How disappointing

Blackberry is riding on the non-removable battery bandwagon now? The complaints are already piling up against again other manufacturers pulling this ****. I don't see them in business much longer if the demand for removable batteries grows in full force.

I want a removable battery, after experiences a bad non-removable battery. My phone is basically useless without it being plugged in. I don't want a touchwiz device, So either I get a lower mid range device, GPE Samsung device, or just suck it up and buy a S4 or Note 3 and root it, and load a ROM onto it.

Somehow Apple made a go of it though with just about anything portable it sells...

No big deal for many, a huge deal for some. I personally don't like having the option taken away from me.

HawkeyeCC,
I do agree seems to be a trend from all the major players except for Samsung. Having an extra battery is not the issue, I have car adaptors, extra usb charger at work, and one of those portable battery blocks that I use now and then. While not having a removable battery is not a deal breaker, its nice to have it for as said earlier, easier to replace a bad battery without having to run in circles to have it done by either the company or some after market repair place along with the added expense if post warranty, or having to be without a phone for a few days or longer. Sadly the ownly major player that well replace the battery either in a warranty swap at an Apple Store, or they will fix it within a few hours. And thats...

Their basically doing this to squeeze every millimeter of space they can. Maybe it cuts down on production costs too. Who knows. Whatever the case, like you said its a hassle when it goes.
We have a couple of Apple laptops around here with the internal batteries that are getting older. They are facing a $200 replacement cost vs. almost half that for the removable type. Big hassle. Don't like the trend but I am sure its only going to get worse.
