Removable batteries

I wish there wasn't such a drop in quality (manufacture-wise) between phones without removable batteries and those with.

Most phones with removable batteries (such as the SIII and successors) always end up being mostly plastic and feel cheap. As little of an Apple fan as I am, I have always loved the weight of the iPhone 4 series because it just felt solid.


That's no coincidence. A phone with everything sealed up in one solid block will almost always feel better than a phone with separate parts latched together. Phones like the iPhone and One feel more solid because they are more solid. That's just one of the trade-offs with a removable vs. non-removable battery.
