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.
