GET TO KNOW OUR SCREEN LINES

At iPhoneLCD.net, we realize that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for repair shops. That’s why we offer a variety of screen lines, each designed to be perfect for a specific market.
Sometimes it’s easier to compare products side-by-side to see what suits your market best. Below you’ll find a chart of how all of our products stack up against each other, so you know exactly which one to choose for even the pickiest repair.

About Grade “Original FOG”

FOG is English, "Film On Glass" acronym, the FPC( Flexible Printed Circuit --Original iPhone flex cable) is directly bound to the display glass by the apple OEM factory. This technology is the most important for iPhone LCD quality!

Both flex cable and backlight are new.

 

About Grade “Refurbished”

“Refurbished” means nothing is changed except the front glass lens.

Both flex cable and backlight seems a bit old due to the iPhone screen have been used before.

Most of the terms used in our chart are industry-standard terms, but these terms aren’t always defined.

Here’s a little more information about some of our categories. We think it’s important that you understand exactly what you’re purchasing.

 

ORIGINAL DISPLAYS

Our ORIGINAL displays have been refurbished from used original devices OR they have been assembled using original, unused components. These assemblies may have a mix of both original and aftermarket components, but all undergo rigorous and thorough testing to ensure there are no defects in both the display panel and touch panel performance.

 

POLARIZED DISPLAYS

Polarized displays are screen assemblies that contain a polarizer. This layer allows customers to view their screen through sunglasses. However, there are a few different types of polarizers on the market. We primarily use 360 polarizers, which means your customers can view content on their phone screens through sunglasses no matter how they hold it. We do use linear polarizers on some configurations of STANDARD to ensure the assemblies are low cost for competitive areas.

 

ALIGNMENT BRACKETS & SMALL PARTS

When we talk about parts with “alignment brackets,” we’re referring to all of the brackets and meshes that would otherwise be transferred during a repair. Sometimes the industry calls this feature “sub-kitting.” All of our screens with alignment brackets include the front camera ring, proximity sensor bracket, ear speaker bracket, and ear speaker mesh. We offer two configurations of screens that come with pre-installed small parts. This is also sometimes called “loaded,” and means that they’ll have the ear speaker and front camera with proximity sensor pre-installed.

 

FRONT GLASS COATING

We know that any great repair professional will be upselling a tempered glass screen protector with every single repair. When you make a successful sale, it’s important to get the glass adhered quickly and efficiently. All of the front glass used for most of our Standard configurations come with aftermarket front glass. This allows repair professionals to quickly install tempered glass without having to rigorously wipe the screen. The glass on our Premium and INCELL lines come with a coating similar to OEM assemblies.

 

BRIGHTNESS

Consumers want a bright, fully visible screen in all situations, and you want to give your customers what they want.&nbsp iPhone LCD.net is here to help you provide exactly that. Similar to an amp in an audio setup, an LCD doesn’t always output the maximum load that the device is capable of. Darker images
utilize less of the screen’s potential, where lighter images will utilize more of its maximum output. Although the LCD doesn’t always push its maximum brightness, it is important to have an adequate brightness so that customers can still see the LCD assemblies outdoors and in direct sunlight. Brightness is typically measured in nits. The amount of light (luminance) of one nit is equal to 1 candela per square meter. A typical candle puts off roughly 1 candela per square meter. While LCDs in TVs display around 200 nits, widespread outdoor usage of smartphones means that model devices require a higher nit output. An OEM screen is approximately 500 nits, and the lower end of aftermarket screens usually produces around 200 nits. Although a 200 nit screen will perform adequately indoors in lower lighting, your customers need a screen that can stand up to the sun’s glare and brightness and still display a visible and clear picture.

 

GAMUT COVERAGE (sRGB)

The ability of a display assembly to produce a proportion of a range of colors called Gamut Coverage. We measure the range of colors apart can produce and compare it with a standard color gamut-- the RGB gamut. sRGB is used across various industries, and it allows standardization to make sure that colors look the same across a variety of devices. Original display assemblies are calibrated on a per-device basis, so actual coverage will vary when a display assembly is used on a different device. Higher measurements usually correlate with more saturated colors.

 

COLOR TEMPERATURE

Color temperature is a metric that is used to quantify the color tone of an LCD. An end user's experience will be less than ideal if an LCD assembly displays inaccurate colors. iPhoneLCD.net monitors and standardizes color temperature in our LCD assemblies because we know that screens with poor performance have a negative effect on your bottom line. The ideal color temperature reading is 6,500k. This is the color temperature of daylight, which is the reference white point of the sRGB color gamut. A deviation from the ideal color temp of 6,500k by 1,000k or less is almost unnoticeable to end-users and still provides an optimal experience. LCD assemblies with color temperatures below 5,500K will display colors with a red tint, and those with color temperatures above 7,500Kwill be tinted blue.

 

ΔE (OR DELTA E) 2000

ΔE (or Delta E) allows iPhoneLCD.net to measure our screens’ color accuracy beyond human perception. Generally speaking, ΔE is the measurement of change in visual perception between the color that an LCDis intended to display and the color that the LCD is actually displaying. Ideally, we want to stay as close as possible to ΔE = 0.
