Can I take out my phone'd hard drive?

Is it possible that I can open my phone up, take out the hard drive or whatever an wherever all te pictures and such are stored and put it in a different phone? Only because my phone now is totally trashed and unfixable, and please don't tell me other wise because I've tried everything else and have spent $150 already trying other things.

jmtalhelm, sorry to tell you but you can not. There is not hard drive or similar storage that can be replaced. All files are stored on NAND flash memory which requires the processor as well as other parts on the logic board to be decrypted and accessed. The only slight glimmer of hope would be by contacting professional service that have the equipment to do so. The cost for those service is pretty high.
