To the eyes of the buyers, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is truly a champ. However, it may have been so good that it turned out to be bad for the manufacturer.
The Galaxy Note 4 came with the removable battery feature which lots of new devices lack. By keeping this feature, the device’s lifespan becomes expandable – this resulted in buyers sticking to this particular device without opting to purchase a newer device.
If you’re thinking that doing away with what fans want would destroy the brand’s reputation and result in slow sales, you’ll be surprised to find out that the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) disclosed that the Galaxy Note 5 was voted as America’s most loved device of 2015.
Samsung had omitted the removable battery feature for the Galaxy Note 5 and it had also forgone the IR blaster and microSD expandable storage feature. So, how was the company affected by this move?
Well, even the explosive Note 7 couldn’t do much to ruin Samsung. There simply isn’t any reason for Samsung to bring back the removable battery feature, from a business perspective. It may benefit the buyers but may end up jeopardizing the company’s upcoming sales figures.
That said, bringing back the microSD slot would be a good move as media file sizes are growing these days. It could be that Samsung wants to rob users of the chance of elongating their device’s lifespan.
