It’s a good thing they’re not doing it w/ their iPads too because then they’d be affecting more of their customers this way.

FUD

Did you actually read the article? This is a good thing. As the battery dies the phone will shut down under high load to protect itself. This smooths out the load to maintain functioning. It does slow down the phone but keeps it operational.

Removable battery. I won’t buy a phone without one.


#5

That really really narrow your choice now. I can’t think of a current smart phone, maybe beside HTC that have removable battery.


#6

I’m still on my LG G5. But you’re right, I’m not sure what I’ll do for my next phone.


#7

LG V20

The Moto E4 ($29, after PM-ing FamilyDollar price against Walmart’s $39) does have a removable battery. I know, its not in the same league though :slight_smile:


#9

For $29 or $39? It’s a very solid phone.


#10

My WM doesn’t price match but it is still great for $39


#11

I’d rather they optimize the battery life rather than just sunset them.

It’s last years cutting edge for $29. A 5" edge-to-edge screen, when the new Apple 8 only has a 4.5" screen. Tons of internal memory. Ck out the owner’s manual. I mean, what doesn’t it do ? I don’t use it, but it has the fingerprint scanner, which many say is a lot better than Apples.

I really couldn’t be happier without spending twenty times as much for the latest Samsung or Pixel.
