I have been seeing and hearing tons of complaints (especially while comparing iPhone to other phones) about how you can't pop the battery out of the iPhone, and how you can't replace it yourself, and so on. I am curious as to why this is such a problem... Here's why I think it's no big deal at all... -The battery is something that has to be replaced once or twice every few years, so why do you need that constant access all year long? -On my phone (and many other phones I'm sure) this is an annoying feature, and I accidentally pop it out all the time (and therefore it shuts off) -Without it, the iPhone looks better (no ugly back to it), looks less cheap, and less like other phones -Without the battery compartment and release mechanisms etc. the iPhone has more space inside for stuff (like a bigger battery) and has one less thing that can break There's probably very few people who agree with me (besides Apple's engineers), and I'm just curious as to why it's such a big issue, and why it is always used as a point when attacking iPhone (or when complaining about your iPhone) Let me know your thoughts on the subject.
