Default How to know if AMOLED is fake or real

Hi, the AMOLED screen of my S4 broke. Its not a build defect but due to my stupidity. I dropped it.

Im scouting around and official samsung store is charging me 400 USD to replace it while other cellphone stores say they have an original one for 250 USD. Is there a way to find out if it is indeed the real original AMOLED display that samsung has.

I havent had it replaced yet so side by side comparison wont work. Im sure id have to pay once they attach it.

Amoled not on the screen. If ur screen broke it's only screen and touchscreen panel will broke. Not the Amoled. Amoled is on black surface behind the gorilla glass. Amoled doesn't need back light. The original doesn't make your phone better than normal Amoled. As long as that is Amoled. Not Lcd that need backlight to work.
