Will future smartphones have user-replaceable batteries?


Based on a report on fd.nl, it seems that the European Union is working on a proposal which requires smartphones to have user-replaceable batteries. This is due to the fact that old and worn out batteries are usually the main reason why users swap out their old smartphone for a newer device.

However, having replaceable batteries on a smartphone could have various drawbacks such as not having water and dust resistance. Not only that, but the battery capacity could be much smaller as well due to the fact that the manufacturers need to attach connectors so that it can interface with the device it is connected to.

With all that said, there is no confirmation in regards to whether this proposal will actually be approved. How do you feel if you have a smartphone that comes with a user-replaceable battery? Let us know on our Facebook page and for more updates like this, stay tuned to TechNave.com.
