According to the previous experience, the new iPhone launched at Sep.12th should be called “iPhone 7s”, but it came to us with a name “iPhone 8”. When we saw iPhone 8 at first glance, it looks just like the iPhone 7. Here we will compare the iPhone 8 LCD screen with iPhone 7 and test whether the screens can exchange.
As iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 have the same size display, the LCD screen sizes are almost the same.
So we can’t find the differences from the front but there are some small differences on the back. Refer to the picture, the buckle on the top of iPhone 7 is plastic, on the bottom is metal while the iPhone 8 is just the opposite.

Firstly, we install the iPhone 8 LCD screen in the iPhone 7, turn on the phone, it can light up.
Secondly, we test the screen touch function, there is no touch, no matter how crazy we touch it and the screen still doesn’t work.

When we install the iPhone 7 LCD screen in the iPhone 8 and turn on the phone, the phone is stuck at Apple Logo with a white screen.
To solve this problem, we force restart the iPhone 8:
Firstly, press and quickly release the Volume + button.
Secondly, press and quick release the Volume _ button.
The last, press and hold the side button until the Apple Logo appears.
Unfortunately, it is still stuck at the Apple Logo with the white screen.
