My Samsung SG S5 was the last Galaxy to have a user removable battery and will be the last Galaxy that I buy. Even today's top of the line phones only last about 4 hours when under heavy load like video calls and 3D gaming. And there's the fact that every charge cycles reduces the battery's capacity. The extra 1mm that having a permanent battery may shave off the thickness is not worth it. Never mind the fact that nearly everyone that drops $800 for a phone puts it in a fat protective case totally negating the slim argument.
So am I alone in taking pleasure from watching Samsung have to recall millions of phones for this idiotic move? I hope this serves as a reminder to Samsung that this was a terrible trade off for us consumers. And I hope it costs them more than the "planned obsolescence" will bring then in future profits.
