Ridiculous. Carrying 2nd battery everywhere u go leaving appart Investing in another battery from day one. And what about selling the set after a year? Both the battery will have half good life?you will feel bad selling at very lower price. Charging the 2nd one outside the phone will require another kit. Now question is will that support quick charging?i think no. Who takes so much pain for having removable battery.Only some one really out of mind
Solun1, 29 Feb 2016What is the advantage of having a removable battery in today´s age? Batteries die slowly... moreAre you sure?? I'm not really into removable batteries and i don't care if my phone has that or not as long as it has SD Card and Waterproof.
But removable or not, i can take an android phone and make it dissapear in 2 minutes. And in 10 minutes it will never be traced again.
It's that easy. All you need is the knowledge..
Herodroid, 29 Feb 2016well, lg g5 users will have to spend their time in finding and spend money in buying USB type ... moremore like S users will be fondling for the right orientation for charger connection in the old USB. Type C is definately a +, dont justify it with a cheap answers like that. lol
As a former major Apple user, and businessman, I have observed that all companies (like the chancellor!) give, and take. Buy an iMac, and despite it's pretty exterior and excellent display, it uses sub standard electronics, better suited to a laptop. Slow hard drives, and a so so GPU. And when they launch a new iPhone (this really happened), they use a lower quality audio DAC in the new phone - hence sound quality from the iPhone 1/2G is in fact better than some more recent models. Likewise, as per the lower pixel count camera (not required to improve quality, the Panasonic GX8 does great with 20MP!), Samsung have cut corners to save money for the display and other twinkly bits. IE, no USB-C to no doubt save in licensing fees, and no speedy charging for either cost or as article states, technical reasons. The ultimate phone will never happen unless you build it! (Something LG have almost enabled us to do.)
Herodroid, 29 Feb 2016well, lg g5 users will have to spend their time in finding and spend money in buying USB type ... moreAnother misinformed dolt......the Galaxy S6 already had faster data transfer speeds than most high end devices last year because of its UFS 2.0 memory modules...and Samsung's own adaptive fast charging is more than fast enough to charge the 2 new devices quickly so there.......with all this in mind what benefit would changing a connector and not the USB standard have? Unless you're also one of those noobs who thinks USB 3.1 and the Type C connector are the same

If someone stole my phone, he/she will immediately off my phone instead of removing my battery as you claim.
Such a shame that Samsung fail to implement quick charge.
Won't buy a Samsung again.
Now waiting for HTC M10 to decide whether going for G5 or M10.
I'd hazard a guess that this lack of QuickCharge 3.0 doesn't apply to the Snapdragon 820 version of the phones.
What is the advantage of having a removable battery in today´s age? Batteries die slowly today and people won´t buy a new one. If they do though, they can still let a professional shop to replace it for them for a few bucks. Also, when someone steals your phone, they remove the battery and you are out of luck. With sealed in batteries, they cannot do so and you can track your phone or delete it´s contents.
well, lg g5 users will have to spend their time in finding and spend money in buying USB type c and be happy for a faster file transfer and quick charging, while s7 users will be happy using their old micro USB cables and see same speed upload/charging. Not wanna be a d*ck but micro USB is not that bad, but it is really sometimes annoying to plug in cable in right direction in my phone while type c can be plugged in both ways so that's the only issue I have
