Flagship smartphone manufacturers are slowly moving from offering phones with removable battery packs to non-removable units, however, one company that has refused to go down this channel is LG.
Samsung took this channel when it released the Galaxy S6 series and Galaxy Note 5 last year. This was the first time this was happening and as a result, the phone had a mixed reception. Despite so many complaints coming from all parts of the world, Samsung stuck to its guns and this year, the Galaxy S7 featured the same non-removable battery unit. On the other hand, LG G5 comes in with a removable battery unit, just like its predecessors, the LG G4, and LG G3 as well as the phablet LG V10.
While LG spare batteries usually cost around $40 for the LG G4, LG G3, and the larger LG V10, the company is now offering them at a cut price of just $15. This is a great offer that you should definitely take advantage of, but the sad part is that there is no room for LG G5 users. With a spare battery, you will be sure of increased autonomy as far as your LG handset is concerned.
The main reason why most flagship OEMs are ditching removable battery is the fact that users are interested I stylish devices that feature very slim designs. With a slim device, there is, for sure, little room for stocking a huge battery unit. Despite this, the LG G4, LG G3, and the LG V10 still feature slim enough designs to make them worthy contenders in the flagship arena.
More discounts on LG G4 and LG V10 accessories
In addition to offering users with discounted spare batteries for their LG flagships, the South Korean tech giant is also offering users of last year’s LG G4 and LG V10 the chance to grab a charging cradle for a discounted price of just $15. It gets even better for those who want to get both a charging cradle and spare battery for their LG G4 or V10. The company will be offering these two for just $20, which is, of course, a sweeter deal than getting the two devices individually.
Of course, this is a move by LG to try and clear out some company stock, maybe in readiness for newer stuff. However, there is no mention of when this promotion will end or rather how long it will be around. In short, hurry while stock still lasts.
