    The "new" S5 has a working battery, for now. It isn't charging, though. There are some files uploading to gmail, supposedly. I want to take the battery out while it still has some charge. Will the files still upload if I do?

    What type of files are uploading?
    Usually the upload will either fail or restart

    They were photos. The uploading finally got done and they were sent. It's good to know for the future, though, thanks.

    OT: I seriously miss removable batteries.

    I don't have to miss 'em. I've got 3 or 4 of 'em! My problem is keeping the batteries all charged when the "new" S5 won't do that and I still don't know why not.

    Old battery. Do they still sell replacements? @Rgarner

    Instead of trying to email your files, a simpler way would be to upload them to Google Drive (or Dropbox, or OneDrive). I keep a folder, on my Google Drive, exclusively for back up.
    Apks, app settings, my epub files and the like. So when ever I switch phones, or need to do a reset, I have the necessary files available.
