Default Screen replacement?

Dropped nexus 4 glass screen smashed touch not working.

Is this what I need? http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/400694554462?nav=SEARCH

You could get away with just the glass and digitizer but if you have never done it before I wouldn't recommend it as it can be a PITA. The item in the link should work fine.

Should I buy with or without the frame? Does it matter? I'm just looking for the cheapest place and what to buy. Money's a bit tight and my nexus 4 picked a bad time to fall.

Ether way I'm repairing it myself just need to materials.

I would get it with the frame. To get the frame off your old one you have to carefully remove the glass without damaging the frame which is tricky without the right tools. I would just get what you presented for the easiest repair.

i have just replaced the screen assembly on my n4, i bought the screen and frame, it was a few more expensive but worth it in time saved, i don't think its worth the extra hassle to save a few
