    I am not sure whether the screen is spoil. Should i get a replacement screen or any ways to confirm that it is the screen problem?

    It's hard to even tell what's going on there, but it looks like the lower right corner of your bottom screen is slightly cracked.

    it is only obvious when there is animation. If not it just lighter for example "home" is fine just that the color is much lighter

    What else do you think it is if you got it for a cheap price? It's a defective screen. Live with it or replace it.

    Sounds like ghosting or motion blur.

    It's an individual screen problem. Dude probably dropped it or something.

    Most likely it's the screen that's bad. If there had been liquid damage, there would be a slim chance the problem could be due to corrosion in the connector itself preventing some of the pins inside from making proper contact with the ribbon cable connector. But usually when the screen is light and washed out like that it's just due to a bad screen.
