Something like this happened almost as soon as I got a phone without a removable battery.
 
Just updated my phone, and my battery is at -1094832612%...

I have started searching for a new phone. My predicament is that I am pretty current with the field as far as #Android  phones go and see none that meet my needs. 

What makes the search so difficult is that I find myself in the position of being tied to a stylus. I use my phone as my note pad, and, working in a low-tech parts store where many things are still mainly done on paper my #GalaxyNote3  has been a godsend. Instead of falling out of my shirt pocket when I bend down to pick up parts (agricultural repair parts), my notes are searchable. Having the stylus has revolutionized the way I take and keep notes.

Hearing this I am sure many would recommend staying with the #GalaxyNote5  or getting the #GalaxyNote6  when it comes out. But, there is a reason I haven't upgraded already. The note 5 has no removable battery.

Now, while some might view this as an inescapable fact of owning a smartphone these days I view it differently. I depend on my removable batteries. I use my phone too much for me not to. Notes, calls, emails, texts from customers, product videos, etc, I am always using my phone at work. A workplace, I might add that has very poor signal reception as it is out where agriculture actually takes place. Though I must say +Verizon does a nice job getting us signal in Smallville USA it just isn't the nicest signal situation for a cell phone's battery.

I feel a definite need for spare batteries. They mean I can swap one out and keep going. Couple of minutes and you're topped off.

I also feel a need for my stylus, and having it stored in the phone is the epitome of convenient. 

Alas, it seems that +Samsung Mobile  is going to make the #GalaxyNote6  without a removable battery all because they want to make the phone look appealing out of a case, a case that someone who uses their phone primarily for work, working on concrete floors no less, would not do without. 

Is there a solution to this dilemma? I know I'm just one customer but I cannot be the only one.  

I know I like that +LG USA Mobile is keeping the removable battery, my only obstacle in choosing the #LG   #G5  is the stylus. #Samsung  has some great apps with the #Note  series that bring a lot of utility. 

It would be really nice if #Google  would make a #Nexus  with a stylus and tie it in with #GoogleKeep  but they don't seem any more interested in building a phone with a removable battery again than #Apple  or #Microsoft  is with their #WindowsPhone  .

I love #Android  and I love my #Note3  but I'm putting all options on the table when it comes to looking for a replacement, which I am becoming increasingly convinced is going to be needed soon.

I just rated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice a "Must Go!" on Fandango. What did you think of it?
Mankind faces a new threat as Batman (Ben Affleck) embarks on a personal vendetta against Superman (Henry Cavill).

I cannot speak for anyone but me and my wife but I must voice how let down I am by +Samsung Mobile​'s new #GalaxyS6.

No removable battery... The entire reason why I have stuck with Samsung since the days of the Samsung Epic (many a moon ago).

I do not care about metal frames... After all, when it's in a case (which it is at least 80% of the time) I won't be able to tell.

What do I care about? Function. Utility.

No removable media (SD cards) I can live with but without a removable battery there's just not enough there to convince me not to switch.

My wife has been waiting to switch from her #GalaxyNote2 to a new phone. She's never liked the #Note3 and so doesn't much like the #Note4. She doesn't use the pen much anymore and is looking to downsize her monstrously big phone. She was waiting for the #S6 with hope that it would be the phone for her but she's not going to become a wall-hugger just because the #ptb's say she shouldn't have the option to have spare batteries.

Talk about a spoiler. +Samsung Mobile​ I really wish you wouldn't forget about those of us who don't want to be wall-huggers...

Very reasonably priced. Staff left much to be desired, I imagine more training will be happening since we did speak to management. What happened: we waited 13 minutes at the table to be helped, we spoke to three employees as the walked by, made eye contact with two and they looked away, but none helped us. Thankfully the manager walked by and we snagged him. He took our drink order. A lady named Denise then came by and asked if we had been helped, not sure who she was but she was top-notch, she became our server. The food was excellent, my wife's medium-well steak was perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned, no steak sauce necessary. My ribs were the best I've ever had in this town. Very tender, very well seasoned, not over sauced. My long island drink was good. The bathroom was well taken care of, of course this is a brand new restaurant. One more thing, the restaurant used a text messaging service to notify us when our table was ready, good because of the long wait (45 min). I've seen this in places like Savannah but never before in Albany. Over all I give them 4 stars and will definitely be back.
