Can I install the iPhone 7 LCD screen in the iPhone 8 to repair it?

As the iPhone 8 LCD screen is very expensive now, can I use an iPhone 7 LCD screen to replace it to save money? Anyone had tested about this? Thank you!

So is it possible to replace both the case and the screen from iPhone7 with the iPhone8's guts?

I'm a technician and remembering some of the connectors I believe not, because 1 iPhone 8 back plate is made of glass not your average aluminum. Weird right. As the iPhone 7 is Aluminum there for there's a slight difference in the size of the LCD by milometers actually.


iPhone 8 - 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm (5.45 x 2.65 x 0.29 in) and 148g (5.22 oz)

iPhone 7 - 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm (5.44 x 2.64 x 0.28 in) and 138g (4.87 oz)
