A Win For The Consumer.

In my opinion, no high end phone should ever, and I mean EVER, be rendered useless just because of a damn battery failure whether it happens to a minority of users or not.

I also feel expandable SD slots are essential for two reasons:

1) Why offer 16, 32 or 64g choices? A device should be custom tailored to needs. And if needs grow, the phone should be able to follow. Manufacturers are trying to groom consumers into spending far more in purchasing the next size memory in a phone when removable is so much cheaper.

2) While not often, I have had 5 phones in the course of 27 years where the internal memory failed or phone suffered total malfunction. Having the ability to immediatly save info to a removable card when downloaded is priceless in case of total handset failure down the road. If using the same operating system, moving the card to the new phone is a snap. Cloud is new and questionable.

I don't get the whole metal vs plastic thing. The average user purchases a new phone every two years or when contract expires. They more than often cover them with cases as well.

I don't know many people that claimed they purchased on materials used. This is a "geek" traight that doesn't really cross pollenate to mainstream consumers. The sales of the Galaxy S3 and notes have proved this. Samsung, thus far has recognized the average User. This is what it is all about.

I claimed I would be first in line to purchase any high end phone that could deliver the specs and design patterns while retaining the essentials of removable battery and SD slots. Samsung has detailed this in the GalaxyS3 and now the S4.
