    I like how I can take off the back I don't care if it's plastic. Plus I'll have a case on it

    People moan about the plastic back but you can get custom backs in metal/titanium anyway.

    And most people will have a case so plastic back, CF back, metal back, faux leather back, any other materials, I'll still be getting a car for any phone.

    You people act as if taking the back off is the most important feature of a phone haha. If that's really what you want, then I guess this is the handset for you.

    But if it's in a case, it's honestly a pain to swap batteries.

    Ya really back removal to me is a non issue, however I do want an SD slot (which does not mean the back has to be removed.

    It's a pain when your battery runs out when you are away from your charger. Messing around with battery charging stations was a pain for me when I last used a phone without a removable battery.

    Freeedom. Being tied to an outlet or carrying around an external battery, no thanks anymore.

    Takes me a few seconds to remove my case and maybe a few more to remove the back, very easy and painless. Like shanghaichica said, great option when you are away from a charging source. On my last trip to Europe I was moving around a lot and using my phone a lot. I was very happy to have to option to easily swap out a battery.

    This is an option I find important, along with SD card support. I like keeping a lot of music, books and video on my phone. One of the nice thing about Android is to option to buy devices that are better fits for different users needs.

    Regardless it seems silly to even have to think about carrying around an extra battery, its no different than carrying around a small charger and 1ft usb cable.

    I would much rather Samsung actually give us a decent battery so that it can last a full day under heavy use (not talking 8 hours gaming sessions) just give me a phone/battery combo that lasts, make the phone 1mm thicker and give us a 3000 mAh+ sized battery . Again I go back to the LG G2 which my wife has, no longer does her battery running out even cross her mind. On days she considers heavy use she still has around 30-40% battery left at the end of the day and typically under normal conditions has well over 50% at the end of the day.

    Depending on the case, it could more of a pain to remove it. If you do this daily, you'll scuff up the phone pretty quickly. And as MrSlippery said, it's the same amount of trouble to carry a charger and a battery. I'm never in a situation where I need another battery and could always charge, so it's a null point to me. It's nice that Android offers choices though, I agree.

    But many manufacturers are moving away from removable batteries. Consider that a phone could be thinner, pack a bigger battery, and be more solidly built if you didn't have a removable battery. There are reasons why companies do it; it's not just to spite a small group of consumers.

    I don't carry an extra battery and prefer to have the option simply because when the performance of the battery starts to deteriorate, I can easily replace the battery and the phone is back to being fully functional AND like new! My honest opinion of course!

    I will give you that on replacing the battery, however that said you can replace batteries even on phones that do not appear to come apart. Granted its a little more work but still.

    End of the day I just want a good battery, removable or not but last

    The only reason I can see them moving away from removable batteries is so that the consumer is forced to buy a new phone ever 2 years, or less.
