It's absolutely crazy how this industry is trying to mold consumers. I've been around cell phones for more than 27 years and work around expensive equipment that utilizes small batteries for PLC operation and and other control boards. To have a $30,000 combi oven unresettable due to failed battery and lack of consumer battery access, is potentially shutting part of their main business down. Why is a phone different? Or why was having a removable battery in a laptop not an issue? First and foremost of importance, should be the overall continued functionality of expensive products.

I was not a Samsung fan until they had retained quick and immediate access to these features. Getting caught in the middle of nowhere with a dead phone due to shorted battery, is not my definitionof a high end phone.

Many can argue with me on reliability. I've heard all the lame excuses. "Slimmer phones". " Different Battery shapes." " Ligthter phones" Etc. But the truth is, battery technology has not evolved or changed nearly fast enough to be taken for granted. Samsung, as large as their phones may be, are still lighter and slimmer than its counter parts. This brainwashing is a money grab by manufacturers and their respective battery vendors.

Panasonic is poised to make 40% more revenue off of embedded batteries and service centers to double their shop work. Who is sacrificing in this case?

Call me old, but you can never call me naive.
