When S6 Edge came out, it cut two of my favourite features from the S5 - water resistance and memory card support. But because the phone was so beautiful, I still ended up buying it - after a year the S7 Edge came out and addressed these issues so of course I was a preorder customer for that one! Now the rumours are saying that the S8 series is not going to have a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. I hope it is not true, because the jack connector is actually something I (and most people I know) regularly use and I would have a really hard time living without it. Not only do I have a bunch of headphones etc. but I am often in a situation where I want to play music on some device that only has a 3.5mm jack for its input. Carrying around various adaptors is just not an option, when the standard 3.5mm jack cable is more or less ubiquitous. In fact when Apple lost the jack on their iPhone 7, several of my friends who where using Apple decided to go for a Samsung instead, precisely for that reason. So please Samsung, leave it in, I don't care if it makes my phone 1mm thicker, it's a must-have.
