I love creating digital content and enjoy the intricacies of marketing. In my free time, I like being outdoors and watching football. I would use a different phone every day if money was not a problem. Reach me via kevin@luram.co.ke


  1. Non removable battery is NOT a con!!. That’s a modern standard that was accepted years ago even before the wide use of USB-C.. It guarantees phone structural integrity not to mention water damage protection to a wide extent!

    • I agree with you to some extent. But it all depends on how you view it. Many manufacturers have opted for non-removable batteries mainly to achieve tighter design. Many people still prefer to have phones with replaceable batteries (and we all know that these phones are rare nowadays). This way, they will not have to switch to new phones only because of battery depreciation, and in most cases, the battery is usually the first component that begins going south
