While I have even made the argument why Android is superior to Apple due to interchangeable batteries, the MOST ideal would be to NEVER have to change a battery or plug in your phone and you could use it as much as you wanted to each day.
This is so true. I was just looking at the Ultra/Maxx thread over on XDA. Remember this is a developers forum. Post after post is raving about the battery life and performance of the Maxx. Many posters stating that for the first time they don't see the need to load a ROM on the phone and many stating they don't even care if it does ever get root, that root would just be icing on the cake to an otherwise great phone. Coming from that forum that is saying something.
