    They will charge him, a warranty covers internal (sometimes external) damage that is caused via no means of your own eg. battery dies, pixels don't work.

    To get cover for something you have inflicted yourself you must buy Apple Care.

    Waterdamage is a strict nono. Like Chicken said, battery dying and dead pixels they won't fix w/o Apple Care.

    The entire front panel can be replaced by the user and as long as you do it right, it's incredibly easy, doesn't require opening the entire device, and Apple will never know if you bring it in for something that is covered under warranty. You can find a front panel on eBay and follow these instructions on replacing it.

    They will probably just give you a new iPhone.

    It won't be a new iPhone, it will be a refurbished one.
