> Android                                                                                                                  
I bought a Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) specifically because it's
supported by [LineageOS](https://www.lineageos.org/).  Installation
was painless and the LineageOS installation has been stable.  It's not
the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy but it renders OpenStreetMap
well enough for NZ geodata.

> Removable battery                                                                                                        
The battery on the Galaxy A5 is built in unfortunately.

> 3.5mm headphone jack                                                                                                     
It has this.

> USB OTG                                                                                                                  
And this.

> USB charging                                                                                                             
USB C, so you may need new cables but they seems to be better made
than cheap USB micro B cables at least.
