So the other day I dropped my brand new S4 from about two feet which broke the LCD screen and now the phone does not power on whatsoever. No power LEDs while plugged In no nothing!

Is this normal or common and what would be the reason for this?

I just didnt know if it was common to drop your S4 and kill it completely.

I don't mean to sound like an idiot, but does that mean there's no hope for the phone. I have one with a similar issue. I'm not worried about warranties or anything b/c this phone was given to me pro-bono. I'm interested in reselling the phone, but not if it's just not worth the cost. Can I replace the LCD and all problems solved? Or will I need to replace the mobo too? I've already opened this bad boy up and there were no loose connections that I could see. Checked all connections just to be sure, but there were no problems found. Thanks for the help
