It is over double the battery life with both LTE and Wifi, how is that a lie?

As for talk time, cool, great for people who talk on their phones.

On a trip I just pack a power cord, no big deal.

Like I've said before, I think its fine that there are phones with a replaceable battery. The tradeoff for faster hardware with better apps and more battery life works out for me. If there was a phone with all of the above, and a replaceable battery life without compromising size, THEN it'd be worth talking about for me.

How? Right here. "If having double the battery life "

It does not have double the battery life. It has even less talk time than the ONE phone you compare it against and double the LTE browsing time. You are cherry picking and you know it. Why you are deliberately trying to falsify things while calling yourself unbiased is beyond me, but I will call you on it every time I see it.

Dude, you can't quote out of context to try and win an argument, it doesn't work that way!

"It is over double the battery life with both LTE and Wifi "

You omitted the bold part to try and make a point, a point that I wasn't even trying to make. Come on dude!

If you want to bring up talk time then that's fine, but don't try and twist what I said specifically about LTE and wifi browsing time into something else. Even then there is only about a 20% difference in talk time versus about a 2x difference in browse time.

I'm not even bringing up CPU and GPU performance to be nice. I don't know why you're getting so bent out of shape over all this anyway, other phones will eventually catch up in most specs. HTC is already doing much better with LTE (7 hours or so) now that they have the newer LTE chips that the iPhone 5 also uses.

GPU performance, app quality, resistance to malware, and timely OS updates are things that won't happen on Android hardware anytime soon, but you can be sure that CPU performance and battery life will catch up shortly. Plus you have bigger screens and the other things that come with larger chassis (replaceable batteries and SD card slots). Other Android handsets like the Nexus 4 are dropping those things that fans like to brag about (Flash support, replaceable batteries, SD cards, etc) as they get smaller and more integrated, but again those choices that bigger phones give will still be there.

Like I always say, pros and cons to every platform.

Really? Cuz that's not what I read. "I like carrying around as little as possible, sorry. If having double the battery life means that I don't have to carry extra batteries around, that's awesome"

You are freakin delusional. Twisting words and acting like you werent twisting words, skewing facts and acting like you're not isnt fooling anyone. Whatever... I'm done with feeding your trolling on this.

Yes, I don't like carrying around extra things like batteries. If you do then that's totally cool!

Choices, decisions, these are things that actually exist and people are free to make them. I gladly trade more battery life for not needing to carry more batteries, but obviously there are people who prefer the opposite in real life, and that's totally cool.

Again, choices!

Sorry that everything is so black & white in your world.
