If you are a handy DIY type of person, your can buy a replacement screen and tools.  Replace it yourself.  Watch the following video to determine whether you can handle the job.

I have replaced screens on my phone before its pretty difficult if you have no experience you'll need a warm stove element a wedge and a scraper blade. 

 

It may be cheaper to replace the screen though!

Thanks that will save a lot of trouble. I had replaced the screen on my iPad 4 and it was a lot of work. So I am on the hunt for a refurbished iPhone.

Replacement screens can be of exactly the same quality if the replacement is the same part (or equivalent) and if the repair is done correctly.  Unfortunately, most of the screens out there aren't original  (even when the seller says that it is) resulting in a lower quality image in order to save money in manufacturing costs.

 

@andlock  Apple would definitely be able to repair the phone properly and with an original part, but the price could be more than the device is worth. I believe that Apple also does have a fixed replacement phone price available to those have broken their phones by accident. Check with Apple about that.
