    Though probably not as easy as the S5, it still is technically removable and you can change the battery if you follow the directions, its in the Galaxy S6 manual on page 138

    Here is the manual: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/co...1.0_150302.pdf

    DISCLAIMER: Attempting this on your own is doing so at your own risk, and I am not responsible for any damage to your phone

    HERE IS A VIDEO OF HOW IT WORKS (The video shows a Z3, but its the same process for the S6):

    Breaking the thing open is not the same thing as being user replaceable. Which is the reason you've got a disclaimer in your post. 😛

    Why a video of the Xperia?

    Sure, iPhone had removable battery all along. Heck, it even had removable screen!

    Well it does have a glass back

    A determined person could simply remove the glass back and replace it with a removable plastic or wood panel.

    Or an aftermarket back cover with swappable battery adapter.

    What? Why would anyone want to do this?

    So they can rig up a swappable battery setup. It'd take a little less energy than what's being expended with whiny forum posts.

    Totally agree. This is longest time that I have had the same model phone. I got my GS4 at its initial release. The GS6 battery will still fine when it is sold by the third-party seller when I get my next device whatever it is.

    Yeah, and the sad part is someone will try and do it and it's all your fault. Lol

    You have reinvented yourself with a new business venture that you will need a great deal of venture capital to start.

    I probably wouldn't do this either as it would mess up the looks of the phone, plus, not sure if the wireless charging coil is on the cover. If it is, you would lose that feature

    Good point but wouldn't be more likely closer to the aluminum frame. Not saying that it couldn't still be damaged.

    I'm sure someone will make a video of it when its released. They have the video for the HTC M8 and its the same process
