    Considering that the recent issues with the batteries requires an entire phone swap, do you think that Sammy is now more inclined to go back to swappable batteries? Seems less expensive to me.

    Nope, I had the insides of my Note 2 replaced because of a bad server address for MS Exchange acts, provided by Samsung, and one of the batteries bellied and swelled and if permanently in a phone would have exploded. The was hot, fried the battery and the memory.

    Now the Note 2 can't find satellites and looks for them all day long. The phone gets hot, battery life is terrible and the battery swells like a pregnant woman. If it was a permanent battery, without location services turned off, it would have exploded. Samsung, WTF is wrong with you. Permanent batteries are dangerous. Exchangeable batteries have the safety valve of not fitting if something in the caused them to expand. It also is cautionary to protect the rest of the phone like memory. For this information that your executives can't figure out, you can send me the next Note with exchangeable batteries. I just bought a lightly used Note 4. And I am sending you back my Note 2 so you can fix it or replace it, as the GPS antenna is obviously no good.

    Better get your act together before LG beats your butt by putting replaceable batteries in the v20.

    Really Carlo? So replacing and trashing the entire phone is cheaper than a design with a removable battery? Guess the recalled phones will become the next "refurbished" ones?

    I don't think so. I doubt they change their whole design when this was an unintended defect that I'm more than sure they'll double check to not repeat with the next phone.

    No I don't think so. First replacing and trashing the phone is not required if you have a battery problem.

    One thing, if your phone is stolen and the battery removed, you aren't going to trace it.

    Less parts to break, less gaps on the phone for dust and dirt, slimmer phones.

    Sealing the battery means less likely to damage a battery. Also sealing the phone means everything inside is covered and protected.

    IPhone has been extremely successful with this design. The Note4 with removable battery was ok but I didn't care for the squeaky sound on phone if pressed too hard because of its Plastic back.
