    I'm trying to figure out if the battery for the Nexus 5 is replaceable, so that I can carry an extra battery with me in case my battery gives out. I do that with my present Samsung phone and just love that feature. I haven't found any specific mention of that. Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for letting me know - even if it was bad news. It's not a deal breaker - but it would be so nice.

    Samsung seems to be one of the few manufacturers these days that include removable batteries on their flagships

    The other option is to try a portable external battery. Not the greatest option, but it can help.

    I am planning on the battery case option, when they become available, for flights from Philly to Germany. I actually just got home and was very happy with the stock battery results.
