Not really unless you take it apart
? Why does it matter?

Apple will refuse to service the iPhone if parts were replaced. I had that happened with another used iPhone 4

Odds are its probably out of warranty anyways so it really doesnt matter also 99% of the time just by looking at an genius bar rep cant tell anyways if it was replaced unless its a low quality part

Easiest way for me to tell is to tap on screen with my fingernail or feel the midframe. you can tell the difference in sound and feel.

Look at mesh over receiver, it's usually different. Look at spot on screen where proximity sensor would be under, it can sometimes be more purple.
