The summary of this question is:

I have a LG Optimus One (P500). For sometime I am wondering why my phone's battery has four terminals.

I don't think this question is related to Android at all. Even my 7 years old Motorola phone running Java based OS has similar battery.

This question is similar to this question and looks like its going to be closed any moment.

Why hasn't the question been closed but rather received so many up-votes?

  • maybe it caught interest for "what's the 4th connector good for spedifically with Android" (answer maybe: NFC antenna, might as well be related to this one)

It's not a bad question per se, just not quite on topic for us.

However it's also not fully off-topic (there is an Android hardware element to it) and it does have a pretty well written question and informative, well-written answers.

Personally I haven't voted to close it, I don't think it's doing any harm and is interesting and informative for people who are interested in how their device works.

    I agree. It's a grey area kind of question. At the least, it is interesting and related to Android.

It's got two Close votes at the moment.

Why is it getting upvoted? This is the perpetual meta question on just about all of the Stack Exchange sites. This on-topic Q&A stuff is hard.

(For what it's worth, I'd already voted to close both of those.)

  • Hmm! so you and I are the one wise ones, who voted to close it down :)
