Yeah. Not a fan of this move. Not being able to charge your phone and listen to music at the same time is annoying.

Looks like the Note 9 is the last Samsung phone I buy.

but just remember the a8 is a mid range phone. Not on the level of the Galaxy S or Note series.

What's the reason for this? Why are the decision makers at these companies removing the headphone jacks?

Space on these devices is a premium. Removing that port gives them more room to fit in other tech.

Leaked cases for the Galaxy S10 series are showing a spot for a headphone jack.
https://www.tomsguide.com/us/galaxy-s10-headphone-jack,news-28812.html

That’s according to reliable Samsung rumor whisperer Ice Universe, who has published a video of a case prototype as proof of the existence of the analog headphone jack in the S10.


If true, millions of Samsung users will breathe easily. The Korean company — after making lots of fun out of the iPhone’s lack of headphone jack — has become the last stronghold for the beleaguered audio port along with LG.

if they have to remove an old tech to put in a new, they will do it.

I may be in the minority but I kind of like the fold as well, don't like that nearly $2K price though lol.

I’ll have my S10+ soon. Can’t wait. I’ve been rocking a Sony Xperia XA for a couple of years now.

I'm debating if I should get the S10+, wait for the S10 5G (for the extra camera) or just wait for the next note. I have the note 8 now and it's still doing just fine but I always get the itch to upgrade when something new comes along.
