What is the meaning of a Realme 6i Display Combo?
A combo is an abbreviation for combination, composed of different yet interlinked products. The Realme 6i display comprises the IPS display and touch screen glass, and we call it a Combo. Some people also call the combo as a Folder, and it is a combination of both parts (display and touch screen).
The display and touch screen are two separate components, and mobile phone screen manufacturers combine both products into one by using Liquid Optical Clear Adhesive. This adhesive is optically clear, and even when the display merges with the glass, you won’t realize that. But when you try to take out the broken touch screen glass, the display will also pop out because it is attached to the glass. For this reason, it is not advisable to replace the part individually. If you wonder why the combo is a preferred solution, here is why :
- The combo is very durable and provides a wonderful quality display, which is not possible with individual parts.
- You get better screen quality because dust and other impurities can’t make their way between the display and glass.
- The touch screen layer merges with the display, so even if the glass breaks, the touch screen won’t stop working.
- In most cases of accidental damage, you can continue to use the phone for some time.
A few years back, as soon as you dropped the phone, the touch screen will stop working completely. That was because the touch screen functionality was fused with the glass, but now it is fused on the display layer. That’s why all modern mobile phone’s touch screen continues to work after damage.
What is the difference between the first copy and the original display?
A first copy is a low-quality version of the original display product, and therefore it will always cost less than the original. These duplicate display costs less because the material used to make it is of poor quality. You might have observed that duplicate screen breaks easily while the original one lasts long. The combo which comes from the OEM manufacturer is the original product, and third-party manufactured products are duplicate ones.
The local shopkeepers market the duplicate products are first copies, and such products provide the worst quality experience. When purchasing a complete combo, always ask for the combo which comes from the OEM manufacturer. The original Realme 6i display also comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, and it is exactly what we sell on Touch LCD Baba. Here are the major differences between the original and duplicate product :
- The quality of duplicate touch screen glass is terrible, and that breaks easily while the original comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
- The overall color reproduction of duplicate display is nearly 40% of the original, and that’s a massive drop.
- If you try to use the phone in the direct sunlight, because of poor brightness, you can’t see anything on the duplicate display while no issues will appear in the original.
- For the customers who play games, the duplicate touch screen doesn’t support multi-touch while the original one does.
- You’ll have to replace the duplicate display nearly 3 times a year, while one original display will last much longer.
The original screen is expensive, while the duplicate one is always much cheaper. The glass used in the original display is the actual Gorilla Glass 3, and that’s why it is so durable, smooth, and perfect. A duplicate product might look exactly like the original, but it does not have the same standards of quality. Therefore, don’t be surprised when you get a Realme 6i display for a low price because you are getting a counterfeit product. So you always get what you pay for.
What are the disadvantages of Only Glass Replacement?
Many customers prefer only glass replacement because they want to reuse the same display and save money. It is a much cheaper and thriving option in the local market, so people often choose this over complete combo replacement to save some bucks. They are unaware of the hazardous nature of this method. The glass replacement involves the replacement of only the top layer of glass, which seems more straightforward but comprises a lot more risk and effort than you think.
The Realme 6i display and the touch screen glass are stuck together tightly using glue, which makes them come out as one unit rather than two. Now to replace only the touch screen glass, you need to separate these two parts, and this is risky for your phone. If the procedure is not done correctly, it can damage both the parts. This method is rarely successful; it also makes you risk the entire working of your phone.
If you are lucky enough and somehow get the display replaced successfully, then also you will not have the functionality and display quality as before. The only glass replacement costs much less than the combo replacement only because it replaces only the top layer of touch screen glass.
If you think you are saving money by choosing this option, you should know that it would cost you much more than the combo replacement in the long run. This method does not last long and the glass breaks again in no time. Your display will malfunction, leading you to get another display replacement, eventually adding up to the cost and making it more expensive than the onetime original display replacement.
