I too have a Xperia Z3 and after @ 2 years the battery started to show wear. I went with the Note 4. As the specs, not including the camera, are very close to the Z3. Note 4 is a little bigger, which is obvious. But my choice was based on the fact that you can replace the battery in the Note 4.

Buying a battery with bigger capacity doesn't mean the cells inside it are more compressed?
Pressing some buttons simultaneously is hard?
I would rather buy this instead of the S8... I don't like the S8 design and colors.

I have a S5 and in all honesty I have only opened the back about five times in the 2 years and 5 months of owning this phone. It's still as firm as anything out there.
I have a very protective case and usually have no need to take off the case unless I'm cleaning the inner part of the case and the areas of the phone which the case covers. All in all I'm ok with my removable battery.
I'm still using the original battery that came in the box and it's holding it's charge nicely...though obviously not as long as it did before. When the battery is fully charged I usually get 2 hours plus of On Screen Time by the time it reaches the 50% mark. Not bad for a nearly two and a half year battery.
I hate the fact that most of these newer phones have built in batteries just because they are what? Metal or glass? Glass doesn't even make sense for phones because glass breaks and the average consumer drop their phones. I know someone with a glass phone and the back doesn't look nice anymore due to cracks after just one fall. Nokia have been manufacturing metal phones for a long time and they still provided removable batteries think the E-Series, Nokia E51, Nokia E71 and even feature phones like the Nokia 6300. Those Nokia phones were solidly built even though the back covers were removable. Today manufacturers can still do it but maybe they have ulterior motives like charging customers to replace a built in battery or just have the customer purchase a newer phone all together.
I came across someone who had to change their phone because after three years their battery died. If my S5 battery should fail me after three years I will just purchase a brand new one and easily put it in. Removable batteries are a plus anyway you look at it.
How many components will be reuse? I doubt the C9 and following will use the Note 7 components to reduce loses.
if you noticed, the Icon on the Note 7 is similar with a new android Nougat on either flagship samsung phone like S7, but Note 7 at this point is Marshmallow, which is many parts of Note 7 has been moved for Nougat Update. especially at the Blue Coral color, now was available on the Galaxy S7 edge. :')
many good advantage from you has been taken cause Note 7 was R.I.P.. I mean Dead.
when you're turn on this Note 7
and the lock screen display will appear with 3 different password at one purpose...
- Iris Scanner (automatically)
- Fingerprint Scanner (automatically)
- Password (PIN, Patern, etc)
...just like open a Bank Storage :D

This was one of the best smartphones ever, and yet the battery had to explode, I am so sorry this had to happen!
AnonD-291887, 26 Feb 2017Hi, why all want removable batteries phones, can anybody knows what is the major disadvantages... morePhones that have a non-removaable battery are usaly more durable, water resistant, and when battery dies you need to take it to service, or risk it by opening it yourself. On the other side the phones with a removable battery have week protection on the back, the cover usally pops out very easy, and that can cause damage to the back portion of the phone.
Just go with the phone you like and that suits your need's.

He is an Android guy at heart who bought a G1 when it first came out. Watch his Nexus history video. He doesn't love Apple. His fav Nexus back then was the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
arslan, 06 Feb 2017that 's not true i phone 's are most slowest mobiles as compare with samsung Hybridfan here (not Android and not apple)
Just because numbers say so it doesn't mean an iPhone is really slow.
And remember that each OS focuses on a different thing. Apple focuses on SC Power while Android relies on Multi.
