Yeah, but at less than a penny a piece, how can you go wrong?
If this post appears in the wrong forums category, my apologies.

Anything is usable but it is case of working out how to do that :)

The screen will be controlled by the computer chip on the the phone it was designed for. You will have to try to find out the specs for the screen ( what chip it has on board to drive it and what the pin out is)

The most common little screen everyone uses for these DYI projects is the 240 x 320 ili9341 screen and it was originally designed and build for a Nokia phone screen just someone found the specs so could work out how to use it.

They are cheap for a reason - the driver chip may well be completely undocumented,
and not much use other than... in a razr phone !

Look here for an long interesting read on what's involved:

There are LCDs for a few dollars that have ready made libraries to work with that you can use.
Android app - Raspi Card Imager - download and image SD cards - No PC required !
