I Guess I'm kinda lost as to the point of worrying about things like this? Smartphone batteries have gotten better and better and are far from the days when we used to actually carry around extra batteries because we had to! LoL ~ And generally new devices seem to last the “practical” life of the phone, even with more of us keeping our devices longer.
Most people lack the skills necessary to disassemble even a non-glass backed phone without damaging it! LoL ~ And most simply upgrade after 2-3 years use max for the latest tech updates…
Those that make buying decisions based on being able to physically break down and repair their own device are really just a small group of super nerds that feel every little thing should be made for their ease of use… Which to me is just ridiculous, and I'm one of those super nerds! LoL
These devices continue to get more and more powerful yet everything is crammed into nice neat pocket size packages! There has to be trade offs for all this power in such small packages…
