I like to replace the screen.  Anyone got experience with replacing a screen on this phone?  How hard?

I also confused what to buy.  They sell screen, and digitizer, lens, etc.  Do I need to buy all these?  Please advice.
Would this one work for example:

Thanks!  What's the difference between digitizer and display?  I thought this is all in one.

In some devices it is as one part, in other as 2 parts. Digitizer is a top layer, it's above display.

So I guess in my case I need to replace both.  Digitizer and the actual screen.
