    Please vote. I would rather have a removable battery, but seems like people would rather have wireless charging and water-proofing (although this could have been done just like the Galaxy S5 had the ability to do both). Pretty sure Samsung won't bring that feature back but would be nice to see what people think

    Also who else remembers this commercial?

    No. I think that'd be a huge mistake and that it'd be a sign that Samsung lost their way.

    What if the design was still glass and looks exactly the same? (Removable glass back panel).

    Why vote? It won't change anything. S8 is a done deal.

    I would never do it now. Buying an extra battery is an extra expense I don't need after spending $800 on a phone.

    What happens if your battery life lost its original charge life after 8+ months? A new phone is more expensive...

    Phones are designed much better than that now. I just don't see that happening. My S7 Edge battery still impresses me over a year later. Buying an extra battery seems unnecessary in 2017. Quick charge, wireless charging all suit me fine.

    I would rather have a sealed battery, even if it meant no additional feature type benefits, such as wireless, water resistance, etc, etc.

    Back in the day it would have been nice but with tech now a days the phones have been lasing me a whole day. As long as the battery can do that, I don't need a removable one.

    I get that different users have different needs, but I'd rather have a removable battery than a waterproof or water-resistant device. If Samsung came back with a device like this, I'd be happy! Especially if it didn't​ have a home button. 😉

    My S6 Active had a 3500 mAh battery. After 8 months, I would only get half a days worth of battery. Might have been because of wireless charging, probably heated up my battery and shorten it's life span...

    What if there was a recall again (like Note 7). Wouldn't it be easier to send back the battery instead?

    Only if they could definitively say that the issue was only in the battery and could be 100% solved with just swapping batteries. Given the 2 recalls and the 2-3 month lag until they could identify the issues, there doesn't seem to be a way that they could that sure - since they were mistaken the first time. I can't find the thread where I detailed the reasons, but I think that it's likely the situation would have been MUCH worse if they tried to replace batteries, rather than recalling all of the devices. I think they'd have lost much more money, more people would have been hurt and it'd likely have doubled up the close to $20 billion they already lost in the existing scenario.

    Only problem there is neither I nor Samsung would be comfortable with me handling a defective battery prone to exploding. Can you imagine if that thing exploded in your hands?

    You still wouldn't have use of a phone. Batteries weren't available, at all, for the first recall and people had to get loaners. The phones (batteries) in the final recall had to sent in a sealed box. So it wouldn't matter if it was a phone or battery.

    No, I personally don't need a removable battery for my smartphone. Instead, I often carry a small external battery pack to charge up my phone if I know I'll be out late and my lose power.

    Because batteries get worse with age and because I hate feeling like I am going to be pushed, hard, into replacing an expensive phone every 2 years, yeah, I miss the removeable battery, My Galaxy S3 lasted way longer than anything else I have used, because of that. On the other hand, with two little grandkids, the water resistance is pretty much a must have, something I have been sorry about with the Pixel. So you know, kind of six of one, half a dozen of the other, as my grandmother used to say with a big shrug. Anyway, removeable batteries seem to be going the way of other extinct exotica.

    I wouldn't mind it at all. They can design replaceable battery phones with water resistance.

    Absolutely. The S7 was water/dust resistant and had a removable battery. 90% of people slap a case on the thing anyways. I normally have my phone last 3-4 years and after 2 years or so the battery definitely drains a lot faster. Only reason I'm looking for an upgrade from the S7 is I switched carriers and need a phone compatible on Band 66 for LTE

    Must have meant S5.

    I used to be a removable battery guy, but I think at this point, I'm used to not having one. Design is pretty much always better on phones that don't have removable batteries so I'm happy Samsung is continuing this way.

    I will always prefer a removable battery... that way at least I have options. I may not always NEED a removable battery, but I like having the choice.

    I use cases for water protection anyways, and a dry-sack when things get really ugly.

    I believe the reason for needing a removable battery is important.

    1. Has their able to fit a higher capacity in the same size of battery when I still have my phone two years from now, I would probably buy one.

    2. If the S8 operates somewhere to my current S5 that I'm looking to replace, right now my phone dies with it showing 38% battery still left. Therefore it would be nice to buy a new battery and replace it easily and cheaply.

    Nope removeable battery is pointless in 2017. Casual users prefer fast charging and waterproofing. Please guys get over tjis battery nonsense and ir blaster **** makes us phone/tech guys look like whiny nerds.
