Yes, I "get" that you can make the device smaller (and thus lighter), but only marginally so, and at the expense of functionality and serviceability.
So what do you not understand?
SOME users prefer smaller/lighter, even marginally to more battery.
You do not.
What disorder do you have that prevents you from understanding people have different preferences, which is what we're talking about here.
The non-removable battery is not any type of advantage to me.
Emphasis mine. It appears that you understand that its not for you, but the problem seems to be that you fail to understand that you aren't the only person in existence and likewise aren't the only opinion that matters.
Your post wreaks of an 15 year old that thinks his opinion and style is the only one in the universe that possibly matters.
Don't buy apple if you don't like it, but stop this bullshit of claiming you don't understand, its just that you refuse to accept someone else has different preferences than you.
You appear to be the one with the problem.
