But on more price-sensitive phones like this, they have to use an off-the-shelf LCD module designed for a regular phone. It pretty much has to be off-center to fit.

The off-centeredness has no effect whatever on the use of the phone. I don't even notice anymore. It's actually a benefit if you are right handed because you hold the phone in your right hand with your thumb on the side of the screen. The little extra room (in the margin) because the screen is off-centered means your thumb has more room and doesn't block the screen.
