    Something was obviously damaged with the drop and I doubt anyone here will be able to tell you exactly what is damaged and needs to be replaced.

    The iPhone includes a one year warranty, but the warranty does not include accidental damage. Apple offers an out of warranty or not covered under the warranty "repair" price, which pays for an exchange at a discounted price off the full retail sales price, or take it to a 3rd party repair shop for it to be inspected and tested along with a quote for the repair. Opening the iPhone yourself or having a 3rd party do this voids the warranty so after you get it repaired, the warranty is void.
