What's the point of making the battery non-removable in phones?
>>
you know exactly why
>>
>>69757741
CIA niggers
>>
im sure you can guess that
>>
>>69757734
Why not? I mean, it's not like you have to worry about modern batteries too much like you would about NiCd or NiMH
>>
>>69757769
To replace it when it loses its capacity after many years of use.

Can't do a 10s recharge with a non-removable battery

>>69757961
>it's old, better toss this perfectly functional device in the trash
Enjoy wasting your money
>>
>>69757961
Why should he? Spending money needlessly is a great way to become poor. If the phone is otherwise perfectly usable, it's idiotic to spend money for what at that point is little more than an overpriced fashion item.

My phone is five years old and still going strong. Could I buy a new one? Yes. Is there a point? Hell no.
>>
>>69757815
Recharge once a day, your battery is fucked within 2 years as that is over 700 cycles and it might even be worse than that depending on how much your phone is exposed to body heat
>>
>>69757815
> How many years is that?
2 to 4. Less if you use QC.
>>69757815
You don't need to "store" them, just freeze your phone in the back pocket a couple of times.

You're an idiot. No, buying a new phone on it's own won't make you poor, but a wasteful lifestyle will.

You can spend your money on whatever you like, but don't come crying to me if you end up sucking hobo dick for money.
>>

What's QC?

What'd you do to recharge it so frequently, play games on it all the time?

Quick charge with higher currents.
>>
>>69757734
So you have to buy a new phone when the battery brakes

that "something" refers also to charging habits.
Instead of having to inconvenience myself by babying my phone to avoid its battery degrading quickly, I prefer having a phone that has a battery I can swap cheaply when it degrades.
Also: An used phone with a removable battery is great value, just buy a new battery and it's back to 100% functionality. An used phone with a non-removable battery might as well be e-waste.

My V20 battery feels shot. It's about 18 months old. Original replacements cannot be bought anymore and I am not into fakes and Chong Nong Pong batteries for housefire reasons.

I read your post and am replying to it from the pool. How jelly are you?
Anyway, I always thought this answer was correct, but then it was pointed out to me that the galaxy s5 had waterproofing and a removable battery, so I don't know.

I used to care about this kind of shit, but I don't anymore. My previous phone had a removable battery and my current one doesn't and so is life.

Might be because I live in swedistan but the phone batteries of literally everyone I know are in some state of fucked after 2-3 years of use. My note 4 didn't even last the 15 minute bus ride to my university 1.5-2 years after purchase and the genuine battery I replaced it with ended up in a similar (but not as bad) state after about a year and the one I replaced it with is holding on for its fucking life dying at 30~% after slowing down to a crawl at 60%.

Not exactly. A hypothetical used apple phone would still be shit as they throttle later models with "upgrades"
>>
>>69757815
My LG G4 battery was shot after just a year, it was turning off whenever I went outside (with temperatures under 0°C). If it wasn't for easy replacement, I wouldn't have it replaced, and I'd have to buy another phone. I also have two 8Ah extended batteries, which I charge in an external charger, and swap whenever one is at low percentage.
>>
>>69758162
Doesn’t matter what you are doing, 2 years is unacceptable plain and simple
>>
>>69758585
The chink shit works. I'm on number 4 with my v10
>>
>>69758868
IIRC the throttling was a dumbfuck attempt to extend the life of a degrading battery, and it went away when the battery was replaced. Of course, Apple being Apple, you could only replace the battery in an Authorised Apple Service(TM).
>>
>>69758162
>recharging once a day (overnight)
>why do you charge your phone so frequently
Maybe if they stopped making these fucking things so thin and make the batteries bigger like they should I wouldn’t have to recharge “so frequently”. And that’s not “frequent” charging. That’s normal charging from a normal work day. I’m sorry you don’t have a job or any friends anon.

They're not removable, because it says so on a label? I owned 3 different "non-removeable battery" phones in the past. It took me 1-5minutes on each phone to remove and install a new baterry.
Fucking sheeps.
>>
>>69757734
- better water resistance
- gives more room for a bigger battery and/or more components, as bigger battery = fewer charge cycles used per time frame = longer lifespan, or at least that's how it should be
- newer phones are power efficient enough that the user shouldn't require a battery swap in the middle of the day, unless they're playing games or something

these also introduce a problem where the battery can't be replaced without special tools, since they're often glued shut, and even then that depends if a replacement battery is available for sale
>>
>>69757734
Planned obsolescence and a mild improvement in aesthetics.

>as if you didn't know

>>69757992
A 6 year old phone is not perfectly functional unless you literally only use it for phone calls, in that case get a flip phone as it would be more secure than that piece of junk.

The fuck dude, most phones today are at like 60% if you just lay it down the whole day. After 10-12 hours of sometimes looking into signal and reading some news in safari my battery is at 10% or lower.

My S5 is on it's second battery. All i did was wipe & install the original rom again & new oem battery (hard to find at this point) and it's like new. It's only (((updates))) and a fucked battery that make our phones age, otherwise they'd probably last a decade. My last phone was a 6 year old nokia lumia, and it was still fine with just a replacement battery thanks to Microsoft never bloating/updating shit.

That's a side effect. The real reason is so even if you have no reason to ever upgrade, eventually your battery will wear out and you'll have to.

What do you know about phone engineering
no one cares about removable batteries, it's not something that you need to address daily
if your phone's battery needs changing, just use a heat gun and open the back with a guitar pic or something and replace it yourself, or get your local repair guy to do it if you're not an absolute poorfag
>>
Thinner batteries that can be nonstandard shapes and put things like the controller PCB into whatever space is they need, instead of inside the battery unit itself.
I imagine it's also far cheaper to have wireless charging built into the phone instead of having to make backplates that the coils built in.

Silly goyim. Why would you want to replace the battery in that dinky old phone of yours when you could spend $1500 on the latest and greatest piece of kit with a WHOPPING 16GB of storage and a lack of the old, disgustingly outdated headphone jack?

Bought a refurb v20 for 200 burgers. Bought a 10 amp/hr battery for another 50. 250 burgers and it lasts for 3 to 4 days without charging. Feels good man. Enjoy paying 800 dollars for a device that will die in 2 years

I'm in the same boat. My V20's battery is perfectly fine unless I'm outside in the cold for too long, then it will shit the bed. Bring it back inside and let it warm up, and it'll be okay again (albeit with half the charge it had before)

Even if the batteries are few torx screws away from being changed, it doesn't mean there are replacements available. Especially with how much phone models there are today, replacements can be impossible to find in few years.

You actually have to get different regulatory qualifications if the battery isn't internal and shipping is handled differently.

Doesn't mean they are avaliable or that the process is actually practical. A lot of time phones are glued shut and you have to permanently fuck up your water proofing and other aspects of the phone.
T. Moto x pure user who would keep this thing for another 3 years if I could. One plus 5t is in the mail, non removable battery and it doesn't even have water proofing.
>>
>>69757734
There's no such thing as non removable batteries, although its a hassle if its a device where you need a heatgun to take the phone apart. Companies do it so you buy a new phone quicker

You can't waterproof a phone unless it's a single slab of glass without any ports. Water resistance is a meme. Galaxy s5 has the ip67 certificate while still having a removable battery and a headphone jack.
>>
>>69768690
>battery cooling
kek. And heat is not the only issue there, by accelerating chemical reactions you are most likely increasing the rate of unwanted reactions that can hurt your cells. Fast charging should not be used as a replacement for regular charging, it's just for emergencies.
>>
>>69757734
A mix between programmed obsolescence and to reduce the amount of mechanical pieces by just tabbing the battery with a nickel strip as I think they do on iPhones.
Waterproofing is a complete lie, phones with or without battery die when they are submerged.
