    Okay .. now I have quite an idea, maybe quite a silly idea but let´s see

    Is it possible for us to replace iPod touch 4g LCD with iPhone 4 LCD?

    Since iPhone 4 get IPS panel while our beloved iPod touch (unfairly) get crappy TN panels. While they share same resolution and retina display spec, it´s still unbearabale to look at your iPod touch at some angles

    The washout and contrast reduction just so annoying on iPod touch 4g, so is it possible? due to iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4 share the same resolution?

    Anyone doing it yet? or I could search the tutorial on youtube, google? I haven´t found one

    On the fence
    Same resolution, but not the same thickness or glass. The LCD is fused to the front glass, so you would be required to use the iPhone 4 glass, which doesn't appear that it would fit. IPS displays also tend to be thicker.

    I think they are not compatible with each other.
