Better quality screen
#11
The screen used on Zero/CM3 is not GBA compatible.

About the link you posted, here is a better view of the ribbon cable : https://funnyplaying.com/collections/gam...oducts/gba

For the screen specs : https://funnyplaying.com/collections/gam...ch-ips-lcd
3.19in
480x360x24bits
MIPI interface

Not sure there is any possibility to use this one :S

We have looked at that LCD, but not quite for the same reason.

As Porcinus mentioned, that kit uses a MIPI DSI LCD. It also comes with that ribbon cable that adapts it from the signals that the GBA would send to the MIPI DSI spec. It's no simple matter, and it's VERY specific to the GBA. It would not work on the Freeplay Zero or CM3.

Honestly, I have been looking for a better screen for a hell a lot of time, however I could not find one.

We have, too, Armisael! There is a nicer looking IPS screen that's 2.8". We've considered making an adapter for that one. It would be a fair bit smaller viewable area, but the angles are nicer. I wonder if anyone would want that.

I might be interested in something like that. What is the resolution of the smaller screen?

It's the same: 320x240.

We are also evaluating a new 640x480 3.5" LCD that we have recently found.  The problem is that it uses a different technology, so it would require a new circuit board design.  It would not work with the current design.

That would be an awesome upgrade for a future version, a shame I won’t be able to add it to my unit though.

This must be the screen used for the new zero model, I assume? So there’s no way to retrofit this screen into a cm3 build?

Both are true.  It's the Freeplay Zero LCD, and there's no real way to retrofit it to the old models.
