Most reliable replacement parts?
Hey, this is my first time posting in iMore (I post over at wpcentral) and I am new to the whole iPhone things, so sorry if I'm asking something that is well known.
My aunt gave me her old 4S after her stepdaughter dropped it a few too many times and busted the LCD. I just happened to be looking for an upgrade from my Lumia 521 and am not too nitpicky about phone OS (except android, not my cup of tea). I need to replace the LCD/Digitizer and just got burned on a purchase for an HTC 8x assembly (replaced LCD/digitizer and the digitizer doesn't follow directions very well) so I thought it'd be wise to ask around before buying from some random repair parts place off eBay. I've seen a few LCD/Digitizer combos on amazon for around $25, but I don't want to buy a screen that is more likely to crack if I drop it if an OEM part is only $30-$40 more. I will, however, sacrifice the quality if an OEM part goes for around $80+ on average. The replacement part may be my only expense for this phone but I'm kind of cheap, so yeah.
Any help is much appreciated, thank you!
