samsung made it clear that they can only choose either to have waterproof or removable battery
Just got my this morning so excited i am the third person to get the Note 7 in Edmonton.

Especially when it most likely means they can't use glass, and have to stop using that for metal, when there is currently no metal and slim smartphone with ip68 and removable battery.
And that will also mean no more wireless charging.
So it is bad for:
Anyone who doesn't utilise the feature as it means smaller battery
Its bad for anyone who likes glass or wireless charging.
Its bad for anyone who wants a phone with ip68.
The design, the ip68, the wireless charging, and the battery, are pretty much the only features of the device that are even advertised. So its absurd to claim he loses out.
Rather than that you're better off hoping for improvements in battery degradation.
AnonD-67141, 19 Aug 2016My Galaxy Note 7 has arrived yesterday from Vodafone Australia. Best smartphone by far for me.Congratulations!! Did vodafone give you any significant discount over pvp there???
Just take care not to scratch it, latest tests show it's not scratch proof.

droid4every1, 19 Aug 2016Why do you need a removable battery which is 3500 mAh and is going to last a day full at least... moreOf course, i use quickcharge.
the thing is batteries degrade quick (if you use your phone a lot), and in around one year the capacity decreases dramatically. If you are not lucky, the battery will get to a point when it can no longer provide necessary amperage, and will cause unexpected reboots and shutdowns. powerbank or wireless charge will not help you in this situation, only battery replacement.
To advocate for non-removable batteries, or to say that who wants removable ones, is against your own interests.
SaltandPepper, 19 Aug 2016Note 3 is 2013 device dude,how about One (M7) did they get Marshmallow update?I didnt ask for marshmallow but a 5.1.1 which would have helped my note 3 to be stable but still on unstable 5.0 even today
A Note 4 user, 19 Aug 2016What are you laughing at? some people have a brain, and want to spend their hard earned money... moreWhy do you need a removable battery which is 3500 mAh and is going to last a day full at least and when you can charge the phone with quick charge 2.0 QUICKLY. Also it has wireless charging built-in. Moreover you can get a 10,000 mAh quick charge 2.0 battery for 15 bucks in Amazon. Also a removable battery affects the sleek design of the phone. You can't stay in 2014, the world has moved on. So...
mir, 19 Aug 2016Tell that to apple. At least this one actually gives you all the features possible for the build.Don't get me wrong i do like samsung more than apple however i dont think phones should cost near as much as high end laptops. Â€650 would have been more a reasonable price and affordable to more people but i guess companies like those of samsung sony and apple aim for the cash this is what i hate about consumerism fortunately unlike apple the price will go down in no time but that doesn't entice me to invest money on it knowing something better will be out in a few short months
SaltandPepper, 19 Aug 2016Note 3 is 2013 device dude,how about One (M7) did they get Marshmallow update?Apologies for butting in. I take your point about other brands being bad too but to upgrade the Note 3 to a version of Lollipop that had known issues and then just leave it there is pretty bad. To make matters worse if I remember correctly (I owned one at the time) they actually started pushing out 5.0.0 after Google had released 5.1.1 and after the issues with 5.0.0 were fully public. So in essence they knowingly pushed out a dodgy build with known issues and then did nothing to fix it subsequently. That is pretty appalling to my mind and the Note 4 situation was not much better either. It now also looks like as a result of rushing the Note 7 to market too soon they are already having to push bug fix updates to a phone that is barely even released and in short supply. People will argue that it should have shipped with MM and Nugart is too new only to end up in precisely the same situation with MM.

A Note 4 user, 19 Aug 2016What are you laughing at? some people have a brain, and want to spend their hard earned money... moreHahaha. I think your comment is worthless. Come on, different people value things differently. If you think that it's worth the money, buy. If not, don't buy. Simple as that. If you love your note 4 so much, just keep it. The world has moved on and we now have wireless charging and power bank and people use them.
A Note 4 user, 19 Aug 2016What are you laughing at? some people have a brain, and want to spend their hard earned money... moreI'm just trying to understand something. Are you saying that because the battery is fixed it should be worth less that the Sony, HTC, apple etc which also have fixed battery
