Screen Glass and LCD Repair

iPhone 7 Plus LCD replace
Screen Glass cracked?
LCD display problem?

Before you repair the iPhone screen, you should read this.

There are two methods in the market.

Method 1

Replace the whole LCD panel which comes with glass and touch digitizer.
Very easy to the repairer. By just using screwdrivers to complete the job.

Usually, you see outside dealers offering REPAIR WITHIN 30 MIN. QUICK REPAIR JOB.
Then this is the method they repair your screen.

but BEWARE, there are few types of LCD.
I list down those keywords that Malaysia dealers usually use.

Type of LCD screen: 

Original - Color, touch-sensitive is perfect. glass material is gorilla glass that hard to scratch.

OEM - This is a very confusing term since OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacture. Mean it's still original. But I don't know since when the Malaysia dealers saying OEM parts are high quality, not ori. In computer world, OEM mean parts ori that without box, not sell in a good looking packing box or not mean for sale in retails.

Here I add another.

OEM Grade A - A very high-quality compatible part that can match up with OEM. But in our Shop, OEM parts we sell are still Original Parts but it's been refurbished, renew, recondition. 

NOT ORIGINAL - A low quality compatible screen made by unknown manufacturer. Touch sensitive is effected (Very noticeable if you gaming with iPhone). Pixel should be the same in recently 2018. Color is slightly darker or brightness not so great as original.
Also is the most problematic one.
Might burn your display IC, end up no matter what LCD you put in, it won't display anything, just blank, and computer still can detect or phone still can ring. (If you have this issue, send to us)

SECOND HAND - Used parts that disassembled from other iPhone.

Method 2

Replace the glass only.
Cheaper than replacing an original LCD.
But only can do this if your LCD display still ok and the touch no problem.

LCD and touch sensitive will not be affected since the glass is an outer layer which can be separate cut by special machine. Next step clean all glue and pieces, then apply the glass by another machine. The last step is put into a machine that vacuums out the air bubble that still stuck between glass and LCD.

This is a very time-consuming work that estimates 2 to 3 hours between.
If the dealer said 30 min or less, I'm sure he replaces the whole LCD.
Why not use your own LCD if it's still fine? LCD also has a limited lifespan, be sure using your own one.

If you choose this method, be sure to ask "Is there a guarantee in the process?".
Some shop doesn't warranty anything. If the screen died in the process, will they replace an LCD or the customer pay for more?

NOTE: Glass replacement we don't do anymore. Sorry.
Very few customers appreciate our workmanship quality which is a higher cost than other shops.
The cost is almost like a Grade A OEM screen replacement.
Why not put the tools out front? Unless they don't have the skill or machine.
If the display got a problem, can't do glass change. Need to replace the LCD
