Phone non-removable battery

Postby germainebull » 12 Mar 2018, 08:54

I'm thinking of buying a phone.
I've however discovered that the Nokia 2, my preferred device, comes with a non-removable battery.
Given that phone batteries usually spoil, thus necessitating replacement, I'm hesitant about going for this model.

I thus need you advice on the pros and cons of a non-removable battery.
Further, if possible, please comment on the Nokia 2 in particular.

You should be able to find a video on YT about how to replace a battery. I have no idea why manufacturers make it impossible to change a battery without having to take a phone apart (as opposed to simply popping the caseback off with a fingernail) - apart from to screw you for more money.

I think, it's not impossible to change bettery. Please take your mobile into mobile mechanic shop. If they have available bettery, they will change it instant. Or they'll take 3 days to change this.

Your post is a useful eyeopener.
I was at a complete loss as to how a phone could have a non-removable battery.
Now I know this is due to a 'not so smart' decision by manufacturers.

I have had a phone with a non removable battery they are good yes when they are still in operation but when the battery life dies you can say goodbye to it because removing the battery will mean dismantling the whole thing and we know too well what that does to a phone. The best thing to do is to just get one that has a removable battery.

The phone I currently have is a samsung galaxy and the battery is sealed. The only way to change the battery is to bring it to a retailer store of the company that you have your contract with. If you have a prepaid plan, Go to any electronic store and they should be able to help you with any question you might have :)

I don't know why, but some smartphone models don't have removable batteries :( I don't like that because replace the battery are harder... I don't have a smartphone like that but have a tablet... and the batteries of my tablet swelled :lol:
I opened the tablet and removed the batteries... now I work with the tablet with no batteries (only conected to ac).
However when that happen with a smartphone, probably the best solution solution is buy another smartphone... or find someone who know how to replace it...

My phone is also having a non-removable battery and I really regret having bought this phone and I won't recommend anyone to buy such a phone.

I just upgraded to a google pixel. This also has a non removable battery. I guess it is their way of either making you upgrade to a newer phone or buy a battery from a store that has to put the battery in for you :)
