Then I came across an entire replacement front housing HERE.
Has anyone bought something like this? It seems like it would be super easy to replace.
I have bought 2 so far, with the front housing.Those are the best option since they are super easy to replace, unlike the digitizer only (which is also harder to find).The 3rd option is glass+screen assembly but that is the same as replacing the digitizer itself so ye.Also the Moto G has its plastic around the glass sticking up a bit for protection, which makes the replacement of that xtra hard (you can literally ruin the frame even if you done that multiple times on different phones).Also you are safe of getting dust between the glass and the display (which is very annoying).
When you get digitizer+display+frame, you`re esentially saving yourself shidload of trouble and avoiding all that I've mentioned above.There are only 2 things you need to move on --> the earphone and the microphone (depends on the revision of the board).
