Has the phone been repaired before (e.g screen replaced)?

Usually for screen going cloudy it's either long screw damage (When the longer screw out of the 3 for the metal plate covering the front screen cables are used on one of the lower two screw holes) or a damaged LCD ribbon cable / connector / or faulty screen (usually due to physical damage).

The last time I had this issue with the screen going cloudy it was due to a faulty screen (LCD connection was bad).
