Redmi Note 7 Pro is an extremely popular handset bought by masses. The touch screen glass of Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 protection, but It does break If you drop it on the floor. The gorilla glass always protects the phone from the minor drops, but It can’t withstand the falls when the screen hits the floor directly.
Lots of customers are confused about the words, screen, LCD, touch screen, and glass. Some people tell us that they want to change the only screen, and their display is fine; however, screen and display refer to the same thing. Lots of customers have no idea what they are talking about, and they tend to confuse the things themselves. It is a great idea to expand your knowledge, but all the information on the web is not accurate as many customers write anything without having any knowledge.
What is the difference between Screen, LCD, Touch Screen, and Glass?
Just for your information, the screen, display, and LCD are essentially the same thing. The word Screen means a surface where pictures can be projected for viewing, and this is what the word LCD means. The touch screen is a plastic-type layer that is fused with the display itself. In some mobile phones, the touch screen digitizer is fused in the glass, but in Redmi Note 7 Pro, the touch screen digitizer is layered on display itself. Essentially, LCD or Screen or Display is the same thing.
The second thing is the touch screen glass, which is JUST a glass. This glass is pasted on display using a LOCA sheet. The word LOCA stands for Liquid Optical Clear adhesive. So If we talk about Redmi Note 7 Pro combo, It has two things, the display, and the touch screen glass. So you don’t need to confuse yourself any further. Just remember that there are two things in a combo (or a folder), the display and the glass.
Now when you drop the phone, you will either damage the display or the touch screen glass. In some cases, both parts can demolish altogether when the damage is intensive. It also doesn’t matter if the display is broken or the touch screen glass is scratched because you will always need to replace the complete combo.
Why do mechanics advise me to change only the touch screen glass?
- Mechanics use a very cheap quality glass to replace the original glass, which is very fragile.
- The touch screen glass is no longer a Gorilla Glass 5 but a cheap Chinese glass.
- It is very common to see white spots, dust particles, and other flaws inside the display.
- The brightness reduces to a great extent, and the tint of the display turns yellowish.
- The touch screen smoothness may not be the same as before.
- You may have a hard time If you make use of touch screen gestures or multitouch features.
Why do I get the original display for a low price in the local market?
It is your illusion that you are getting the 100% original combo for a low price while, in reality, you are buying the first copy for a low price. The vendors in the local market are dealing in first copies, which are not original and coming from third-party manufacturers. You can’t expect the same build quality, colors, and brightness from these screens. Local shopkeepers market such products as original because customers are not able to differentiate just by looking at the product.
They quote a low price, the customer is ready to repair, and they install the first copy in the customer’s phone. After display replacement, some customers do complain that quality is looking very bad, but shopkeepers say that It is original. So essentially, when you are paying 50% of the actual amount and feeling happy that you found a fantastic deal, you are being duped into a first copy display. In some other cases, they will place a refurbished second-hand display on your phone and still charge you full money.
Always keep in mind that Redmi Note 7 Pro original display is not cheap but it is worth the price. The quality is simply awesome and you won’t even realize If you’ve replaced the display before. If you are paying the full price of the original display and getting a counterfeit product, your money is going down the drain. If you are buying the first copy willingly, that’s perfectly fine but we are not into that business.
