*oh and thanks to the mod that dropped in and burned the troll...
Actually, I don't care about removable batteries at all. I haven't once had to remove my battery to replace it with another and it actually makes for a cumbersome task if you use a TPU case like I do, with a nice snug fit. Removing the battery weakens the battery door of the EVO 3D as well as the snug fit of the TPU case. Bring on the unibody design HTC!
I've been using a TPU case since the phone was released and I almost never plug it in, I almost always just swap batteries. It takes about 5 seconds to swap (minus the reboot time) and my back cover is still like new and the case still fits great. As long as you don't go yanking/stretching/bending stuff when changing the battery everything will be fine.
I personally really like the option of a removable battery. There are plenty of times when it comes in handy, say for instance an all day summer concert or amusement park when you're taking a lot of pics or video and your battery starts running low. I do prefer a removable battery but (assuming the battery isn't removable on Sprint's version) the reason I'm not getting it is Sense. I had the Touch Diamond, bought the EVO 4G on release day, and bought the 3D on release day. Sense (or whatever the previous WinMo version was called) has just gotten increasingly bloated. I know they said they would lighten it up for Sense 4 but there are, in my opinion, too many unnecessary animations and things that detract from and conflict with the ICS UI elements that weren't changed. I may however change my tune if CM9 comes out for it shortly after release, guess we'll see.
