If the description says it is compatible with Pi 3, is this encompassing each Pi 3 generation? I have read many product descriptions saying that these screens and their cases are compatible with Pi 3 or NOT compatible with Pi 3B+, but those that say they work with Pi 3 are not confirming that they are compatible with the 3B+.
Just a bit of newbie frustration... Trying to learn the lingo while reading product descriptions lacking in concise info. Any help?

Thanks for getting back to me. I am actually not just looking at a case for the motherboard. I am specifically looking at TFT/Pi/Case combos similar to something like this:

Does this change any provided information or understanding of how to judge if a a Pi 3B+ would fit into this?
Thanks again. I appreciate the help.
Thank you! I really appreciated you sharing this experience:)LTolledo wrote: ↑Thu Jul 19, 2018 9:33 amHave one of those, fits the RPi3B+ just fine (just reconfirmed a while ago)
If RPi is not turned on, the set looks like an un-powered digital picture frame.
Tried it for a little while, then I changed my mind as I wanted to have better cooling for the SoC.
I use another case which expose the GPIO pins, used header extensions for the used only pins of the GPIO and mounted the 3.5" screen, and used a smallest length HDMI cable.
but most of the time I just use the 3.5" screen as a spare HDMI monitor (not enabling the touch function).
