"despite having a removable back panel, the battery is non-removable."does it have a micro SD? Thats whats important here.
It does have a micro-SD slot (up to 64GB, no support for 128GB) but does not have a removable battery.
If only they would. Instead they force you to use their service at an extra $50+ a month and over your 2yr contract you'll pay an extra $1,200. Even buying an off contract GS6 or One M9 would only cost you $600-800. To me it's like they just over charge you.when my carrier keeps giving them away for free.
are you seriously complaining about a $200 smartphone with these benchmark speeds? its easy to overlook "removable battery" when it's only $200 OFF CONTRACT. and it has the same GPU as a iphone 6, and it's CPU is no slouch.. The cpu is amazing in this thing. Look at the battery life on that 14nm process.It does have a micro-SD slot (up to 64GB, no support for 128GB) but does not have a removable battery.
No sale for me, these are basic features they are removing for the sake of forcing us to pay more later; if we could upgrade our phones, we'd be less likely to buy new ones.
