    Assuming the reports are accurate - Galaxy S8 reportedly sticking to QHD display, may not feature home button or 3.5mm jack | Android Central will you miss the 3.5mm jack or are we all past that now? Personally, it's not a deal breaker for me but some folks feel pretty strongly about it.

    Screw that. I want my headphone jack. They've done fine with it so far, the only reason to remove it is because Apple did so (and that's a poor reason to do so).

    But that's not really the only reason. Just like the move to USB-C, tech is moving in that direction. Apple, Samsung and Motorola all lead the way in making those changes.

    It will hopefully allow for a sleeker design, larger battery and more wireless accessories.

    So what about those that use our headphone jack for our business...like using the Square Card reader that plugs into the jack?

    Yes! I play white noise or rain sounds when I sleep and that requires my phone frequently be plugged in to charge AND have earbuds plugged in. Almost all the wireless earbuds that are good for sleeping are headbands or sleep masks and I don't want either of those.At work this means I'm going to have to get a wireless charger for my desk so I can charge and listen to music.

    Why are companies constantly aiming for super thin phones at the expense of common, convenient standards for their customers?

    I just read about this on Android Authority's link on Facebook.

    I find this ridiculous, to be honest. If you take out the jack, then you automatically open up the doors for your customers to spend more money on Bluetooth headphones and things they may not want to spend money on in the first place.

    I'm hoping this is not a true allegation, as I feel like Android usually goes the more economical route of not forcing customers to buy high end or brand name products/accessories to work with their devices (ie, when you buy an iPhone, you need all Apple-related products to work with your phone). Hopefully Samsung changes this in the future on next iterations if it's more than just a rumour.

    Manufacturers such as Beats, Sennheiser, and Bose still provide a large number of headphones utilizing the 3.5mm jack. Many of those headphones can last a long time and are still being purchased by consumers.

    Wireless isn't better, but just an alternative way of connecting. I would like to see another year of 3.5mm headphone jacks available but if not, so be it. If Samsung removes it, I hope that the big manufactures recognize the trend with Apple and Samsung and bump up production on affordable USB-c headphones.

    That's my hope as well. When the two biggies make such a drastic change, suppliers are force to change as well to meet the demand

    Yes... I will miss the 3.5mm jack! I ise the jack a lot plugging right into my sound system in my 4Runner V8. Just like I'll miss the flat screen, as Sammy is probably going to curved.

    Not really.

    I do use my headphone jack almost every day. Whether it's listing to podcasts on the weekend or watching tech review videos on YouTube, my headphone jack is a high traffic area but I could always switch over to Bluetooth headphones if needed but I like my cable.

    I have to say, so far I'm not impressed with the info leaking about the S8. I like my home button, and don't use fingerprints. And no headphone jack?? Not cool. Now I'm hearing about a bezel-less display. I'm just not liking any of it. I can see that display being a HUGE issue for cases and screen protectors. It was hard enough with the Note 7 and the S7 Edge. What are your thoughts?

    No bezels sounds like a bad idea, glad to see the home button die, no headphone jack is a bad idea but it is tolerable.

    I don't care about the home button or headphone jack. Once I went to Bluetooth headphones I LOVE it and can't go back to wires. Right now only time I use headphone jack is if I hook up phone to my vans auxiliary port (current stereo setup doesn't have Bluetooth option)

    I bet they'll come up with (if they don't already) have some adapter to allow the square reader to work with a usb-c

    I think it will make finding a case and screen protectors very hard. I'm a firefighter. I have to have both those things. I throw my phone into my fire gear pockets. It needs to be protected.

    I would have a case on it regardless so if I have to lose a little screen area to do so, so be it. But at this point it's still wait and see what is announced and when. Hoping in February

    True. But I had to try several cases and screen protectors before I found ones that would work with my S7 Edge. I spent a lot before I finally found the ones that would work together without taking the screen protector off, and still protect the phone against drops. It was a pain. I'm just not sure how that all will work with a bezel-less one.
