Well if people don't want slower phones I think they'd start caring. With just $10 for a new battery someone with a note 1 through 4 can change the battery in under a minute, no expertise required.

Hero 6 is waterproof, and has a battery that is easily changed. Smartphones could do this as well if the manufacturers gave a damn, but they'd rather have phones go bad after 2 years so people keep on buying them every 2 years.

You can still make a stylish waterproof phone that uses a removable battery.

Yes, you can. If your idea of stylish is a thick phone. But as the article says, that's not what most consumers want. A thin phone that "feels" like it has high quality construction is more important to people. Especially when they replace their phones annually and never need a new battery.

There are also lots of phone battery cases for those people that are running older phones whose non-removable batteries are getting weak. I think removable batteries are sort of like flip-phones or physical keyboards. Some people really want them, but most people don't care, and current phone trends mean that they're not coming back on flagship models.

People keep fucking buying them, so of course they'll keep making them. It's all profit.

Looks like I'm never moving on from my Note 4.

To be precise, the article is about smartphones, not all phones as Mr Blue's title suggests. My AT&T Z222 flip phone has a replaceable battery pack.

You could, but it would be pretty bulky. Still, the biggest reason no one makes phones with removable batteries is so that you're basically forced to buy a new phone when the battery starts to go after year two or three.
