If you search for an original display replacement for Redmi 5, you’re on the right web page. It is very easy to drop the phone and break the display, but it is equally hard to find the original display again. The markets are full of duplicate screens, but the joy of using the phone will be nowhere near to before. You can easily purchase a first copy display in the offline market, but you’ll notice the reduced brightness and super dull colors, and then you’ll feel like you’ve wasted your money.
On this page, we’ll try to provide a good deal of information regarding the Redmi 5 display so that you can understand all the concepts and then purchase the product. If you invest your money in the right product, you would enjoy lots of long-term benefits and stay away from all the hassles commonly faced by many customers.
All the screen replacements are not equal in quality.
You should know that all screen replacements are not equal, and you’ll have a tough time finding the original display online. Most shopkeepers sell duplicate screens, and you can easily notice the difference in their build quality, brightness, contrast, and touch screen smoothness. If you were using an original display and replace it with a duplicate one, you can clearly notice the difference. You don’t need to be a techie to grasp the difference because it is so obvious. The onscreen colors become very dull, and even on maximum brightness, the display stays dim, and the touch screen works stiffly.
The duplicate screens come from third-party manufacturers who make such products to cater to the needs of the masses. Lots of customers want low-priced products and don’t have if they have to compromise on the quality. The manufacturers are well aware of this tendency, and they’ve taken a shift towards manufacturing the lowest quality goods to attract more customers, which is what you get locally. So if you purchase a display locally and its quality utterly disappointed you, now you know why.
Do you also try to find the screens for the lowest price?
A majority of customers try to find the screens for the lowest possible price, and when they actually get the product, they realize their mistake. If you expect that you’ll get a brand new original product for a throwaway price, you are just daydreaming. You’ll get what you pay, and if you are not willing to spend money on quality, you’ll never get what you actually want to get after a broken display.
Customers often complain that a particular website sent them a duplicate display, but they don’t tell that they wanted it for the cheapest amount. There is no reason to expect the original Redmi 5 display for Rs 1200 when the original one costs Rs 2500. If you give fake assurances to yourself that you became so lucky and found a deal, you are fooling yourself. Indeed, display prices fluctuate slightly, but rock-bottom prices clearly indicate that the product is not worth purchasing.
What are the differences between an original and a first copy display?
There is a huge difference between an original and a first copy display because both screens target a different segment of customers. If you purchase a display for a low price, you shouldn’t compare it with the original display because you’ll find many differences. Some of them are :
- The original display is very bright, while the brightness of the duplicate display will be way too low.
- If you slide your finger over the edges of a duplicate glass and then the original glass, you can see the difference.
- The original glass is always thicker, while the duplicate glass is very flimsy.
- A duplicate touch screen glass is not curved from the sides when compared with the original.
- The first copy screen breaks so easily while the original one lasts really long.
- The duplicate touch screen lags a lot and doesn’t work as intended.
Please note that first copy screens are completely different from the original, and that’s why they go for such low prices. If you want to purchase an original one, you’ll never get it for a meager price. Even if you take a duplicate display in your hands, it feels so cheap and flimsy.

Common Customer Questions
Q: How much does it cost to replace a broken Redmi 5 display in India?
The price of a 100% original Redmi 5 display replacement is around Rs 2400-2600. If you buy a first copy screen replacement, then the combo costs about Rs 1100-1300 in India. You may have to pay additional repairing charges on top of the display’s price to a mechanic.
Q: If I purchase the first copy Redmi 5 display, will I get the same display quality?
First of all, the display we sell on this page is 100% original and not the first copy. The local market offers duplicate screens to the customers for low prices, and technicians promise customers that they will get 99% quality of the original. However, the truth is, a duplicate display offers around 40-50% display quality when you compare it with the original.
The 99% quality is a trick designed to convince the customers because you can’t do much once the installation is complete. Even if you complain that display quality is very bad, the technicians will brush aside and leave you with no choice. If you want to spend less money, then don’t be trapped in false advertising and always be ready for a compromised display.
Q: Is it good to replace the screen in the local market?
The option of replacing the Redmi 5 display in the local market is good if you don’t care about the display quality. If you are happy with the lowest quality as long as you can use the phone, then the option of repairing in the local market will be best for you. You can try to find the display at the lowest price, including installation. In case you want an original display, forget that you’ll find it locally.
Q: How can I assure the originality of the display myself?
Please note that a layman customer can’t go into technical details of a display replacement; however, you can easily recognize an original display with traditional methods. The original display will offer 100% original colors, brightness, and sharpness. The display looks very sturdy, and you can easily recognize the display quality because you’ve used your phone for a long time. Our screens are original, and we proudly offer a 30 days return period for all the customers.
On the other hand, when you test a duplicate screen, it feels very cheap, and the brightness levels will be very low, around 40% for the original, and even a newbie can tell that quality is very bad. You don’t need any technical skills to recognize the original display because the screen brightness is the biggest problem with duplicate screens. Even when the brightness slider is up to the highest level, the screen stays dim.
Q: Can I install the display myself at home?
It is possible to install the display at home but only if you are an expert. If you don’t know mobile repairing and want to do it for a trial purpose, it could have a wayward outcome. That’s why you should always replace the display with the supervision of an expert technician who has already replaced many screens before. The screen replacement is not tough, but still, you need some experience.
Q: How to verify the working condition of a new display?
We request all customers not to install the screen replacements directly. When you receive a product, first, you should test it by connecting to your phone’s motherboard in an open condition. To elaborate this, there is no need to assemble the display but test its functionality in open condition. It is how all the technicians test the new display before installation. When you are satisfied with the working condition of the new display, you can permanently install it on your phone.
