A word from Samsung? This news is like 6 days ago. Samsung spokeperson had stated that there is not enough value in putting Quick charge 3.0 the same way they don't use USB-C.
Even quick charge doesn't matter. S7 lasts ages, as long as you sleep at night you're sorted. Even if you only charge it every other night it looks like.
splitz10, 29 Feb 2016aren't you carrying your spare batteries with you? No one needs to carry a power bank. Just ... morewhy would you want to lug around a brick AND wait for it to charge while you can just pop in a fresh battery? 0 to 100% in 1 minute. It's called simple logic that most Samsung and Apple fans don't have. Sorry that you've been manipulated by those battery cases and sealed in cells.
Great technologies from LG G5, but Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge looks more beautiful.
The only benefit of removal battery is when roming the phone.. Samsung phones have tendency to bootloop and the only way to overcome is to take out the battery or wait til all the juice is drained off

removable battery phone have more possibilities than non one, i dont have to say it like your excuse. you trying too far for a fanboy.
back to topic, quick charge will reduce battery life cycle. unless you want to change your battery/phone often, i reccomend dont use it
Anonymous, 29 Feb 2016Is it really that difficult for you to understand? The point is you dont have to carry anythin... morearen't you carrying your spare batteries with you? No one needs to carry a power bank. Just slip on Samsung's Battery case. The battery is 6000mah which is still more than what you could get from two extra G5 batteries. If you don't plan on coming home at all (after leaving work) then you have your Zero Lemon battery case (8500mah). No cycling off your phone. No removing pieces of your phone. No square battery poking at your leg from within your pocket, no dropped phones during replacement, just a smooth continuous experience using your phone. That's the way it should be.

No one ever carries an endless supply of batteries in their pockets. I can pretty much guarantee that when I leave work at 5PM I have 100% on my Galaxy thanks to my fast wireless charger. The G5 owner's phone will be at around 25%. They will then swap in a new battery just to be 100%. Now they have a spent battery in their pocket. By 9pm the G5 owner will back down to 45%. I'll be at 55% plus my extra 200% because I have my Samsung battery case (6000mah). By midnight the G5 owner is at 10% and swaps in yet another battery. But this is the same spent battery they removed earlier so they'll have to pull it back out and reach deeper into their pocket to get the remaining fresh battery. 12:10am after their phone finally reboots and after picking the bottom plate that dropped onto the sticky gross bar room floor, they are at 100%. Fast forward through a whole night of partying, texting, messaging, mapping, and taking photos for social networks and it's 7am. The G5 is dead. The S7 still has 50% thanks to that amazing Samsung battery case.

You're making the experience of owning a smartphone not very convenient or appealing
Stop perpetuating the myth that battery swapping will save you. When you leave work your phone will be drained and you'll have to pop in a fresh one. An S7 owner's phone will already be at 100% because it has been off-and-on sitting on the wireless charger. The S7 owner is smart enough to know if he/she will be out all night until the wee hours of the morning and therefore will take their 6000mah battery case or Zero Lemon 8500mah battery case.
The benefits of sealed versus removable battery:
- No need to power off the phone to get extra juice.
- No more uncomfortable spare batteries poking your from your pants pocket
- No more accidentally putting in a spent spare battery
- No more having to keep track of where you put spare batteries
- No more having to remember to charge spare batteries
- No more having to buy extra charging kits for each spare battery
- No more powering off your phone just to get a bump in power
- No more dropping your phone during a battery swap
- No more dropping your battery during a battery swap
- No more dropping a piece of your phone (backplate or bottom plate) during battery swap
These days there really is no value in going with phones with removable batteries. The G5's battery is too small which means you'll be swapping your battery a lot more frequently. That's such a pain in the a$$

Bigger battery beat faster charging any day and twice on holidays.
Why a mobile phone is called mobile?? Because its self sustainable and portable, which translates into decent battery endurance and relative compact size.
The s7 edge is likely to have a two day endurance and has the smallest bezels in the 5.5 phablet zone.
Its funny to see gsmarena so desperately promoting LG now since they used to favor samsung after apple.
The title says: What's that about? Well very simple: samsung really sucks big time and LG simply is better.
Solun1, 29 Feb 2016What is the advantage of having a removable battery in today´s age? Batteries die slowly... moreThe advantage is that if you go outdoors away from anyplace with electricity for an extended period of time you can swap in as many spare batteries you have with you.
When your phone freezes,it is good to have removable battery... :) or you haved a missing call from unknown number,you call back, and realize that call cost 3E or USD and you can`t quit the call,it is good to have removable battery... be smart :D
