In line with other recent Samsung phones, the battery squats in a little pit of glue-lined sadness, but we quickly set to work digging it free.

A little heat can help soften the glue here, but heat and lithium-ion batteries form a combustible mix—so we opt for a different solution.

This Samsung SDI-made battery plonks down 12.71 Wh (3300 mAh at 3.85 V) of capacity.

That's 6% less than the Note7's 13.48 Wh—but keep in mind that battery burned in more ways than one. The safely revamped battery in the Fan Edition clocked in at only 12.32 Wh, so this actually represents an improvement (assuming of course no fire).
