So I know having a removable battery has its own perks but one of it really concerns me. Compared to a unibody with a fixed battery, you can easily shut down a Note 3 just by removing the battery. So what if my Note 3 got stolen by someone with a broad knowledge about Android, he/she can easily just remove the battery, boot into recovery mode and do a factory reset from there rendering the pin/password/pattern and Android Device Manager useless and be gone forever (the thief can easily sell it/get rid of it) compared to unibody smartphones. Is there a workaround for this?
