I MISS REMOVABLE BATTERIes

Imagine the switch and steam deck with this shit. Bring 2-3 batteries with you and swap them out easily.

Portable tech is nearly useless without it. It felt more high tech 15 years ago when I could just swap batteries on all my devices.

      ... Business optimization ...

      You do realize when you buy a phone from performance standpoint, you could use another 3 years or so.

      The battery reduces from three days to around 12 hours cycle after one and a half years on average.

      Wake up, Mr. Freeman. Wake up and smell the ashes...

      I'll optimize kicking your fricking ass homosexual.
      A long time ago i had an LG Tritan and my provider offered free battery swaps at any store. I could walk in, give them my mobile number and the battery, and leave 5 minutes later with a fully charged battery. It was truly glorious.
      They quit doing it because they must have lost their asses on it.

    What's the point of having multiple batteries if you can't hot swap them? If you have to shut your phone down you might as well just plug it in and charge it.

      Never buying that communist trash. The free market decided on glued-in batteries because only poorgays can't afford to buy a new device when the battery quits. Imagine the looks on people's faces when you autistically pull a battery out of your phone and swap it like an incel instead of using a power bank like a normal human being. Showing off that I can afford a new $1000+ phone every year is a big part of owning one, not that a dirty communist would understand.

        The free market is incompatible with advertising and IP law. People will want what they are told to want and government protectionism will prevent needs from being fulfilled as they materialize.

        Except most of those phones are not owned. They are financed. Some bullshit scheme where you pay 0.00 for your plan but end up paying 3x the phone over your "plan". Just like a good little consumer dumbass.

        Absolutely nobody, anywhere, ever, will distinguish your glass rectangle from the rest of them. You would have to go to the settings and show "About device" to confirm the exact model and hope they know it. If you're jerking off to the thought of all the bystanders being shocked by your new phone you're exactly the type of sheeple that companies wish would exist.

    Every post so far fails to mention the obvious fact when it comes to removable phone batteries:

    It allows you to kill the power to your phone when you're not using it. They can't track you with GPS or cell towers and they can't activate your camera or microphone. Yes they can do all these things, even if your phone is simply switched off. Remove the battery and you remoce their ability to spy on you via your phone.

        But phones had no screws back when batteries were removable.

          Screwed in batteries are still easily removable while providing a secure battery in case one's phone falls with no clunky phone case. The only good reason not to go with a screwed in battery is that glued components are better organized without a million screw holes.

    After 6 years my op6's battery is finally showing its age. I really don't want a new phone so a battery replacement would be stellar. What's the best place to buy replacement batteries?

    Companies make more money if you have to replace the device, which happens when batteries start sucking. That is the ONLY reason batteries aren't replaceable currently, and it needs to be mandatory by law to have replaceable batteries again to change this.

      This, most modern flagship chips would easily run well for 10 years at this point, phones have plateau hard, batteries are pretty much the only way they cam encourage replacing shit regularly

    Useless an average android comes with 65w charger some even 120w charger, goes from 0 to 100 in 30 minutes, and the batteries have been improved so much that u won't need to change it at all, my 3 yo old chinkoid is still 95% original capacity i don't remember the last time it died or i charged it to 100%, i just plug it as i go for a quick bump in 15 minutes
