, would this kit work/fit properly as an replacement, because the genuine screen is like +100$ expensive? http://www.ebay.com/itm/for-Samsung-...-/300865220725
Because the glass part of the screen is broken, not the digitizer or none of them under the glass. Thanks for help in advance!

Yeah you can do that, i did it myself too. But you have to be really careful man, because if your digitizer get's damaged, you're ****ed. Plus i would buy one with some tools included.

True, but the regular S3 is from the outside (screen/frame/battery) exactly the same as the LTE version, the only difference is a little more RAM and 4G. I used the regular screen too bro.

Is the touchscreen still working properly and responding to touch like with the original screen? Going to buy that fix right away!
