when I had the screen replaced (cracked) on my S4 here in Germany by professionals they used a sealant all around the screen seal called "abtupfbar" (I suppose you could call it dab-it-off!)
(Würth or Terodicht do one)
I took the screen out myself by cutting the rubber, then did all the cleaning up around the lip, new clips, rust proofing, painting etc, then called them in to refit.
I had already bought a screen sealant, but they wouldn't use it and insisted on this "abtupfbar" stuff.....it is a sealant specifically for putting in new screens with new seals (ie. not used to try reseal old leaky screen rubbers) and one that doesn't make a sticky mess....when you got the screen in and want to remove the excess, you just make a ball of the sealant and touch it to the excess and it lifts it off, cleanly, like magic...no chemicals, no messy rags etc!
