Foggy screen after some using

Hi guys,

I have a problem with my girlfriend's iP 5C. After some time of using Facebook, Safari etc apps screen goes very bright and "foggy". Also some dark spots appears and I can see shadows of icons on the background. The problem occurs once a day but also it disappears randomly - either when she continues browsing web or she leaves phone locked on the couch. Phone was bought second-hand and I am not sure if display is original. There are photos in link below. Do you have any idea what it might me?

Bad quality screen. Only thing I can say is try reseating the front panel connectors for the front display assembly on the logic board upper half or replace the screen.

It's definitely LCD issue, typical burn-in.

There is a lot of copy quality screens on market. Some of them are very poor. It's also common if you don't have autolock set. It's very important to buy always best quality LCD. If you want to buy original - only refurbished is available.
