Phone Broken S4, want to repair on my own

Screen is cracked and the charger port is broken so i cant charge it anymore
cant turn it on even because i dont know if it is just the batery thats empty or not only the screen is cracked but also the glass?

If i buy these stuff, is these stuff all i will need to repair it or do i need something more?

There is a separate charger you can use for your battery, purchase an extra battery with the charger that charges your battery for you without it being in your phone. I have 3 batteries, 1 in my phone,1 in my wallet, and 1 that stays charged on the charger. So I rarely charge my phone just switch the batteries if that helps with your charging issue. It's a hassle, but a start if you don't want to purchase a new phone or can't fix your charge port.

I recommend you to have a professional do it. I tried to fix mine and the LCD didn't have enough glue (mfg defect) and the whole thing came out. I end up with a broken LCD that cost me $225 to fix.

Yeah if you haven't repaired anything else like this before I would send it in.
The digitizer is glued to the LCD and not easy to take off.

Just go on eBay and buy the lcd and the digitizer and the frame together. It's kind of expensive, but its better than taking the LCD and the digitizer apart. Everything you have to do is swap the internals from your broken phone to the new phone. Also make sure you YouTube some videos on how to do it and you will save yourself around 100 bucks. Good luck. I did this on my own and it was a piece of cake.
