Why We Offer Both Options
Whilst we'd prefer to only fit OEM and original parts, replacement OEM screens can be expensive to buy, and so a repair is not within everyone's budget.
Whilst most repair centres will only offer copy screens (and perhaps tell you that they're original); and Apple only offer their own original screens; we like to give our customers the choice.
How To Pick
We recommend that you base your choice on the following criteria:
Original - OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer)
The screens are manufactured to the same specification as the original, or are original LCD’s/OLED's (display panels) that have been refurbished with brand new OEM-quality glass and touchscreen, so it looks and works just like the original part. In most cases, we refurbish original displays.
Apple do not sell their parts, so this is the highest quality option that you can get at a repair centre.
Fault/defect rate: 1-2%
Compatible - Non-OEM (Not Original Equipment Manufacturer)
These screens are aftermarket. They are designed and manufactured by an alternative company to be fully compatible with the relevant model.
Display quality and resolution is not quite as good. For LCD screens, these components utilise a medium brightness backlight, as opposed to a high brightness backlight.
Not all screens are equal. We use the highest quality compatible assemblies available. They cost a little bit more, but they are more reliable.
Fault/defect rate: 3-4%
If you're not happy with the compatible screen, you can pay the difference to upgrade to an original screen at no additional labour cost.
For models that use OLED screens; iPhone X, XS, XS Max, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, 12 series, 13 series and 14 series; we offer one or two compatible options:
Non-OEM (Compatible LCD)
HQ Non-OEM (Compatible OLED)
LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display. OLED stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diode. OLED is a newer, more advanced technology which offers superior quality and performance to LCD. OLED screens have better contrast, higher brightness, fuller viewing angle, wider colour range and faster refresh rates.
Aftermarket manufacturers have created an LCD that is compatible with iPhone's that use OLED screens. The display quality is not as good as an OLED screen. LCD screens consumer more power, so battery life may be slightly lower. An LCD screen is the cheapest available option.
We use Soft OLED screens, which are significantly better quality than Hard OLED versions. They fit into the frame properly and are more durable. The overall quality and functionality of these screens are close to original screens, yet not as expensive.
If your device uses an OLED, we recommend having an OLED replacement screen fitted.
