There are a few differences between the two types of screens:
- Brightness level (10% difference)
- Color Tone & Vibrancy
- Touch sensitivity
- Glass quality
- Thickness level
- Warranty period (3 months vs 6 months)
Both will function the same and can do the same things however depending on the user preference they are able to choose which quality screen they want.
If your iPhone back glass is broken but you want to fix just the front screen then you will be risking a few things that can happen to your phone. At Fixpod we always offer a discount on the iPhone back glass replacement if you wish to fix the front screen also.The new front screen installed will develop a fault such as lines, damaged oled or lifting screen bezel frame. The back glass acts as a stabliser in the structure of the iPhone. Without the backglass intact, the phone or logic board will flex when its in your pocket or moving about. This will inheritantly cause issues after a few weeks or month. We do not accept these issues under our warranty policy if you choose this option as you will need to accept these risks.
Your iPhone’s water/dust resistant feature will be compromised. You will risk getting dust inside the rear camera module. If this is the case, there is no possible way to clean on the interior of the camera module, only a replacement camera will fix this issue. Liquid damaged will not be covered under our warranty policy should liquid is found inside your phone due to exposed iphone back glass.
