I Miss Removable and Interchangeable Batteries on Smartphones

The LG G3. Remember this one folks?

Simple Tech That We Miss

Usually the battery is the first to naturally die for any smartphone. The screen and other components only conk out if you have an accident or you intentionally smashed your phone. In the last few years manufacturers have stopped making smartphones with removable batteries and said that it was their attempt to make their devices lighter and waterproof. That’s all well and good but the problem is that repairing malfunctioning batteries are expensive. The costs will probably force you to just end up buying a new smartphone.

I was a huge fan of LG and Samsung before because they offered external batteries with charging pods. I could easily just swap out a dead battery with a newly charged one. This meant that I never needed to bring a clunky Powerbank with me everywhere I went. This was one of the reasons why I was using Android over iPhone back then. The iPhone, since it’s inception, stuck to non-removable batteries.
