You're dealing with a brand new device still within manufacture warranty. My point comes from 15-18 months into use when batteries start to show its wear and are outside the warranty period.

I hope you have no problems. But, if the battery does start to wreak havoc on your device, expect to pay at least 150 dollars for replacement. Why pay this when your contract is up in 4-5 months? Under contract, you're still paying on a 700-850 phone.

What about tablets? Most are not held to the same contractual agreements or insurance. What happens when you pay 500 dollars for the tablet and the battery is toast after a year or the charging port has failed? You can purchase a new tablet, OR just remove the battery and desk top charge it or replace the battery. Doesn't this make more Sense financially? Are you wealthy?

You can try and defend the move all you want. Until you have to deal with this more common issue than you'd like to believe, it will soon become reality that this is a d-bag move on the part of manufacturers. They are trying to justify 400-900 dollar throwaway products just for battery issues.
