I still have my Samsung Galaxy s3 and the battery is still 80% effective. Just saying.

The the issue now though is, Samsung started making their phones where you can't take out the battery either. Why you think they do that?

I knew it! I friggin knew it!

Can’t wait to get a new phone, be rid of this thing and never have an iPhone again.
If you can't take the back off to switch the battery of any phone, it is best to suspicious.

The Galaxy ones you can still remove the backs apparently with some effort but the iPhones force you to keep it on. Such scammers.

I have an iPhone 4...it was given to me by a friend a couple of years
ago...I only use it as a phone...I have no problems with it.

I also want to state I have never actually bought a phone in my life
and have always "scavenged" phones from people I know when they
decide to "upgrade" their own.

I have also never purchased a single piece of furniture in my life
so far. Every thing in my house was either given to me...or "found"

In fact...one could literally call me a Scavenger.

I think that's why I want a pet Raccoon.
