    So rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will have a glass back a non removable battery.

    I own an Xperia Z3 with a non removable battery and it doesn't bother me. Will a non removable battery be a deal breaker for you?

    I don't keep a phone long enough for it to bother me. I can see those with multiple year contracts having some concern.

    Yeah you can't really compare other phone's battery lives to the Z3. That phone is the beast in longevity.

    Yes and hell yes. I had a phone with a non-removable battery that went bad on me. If I'd wanted it repaired, I'd have had to ship the whole phone away and waited for it to be repaired. After that, I swore no more non-removable batteries ever again. I'm dismayed that so many phone makers do this now. Just because Apple does something, doesn't mean everyone must emulate them.

    I replaced the battery on my wife's iPhone. There is a tool available on eBay to open the case without any damage. I would assume the same can be don with other manufactures phones.
