Samsung S5 vs S5 mini screen


Novice Member
I know this is a strange question.
Has anybody ever tried to plug a samsung S5 (5") screen into a S5 mini (4.5")?
Are the screen compatible? I know the resolution is different.

I'm repairing an samsung S5 min to retrieve some stuff off it.
As far as I know the only thing wrong is that screen is totally dead.
I wanted to check the phone itself is still functioning before deciding to buy a new screen.
I have a spare samsung s5 (5") screen and wondered if it would work so I tried it, but nothing happened. Should it have worked?

I don't think this would work bud. The screens have different power requirements, different resolutions and different graphics chips to drive the displays.
