Though I'm told the majority of people didn't bother to use the replaceable battery feature and so it wasn't even considered for future phone iterations after the G5.
Honestly, if they had included an extra battery and the charging cradle in the box, I think a lot more people would have appreciated the feature.

The cradle was a great design as well, it even functioned as a battery bank for other devices in a pinch. People just don't buy extra accessories for their phones anymore.

Adding the cradle and an extra battery would've added extra cost to the purchase price of the LG G4 and LG G5 and maybe they weren't good enough phones to justify that price increase?

Launch day LG G4 phones from several carriers came with a free second battery and cradle. And there was a long standing deal where if you bought a $25 cradle a new battery was included free.

It was among the top 3 phones of its time, but that time is long gone now.

But if you're looking for mid range and upwards, its just the Fairphone 3 as far as I'm aware.
Edit: And the price on that thing is awful, you could pretty much buy 3 non-removable battery phones with the same specs for that price and just junk them every time the battery starts to degrade.
The Fairphone 3 doesn't even seem to be available in the USA. Is it at least manufactured somewhere in Europe rather than the PRC?

Nope, good old "Made in China" . They do seem to claim they personally ensure working conditions are up to western standards, and seem to work with fair trade stuff for the resources.

Better than nothing I guess, but doesn't justify the price.

Are there any phones that aren't made in the PRC (Taiwan would still be acceptable). I don't trust the PRC to make any computer equipment.
