If you cracked your Mi 11x Pro 5G display or touchscreen digitizer glass, you’d need to shed a considerable amount of money. You can easily purchase an expensive flagship phone because of easy EMIs and other similar options. But when it comes to replacing a cracked display of a premium phone, you need to spend around 10k instantly, which can be difficult for many customers. Almost all premium phones consist of premium spare parts, so their repair costs are high. In case of screen replacements, you should be ready to spend around 30% of the phone’s price if you buy an original display.
You certainly don’t want to ruin everything on your phone after a broken display or touchscreen glass. If you purchase duplicate screens, that will create many issues, and you’ll surely give up on the phone. Many customers buy duplicate screens because of budget constraints. Still, finally, they either purchase an original display later (when the replaced duplicate display cracks again) or sell the phone to someone because they don’t feel satisfied while using it. To save a small amount, you should never compromise the quality.
How a duplicate display costs more than an original display?
If you buy a duplicate display replacement, you don’t get the desired display quality, but you must compromise on the quality. People choose alternative screen replacements because they can’t afford the originals, and to spare some cash, they purchase duplicate screens so they can at least use the phone. A duplicate display enables you to use your phone but increases the risk of forthcoming damage. After installing a duplicate display, the overall durability of your phone tanks, and the phone cracks very easily on the next drop.
Many customers who buy a duplicate display often report that they replace it three times a year. If you do the math and sum up all the repeated investments on duplicate screens, that would be well over the original display’s price, and that’s why a duplicate display costs more than an original display. You’ll not realize this easily because you pay money in parts, but if you do an honest calculation, you’ll get the point. You shouldn’t invest your money in local screen replacements unless necessary.
Why is the Mi 11x Pro 5G display so expensive?
Please note that flagship phones come with stunning screens, so customers buy them. If you buy a phone for Rs 40k, you will certainly expect an exceptional quality display, and Mi 11x Pro phone certainly stands up to the expectations. Everything is good unless you drop the phone and break the display or touchscreen digitizer glass. The display on this phone is not fragile by any means, and only harsh drops will invade the touch screen digitizer glass, which is understandable.
After damage, if you want to retain the original quality, you must buy another original AMOLED display which is expensive. When writing this page, the original display’s price is around 10k, which will not reduce in the lifetime, considering what we’ve seen before in such cases. The supply of original screens is always deficient; after some time, you’ll have a tough time finding the original display replacement in the market or the service center.
Some customers think that spare parts prices will also drop considerably as the phone becomes old, but that never happens. As soon as a phone gets older, the manufacturer ceases the production of new screens because they must focus on manufacturing newer models’ screens. That creates a shortage of old models’ original screens in the market, and prices increase further. So if you thought that you’d buy the original display for a throwaway price later, that is not going to happen.
