Looking at all three listings, the eBay and Amazon listings state that their parts are FOR the Samsung. The iFixit part appears TO BE the part and carries a lifetime warranty.

Just wanted to post an update for anyone who might be looking at ebay for this.

.

I purchased and installed the display assembly from this ebay listing: http://r.ebay.com/4sSHJI. The screen I received exactly matched the screen shown in the description pictures.

.

The new screen looks great and I feel like I just bought a new phone! Couldn't be happier!

.

Also, I want to give my thanks to iFixit for their excellent repair guide: Samsung Galaxy S4 Display Assembly Replacement

The difference is the quality and the grade.

I can't say much about iFixit replacement parts as I have never used them, but I presume that they are A grade original replacement parts.

When it comes to eBay and amazon you come across different grades and most of them are bootleg.

We have sold hundreds of iPhone and Samsung screens to factories in China which in turn refurbish them and sell them again on the market.

I hope this helps you if you have any more questions or want me to elaborate please feel free to ask.

Regards
