Don’t you just love it when two big companies start taking jabs at each other? That’s what LG did when Samsung started touting their devices’ fast charging capabilities on Twitter. Samsung talked up the ability to go from 0% to 100% in just 90 minutes.

LG’s rebuttal?

And that says it all. As fun as a quick ribbing like this is, though, we’re hoping that LG’s bold banter is a sign to us that they’re not going to waver on their commitment to deliver flexibility in their smartphones. We’d be absolutely shocked if the LG G5 were to launch without a removable battery after this stunt. Then again, there’s solid evidence that LG is looking to stick with removable batteries for future smartphones, so there shouldn’t be much to worry about.
