Samsung Galaxy S6/Edge users would have a better experience with their device, if only Samsung gave them the chance to remove and replace the battery – despite the fact that they would have to look for replacements pretty often as the device has overheating tendencies.
Samsung made things worse for users by keeping the battery affixed inside which begs the question, why did the company opt for such a move?
Well, it looks like it’s all due to looks. The South Korean company wanted a thinner and sleeker design for its model so it decided to forego the removable battery feature. And, at the beginning, it didn’t seem to matter as many folks still bought the device.
However, is it true that removable batteries affect the thinness of a device? The Galaxy S6/Edge measured at a mere 6.8mm so there could some truth to it.
But, the Samsung Galaxy S7 measures at 7.9mm, in spite of not having the removable battery feature, as well. This is far thicker than even the LG G5, which has a removable battery, which measures at 7.7mm.
It seems apparent that Samsung had deceived Galaxy S6 buyers as it actually earns them less dollars to comply with what consumers want. Think of it this way: the faster the devices become unstable, the faster they would purchase a new one.
