Is my after market screen causing text refresh in my news apps to slow

I recently shattered the original screen on my iPhone 6 (it was a choice between my falling on the ground at 7 months pregnant or letting go of the phone to catch still in one piece, phone not so much). I brought it to a place called "computer hut," and they replaced the screen. My friend warned me to check that my phone was fully functional, including the front camera, checked as much as I could in the shop without seeming ungrateful for the repair.

My phone seems mostly functional except for two things which I wonder if either or both are a result of the new screen:

1. In my NYTIMES app when I scroll down to continue reading articles the text is either very slow to appear or I have to leave the app and return in order to see the next paragraphs of text. I had a phone call with the folks at nytimes and we cleared the cache and reinstalled the app. The problem still persists.

2. If I want to tap the time clock to scroll immediately to the top of the page this quick stroke seems to work intermittently. I had to touch the time about 5 times until it registered.

Both problems to me would seem more of a memory issue than a screen issue. However my phone had no indication of slowing down prior to the screen repair and now 3 days after screen replacement it is showing signs of lag.

You could have a poor quality aftermarket screen. That would certainly be the first thing to check. However, it sounds like the phone had a big impact and that could have caused issues as well.

I would go back tot he shop and have them try another screen. It may solve the issue outright and they should normally stand behind their work. If another screen behaves the exact same way, while it may still be screen related (the shop may have received a bad batch), it's may be a logic board issue. Another way to isolate the screen as faulty is to put back the original cracked screen and see how it responds.
