Install a 4S camera in a 4?

I have the iPhone 4 as it is

I seen the 4S and there is only one thing that impressed me: Siri

A global phone is useless to me, I do not travel to Euroupe and such

Basically it is a iPad 2 with a 3.5'' screen to me

Bearing in mind my point and shoot gave out in a year in a half(guess that's what I get for buying a 80.00 camera;), never again)

Ok, let's get back on track

A world phone is kinda useless to me, i'd buy a PREPAID phone and unlock it before I go and get a "el-cheapo" sim, roaming fees are crazy!

Would I be better off getting a 4S or try my luck at fitting the camera from a 4S in a 4?

Is this a good question?

It is too early to tell if the parts are compatible. Wait for a teardown (most likely the end of this week or next from ifixit). From my experience with apple components, they are likely to be incompatible from a hardware standpoint. And from a software standpoint, the ip4 will not be able to support the new hardware.

it is possible, just not worth doing and it isn't something you could do unless you were well... Apple
