Re: Are there any new phones with removable batteries?

Manufacturers are no longer making Flagship Phones with removable batteries, because they learned from Apple, that creating phones with removable batteries decrease their phone sales and profits, because consumers will tend to keep their old phones longer if they can simply replace the battery when it goes bad as opposed to buying a new phone.

The Good News is, a you can still purchase a Verizon Unlocked Version of the LG V20 on Amazon.com for $349.  The V20 is A GREAT Phone!!... And it's The last Flagship phone with a removable battery.

Wow.  Brilliant (not quite).  I have the V20, of course.  It has been devistated by updates.  Its not a "new" phone.  Verizon google and LG have ruined it.

Amen to that! We got the LG V20 phones and they are still pretty powerful and work well. We did notice when the COVID-19 broke out and people were working from home more we have had difficult time making actual phone calls where we live. Not sure if that is the actual reason but the timing of it definitely matches up so it is probably just our location more than the phone. Most definitely a need for phones with a removable battery... People usually get a bulky cover for most phones as it is so the excuse people want a slim phone is garbage! Switching a battery out is still the best and quickest way to have a fresh full charge in a phone... These phone manufacturers need to get it through their thick skulls that more people would want that than not... Smh
