I cannot determine if the glass is fused with display or not.

If the outer glass (digitizer), not the display itself, is broken, do you think a replacement of just the outer glass is possible? Or are you not able to remove just the outer glass? I know you said you weren't sure, but I thought I'd check anyways.

I found a replacement outer glass replacement for about $40 that I was considering buying, otherwise a full screen and digitizer assembly about $220...

[Outer Glass]
[Full Assembly]

I have a diagonal crack on the bottom left corner of my phone from a fluke drop of my phone landing.... It landed face down and a small pebble caught the inner bottom left corner of the screen when it landed and caused a fairly clean crack.

The screen appears to be welded or glued to the plastic frame. Without removing the screen from the frame it's impossible to know if the glass can be separated from the screen.

Have a look at the pictures in the first post, you'll see examples of what I think is holding the screen to the frame. If you recognize the bonding method then you may know how to deal with it.

Moto will replace broken glass for $100.

Since the battery case for the xt926 maxx is available, if you have the non-maxx you could purchase the maxx cover, and gain the extra 2mm for the inductive charger.
