I need a phone with good battery life, a user removable battery, full web browsing capabilities, and a full size (not small like blackberry) qwerty keyboard

Except for the upcoming BlackBerry Passport (which may or may not be offered at Koodo), I don't see any other device that fits your needs, Reuben. And I'm not even sure the Passport has a removable battery. It is, however, a larger device with a larger keyboard and a larger screen.

Current Android, Windows and Apple phones have no physical keyboards.

You may be able to find something from a couple of years ago, but then its performance will be underwhelming at best.

If you can find one, the Q10 is an excellent option but the screen is small. And it has a bb keyboard.

Tbh the Q5 keyboard is well spaced and it's clicky. Great feedback that you've fully pressed a key

Yeah, the passport is your only bet, really. Q10 is good but it has a smaller display. The keyboard on the passport is very wide but not very tall, so it might feel uncomfortable. I'm not too sure on it.
