Anonymous, 11 Jul 2017You are right. Unfortunately LG V20 remains the last phone with removable battery forever. ... moreI wouldn't say forvere maybe one day apple will release an iphone with removable battery call it innovation and then everyone else copies then we can have removable batteries back
Was waiting for this phone and expecting something great , but it seems like it's just a bigger LG G6 with just some improvements, all wait to see what Nokia comes with and if they come with something great maybe all consider buying it , but I like LG phone am a big fan ,but I also like having my removable battery , well maybe all just buy the LG v20
if u want no glass-back phone, it'll have no wireless charging.. but we can see many manufacturers now opting for glass-back design.. if u want phones with removable battery, good luck, since mostly phones now with non-removable batteries..
Katar, 11 Jul 2017Just don't buy it, simpleNo, it's not simple, because ALL phones are glass, so there is no choice/alternative.
(So the only way is to stay with LG V20 forever.)
LG superfan, 11 Jul 2017There are no more phones with removable batteryThat is because for as long as a phone has even a trickle of power, the powers that be can monitor: a) The microphone. b) The camera. c) The data connection. d) GPS - Even if it's powered down. I was informed by a former Nokia employee that this functionality is baked into every single phone made by law, and has been for over a decade, including feature phones and even more basic phones.
Hence the authorities prefer phones without removable batteries, stops user from totally disabling the phone if they want to vanish etc.
However, I cannot prove this, but I did hear it from an engineer.

why i'm saying that phone, because that's the real stereo speaker on a phone
Kevin Backalive, 11 Jul 2017Not interested in Glass PhoneJust don't buy it, simple
LG superfan, 11 Jul 2017There are no more phones with removable batteryYou are right. Unfortunately LG V20 remains the last phone with removable battery forever.
(I hope this civilization will collapse, so when a new civilization will be rebuilt, there will be a chance for new phones with removable battery again.)
Broeckx Bart, 11 Jul 2017Will it be available in Europe? (Belgium) If not you could fetch one via a online retailer elsewhere.
Larry638, 11 Jul 2017Again same old single buttom firing speaker, they put great effords to improve DAC audio quali... more The G5 was relatively costly at first... however it's loudspeaker was anything but loud. Products like ZTE Axon 7, and latest Vertu Constellation both have front facing Dolby speakers. Now that tiny bezel's are trending, manufacturers must decide which to prioritize, and, for loudspeaker fans the future of mobile devices is less certain. I believe the best of both worlds can be achieved, and I'll take that to the bank. Step your game up equipment manufacturers!
I guess I won't be buying another LG phone anymore. I would have to look elsewhere for a phone with removable battery... Such a shame that this feature is taken out in exchange for dumb aesthetics like a glass back.
ZloiYuri, 11 Jul 2017Yet another phone without updates. Meaning Android updates? The V30 isn't out yet. However, hopefully, with Android O, updates will be handled better, regardless of manufacturer.
Again same old single buttom firing speaker, they put great effords to improve DAC audio quality but neglects the speaker. LG devices has never emphasized on this aspect like other brand flagship smartphones, hope they would come out with an all round performer to match their screen innovation.
