Ok. I ordered a screen from eBay yesterday. I'll post on here how it goes.

In my case turning the rubber seal around fixed it on 2 screens.

You can check the lg website for Portugal. They will link to spareslg.com for OFFICIAL parts. So there are some global websites that will sell you OEM spare part. They are in my region but for what I see they ship worldwide.

On ebay you get some good deals and others not so good

So here is another update. I have put away my broken N4 and used HTC Amaze 4G for quite a while. Recently Amaze began to have issues with touch screen until part of it stopped working all together.
Figured I would give ebay another try. Seller is wholesalegadgetfix, item number 151206512431. Item is listed as OEM, but when I asked the seller they weren't sure. Whatever, placed an ordered and received it today.

First of all, the unit looked OEM-ish. Synaptics MC was clearly labeled and its ribbon cable was stamped with few numbers and Rev 1.1 Display ribbon cable had markings with numbers that are similar to updated actual OEM item.
Overall, markings look OEM, but not necesarly in right place. Frame itself is OEM. Tried to test the unit before assembly but it was almost impossible, therefore, I proceeded with the install.
Right off the bad, no issues with touchscreen like previous ebay unit had, at least not yet *fingers crossed*. Display quality looks good, although I don't remember what original looked like.
One bad thing about it. There is slight light-bleeding at the bottom left where back button is. It's not terrible, but I imagine it won't be a big issues with translucent bar. After-all, this is my best phone option as of now.

Sorry for bumping an old thread.
