With such a fast-paced life today, we are always in a hurry. During the rush hours of our lives, things often tend to slip out of our hands and break. It would be quite a terrible moment when we accidentally break the display or touch screen glass of the Realme X. This phone comes with a fantabulous Infinity Display, with no notch at all. If you broke the display, you now need a complete display replacement for your phone.
You will need to replace the complete Realme X display unit so that you can use your phone normally. When we say display unit, It means that you need to replace the display and touch screen glass altogether.
We all drop things; it’s a part of our nature as human beings. Things tend to slip out of our hands by mistake, and no one can deny the fact that they haven’t dropped and broke something by accident at least once in their life. Smartphones are no exception here. These devices are very compact, and because of that, they easily slip out of our hands. Still, there is nothing to worry and you can buy a new screen replacement for Realme X and fix the problems very easily.
Can I buy an original display replacement from the local market?
The replacements for any broken display are quite readily available in the market. However, you should be very cautious when selecting the replacement option. There are tons of duplicate display products out there in the market at super cheap prices. These cheap prices might make you think that you just got an excellent deal, but the truth is that it is going to be very troublesome in the long run.
Please note that you can’t replace an Original display with any subpar quality product and expect that everything is going to run smoothly as before. The market is filled up with low-quality products that are specially crafted for customers looking for low prices. The Realme X is equipped with an AMOLED display and any ordinary screen replacement will not give render the desired display quality.
What are the drawbacks of duplicate screen replacements?
If you go to the local market to get a display for Realme X, often you will find shopkeepers saying that TFT display is available and in-display fingerprint will no longer work after replacement. It is because that display is not the AMOLED quality display but It is a cheap quality TFT display which is much cheaper in price but the quality is also equally bad.
Many people complain that after buying a display replacement, the fingerprint scanner is no longer working. It is very normal because the new display is not having the support for an in-display fingerprint scanner so you lost the most attractive feature of the phone. Apart from that, the proximity sensor will also stop working because the sensor is also located underneath the display, and in a duplicate screen replacement, there is no provision for the proximity sensor.
So If you purchase a duplicate TFT display, you will face these issues :
- The display quality will reduce greatly by more than 60% because of the TFT display (The Original display is AMOLED).
- The color reproduction and smoothness of duplicate TFT display are nowhere near to the original display.
- You will have the sacrifice the joy of using the In-Display fingerprint scanner.
- During calls, the proximity sensor will no longer work and the screen may turn off/on abruptly.
- The overall experience of using the phone will degrade and you’ll rush to sell the phone in no time.
Why should I get a Complete Combo Replacement?
It often confuses many people who happen to have a broken Realme X Display, that whether or not they should get a complete combo replacement. People assume that it’s just a mere crack on the glass and can be easily replaced with another glass. Someone who does not have enough experience in the mobile industry, much like most common men out there, might think it can be easily pulled off; however, it is not as easy as you think.
The display of a smartphone is a complicated piece of machinery and is required to function well so that the entire device functions smoothly. The Touch Screen Glass and the display are glued together, making it exceedingly difficult to separate them. If you try to separate them by any means, It is not often successful, and if by chance you do somehow separate them, even after the replacement, you would still have a degraded display quality. After all, if you still start with the separation procedure, there are very high chances of damaging the display and the touch screen glass altogether.
Over the years, we have learned that any kind of refurbished or alternative cheap solutions can never meet the quality expectations. Therefore, we don’t suggest you go for cheap solutions. If you do, then be prepared for a big compromise in the quality. We truly understand that everyone has a different budget for screen replacement and nonetheless, many people will buy the duplicate screens but you’ve been warned.
Why do mechanics in the local markets suggest only glass replacement?
Frankly, Only Glass Replacement will always benefit a mechanic much more than it can potentially help you, the customer. The only glass replacement is, without a doubt, a multimillion industry, and it is entirely built on your money.
For any local mechanic, this is an excellent chance to earn money quickly. He has nothing to risk at all. However, your phone’s quality is at high risk. Only Glass Replacement costs very less, and this is why many people prefer it over Combo Replacement. You should know that you are putting your phone’s screen quality, and all functionality is at risk.
The only glass used by mechanics costs them less than Rs 100 and they charge insane amounts for the replacements. The only glass replacement is equivalent to a gamble. You should consider yourself lucky if the only glass replacement succeeds because there are high chances that you might end up losing your money and still have a broken display. The mechanic offers no guarantee on this procedure, and this way, he earns his share in any case.
Should I buy original or duplicate display products?
The cost of a product matters the most to any customer. Duplicate display products cost less because they are made of extremely cheap quality material. The Original display products are relatively costlier because the quality of the material is far better. The cheap material used to make these duplicate displays is called TFT. They barely resemble some 40% to the original display product when it comes to quality.
All these first-hand duplicate display products are called OG, 99% quality, and the first copy in the local markets so that the customers can be conned. These duplicate products look very similar to the original, but when quality is discussed, there is a huge difference. The duplicate screens will create lots of usability issues and degraded brightness, contrast, and poor color distribution are prevalent.
