Samsung mobiles with removable batteries
Samsung Geeks | On 05, Jan 2017
Samsung mobiles with removable batteries have become something of a rarity these days.
It would seem Samsung have chosen to forfeit the practicality of a removable battery for a design that is more pleasing-to-the-eye. Ultra-sleek metal casing and streamlined aesthetics do create a more premium-looking product.
As well as providing fans with pretty handsets, Samsung also wanted to improve water resistance in the S7 models. Sealing a modular battery proved to be a bit of a pain, so Samsung introduced the unibody design.
But many outspoken Samsung fans have mourned the loss of modular battery compartments. And now, in this post-exploding-Note-7 world, some people are asking whether Samsung needs to reconsider removable batteries inside their flagships.
With the advent of the S8 approaching in 2017, there has been much speculation as to whether Samsung will include a removable battery in their new flagship mobile. However, the crux of the matter is, Samsung mobiles with removable batteries are no longer the norm.
So, being helpful as ever, we put together a comprehensive list of ALL the Samsung batteries that have removable batteries.
Here it is, the complete list of Samsung mobiles with removable batteries…
