Re: do all you precious "no battery swap" luddites

It will apparently come as a surprise to you, but some people keep their phone for more than three months. When you get into multi-year territory, the daily recharging (because forget about actually using a phone for more than 8 hours these days) and you will find, after two to three years, that your battery needs replacing.

That is why us luddites want to be able to replace the battery. We don't want a new phone, the one we have is good enough and we want to keep using it.
