Don't speak for everyone. Personally I prefer thin over replaceable battery. I never experienced any need in battery replacement.

Let me guess, you've got an iPhone? ;)
I'm just teasing of course (I'm an iPhone user myself at the moment as it has the apps I need and does get good battery life) but if so, I can see why you might say that. The iPhones (and iOS in general) at the moment seriously kick Android's ass in the power management department. My iPhone easily lasts two days on a charge provided I don't use it constantly. The Android phones I've used couldn't even run a full day without recharging, and that's without me using much multitasking and that's just phones. Don't even get me started on the battery life gap between the Nexus tablets and their iPad equivalents. If I could pick one Android feature, just one, for Google to really get right it would be power management.
Of course I've yet to find any current mobile os that manages power even half as well as old Symbian did. ;)

Nail.Head. Nothing else tempts me to think about a move back to Apple as much as this-I feel I am constantly having to micro-manage my SGS2 just to get it through the day...:(

I don't know ...it seems to me that Symbian handsets lasted long on battery simply because people weren't using them that much.
