Knobbs: I also see that every time someone agrees that there is a problem, fanboys just yell "defective phone, not an issue."
Kuroshin: The "removal mechanism" in both of my phones (Galaxy S2 and HTC Rezound) is comprised of "sharp whack to the backside."
Knobbs: I don't get this. I have the iPhone 5. I use it a shiatload. I have no problem with the battery. Charge once a day.
Kuroshin: whistleridge: a word on removable batteries: they're ridiculous. Not only are they a parlor trick, they actually cost you battery life. Take a Samsung smartphone apart and you'll see that the battery removal mechanism is as large as the battery itself. If it weren't removable, twice as much battery would fit inside the phone. So it's not only a ploy to sell you the phone base a fraudulent feature, it's also a ploy to sell you the other half of the battery life which should have been included in the first place. So no need to write in and criticize Apple for not allowing the iPhone 5 battery to be removed. The only potential for criticism here is whether Apple is failing to match up with consumer priorities when it makes its iPhones increasingly thinner and lighter rather than giving them increasing battery life.Exactly. Smartphones don't have a lot of excess real estate, and human fingers are bulky. As a result, there's just no way a removable battery can ever be as efficient as a nonremovable one. To paraphrase Churchill, I hate the Apple battery and think it's the Worst. System. Evar...except for all the other.LOLWUT?The "removal mechanism" in both of my phones (Galaxy S2 and HTC Rezound) is comprised of "sharp whack to the backside." The battery in the S2 is teh hueg and lasts for three days between charges, while the battery in the Rezound is comparatively tiny due to all the silicon meat surrounding it, and therefore lasts only one single day before going flat. Neither phone has any sort of bulky removal system, unless by "bulky removal system" you and the author mean "four copper contacts."Talk about a bullshiat fanboy argument. Hell, even my old Droid X had nothing more than a tiny plastic flap as a "mechanism" in the back.I had the first three generations of iPhone, and while I never had battery problems, they didn't last more than two days on a single charge (especially the 3GS). There is absolutely no merit in what you said.
