I saw it, granted it wasn't on PhoneArena, but it isn't much of a big deal to me. I'd prefer to have a removable battery over expandable storage any day. I have no "insider connections" so I can't be any help in that regard.

Agree.

I too would prefer a removable battery and external storage but since owning the nexus 5 and nexus 6 I have adapted. Between cloud storage and the ability to plug in USB sticks I am good. Plus one of the reasons manufacturers have sought nonremovable batteries is so they could increase the mAh while maintaining the slim shape as well as being able to make the device more dust and water resistant.

As far as external storage, we all know the reasoning behind that is to sell cloud storage space. Plus I will say I have had a few external SD cards fail on me so I'm as broken up about not having them. In other words, it will not make or break a decision for one device over the other.

I'm kind of the opposite. I don't do cloud storage as most of my data is game storage or music and videos. So why would use up my data retrieving that info? And on most models non removable batteries aren't that hard to replace. Also if slim was the name of the game why would I want a giant USB stick protruding from the phone?

Your situation is different. The few times I use extra storage is if I have a file I was working on for work and it's saved on my USB stick. Most of the time I'll be in church or doing something when I'll get an email that someone needs a copy of the file or I forgot to attach the file. In church I'll plug in my USB stick that is on my keyring and use es file explorer and attached the file in an email, send it to whoever, then get back to enjoying the service.

But for gamers I understand wanting more space.

With the SanDisk flash drive for android phones... I just make a backup of my phone.. Easy as can be.. A 64 gig was only slightly more than 20$..
