[deleted post]Well said, and with removable battery, consumers got the right to inspect and change the battery by themselves instead of that controlled by service centers. Those slim Android smartphones with non-removable battery will be suitable for consumers who wanna change their smartphones every 1.5-2yrs, they dun care about the battery inside. With SD820, I believe it can last 6-7yrs just by replacing the faulty or under-performed battery ourselves...
The non replaceable battery reasoning is that because most people that have to go to a lab after two years to replace the battery and pay 80$ for the process , will prefare to buy a new phone instead.
Almost two years ago I was considering replacing my s3 where the charge held for 6 hours and I was considering to replace the phone but than I replaced the battery for 10$ and suddenly I understood there was no reason to replace the phone.
The truth is that if most people could every two years, run factory reset and replace the battey for a measly sum , they would suddenly see that their old phones start running fast and lasting a whole day and they won't replace them so fast.
If you intend to keep the phone for 3 years or more , buy a device with replaceable battery or if you need to run through more than a battery each day. otherwise this feature doesn't matter.

Especially we focused on how smart marketing converts people to consumer victims. They place in front of you a sh*tpile and they trick you to see it as a treasure. Nowadays, smart phones are increasing their IQ, in terms of technology, and their users' IQ is going deep-deep down. Both George Orwell and Aldus Huxley "predicted" this, more than 60 years ago.
Congratulations my friend. Your smartphone is way smarter than you.
You may be ignorant and asleep, but at least you are happy.
[deleted post]Doesn't really matter how long it takes, especially when what you suggest involves dismantling the phone on the go. I've had many phones with removable batteries, and I've never made use of the feature.
This free charging cradle and extra battery is great and is pretty much the only way most people would even consider it. But frankly, even if I had a phone with a removable battery with this cradle and extra battery, in probably still won't make use of it and would just put it in the cupboard never to be seen again.
After all, having a decent battery like the one in the s7 edge means you wouldn't need to worry about it to begin with. Along with power saving mode it could probably last days. And if there was a rare instance where I needed even more, then how long it takes to 'charge' would probably be the least of my concerns.
What I'm trying to say is, removable battery doesn't make up for the crappy battery life and I'd take longer innate battery any day.
ERIC, 11 Mar 2016I got to say - the removable battery argument is a bit of a farce one tbh. This is not differe... moreAnd I've been using extended batteries for 1 whole month now. Sure, it's bulkier and thicker. While you like the inheritance of the power problem of iPhone users, it is incomparable to the 3 times the battery capacity or 3 times longer before switching to another other battery.
It just means I can significantly use my device for extended heavy usage without ever charging or switching batteries during the ENTIRE day. NO need to carry around charger/charging pad/powerbank/extra phone or wait HOURS for charging.
ERIC, 11 Mar 2016I got to say - the removable battery argument is a bit of a farce one tbh. This is not differe... moreIf battery packs instantly charged your phone than yes that would be great. But have you ever placed a charging phone in your pocket? Switching the battery gives you a full battery in a minute not in 2 hours.
ERIC, 11 Mar 2016I got to say - the removable battery argument is a bit of a farce one tbh. This is not differe... moreThe removable battery system is very practical and much more efficient.
1. Better battery cycling and thereby longer life. If you cycle 3 batteries, they can be 3 times more effective in holding a charge than a single one over usage. The fact is, they will slowly lose charge hold.
2. Seconds to get a full charge back than wait hours to charge. It takes only just about a minute, from turning off, swapping, and full boot.
3. No need to carry the charger or a heavier power bank. For those days you don't need to carry a bag, just your essentials, your phone and a thin extra battery - all in your pockets comfortably.
4. You have a choice of a third party extended battery, even tripling the capacity. Yup, Mugen and Zerolemon offer this more effective secure long power needs that guarantee long power use 100% - every ounce of charge is used, unlike power banks.
5. Safer to charge on a cradle than on the device. Forget wireless charging too, as it often contribute heat while while those inductive coils are working. Heat is the number one enemy of current battery technology. Fast charging will also
6. Reduces the chances of theft while charging outside the house.
7. An extra battery is smaller and thinner to carry inside your pocket.
8. When your battery finally gives up, you just buy a new one.
9. No need to pay for more expensive internal battery and wait for days to have it installed.
10. Your device becomes practically wireless without the need to plug in via the micro USB most of the time if you just charge the spent battery via the battery cradle.
A sealed battery gives the advantages of a smaller and thinner body, less expensive to make without the extra housing, and lighter. But it has less practicality to me. You'd have to get this which does not give you a full charge and becomes dead weight, or carry a bulky power bank.
I got to say - the removable battery argument is a bit of a farce one tbh. This is not different from carrying a spare battery pack. I'd sooner get a slim solid state device with better battery capacity. Points for being innovative and all but this isn't a step in the right direction to what consumers really want.
Still just one of a typical smartphone with no really premium name or look at all... the brand isn't a status symbol and the brand and device itself was not so advertise and famous... why would folks buy this afterall with same price as galaxy S7 or iphone 6s? of course people would rather go for what Samsung or Apple better to offer with such price! couse majority of people preffered to pick whose famous, status symbol or used by the majority itself and well advertise product or brand. LG must compete with chinese OEMs when it comes to pricing and don't think that they are match as Apple or Samsung constantly not!
dont worth giving money for lg g5 bad phone anyway i personaly dont belive that lg will succseed in high edn quality phones to compete with samsung .. apple .. even with huawei and xiaomi btw- (sorry about my bad english :)
The strategy chosen by this firm, LG phones, to sell their new phone, is one interesting and correct. He chose well, countries to launch their phone. A strategy that the folks at Samsung, didn't know to apply. LG 5 is a modern phone, well-equipped top level. And it comes with those facilities that Samsung with S7, does not possess. Those amenities that you want most of the buyers realy, and no imagination.
Destitute Samsung fans. They no longer know what to lie in connection with those phone oddness S7. If we compare the two phones, LG 5 and S7, then any normal person, with neuron bearer, will choose diskless, LG5. This phone is better proportioned, more elegant, more engaging, and more.... than S7.
Diskless superfluous, LG won the race with Samsung S7.
If I had to choose between LG and Samsung 5 S7, i choose without hesitation on LG5.
THE BEST PHONE YEAR 2016 IS LG5.
S7 from samsung is "beat" bad at all chapters.
LG Is Boss, 10 Mar 2016Life's Good Godly5 stomps the Shamesung S7I don't think so. Please enlighten us in what way it stomps the S7, the S7 has the better display,better camera, faster memory, water and dust proof, wireless fast charging, and I am not a Samsung fanboy, I use a buttery smooth Nexus 6 as my daily driver running Pure Nexus ROM.
