    Hello Everyone,

    Quick question about choise of an handset number 2.
    I already own a note 4 which I enjoy so far though i experienced small drawbacks (slower reaction since android 5.0, battery's fatigue after 18months of fast charging thus had to replace it).
    I will be travelling ouside of EU within next few weeks and take advantage to buy an additional handset. I was heading to buy another Note4 but still wondering whether some 2015 or 2016 handsets would be a good alternative.
    Requirements I have are :
    - android of course
    - screen of 5.7 inch minimum (i find my note screen too small with time)
    - removable battery
    - SD slot

    I found out LG V10 would match these criteria, are there some more candidates ?

    I agree with mru. Moto x lure. No removable battery though. Only other phone I can thing of is huawei mate 8. Not sure of bands or availability.

    It ticks all the boxes except removable battery. However 4000 mah battery would ease the pain of removable battery. Oh and you might love the 6 inch screen.

    Thank you guys for your answers.
    Removable battery is a must, I do not feel like having an handset that has zero autonomy after two years of usage because battery is washed out. That is what happened to my Note4 and hopefully I was able to swap with a brand new one.
    Doing this search I realize there are sadly not so many handsets with removable battery anymore...
