This phone looks like an affordable smartphone Type.

No it do... moreYes. No matter how big it is, it's still no good after it starts to wear out. Well unless it's, like, 10000mah, which it will never be.

No it doesn't?
Apparently GSMArena's authors and the "industry" have no clue at all why we want removable batteries :-(
1) Hand me downs. Lots of phones get passed on to family-members or friends or kept as a backup. So if the battery aren't swappable after the 2 year lifespan of most batteries then these phones literally increase landfill and waste (just when everybody gives the illusion that we should be more eco-friendly).
2) To have 2 or more batteries at hand to instantly swap empty batteries with full. This is especially needed when away from a charger for a prolonged time (and/or perhaps with heavy use).
3) Accidents and DOA. How many times has it occurred that a brand new phone gets out of the box with faulty batteries. If these can't be swapped (easily) then it becomes a hassle and frustration to get the damn thing replaced. Since shops are reluctant to exchange phones when DOA these days.
It seems that (again) a lot of (influential) people have no empathy or understanding with things that are important to real customers. They live in their ivory towers and have a high opinion of themselves. And belittle the remarks that we have.
I'm curious who will belittle my comment this time.
