iPhone 5 LCD Screen Assembly - Black - OEM
Everyone knows that a damaged screen can ruin an iPhone. But the black version of the iPhone 5G LCD touch screen digitizer assembly and frame lets you replace panels that have cracked or somehow come a cropper as a result of a range of common faults. Buying it is the affordable alternative to replacing your entire fifth-gen iPhone handset.
Real Replacement Retina Display Ramblings
The four inch display of the iPhone 5 is one of its biggest selling points, but it can all too easily succumb to bumps and scrapes, ending up as an unusable mess. For those with the black edition of Apple’s flagship phone, this iPhone 5G LCD touch screen digitizer assembly and frame will let you ditch your old display and replace it with a fresh unit that will make it feel like a brand new handset.
Choosing this replacement component will allow you to remove the phone’s original screen and carefully install the new assembly by following detailed instructions.
Go Genuine or Go Home
One big mistake you can make when attempting to repair your iPhone 5 is to opt for an off-brand screen that is not sanctioned by Apple and could therefore cause problems with your device. Thankfully this product features a genuine original LCD panel that is produced by the original manufacturer itself, meaning you can be assured of its quality and compatibility. The glass and frame of this LCD unit are high quality compatible parts that have the same coating as the original LCD to avoid fingerprints and scratches.
Since this is a Retina Display LCD panel it measures four inches across the diagonal and has a resolution of 1136x640, which delivers crystal clear imaging performance and means that you are getting exactly the same experience from this replacement as you did from the original iPhone 5 screen.
The glass frontage comes from an aftermarket firm, but this is not an issue thanks to the fact that it is made using Gorilla Glass, which has become the industry standard for smartphone display protection. It is a durable, tactile material that easily accommodates the needs of the average iPhone 5 user and should minimise the potential for damage while also being easy to clean and maintain.
Tooled Up for the Job At Hand
Add the iPhone 5G LCD touch screen digitizer assembly and frame to your basket and you will also receive a toolkit as part of your order so that you can get under the skin of your Apple handset and install the replacement display without too much hassle. This kit includes lever mechanisms and suction cups to help with the removal of the old, faulty or damaged screen, making it an essential purchase since you can do very little of this using every day DIY tools
It is important to point out that even with the right tools, you should still take the time to read a guide to help with iPhone 5 screen replacement, since there are some steps that, should you get them wrong, could leave your phone in worse shape than it was before. Assuming you follow the instructions correctly, you should have a fully working iPhone 5 and considerably more cash in your pocket than if you had paid for repairs elsewhere.

Parts Quality Explained – OEM
OEM stands for “Original Equipment Manufacturer” there are many discriptions online of what this means, so we want to explain what it means to iParts4u.
The term OEM means the same build quality as an original manufactured part, using the same materials and specifications of the original part.
OEM is used when describing parts that are new, used or refurbished. The condition of any product will be in the description.
OEM products can sometimes be made up of several parts, these would be assembled by a third party factory, in some cases the consumables used in the production of these parts may differ.
All parts go through strict testing procedures to ensure the quality of the part, however these testing procedures may differ from that of the original manufacturers procedures.
Any parts supplied as OEM will not have any quality loss or loss of functions and will be covered under our extensive warranty.
OEM Parts will not carry the original logos or branding as to avoid the additional cost of the brand value of the original part. It is more likely that an OEM cost, will be associated with the actual cost of producing the product, rather than due to the expense of marketing the entire brand and the values that the brand supports.
iParts4u is not associated with the devices manufacturer and in many cases will not source the parts directly from the manufacturer, the manufacturer is also not involved with the sales or testing of any product.
