unfortunatley no because my only camera is on the phone. it is literally an almost perfect straight line from charger port to other side of screen

Also, connecting the provided usb otg cable and plugging in a mouse will allow you access if the screen is unresponsive.

Hi

Was the phone obtained through O2 ?

You could approach the manufacturers uk support page http://support.sonymobile.com/gb/ (recommended), or you could ask O2 repairs ,and its then up to their take on the damage.

You could also check any household contents insurance or some bank accounts provide cover. Check T&C and excess fees.

Basically, if the cracks is a single line with ZERO impact shatter, then you need to get it to Sony, forget doing it via O2 as they will send to Anova and they wont replace it or fix it. You might find it was the charging port overheating that caused the weak point to shatter but only Sony service centre will look into this.
If the crack has impact shatter points, I doubt Sony will fix free.

A single line is good proof that no external force did the damage.
