    We don't know what it's going to be. Anything said about it now is pure speculation. Tuesday we should have a better idea.

    The prime might have good battery life.

    Being that the phone is curved the way it is, I'm inclined to believe it probably will be an unremovable battery. Wouldn't the battery, itself, have to be curved, too? Can they do that with batteries? I can't say I've ever seen a "curved" battery.

    I'm always on the go and I never swap batteries. My phone is in a case and pulling that off, the back cover off, shutting down, swapping batteries, putting it all back together is a pain. I just carry a slim external battery that recharges the phone on the fly if I get low. Otherwise, there's a charger in my car, at my work desk and my home that it gets connected to. A non-removable battery wouldn't even bother me.

    Sealed battery will be the biggest deal breaker for this phone.

    There have been rumors that this phone also might not have a replaceable microSD card. This might be related to the curvature of the phone and possible lack of user-replaceable battery since microSD cards are now typically located in the battery compartment.

    What if it had two batteries? Easier to fit in the curve maybe.

    Actually, that may be the case. Two separated batteries would be able to mesh into that curve. I guess we'll find out next week!

    Or one bulky battery in the middle.

    can't understand where is the problem in fitting a battery on that phone.

    A thin flat battery would fit inside the curve. Just because the chassis and screen is curved doesn't mean everything inside the phone will be curved as well.

    This is just my guess, but I'm thinking its gonna need a removable battery. All android phones do. Especially if you're Rooting and Romming your going to get into a situation where the OS becomes unresponsive enough to where you need a bat pull. Everyones been there I think. Unless ICS addresses that problem

    It does however mean, that any potential extended battery is going to be thick enough to drastically alter the form factor of the phone.Which could be a reason on Google/Samsung's part for potentially making a non-removable battery.


    Personally, I'm going to be -VERY- disappointed if this phone launches without an extended battery option, and without a SD-Card slot...... As I'd much rather deal with touchwiz/blur/sense which can be ROM'd off anyhow, than deal without having storage space for movies, or a battery that doesn't last me a full day.

    Exactly. You know the boards will be flat.

    Why? How many times a day do you remove the SD card. Personally I only remove it when I get a new phone. Now i would just have to copy the card to my PC. Big deal. If it means a thinner phone I'm game.

    Simple math is why...... Phones with SD-Card slots almost invariably hold more total data than phones without....

    Even if this phone has 32gb on board (which is on the high side for phones today) it still has at best identical storage to a 16gb phone with a 16gb card stock, and is a full 16gb behind when you upgrade to a 32gb card slot...

    Imo, there is no upper limit on how much data you can have on phone.

    In the age of cloud storage, a removable sd is not very important to me. I keep all my videos, photo and music on the cloud and only take wirh me the things I need in case of a media emergency. If a non removable battery and non removable sd slot mean a slimmer, better design, then I am 100% in.

    Come on guys.... cloud storage!!

    In regards to the battery, I should just keep one of those nifty external batteries with me. They are less expensive, and usually offer a longer charge time.

    That's just a perception with removable storage devices but it's not completely true. The phones typically only support up to a certain number of gb cards. The Bionic only supported up to 32gb. So while it may feel like "unlimited" because you can put your own card into the slot, the reality is that it has a ceiling based on what the phone supports anyway.

    That said, I still would prefer a removable card (and battery) but probably only because that is what I am used to in my old Droids....

    DH could care less and he is a technogeek with an iPhone 4. When his battery started losing charge, they just replaced his phone for him! Katherine

    Actually, I believe one of the leaks did confirm a removable battery, although to be honest I expected a sealed battery, given the curve of the phone.

    I'm hoping the battery can be removed for those times when a true battery pull is needed to get things working again.
    My Samsung battery is sealed on my tablet, and there are no reset buttons.
    There were times when things froze up, and I had no way of getting it back up and running right away.
    I tried the combination of the power button and volume keys as the method for reseting. Most times it will work right away, but then there are times it won't.
    Thinking I would have to send it in to Samsung for repair, it would start back working as it should after a while.
    I'd hate for my phone to have to go through the same ordeal.
