Julliard, 09 Jul 2016Then isn't it easier just to buy an LG G5. That have removable battery and expandable battery ... moreThe G5 is less efficient than the competidors like the note 5 (even if had the G5 had the same 3000 mah battery as the note 5, it would be inferior)
I don't like the G5 add ons, the camera module only adds 1 200 mah, and makes the look very weird and unbalanced in shape. i would have prefered stereo speakers or a big fat 10 000mah battery add ons.
And using extra batteries with that slide in design doesn't look very reliable on long term, also for ME it's better to use extended batteries, it's totally worry free, i only have to remember to charge at night and i can carelessly use the device during the day without ever have to check the battery percentage.

-let makers build thin phones for the ones who like that and don't care much about battery.
-for people who want big batteries and don't care about thinness , they can use extended batteries like the Zerolemon ones.
-For people who want to keep the phone thin but need extra power, buy extra batteries and battery charger or a powerbank.
With removable batteries everybody wins!!

It give wrist pains if used for a long period of time. Especially big phones. Thats why thinner is better. Why don't you carry a Nokia 3310 then if battery so important. That will last your longer than a week.

That is a big bump from prebvious generation. Samsung is really trying hard to make the battery bigger. Would you buy a flagship thicker than 9mm? I know you would, but not the rest of the world would.
No, I don't want one. Anker or any other trusted third party will happily sell you 20Ah battery pack with Quick Charge 3.0 for less than what Samsung is asking for the 5.1Ah toy.
Sorry for being an ignorant LOL but what's the different between powerbank and battery pack? Don't tell me that Google is my friend because we are not! LOL
I have 2 Xiaomi battery packs, 16000mAh and a 20000mAh. The 20000 mAh is good enough to charge my S7 edge 3-4 times. And all this at a respectable speed. Around 15-20 mins for 10% of battery life.
Havent tested the 16000 mAh battery pack yet with the S7 edge.
So... in 10 minutes it maybe charges around 20-30% battery. Oh... wow... I want it... so badly... not.... rlly...

Light usage with no more 500mb to keep it going to 13-15 hours for the day. I know because I keep a spreadsheet or the battery usage times in order to know what to expect for the Note7. It has surpassed 50 cycles - I know its average capacities, and it can keep up with light usage for the day.
The S7 Edge's battery performance is designed for the average light user consumer. I do extreme usage times in a day - 3-4Gb data usage, 6 hours SOT, over 16-17 hours stretches, connected to two BT accessories, notifications all on, and still have 40% left with Zerolemon 10,000mAh. I never have to charge or carry some battery.

Trusted third-party companies like Zerolemon produce great and reliable batteries. I can agree on fake ones being out there, but what's stopping people from getting the replicated internal battery for lower cost when the time finally comes to replace that sealed battery? Do you see my point?
When that sealed battery starts to bulge INSIDE, then what? At least with removable, there is a chance to inspect it every 3 months or so for that slight bulge as a sign of battery degradation.
WHY in the World do we want to inherit the problems of iOS sealed battery? Or why do we want to inherit their woes of having to plug in before going home?
removable battery and extra battery kit for the win
i ll stay with my lovely note4

With the design of thinner but more powerful smartphones these days the rnd team dont take onto account a long lasting supply of power, more like just enough that is acceptable.
Now the want for thinner is better they are deally limited to the size of the battery and now rather then make it a fraction of a mm larger they submit yet another gimmick device for you to spend money on so you can talk longer.
Removable battery devices are what i want to that simple fact.

Removable batteries allows you to choose between more choices for extra power during the day.
And what that Anon. said about the reducing of fake and faulty batteries that cause damage with the use of sealed batteries, makes sense but not every repair man is honest, the costumers won't be able to tell if they installed a generic battery inside, and usually they will charge you like it was original plus the manual labor.
Also most people don't like to have their devices disassembled just to replace a battery. And taking it to an official Samsung repair center, it's usually more expensive, and they aren't everywhere.
And why spend extra money on manual labor when removable batteries allow you to do it yourself.
Xiaomi 20000mah that's all i need. Fast charging is nice but for the kind of heat it produce, no thanks. Turned off Fast Charging on my Note 5, much happier person hah
