OEM vs Non-OEM Screens For iPhone 7 & 8


We offer our customers two types of replacement screen for the following devices:

- Apple iPhone 7
- Apple iPhone 7 Plus
- Apple iPhone 8
- Apple iPhone 8 Plus

You can select either option online or in-store.

Product Specifics

- OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) – made by one of the companies that manufactures screens for new Apple iPhones, to the same specification as an original component. The screens are original LCD’s (display panels), refurbished with brand new OEM glass and touchscreen, so it's the same as the original part. This is the highest quality option available.

- Non-OEM - manufactured by an alternative company; fully compatible with the relevant model.
Display quality and resolution is slightly poorer. The difference is minimal but noticeable. 

Why We Offer Both Options

Whilst we always prefer to fit OEM and original parts, replacement OEM screens for the iPhone 7 & 8 are particularly expensive to buy - meaning the price of a screen repair is considerably higher than it is compared to the other iPhone models. Whilst most repair centres will only offer one type of replacement screen, we like to give our customers the choice. Both options are of equal value. 

What You Need To Know

- You get the same warranty with either option.
- Both components have identical functionality.
- A water resistant seal is not guaranteed with either option - as with any water resistant device that has been damaged.
