I'm planning to buy a Raspberry Pi very soon. But I wanted to know, which display should I use for my Pi? 

The display should be less than 10 inches and should not use up any GPIO pins on the Pi. It should be compatible with both Raspberry Pi 3 and Raspberry Pi 4. Non-touch screen display would do. Please give me the model number of the same. 

Thanks for any response in advance. 😀

The Pi does have composite video out, but I've never wanted to use it because of low resolution. That would mean using HDMI. These displays seem to be readily available, in 3.5, 5 and 7 inch, maybe 10 also, but I don't have a favorite.

I do have an idea about HDMI connections. For the Pi 3, I'd get an adapter, just a little stubby thing.

HDMI to mini-HDMI for RPi 3

The Pi 3 just supports one display, so this kind of little stub seems fine to me.

HDMI to micro-HDMI for RPi 4

They are commonly sold in 2-packs because the Pi 4 can drive two displays, but the ports are so close together that you need a tiny cable on it in order for both to fit. Personally, I would just get the 2-pack in case you ever wanted to run in that mode or just to have a spare.

If you are planning on putting all this in an enclosure, the size of these adapters plus cables might be an issue.

Good luck! 😀 

In theory, theory and practice are the same.
In practice, they're different.
