Can anyone recommend a good Dual-Sim Android phone with Removable Battery?

Hi fellow Android junkies!

My (semi) trusty LG G3 decided to take swimming lessons and now I'm in the market for a new phone.
I'm specifically looking for one with dual-sim (extra MicroSD slot is a bonus), and a removable battery.

I did some google-fu and came up with Moto G5, LG V20, or LG G4 Dual, among a few others. Almost none of which are available locally in dual-sim format.

I'm quite keen on Xiaomi, but I am wary of the non-removable battery, especially since I would probably like to buy either a second or extended battery for whatever phone I get, so that I can stop running from charger-to-charger.


My budget is flexible, but ideally in the R2k - R5k range (and I don't mind buying secondhand).

Does anyone have any ideas?

I found some nice new phones but they don't have a removable battery, it's going to be really hard to find removable battery phones that are Dual Sim unless you go for the unknown brands.

Cellucity has the following Dual-sim phones available :

Huawei P8 Lite( 2017) - R3300 - https://shop.cellucity.co.za/product/huawei-p8-lite-2017-dual-sim-tm-black/

Huawei P10 Lite - R5100 - https://shop.cellucity.co.za/product/huawei-p10-lite-2017-dual-sim-tm-black/

Hisense Infinity Elegance 1 E76 - R3500-R3900 - https://shop.cellucity.co.za/product/hisense-infinity-elegance-1-e76/

Sony Xperia L1 - R3400 - https://shop.cellucity.co.za/product/sony-xperia-l1-dual-sim/

Get the Xiaomi Note 2 or ditch the removable battery idea.

Make your life easier.
I'm starting to lean towards the Xiaomi Note 2. Thing is: I want to be able to have a second battery that I can swop out. Zero to full in seconds, not hours.
And with a bit of luck, maybe I can 3v3n get a ZeroLemon extended battery, maybe 9000mah or so. I'm just so sick of being tethered to a charger, and I tend to keep my phone for longer than 2 years. The battery always goes bad before then.

Yikes the Note 2 is quite expensive. How much will the extra battery cost ? I just keep a small powerbank with me when away from home.

My OnePlus 5 has dual sim support. Cost me R7.4k. Epic phone, with epic battery life.
