I'm looking for a 64bit smartphone with removable battery & microSD slot.
Any Oppo models have this?

if none of the Oppo models have the 2 features, I can consider any other
models as long as the internal capacity is 64GB or more.

I can forgo the microSD slot but battery & screen size of above 5" is essential.
Ideally charging is via microUSB port & not Type C
Removeable batteries are pretty uncommon these days, however there are quite a few cases around that include an integrated battery. Perhaps you can just buy a couple of cases, and swap them when the battery gets low?

Here is a range for Apple and Samsung devices.

I did not see any models with removable batteries.

I agree with the earlier post - removable batteries are not common. Get a phone that fits your requirements and then add a battery pack to the back of the phone

Apple and Samsung have lots of large phones and are flexible, good quality, and commonly used devices. I suggest choosing from one of these.  

If you choose a model not commonly used , make sure you can get local support when it has an issue.

Unfortunately there are fewer and fewer options with removable batteries.

I second the LG V20 as a good option but they're older phones.

Other options include Nokia 2.2 or Archos Oxygen, but they're budget phones with lower specs.

The only Oppo phone >5 inches with a removable battery and microSD slot was released in 2014, which means the rest of the phone is very outdated. It is an Oppo Find 7 if you were interested in looking it up.

I'd suggest going with what JackieMan suggested if those are the features you are looking for in an Android phone.

Do you want a removable battery to swap out in case the phone dies during the day? Or is it more to replace the battery when it gets worn down in a year or two?

John and Mal provide a good suggestion to address the first case.
