The Samsung Galaxy S8 might feature a brand new, all-screen wrap-around display and a futuristic design, but along with that Samsung is also rumored to kill the 3.5mm headphone jack.
"Samsung, don't do this. Please."What you gain by removing the headphone jack is a little more space in an already small device like a phone, and that space could be used for a larger battery and bigger camera, two features that users often request.
But is it a worthy trade-off? We asked you, our readers, and we've got an unequivocal result from your votes: a resounding 'No'. Some 75% gave the thumbs down to the possibility of Samsung removing the headphone jack, and only 25% said that they could agree with such a decision in exchange for a larger battery or some other extra.
