Default Severe Drop/Fixed my device

Was testing out my Desire X's camera and my butter finger'ness came back and it slipped, smashed the ground. The screen looks fine, it just smashed open st the bottom. The battery doesn't really fit in properly, but if you push it in hard it fits in properly, but the device doesn't turn on.

There is also this two clips, does it have anything to do with proving battery power?

My question is, can this device still be recoverable as its not as bad. And I had paid money for it. Cheapest way to fix this? I've tried pushing everything into place but it just flings out.

When connecting the device to the PC it has a blinking led at the top which is red. Which blinks on and off.

Edit - the device turns on just fine oo freaking strong device.

Yeah, should be fixable. I think you'll need this as replacement and hopefully it will work fine then. Didn't test myself, I only had to replace screen assembly some time ago, but this part is easy to replace, provided that you've got the right screw driver available.
