Then it sounds like you don't have anything to worry about. Keep in
mind, Samsung's whole debacle came about because they were trying to
hard to squeeze as much battery life as possible into the phone.

Also, consider the OpenPandora, which has a design that actively
requires some amount of pressure to be on the battery at all times
because of how the connector works.

Actually, are you even using a LiPo battery? Plain Li-ion batteries are
rigid and don't have this problem.
