Are you going to repair your Huawei device? When choosing spare parts, price is often the main factor. However, it is not always a happy choice.
When deciding whether to repair genuine displays of a given brand or to use components from OEMs (third parties), price is often a key factor in deciding. In most cases, this is lower for parts from OEMs. However, if the damaged device is a Huawei mobile phone, the situation is exactly the opposite. However, this is not the only reason why we recommend choosing genuine parts for this brand of equipment.
The original LCD display for Huawei P30 Lite costs € 69.98 with VAT. However, the package also includes a handset, fingerprint reader, vibrating motor, new frame, battery, and many other smaller parts. The price of the OEM display is "only" € 36.96, but nothing is included in this price except the display itself. After purchasing the remaining parts and the necessary accessories, which you will receive with the purchase of the original, the price climbs to approximately € 51.84. In addition, this does not include the side frame, which is not even available for OEM components.
Although perhaps a little surprising, the price is the first and really important reason to choose original parts.
When you buy parts and components from OEMs, in most cases you have only a minimal quality guarantee. A possible complaint or claim is very lengthy, complex, and often does not lead to the desired result. However, if you choose the original Huawei LCD display, you can rely on a proven brand and local availability, thanks to which any communication will be much easier and often more transparent.
Price or quality are great advantages for which we recommend choosing the original LCD display when repairing a Huawei mobile phone. The higher complexity of the replacement itself also speaks to the detriment of components from OEM manufacturers. This can also mean several times longer duration of the exchange as well as a higher risk associated with the exchange. This is because the probability of damaging components that are located in the centre frame, for example, is significantly higher.

The process of such an exchange is possible, for example, for models:
Note: For smartphones with a purchase price ranging from approximately € 60 to € 100, we recommend that you consider purchasing a new device.
The current trend seems to be to work on a folding mobile phone. Samsung launched the first model with the Galaxy Fold in this category.
