Default [Q] Replace front glass on my S3 :(

Hi.
Accidentally dropped my s3 i9300 ( ofcaurse at day when i don't had lifeproof on in ) and front screen has a one crack from top to the bottom.
Im ok with replace it by self together with video from xda user http://goo.gl/120AwW
This was created in 2012. I wont to ask you noob questions:

1. Is this the best way to replace it?
2 . Do i have to replace digitize or only front glass ?
3. Which glass/screen is the best to buy as replacement ? ( is possible to buy better then original - like for s4 or better ? )

Thank You for any help.

Yes but u ve to be very careful when u remove your broken screen. Make sure you get the screen hot enough without frying yr lcd. What u are replacing is only the glass, the digitizer is a film glued on the lcd.careful not to lift it up when remmoving yr glass also be careful of the flex cable for menu and back button. Never start from bottom. One thing for sure yr phone will be the same again as the original does not have a gap between the glass and the lcd it is filled with glue.Its better to buy the complete assembly from aliexpress cost abt $90US. Cheers
