1. Open Module parts: iPhone 7 Flex cable/Glass Lens/Frame/Backlight
2. Valuable Parts of old LCD: Gravity sensor flex cable of Backlight/ Driver IC/ Good LCD

The compatibility of Display Drive, which may lead to functionality unstable, No display and touch function after your iPhone upgrades to the newest version, and the problems will not appear at once until you used one to two weeks.

There are no free lunches in life, if you get cheap spare parts, then you need to take higher risk.


1. If Driver Module is not original, the display resolution will be different, LCD Display will also have color distortions.
2. The glass lens and frame are produced by open mold, it may appear installation problems.

All in all, No matter it is available for refurbishing iPhone 7, we need to have the right attitude, just believe: you get what you pay for, the higher the price, the better the quality.
