Making an external camera for smartphone? Answered

Hi, everyone. My smartphone's camera is really bad and i wanted to change it but when I thought about the risks i changed my mind. Then i got an idea, which is to make an external mini usb camera for my phone from another phone's camera. I searched the internet but there is no results (I found some videos where they use a webcam for this but I am no sure if it is the same thing) . So, is it even possible?

Thousands of times cheaper to buy a point and shoot camera and put it in you pocket.

You might want to think about an using eyefi card, You take the sd card out of the camera and replace it with an eyefi card. it will then send the photos straight to your phone.

That may not be possible owing to how the millions of three or four color grouped pixels are parallel scanned, let alone the scan rate and per-processing formats used to achieve a picture that quite possibly is too fine a resolution to be adequately imaged on that "really bad" smartphone limited LCD.
After all there is no sense in making the LCD resolution any better then the camera !
