Screen Replacement with old Home Button

If I'm replacing the whole screen, if I just take the home button from the damage screen and put it in the new screen will everything be the same as in Touch ID wise. Will there be any difference?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You are correct, no difference and you'll keep the touch ID :) Just be gentle with the fragile flex cables and keep track of what screws go in each hole and power off phone and disconnect battery.

Update (08/20/2017)

Yes, and the cable that connects the home button and to the logic board that runs along the back of the back plate
