Unhappy [Q] I dropped my S4 i9500.

Well, the worst thing happened, I dropped my i9500. I would rather die. Now there's a red line on my screen on the left side of screen. It dropped on its base (the battery side) yet, it affected the screen. It's static, stays, changes color according to the app I'm using. Like right now it's red on the keyboard, but kinda green on the chrome app. I'm sorry I don't know how to view screen shots, but I've attached two .png file.
My question, can I make this right, or do I have to take it to the Samsung people?

Oh man! I just viewed the screenshot from my computer, and I don't see any line. So, basically it's somewhere below the screen, where the software doesn't capture it in screenshots.

Just give it to the Samsung people if you still have warranty

Unfortunately i think you cracked your display. Fortunately it still works. Screenshot doesn't capture it because it's physical. Not a software issue. I payed almost 200 euros to change my display. It's not covered by warranty

Dude, the screen is not broken. Something's physically disturbed from the inside. And anyways, here at my place, people are stupid, so they'll just change my screen for free, 'cause they think I got warranty. :P
