HardwareZone: With the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 all recently hitting the market, you may be facing the dilemma of which flagship smartphone to buy. We've reviewed all three, but now it's time to compare them head-to-head.
the reason im not a fan of the Xperia or HTC (new ones) is coz it has built in batteries. the thing is once the battery becomes stale (due to over-charging or many charge cycles), HTC and Sony don't replace batteries. now i know batteries last fine for about 2 years and then its time to upgrade so this really isn't a big deal for most but i tend to use my cellphones (especially the flagship ones) for much longer than 2 years. once im done, i hand them down to other family members. when they replace the battery with a new one, its almost like a new phone. i cant do that with built-in battery phones. after the battery has reached its lifespan, so has the phone. which sucks.
