---" Phones are devices you hold in your hand and manipulated frequently throughout the day. That's just one of the factors that makes the outer physical aspects crucial to pretty much everyone."---

I don't remember such an emphasis on this until Apple said we should.

52% percent of over a thousand people recently polled, said they have no problem sticking to polycarbonate if it meant retaining removable batteries and SD Slots. I think this reflects the great sales of the Galaxy. My recent trip to a Sprint store had 6 people around the Galaxy 4 and not one around the HTC ONE. I asked my friend that works there and she said "While a few people showed great interest in the ONE and purchased it, Most are put off by lack of removable battery. Until battery technology changes in mechanical design, we as society should be very concerned about sealing these things with no way to get to them. Especially, high end phones. Why should I have to revert to a 15 dollar TracFone to make phone calls because my $600+ Elite phone is worthless because of a shorted battery?
