Default [Q] Where is Internal Storage?

hi,

i broke my phone it is completely dead. i need to figure out a way to pull off data from the internal storage. i have a replacement phone coming in today and was wondering where the internal storage in located. i have dismantled the broken phone and if possible will swap internals so i can pull off the data i need. so can someone tell me where the internal storage is located?

Please and thank you!

If i remember rightly from a thread i glanced at a while ago, the note 3 internal memory is hard-wired (soldered) on the board...
Current:

Galaxy Note 3 N9005 - Running MultiX with 360DPI!
Apple iPad 4th Gen - Jailbroke of course!
Samsung Galaxy Gear - Running null ROM!

Wow. You are adventurous. But no. The flash memory is ON the board. You would have to desolder and resolder it. Which is basically impossible on the scales that these devices are built. I don't think you can get to that data anymore....

EDIT: Unless your board is fine, in which case, I guess you could do a swap. But there is a more than good chance of destroying your new phone as well.
