    It always happens when the rumor mill gives off exciting expectations.

    It's hard to say if Samsung will return to the S5/Note 4 design form as the current design language on the S7 and S7 edge has been pretty popular, especially the latter. Given that a lot of their phones have a similar design language, and how well the S7 is selling, it's unlikely at this point that they'll do another overhaul of their design. Maybe a few more improvements here and there.

    Another thing is that if one truly wants to bring the Note back to its "glory days" of having a removable battery and back cover, the S-line device has to have those first, as the Note (aside from the tablets) is usually based on the S-line device of the same year. Whatever the S-line device gets, it's likely that the Note will pick those up as well, along with its own stuff, since both are part of Samsung's flagship line. Or make the Note drastically different from the S-line, though that does bring in its own set of challenges.

    We'll see next year. Maybe there's a surprise hidden in store?
    Right, their profits from the s7/edge have been pretty high. As long as they don't ever go to their horrible iphone-cloning decisions during the S6 days, I have hope that they will innovate something. Maybe they might add the removable battery the way LG does it, or something a bit different? Here's hoping at least since Samsung can't keep using the s6 design forever, I hope.

    Considering how much better sales have been with these new devices, I doubt they're going back to that. I liked removable batteries, but I'm pretty sure they're done. They may be trying to be like Apple, but it's clearly working. That must be what the majority likes.
    According to their profits, yeah. Maybe their fuel will run out dry soon, and they'll try and go back to removable battery goodness, maybe the way LG kind of does it if they want to keep their aesthetic look? I'm hoping the S8 will at least be a further improvement from their horrible S6 days, they were trying way too hard to be like Apple there.

    I'm not sure if LG is celebrating, though.

    They seem to be in a pretty rough patch right now. Hope the V20 is more of a refined V10. Loved that thing.

    Yeah we can hope. With a newer 820 processor and not that 808 crap, it might be a bigger winner for phablet lovers. I've seen the V10 from a co worker, it seems pretty solid.

    I guess that means it's very likely going to be 3500mAh, judging from the tweet as it compares it to an S7e, and should be significantly larger than the Note5 anyway.

    Mildly disappointed, but it's still an improvement over its predecessor and my old phones.
    Smaller battery could be 3600mah. The original rumor said 4000mah. I am waiting for August 2. How do we know that the tweeter is telling the truth. Not from @evleaks or @OnLeaks. Any one can get on twitter and say they have it. What is the guys past history when it comes to getting newly released phones? Is he a reliable source?

    I don't think Samsung wants to do anything LG does. Their sales are in the toilet and the G5 was a flop. If anything, that's more reason for Samsung to think no one cares about removable batteries.

    He's pretty big in the phone world. Don't know his exact track record, but I'm inclined to believe him. I seriously doubt he'd lie. By looking at his posts it looks like he already has the device. My money is on 3500mah cause he makes it seem like the only plus it has over the S7e is the bigger display and spen.

    All are still rumors until after the announcement.

    Note 4 had great battery life, and overall is the best handset I've owned thus far. The M7 being a distant second.

    Interesting. I have the note 4 and the Note 5 (wife has the 4 now). I like the Note 5 better in every way, including better battery life ..

    I knew either you or playbook fanatic were gonna say that lol. Well he supposedly has the phone in hand so that's not really a rumor. He didn't specifically say what it has though. Did confirm it's not 4000mah though. Said it would have been an instant buy if it had 4k. Oh well, that's what I really wanted to know. 3500 and 3600 is a negligible difference.

    Most definitely do not like a sealed in battery. For me it has never been an issue but if it was I simply would get another phone that fits my needs. It is pretty obvious that Samsung has let that ship sail. They brought SD card back but that is a minor tweak versus changing an entire design to allow removable batteries again.

    You're choosing to believe someone who has an unbeknownst track record. It's cool. Meanwhile, I'm just gonna wait. LOL

    I'm curious about people's experience with sealed batteries. What about the supposedly cure all advice to "pull the battery"? Realistically, how long can any battery perform? I went through several batteries on my Note 3. Still, I couldn't say that a new battery made much difference. What made a clear difference was having to perform a factory reset.

    I guess that can drive them away, yeah. However, I feel maybe with Samsung it can be a "it's good when they do it situation" since Samsung doing non removable backs has increased their sales by going against one of their better features, maybe some kind of cycle could have in a couple of generations, but either way, I'm hoping battery technology gets better sealed or not.
    For me, I just can't do with LG'S power button placement, maybe they should change that next time.

    Instead of pulling a battery you can do a soft reset .
    I've had smart phones since the beginning smartphones and I've never had to replace a battery. I have replaced batteries in the old flip phones.

    Pulling the battery isn't a cure all, it can wreak havoc on the phone and battery. Removable batteries became largely irrelevant when battery life stopped sucking in 2013. There are still some users who have extreme use cases that removable batteries would help, but external batteries would actually help those folks more - were they not adverse to plugging in versus hot swapping.

    My battery life is far worse with the Samsung Note 5 than it was with the LG G2. I get 4.5 hour screen-on time with the Note 5 and got 7.5 hours screen-on time with the LG G2. I'd kill to have the G2's battery life with my Note 5. I remember charging my G2, going to work, leaving 6 hours later and my phone was still at 100%. That would never happen with my Note 5. A removeable battery in the Note 7 would have been a really big selling point for me. If I do a day trip to Portland, my phone will die at some point during the trip. The battery simply doesn't last long enough.

    I've been following him for years. The battery won't be 4000mah. I'd bet money on it. You can wait and find that out on Aug 2nd though lol. The rumors already pointed to the fact it wouldn't have that anyway.

    I know about a soft reset. But whenever I called VZW with a problem, pulling the battery has been a mandatory step in the tech's routine.

    On most phones, holding down the power button for several seconds simulates a battery pull.
