Micro-USB 3.0 connector for the PinePhone?
A reason why I am still a Samsung Galaxy S5 user are:

1. replacable battery

2. Micro-USB 3.0 connector

The same cable as for 2.5 hard drives can be used, and the connection is very stable. I am a heavy user, and phone death was most often caused by a broken connector.

Is there a reason for not using a micro-USB 3.0 connector as a standard, or one which is modified so that it works also with usb-c?

The USB-C connector was designed partly to address the problems with that connector. I suspect most people find USB-C to be an improvement, and are happier that it's being used.
