Fake digitizer, bought from Amazon! I want an OEM part?
Hi all, I followed the instruction here on ifixit.com and I can tell you that you guys are doing an amazing job. After trying to replace he digitizer for the first time I rushed the LCD removal a little bit, resulted in a cracked LCD. I ordered another one and went through complete tear down here and finally my iPad is fixed.
But, when I tested a few apps like Paper by 53, Adobe Photoshop and Sketch (designing apps) I figured out that I'm not able to draw a single straight line on this digitizer. Digitizer would be irresponsive even in some games, where you have to "pick up" one object and slide it to the other part of the screen it just loses it. Same happens when you're moving your finger across the screen it doesn't have a sleek touch, like the original one, instead makes your finger "stuck" on the glass, not to mention using the stylos pen. That's how I found out that my digitizer which came from Amazon is far from being an OEM part. Also the screen seems kind of yellowish compared to the original one and the home button fell in after the installation. Although I don't have any problems with the home button I'd replace this fake screen as soon as possible cause it's annoying.
I'm using my iPad mini Retina for drawing and sketching, since I'm working in graphic design, but now I can't find no use for it except for reading.
Please if you guys let me know where could I order an original quality digitizer..if that's even possible?
I saw the digitizer kit they're offering here, but who can guarantee the quality except the people who actually tried it?
I'd really appreciate it.
