As for now it’s not easy for us to find a smartphone that comes with removable battery, it seems that replaceable batteries will never be a large market item in the future as well. However, when the problems come related to battery life span, you may miss the old days with removable battery that you can easily fix it by replacing the degraded battery by yourself or carrying extra batteries and swapping them as you like , instead of asking an official store to do a complicated battery renew with high cost.
Nowadays the new released best phones tend to sport a thin unibody design with high-rating waterproof feature, it somehow sacrifices the versatility of removable battery for new dashing features. The latest Samsung Galaxy S10 and its variants S10e/S10 Plus have been confirmed to not have a removable battery , even though some customers still hope for the return of replaceable battery in smartphones, we have to admit that the removable batteries have gone with the advent of fast charging and longer battery life.
