Shinsi, 01 Sep 2017Non-removable batteries are there so that the phone can be waterproof.Most repair centres and Samsung Experience stores will replace the batteries with new OEM ones and have no issues with water resistance.
They moved on from the old for most their high end phones.
For me it ensures I won't be getting a fake battery IF Samsung repair center sells you the battery and does the replacement.
I still hang on my Galaxy S5. That is where Samsung died for me. Nothing to my test since then. Many screw ups, like non_removable battery, no micro_sd (added later again), still waiting for a decent phone (removable battery, no round edges_ which are not permitting screen protectors or safe cases_ I will fork any money out for their insuficiently developed technology and design.

I'm sure Samsung will sell you one. And if you managed to actually get an real authentic battery, get the pry tools. Just don't break the glass back in the process. Fiddle with the insides. Make sure you apply the correct adhesive.
Genius suggestion. I'm sure it will be still water-resistant resistant. It's going to be sooo easy to do for everyone. I mean the chances of it ever exploding is so unlikely.

I have s Note 5 and it's sealed, the batteries are cheap and available, there are tons of DIY videos on how to remove and replace the batteries.
You don't have to throw away your phone. Just get the battery and have it replaced.
Same for your MacBook, HP Spectre, etc. ALL batteries are removable.

Is the battery removable on a Galaxy Note 8?
Batteries are considered "consumables". They all go bad after a few hundred charge cycles. What happens after a couple of years when the battery in the Galaxy Note 8 starts going bad? I'd hate to HAVE to throw away a $1000 phone after 2 or 3 years.
Why make such a big phone?. Why not a stylus phone with around 5", add in DAB radio. Dual SIM. 4K video recording. They put in non-removable batteries. Whilst it may not be an issue for the first owner, but in terms of re-selling with a worn out battery, people will struggle.
All these phones look alike. They don't have a dedicated back button.....
These phones are delicate. Drop the phone once to the ground and that is $£Â€900 down the drain....

its time for a new and different type of phone. Sorry samsung you have lost me forever.
How do you get $700? they posted $900. The NOTE8 has same battery size bigger screen and comes with an spen over the V-30, not to mention a larger megapixel front facing shooter and rear Optical Stabalization on both rear cameras including zoom on one lens and 2GB more RAM, I still could post more. $100 difference not bad at all
I love the Samsung products.. Suddenly a add of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is came and I saw the ad I think this is the most stronger then other cellphone
