    Are they really doing away with the microSD card and removable battery on the S6?

    From rumors for sure the battery is gone.... And seem likely the SD card also. Just rumors though

    Battery sizes are big enough now that you don't necessarily need to swap batteries out, my GS5 I never needed to do it under heavy use

    I take it you aren't on Verizon and haven't "upgraded" to 5.0.

    thats what external battery packs are for. Why compromise design and build for the 5% that are power users? I've always hated phones with removable backs since they were so flimsy and cheap. You get a bigger battery on a unibody phone as well.

    Because most people put their phones in cases. With external battery packs you have to wait for the device to charge. It's almost just as bad as being hooked to the wall. And the rumors have the battery in the S6 as less than the S5. Samsung batteries are usually the biggest and they're removable. The LG G3 also had a big battery, which was removable.

    From all these renderings I'm seeing it appears that the Micro SD and Battery are dead. Its going to be just like a Iphone 6. ugh.

    Reports are pointing at smaller battery like 2600mAh. That's 200mAh down from S5. But remember M8 with 2600mAh had quite respectable battery life. It depends on the software optimization and also 14nm Exynos 7 might be enough offset for that so it might be better than S810 + 3000mAh.

    I just hope that the Note 5 keeps the removable battery and SD card. If not I will be going to another phone company, which I doubt Samsung cares.
