You just want to add "genuine" into your ebay search. Can't really go wrong then.

They won't actually be genuine though and if they are they'll be too dear. I've had 20 iPhone 4/4S screen that have been great and others that have fit like dog turd.

If a power seller says it's genuine it'll likely be genuine.

Had one yesterday that fit like crap, touching on some edges then leaving a gap on some. Also find they must be thicker or something because the home button tends to sit really low on some of them.

Is there any way to test the screen without fitting them? Had one tonight, spent 30 mins fitting it to find it was very lightly flickering, I normally only keep one of each screen in so didn't have another, put the original broken one back on and that was fine. Now got to order another in but won't be till the weekend = annoyed customer. Also, ebay seller is saying they won't accept a return without the original shipping label or something.

I usually buy them in and keep them in the cupboard till I need them which can sometimes be a few weeks meaning I can no longer return them when I find come to fit them and out they're faulty.

Just the odd job but lately been doing near enough one a day. Doubt anyone would be willing to pay 80 for a gen screen plus the fitting fee on top. I'm fully aware people get what they pay for but even paying 40 they expect it to be spot on.
