Yeah I'm sure the battery if fine for now but since we're stuck with these phones for 2 years, after about a year and half and countless recharges, you won't be able to get thru lunch without a charger nearby and since it's a non removable battery, you're up a creek. As for the SD card, I think the answer is just like the guy mentioned above. Why offer a SD card slot for free when you can charge $100 extra for a 32GB "upgrade" of internal memory that costs them about as much extra as a couple cups of coffee. I think it's as simple as that. I don't buy the multiuser excuse cause while I get some of their arguments, why not offer consumers the choice? I'd even be up for paying $10-20 more for SD support. I will never buy a phone that doesn't have SD support as long as there are such phones available that is. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 using Tapatalk 2.
