    I read all the articles here about CM Flare S6 variants and I understand the excitement(?) and enthusiasm(?) of the writers about the new phones but there is one thing I noticed. There is no mention of whether the batteries of all S6 are removable or not. Which of them have removable battery? TIA… 🙂
