Us vs Them – Fake, Qualified, and Real

With the iPhone, iPad, and iPad in such demand around the world, it was only a matter of time that you would see 1000’s of Factories in China and Hong Kong making Copy Parts.

One of the most common part to be copied is the LCD and Digitizer.  A Quick Lesson:  The Digitizer is the Glass piece that your finger touches on the iPhone, iPod, iPad.  The LCD is the actual display under the digitizer that gives you all of the images, colors, etc.

Now we work very closely with the Manufactures for our Products.  And we often Speak to those under covering the Factories making copy replacement parts.

There are Many Different Tiers in the parts:

AAA, AA, A+, A, B, C, and OEM.  OEM is the same product Apple purchases from their factories to build iPhones.  Anything else is a Copy.  Often AAA, AA, A+ will be an OEM LCD, but a copy digitizer.  The B and C are just horrible copies that you want to run from.

Typically the AAA is a New OEM LCD, anything Below that such as the AA, A+, and A is a Used LCD that was removed from a Broken Phone, and Re-installed onto a Copy Digitizer.  This of course can cause issues as heating to remove, then resealing, if not done in the most advanced factory setting, will diminish the Sharpness, Color, and lifespan of the LCD.

Copy Digitizers are Notorious for Not Fitting, or Not having the Same Bright Color as the OEM.


Some Common Tests to see if the Digitizer is Fake, is to do a water drop test.  If the Water Drop does not form a Perfect “Bead” of water, its a fake.  Same with Back Panels on the iPhone 4 and 4s.


There are many different ways for us to tell if an LCD is fake, but for the owner of the phone, its almost impossible.  The only real way is to place it next to a matching model phone and check colors.  The Phone on the Left is Original, the right is Fake.  See the color difference?

You May Ask, What does this have to do with us anyways?  Well, if you are on our page, you most likely need a iPhone Repair  parts supplier in China.
