    better to buy a new 1000 dollar phone than pay 150 to replace the battery?

  3. Paton Cavaney on June 20, 2020 at 10:09 am

    It’s funny that throwaway-phones, aka Burner Phones, have removable batteries.

  4. Latrell Jennings on June 20, 2020 at 10:14 am

    I hear people use the excuses all the time that they’re glad that phones don’t have removable backs anymore because removable phones don’t have water resistance even though this and the Galaxy S5 are clear proof that you don’t need a glass back for water resistance. And this is IP68 at that. That’s impressive.

    Question: would this phone have full Samsung Pay support (MST) or just Google Pay NFC? I know it has a built in POS so…

    I’m still rocking a note 4 the xcover pro is an upgrade to the note 4. I love the removable battery and I plan on getting this phone when or if it comes here.

    Jerome When I looked at this phone a couple of days ago I immediately think to myself "I wish I was OEM to make phone That people love and that is extremely portable and handy" like for Example Screen bezells to be thin only to accommodate 2 big speakers on front of display, and camera on bezzel also, OLED Display of course that is no brainer, QHD+ Display but can be set to FHD+, 5000-6000mAh battery, Headphone Jack with QuadDac going all in, 45W fast charging would be sufficient, 1 camera on front 40MP but to use 4 to 1 Pixel Binning like Samsung will do in S20 Ultra, 3 cameras on back 1st 108Mp like S20 Ultra, 2nd 12MP F/2.0 Ultra Wide, 3rd telephoto same as S20 Ultra and price under 800€. It would sell extremely well.

    Looks like a replacement for my s8 active but only when it decides to stop working

  9. John C on June 20, 2020 at 10:19 am

    Have one on order, as of yesterday, May 12… expecting it in a few days. This is why I bought the XCover Pro – replaceable battery! My old work Android phone from 8 years ago came with an extra battery. Never had to worry. My Galaxy S6 Active, which I bought in January 2016, loses it’s charge after a half-day, or quicker, if I’m using it to watch video. I’m always charging the thing, and I can’t even find a place that will install a new battery ("Did you say the ‘Active’ model? Sorry.") This new rugged phone, mid-range specs and all, is just what I want. Why should I shell out a grand for a phone every couple of years just because the battery is dying?

    I need this phone I would like to have this phone Samsung needs to release in the US I don’t want the $1,000 phone I simply need a $500 phone that works

  11. Jon Disnard on June 20, 2020 at 10:26 am

    I’ve replaced the battery on my Nexus 6p possibly 5 or 6 times, about once every 9 months. I agree with about everything you spoke. Replacing battery is a pain, but it keeps my investment going.

  12. Van Dog Trailer on June 20, 2020 at 10:27 am

    "My heart is full." Nailed it, bro. I always thought it was a bad trade to give away battery sustainment for the ability to drop it in the pool. I’ve enjoyed my Pixel, but I’m all in for this!!!

  13. jesuisravi on June 20, 2020 at 10:28 am

    I wouldn’t consider buying a phone without the option to easily swap out the battery. No more built-in obsolescence! You can get it on Ebay.

  14. Sang Yong on June 20, 2020 at 10:30 am

    I’ll buy it. I like the removable battery.
    New battery= almost a new phone.
    I noticed that all my smartphones went a bit laggy and slower when the battery started to die.
    My old note 4 got really slow. After the new battery it became very fast. Like a new phone….
    To buy a new phone every year is unsustainable sh****. We shouldn’t support that.

  15. Invincible Speaker on June 20, 2020 at 10:32 am

    I too used to do the full battery swap back in the day. Can’t until this phone releases I’m getting two extra batteries and a battery charger

  16. uraidodot on June 20, 2020 at 10:35 am

    Ebay + $50 = battery swap. Why new phone?

  17. burgerpatty on June 20, 2020 at 10:38 am

    Honestly, i don’t care much about the ip rating. I had none of those before the trend of non-removable battery trend started. I lived, my phone lived a longer life.

  18. David Mann on June 20, 2020 at 10:38 am

    I quite like the plastic back instead of glass. Plastic does everything the glass one does but adds durability and removable battery

  19. angel castillo on June 20, 2020 at 10:39 am

    Typing this on a LG V20 with a removable battery. Will upgrade when I can buy one with more RAM and still have the same capabilities like IR blaster, removable SD card, and OEM external battery charger.

  20. Larry Hoffman on June 20, 2020 at 10:43 am

    Verizon in the USA now has the phone!

  21. naxel37 on June 20, 2020 at 10:44 am

    Not a fan of Samsung but they get a thumbs up for doing this. I still got the lg v20 just for the removal battery. My girls basically having to trade in her Iphone for an 11 just because it wont charge properly.

  22. Thomas M on June 20, 2020 at 10:48 am

    I will get one when is available, and on tmo network. In fact I’ll get three.

  23. Northpole on June 20, 2020 at 10:48 am

    Nice Vid. I’m still using my Galaxy Note4. I have 3 batteries and will keep it until it dies.

  24. Heron Matthew on June 20, 2020 at 10:51 am

    Truth…

  25. Jorge Ramos on June 20, 2020 at 10:51 am

    Bruh, I still use my v20 BECAUSE of its design to have a removable battery, and more importantly, allow me to have an extended battery. No factory battery has EVER lasted anywhere close to its advertised life with me. And after the Note 7, I wasn’t about to touch another Samsung phone unless they did removable batteries.
    I was fully expecting to have to basically use my V20 until I got to where I’d have to port my number to a landline because I *despise* these sealed battery phones that can’t even last a month without half the advertised battery life already being gone. Phone makers making their phones sealed like this basically just makes me NOT want to even look at them anymore.

  26. Brian Lau on June 20, 2020 at 10:56 am

    The Galaxy S5 was IP67 and that phone is ancient by tech standards. These are just excuses.
    Would you buy a phone and pay $60 a year for custom software software features (camera), OS updates, free games/apps, subscription service, custom skin/case, etc) instead of buying a new phone each year? Think of a super future proof spec’ed out phone like OnePlus and 4 years of updates and add ons, and an updated hardware every 2-3 years.

  27. jack fields on June 20, 2020 at 10:57 am

    It is coming to the u.s.

  28. madrabbitt on June 20, 2020 at 10:58 am

    i was sad that the active 8 was the end of the active line. These are going to be our replacements for the active 8’s still in service

  29. LH3 on June 20, 2020 at 10:58 am

    The Galaxy s5 had removable battery and it was water resistant

  30. A D on June 20, 2020 at 10:59 am

    Its available unlocked on the Microsoft store online for $500.

  31. RNL JHN TPRRÑS on June 20, 2020 at 11:01 am

    removable battery with IP68 rating📓😲😲😲😮😮😮😮😯😯😯

  32. Ambardo on June 20, 2020 at 11:02 am

    YESS!!! THANK YOU BRO! Thank you! You actually acknowledged that Samsung brought back the removable batteries!… I was soooo confused and wondering as to why these other videos covering the brand new Samsung Xcover Pro was treating *the fact that SAMSUNG had the tech that was slowly going extinct year by year brought back* as if this wasn’t anything to even mention or if it isn’t that much of a big deal! I actually went back to Samsung’s XCover Pro reveal trailer, just to make sure that I saw what I saw… that they were actually the two words: "Removable" and "Battery" put together alongside each other once in the frickin video. I thought I was going crazy. 😕

    …Once again bro, THANK YOU! I’ve already subscribed already! 😀😁😎✌️

  33. Daniel Bemis on June 20, 2020 at 11:02 am

    almost all my phones had a removal battery. Only the LG V30 and LG G8 phones have none removable. Ill have to switch to this if the camera is good and its sold in USA.
