Should we Buy a phone with Non-Removable battery?

Mobile battery is one of the key factors while buying a new phone. On behalf of batteries, mobiles can be divided into two categories, Removable and Non-Removable. The difference between the Removable and Non-Removable Battery is very simple. Removable batteries can be taken out of the phone, usually by opening up the back cover. Non-removable batteries will be encased within the phone’s vital components. It will be hard, it is impossible, to remove the battery without first tampering with very important parts of the phone.

When the battery dies in a non-removable unit, the main solution is to bring it to a repair store. This is a nasty surprise for people who believe they can simply remove the battery and get a new one.

Non-Removable Batteries

As the name clear that we can not remove the battery in non-removable battery phones.

Advantages of Non-Removable Batteries

  1. Fewer parts that can break: Very difficult to get inside the phone and tamper with delicate parts, that could cause damage.
  2. Fewer gaps: Literally less room for dust or dirt to access the device, and no chance for dirt to be transported in through changing a battery.
  3. Slimmer battery: Phone manufacturers can make their phone slimmer as the battery unit is designed and seal together.
  4. Single frames or ‘unibody design’: usually more solid than phones with battery ‘doors’ and often look far sleeker.

Disadvantages of Non-Removable Batteries

  1. Battery issues are terminal: This is the big disadvantage of sealed units, if your battery malfunctions or begins to fail, you’re stuck with it, as it cannot be (easily) replaced: In most cases, you’ll need to replace the whole phone for a simple battery fault.
  2. No Battery Boost: As you can’t remove the battery it’s impossible to swap it out for a spare or even upgrade to something more powerful.
  3. No hard restart: if the phone freezes as you can’t whip the battery out, you’ll just have to wait for the battery to die or hope the manual restart works.
  4. Water damage: this one is a little on both advantage and disadvantage because it’s difficult to prove, but in our experience, getting water in a non-removable sealed phone is terrible. Unlike a removable battery, where you can attempt to dry out the innards before the battery can short the phone, sealed units with non-removable batteries struggle to dry out before damage is done.

Removable Batteries

As the name clear that we can remove the battery in removable battery phones.

Advantages of Removable Batteries

  1. Hard restart: The old adage “Have you tried turning it on and off again” is often the fix for many of the world’s tech problems. Although whipping your battery out at the first sign of trouble if not often the best idea (it can be damaging in some circumstances) this ‘hard restart’ method is proven to work when all else is frozen and the manual restart won’t work.
  2. Easy to dry: If you do happen to get a little too much water on a phone, removable batteries have a slight advantage over their sealed counterparts as you can try and get said battery out before it has time to short. You can then dry the separate component and pray to the god of tech for compassion.
  3. Replaceable: Unfortunately, batteries don’t last forever, and frankly modern batteries don’t last that long at all so buying a replace is a good fix for when your old power source is just not holding its charge.

Disadvantages of Removable Batteries

  1. Untraceable: this might be an advantage for some, but for most people, if your phone is stolen and the battery is removed, it’s effectively untraceable (digitally).
  2. Damage: removing a battery usually requires the phone to be literally cracked open, meaning the internal working of the phone have a higher chance of damage or contact with dust and dirt.
  3. Size: Phones with removable batteries tend to have a slightly larger frame size as the battery is not sealed or manufactured into the closed case.
