The screen works fine.
Just wanted to mention a few things. First of all the screen is not original genuine as it is mentioned in the description. I mean you don't need to be a professional to tell that apart. It's obvious that it is not. It lacks the three guide lights at the bottom of the screen for the soft buttons which pretty much means that you're gonna have to take the original lights off of your cracked screen. Not too difficult, but takes some time.
Second of all I noticed that my original screen had black duct tape around the edges and I couldn't figure out why it was there at first, but as it turned out later it was there for a reason. When I put my new screen in and assembled it completely I could notice that some light is shining out of the edges of the screen, so that's the reason for the black tape! Recommend putting some black tape on your new screen. Not a big deal if you don't but It can be quite annoying when looking at your screen in the dark and also seeing that some light is coming out of the edges. Also, recommend to have double sided sticky tape to hand when putting your screen in its frame, because if you don't it wont be sealed with the frame properly letting some light shine through the edges (perhaps another reason why that light is shinning through).
Lastly, as I said earlier the screen itself is fine and definitely better than a cracked one. However due to so many niggles could not give more than three stars.
