    I did a tonne of searching and asking before I bought my last phone, which is the LG G3. I bought it right before the G4 came out (damnit). I compromised as my three criteria were:

    5" screen
    mSD card slot
    Removable battery

    But last I checked there are still NO Android devices that have these three simple things. Like I said, I compromised and got the G3, which has a 5.5" screen. The screen is probably the thing I could "bend" on the most, but Ideally I would love a 5" screen, or close to that size. 5.5" is too big. 4.7" is probably too small, but between those is fine.

    The HTC One M9 and Oppo R7 come close, but both have embedded batteries. And Samsung are embedding their batteries now, which is a bummer.


    Are there any newly released phones that actually DO fit those three criteria that I've missed somehow?

    Sadly not, phones are getting bigger and thinner. LG seem to be the only ones that still offer removable batteries. You could go for a Moto phone, which has an SD card facility, but sadly their batteries are sealed.

    Guess it's more profitable to omit those features.
