Samsung To Bring Back Removable Batteries?

Samsung phones with removable batteries could come back in the future if the EU legislation goes ahead. All smartphone companies including the iPhones would have to comply with the law.

It would make my day if you could also follow me on:

    I’m sure companies can make lightweight, slim, waterproof smartphones with removable batteries at a reasonable cost and still make huge profits. I’m sorry, IMO, none of these phones are worth any more than $200 tops. These companies know "fools" will stand in line to get the newest and greatest (whatever they’re selling) and buy them at high cost. Wake up people !

    The LG G5 had a brilliant idea, where you can press a button and the bottom of the phone will detach from the rest of the phone, and the battery can be easily swapped. It’s a shame a lot of manufacturers haven’t ran with this idea, small companies could really distinguish their products imo

    Gaskets and screws, what’s so hard?

    The S5 had an IP rating even though it had a removable battery.. As for slimness in design, they could easily keep the same form factor and just put a smaller battery, I’d rather have a 3,000mAh removable battery than a 5,000mAh non-removable.. Besides, the LG V20 was one of the last phones to have a removable battery that was 3,200mAh and it wasn’t any thicker than the other phones at that time..

    There are phones which are water resistant with removable battery,like xcover pro from Samsung…it was just a way of reducing the lifecycle of phones by the companies.

    Alot of elitist in here who seems to think that everyone has the money to change ohones every year or couple of years. Pwee, you disgust me.

    Current batteries are usually pretty good so far. I personally want expandable memory, bring the headphone Jack back, and of course keep the waterproofing. I currently have the s9 however the Galaxy s7 Edge had all of those features plus some more and it is working smoothly still based upon what a family member who has one tells me when I call him once a week. ( he doesn’t live in Canada). 🤔 …and yes the s9 also have all of those features as well. 👍

    Ha! If true I’d be buying a Samsung next.
    Not being able to change the battery is a big turn off for me.
    Except UK is leaving the EU….
    Ah, Crap.

  10. Ivan.jokalov on June 11, 2020 at 9:43 am

    The galaxy s5 had a removable battery, but it was slim and waterproof

  11. Yahweh's Adviser on June 11, 2020 at 9:46 am

    Hahahaha please, I’m calling top grade bull shit.

    Removable battery is more useful than water proof .
    I have used several Motorola phones with removable battery. They actually fell in water but still they are working e.g.Moto G 5

  13. Ettore Fieramosca on June 11, 2020 at 9:49 am

    You Can have waterproof and removable batteries so no excuses. They Can make battery slot completely separated like scuba watches.

  14. jonnp99 on June 11, 2020 at 9:50 am

    And have you ever heard of a solid-state battery there waterproof by theirselves a solid-state battery can work underwater so if you waterproof the whole tire phone in waterproof the compartment the battery goes in you can just pop that solid-state battery in and out no problems and you wouldn’t have to worry about waterproofing

  15. Saber Cat on June 11, 2020 at 9:53 am

    Great legislation

  16. byron bibal on June 11, 2020 at 9:54 am

    I’m glad about that news.

  17. PapaGeorg10 on June 11, 2020 at 9:55 am

    If it has a removable battery I will get it. I don’t need water resistance as I am not out near water with my phone. It’s about time these cell phone manufacters stop copying apple. They should do their own thing

  18. Honk Honk on June 11, 2020 at 9:55 am

    You can waterproof with a removable battery. Its not hard

  19. Billy on June 11, 2020 at 9:55 am

    No….phones won’t lose waterproofing if the battery is replaceable….FAKE NEWS…. Samsung XCover Pro Just came out…go look!

  20. jonnp99 on June 11, 2020 at 9:59 am

    Have you ever heard of micro filming rubber it makes everything waterproof but still allows a current to pass through it so your touch screen should still be used

  21. stoeger 2 on June 11, 2020 at 10:00 am

    I don’t swim with my phone so im good

  22. Benjamin Hallquist on June 11, 2020 at 10:02 am

    "Except they wont be slim or waterproof"


    also they are pretty slim, though id rather have better battery life than a paper thin phone… I dont get the appeal of a thinner phone, the shit is already thin AF.

    If the boomers want removable batteries, they can just get a blu or something
    Or the companies can have an option with a removable back 😮 ‘Galaxy s20 B’ ~For Boomers By Boomers

  24. Edward Kenway on June 11, 2020 at 10:04 am

    Nothing is waterproof, things are water-resistance, saying that its waterproof is very wrong. Also, don’t forget that we had Galaxy S5 which had a removable battery and was also rated for IP67 water-resistance. (I was still using my S5 until it was stolen and I switched to a Oneplus device)

  25. Adam Bosak on June 11, 2020 at 10:04 am

    its why i love my note4

  26. Blood Money on June 11, 2020 at 10:05 am

    Getcha selves an LG ARISTO 2: Removable battery, waterproof… What more do you need?

  27. tonyel99 on June 11, 2020 at 10:09 am

    Yes, bring back removable batteries! Chance of dropping your phone in water…slim! Chance of your battery dying after 400 – 500 charging cycles….guaranteed!

  28. Anthony Intelisano on June 11, 2020 at 10:09 am

    My V20 is falling apart. Need a new phone and refuse to buy one without a removable battery. Flying over seas with 5% left and you’re exploring out in the middle of no where. No problem. Swap a battery. Boom instant 100%. Sure you can carry around a bulky portable charging brick but F that. Was hoping this video had a ETA on phones with removable batterys. I guess I’ll start searching to see i can find a newer phone that has a swappable battery

  29. Ant Trek on June 11, 2020 at 10:09 am

    It should be like an oversized sim card tray with an o ring so you keep water resistance

  30. MeekGroundhog21 on June 11, 2020 at 10:09 am

    I think i know how they can over come the removable battery stuff its called one time free battery replacement

  31. Han Hans on June 11, 2020 at 10:10 am

    third party battery manufacturers like zerolemon-mugen-polarcell will be very happy to produce high capacity batteries for new flagship phones.

  32. Aravind Narayan on June 11, 2020 at 10:11 am

    The option of having removable battery is cool but I prefer waterproofing and wireless charging more

  33. Mike Hunt on June 11, 2020 at 10:12 am

    Damn the EU got their stuff together!
    Big thumbs up from an American 👍

  34. abdullah abdulaziz on June 11, 2020 at 10:14 am

    Soon no one will sell shit in Europe

  35. Ricco Stewart on June 11, 2020 at 10:16 am

    Why tho who TF asked for this ?

  36. I like tea on June 11, 2020 at 10:16 am

    No it will look cheap

  37. JayRue on June 11, 2020 at 10:17 am

    They’re many smart phones that are slim and have a removable battery. The only feature that will be missing is being waterproof. I would rather have a removable battery though, IMO

  38. Peter Yianilos on June 11, 2020 at 10:17 am

    Waterproofing has absolutely nothing to do with service access. If you believe that, the phone manufacturers’ cynical marketing bs has succeeded far too easily. There are millions of high tech devices with fully sealed removable panels. That is very old technology.

  39. Lu G. on June 11, 2020 at 10:18 am

    Why we cannot have a removable battery? Planned obsolesence

  40. David Greene on June 11, 2020 at 10:18 am

    I’m still using an LG V20 with upgraded removable batteries. Knowing removable batteries are in the future, I might hold off on upgrading just a little while longer.

  41. Electronic Artis on June 11, 2020 at 10:22 am

    S 5 Samsung is waterproof and removable battery in all

  42. Daniel Lantos on June 11, 2020 at 10:23 am

    Well, I don’t agree cos you can still change your battery. You only need a heat gun and some screwdrivers. My battery lost 15% of its capacity in just 4 months as I charge my phone from 0-100 2-3 times a day but I still change my battery once a year.

  43. Bryan Wilt on June 11, 2020 at 10:25 am

    Would love for them to bring back removable batteries! I’m never excited about new phones anymore cause I know they just won’t last long cause the battery always goes first. Still rocking the v20 and love it

  44. Steve Wood on June 11, 2020 at 10:25 am

    I wish, Redmi, did the same.

  45. Lynn J on June 11, 2020 at 10:25 am

    I want a removable battery and the jack for head phones, blue tooth head phones can be expensive and need a jack for back up. I’d risk it if it’s not water proof because I had never gotten my cell phone wet

  46. julius dendawijaya on June 11, 2020 at 10:29 am

    Smartphones aren’t investments in the long run, if you can afford it go for it, its your buck. We got lotsa mid and entry level prices, why just focus on the high end s20, the A7 1st feels the same in user experience.

  48. Work in Progress on June 11, 2020 at 10:31 am

    I don’t ever need to remove my battery and neither does anyone else

  49. B. B. on June 11, 2020 at 10:32 am

    I will never buy a phone unless I can remove and replace the battery. On average I keep a phone for 5 years. I’ve had to replace the battery on a few of my phones too.

    The EU is finished, don’t worry about it…
