I never said removable battery is bad, on the contrary it's a great thing to have. But to tell me sliding out battery instead of popping it out and calling it innovation is a simplest form of exaggeration.
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2016removable battery is basically nonremovable, if you choose not to remove it right so why on ... moreOn why some companies put non-removable is because they want to earn more money by people to buy new phones than buying new battery. This the whole concept of Apple that unfortunately some companies are copying as well. Apple is a selfish company who thinks always of personal advantages of its customers...look at its accessories, you cannot use other brands except buying directly from them, because they won't simply work if from other brands...

E-Knife, 20 Feb 2016would u please shut up haterHe's not a hater, he's a fool. Battery life is the most important spec on mobiles (a dead phone is a useless phone) and the best way have as much of it and never charge is removable tech.
To him innovation is a new thing. To me innovation is a new use. Removable batteries used to be useless in the dumb phone era. Now that phones have become our personal computers it's the most important thing (no charge time + infinite charge via carrying and spare or two).
The new use that removable batteries found (the juice behind your personal computer) made them the most innovative thing of the last decade. So he's exactly wrong, his mind is narrow, but he's not a hater...
removable battery is basically nonremovable,
if you choose not to remove it right
so why on earth all those company put non removable
they want you to keep buy new phone every year

This is awesome, that's how a flagship should be, Innovative and No-Compromise phone!
It's sad that most flagship phone today compromise removable battery..
