Is this not the cutest, little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 3.5" display with 480x320 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay so it is slightly larger than the Raspberry Pi board, which is perfect to cover it. The plate uses a high-speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video, etc. Best of all it plugs right on top nicely covering the Raspberry Pi board. Single power from Raspberry Pi is sufficient to operate the screen. As it uses the SPI and Power pin from Raspberry Pi's GPIO, it is nicely stacked on the Rpi board. We also carry the perfect case/enclosure for Raspberry Pi 3B/3B+ and also 4B to be used with this LCD.
check this video out where we assemble the Raspberry Pi 3B+ and the LCD enclosed with the case.
And here is the LCD in action:
Note: The graphic can only be displayed through HDMI or this Touch Screen LCD.
We have tested and verified this touch screen LCD with:
Yet, it should be working perfectly with:
Note: Do remember to install the driver for graphic and also touch screen controller :)

Check out the calibration process:
This LCD Module need install driver first:
2. Open terminal(SSH) and install the driver on Raspberry Pi: (tested on Raspberry Pi 3B+,3B,2B,2B+,1B,ZERO)
Run these commands in terminal:
sudo rm -rf LCD-show
git clone https://github.com/goodtft/LCD-show.git
chmod -R 755 LCD-show
Wait a few minutes, after reboot, the graphic will appears on touch screen LCD.
Touch screen calibration:
This LCD can be calibrated using a program called xinput_calibrator. Install it with the commands:
sudo dpkg -i -B xinput-calibrator_0.7.5-1_armhf.deb
Click the Menu (Raspberry Pi Logo) button on the task bar, choose Preference -> Calibrate Touchscreen.
Finish the touch calibration following the prompts. Maybe rebooting is required to make calibration active.
You can create a 99-calibration.conf file to save the touch parameters (not necessary if file exists).
