Dropped phone ideas?

I was making a phone call and right as I put it up to my ear I dropped it.  Amazingly after falling nearly six feet it hit flat.  Not sure whether front or back side.

I now have no display and every approximately 15 seconds the phone vibrates briefly and the red light below and to left of front camera lights for a couple of seconds. Sucks. Darn thing's only a couple of months old and I was enjoying using it.

No combination or duration of button pressing has done anything.  Anybody have a miracle solution or best way to proceed with repair if even worth it.

Thank you.

    The OLED panel isn't mounted with much protection.  It shatters if the phone is dropped flat and it costs $79 to fix.

    The screen itself is fine.  No cracks at all.  I thought that was rather impressive actually.  The phone just isn't working anymore. :-(

    Rotate the phone slowly under direct sunlight while watching the edges.  You'll probably see a faint hairline crack or a distortion in the rainbow patterns.  If not, try returning the phone.  Most stores have a dumb crack=abuse policy.  Might as well exploit that to your advantage since they've been screwing everybody who had something crack without abuse.
