I had my s4 screen changed just recently and within two weeks it ended up cracking in my pocket. Furthermore, when the screen was initially changed it stopped working the same day. The store ended up changing it again, but then yet again another problem appeared after they "fixed" it. I was wondering if the screen and digitizer is OEM as they claim it is because it seems fake to me.

I know of a reputable phone store here in Wellington that buy screens of AliExpress when they do a screen replacement. They say its genuine Samsung but you never know when its from AliExpress or DHGate. 90% of the time they're fakes.

So, yes, your screen could very well be a fake.
