First bottleneck will be speed drop.Impressive speed drop. In modern phones, like S4 or "beloved" Iphone, very important thing is electronics. I won't dive in to IT and electronics Kamasutra explanation style, I just say - that you can't plug CPU on 4pins and expect SuperDuperMegaQuadCorespeed.

So you just have to solder modules to get best speed.

Lets take a look at CPU with pins, for example :
