Exclamation [Q] [S4] LCD or Glass broken ?

Hello ,
two days ago this phone glass broke because it fell on the ground.
I want to know is it the glass that broke ( can repare for 15 euro ) or is it the whole LCD that broke ( 100+ euro to repare )

Everything works , the screen is responsive everywhere. The broken part is on the top right of the phone .
There are also vertical color bars now. When I just start phone they aren't here but after some milisecs they come and change everytime I do something too .
Here some pictures ( I can't post urls , those are just tinypic links no virus)

Is it the LCD or just the glass ?
Thanks in advance

Those lines are on the LCD, so its the LCD, it doesn't look broken really. Maybe the shock of the fall slightly disconnected something on the inside of your device, the ribbon maybe.

If I were you I'd take it to Samsung or a pro. But yes, that would be the 1st step
