How hard is it to replace an iPhone 5S broken screen?

I recently broke my iPhone 5S screen and decided that I should try to fix it myself.

I headed to ifixit.com to see how hard this could be. After a quick search on their website, I found the exact guide I needed as well as the price for a replacement screen. A quick look at the repair guide convinced me and off I went to order the replacement screen. A week later or so I received the package and was ready to start the surgery 🙂

Following the guide made the repair relatively easy, the only issue I experienced was that the screen connector was not exactly in place the first time I tried which resulted in screen artifacts.
