Leaked slide shows impressive specifications
A slide has leaked that shows the LG Optimus G Pro smartphone, the follow-up to the
. The Optimus G Pro’s headliner feature is a new five-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080.
A 1.7 GHz processor said to be the Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 powers the device. The smartphone is also said to feature 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, LTE connectivity, 13MP rear camera, and a 3000 mAh battery. Other specifications that have leaked around the web claim that the smartphone will run Android Jelly Bean for the operating system and weigh in at about 160 g.
The phone features both One-Seg and NOTTV functionality that only works in Japan. We’ll no doubt see the Optimus G Pro on our shores sometimes this year, although without the TV functionality.

You know, I bought my Galaxy S III because it had an SD slot and removable battery when competing phones at the time didn't (HTC One, iPhone, etc) but I have yet to expand the storage beyond my 32GB internal or bother removing the battery for any reason...
I've rooted it and do CWM backups and sideloading from the internal NAND without a problem. Also, battery life is improved when not using SDHC, as well as performance is improved (nothing is faster than the internal memory.)
So there just isn't a benefit for most people to have removable components. The average lifetime of smartphones is <2 years, way before the battery will fail.

I've put a 32GB SDHC in my S3 and it's pretty much full.
it has my music collection and a few videos. Things I can get by without if i need to put something important on extra storage in the mSD slot.
That way I don't chew up internal storage with stuff I can live without short term.
As for the battery, there is a reason most warranties included with phones (and laptops!) exclude the battery from standard 12-24 month warranties (usually limiting the battery to 6 months) and why the battery is generally excluded from extended warranties.
Batteries tend to fail after about 12 months. And by fail I mean noticeable reduction in battery capacity. It's quite common to start noticing a slight reduction in battery life after 6 months.
By integrating a non-replaceable battery into a device, you pretty much guarantee reducing it's life to 2 years. You reduce the aftermarket possibilities of selling the phone on or handing it down to the kids.
I've never had a phone that i've used for 2 years where I haven't had to replace the battery at least once (usually around the 18 month timeframe when I've been looking for a new phone but get overwhelmed by the options and decide to wait another 6 months for the next generation).

I'm guessing you've never used an iPhone then.
