1. The Note had had a rectangular design since the 3. 2. The Xperia still has big @$$ bezels. Do your research before commenting, playa.

It's just the Samsung fan boys thing. Now they are okay with absence of headphone jack which they been trolling everyone from Apple to one plus until a couple of weeks back. They are okay with punch hole too wait until Samsung launch phones without punch hole they will call it ugly or so as probably Apple and cheaper phones will continue to have those in their phones

For a phone aimed at so called ‘enthusiasts’ I can’t see why a headphone jack would be necessary. Us enthusiasts moved to Bluetooth headphones years ago.

For me I still use both wired and wireless headphones. Sometimes I forget to charge my wireless ones and I have 2 pair, so that if I forget one, the other is charged. But sometimes I forget both. When I go riding, I wear my wireless ones and if they run out of juice on a long ride, I have my wired ones with me as backup. I usually wear my wired headphones when I ride in the city, because bumps eventually shake buds out my ears. Wired buds even if they pop out, won't fall to the ground since it has a cord. Once I am out the city on a bike path, then I switch to my Buds or PowerBeats 3. Having the versatility to be is a bonus. I know the Jack will go at some point. But it doesn't have too. Also there is a smaller jack they could use. If they drop the jack there is nothing we can do except complain. But unlike Apple fans, when Samaung dows something we dont like, we stop buying. The S6 had low sales do to the fact Samsung dropped the SdCard and water resistance that the S5 had. The S6 as nice as it was, had low sales. As soon as the S7 brought both back those things, the S7 sold very well and better than the S6 did. Apple fans suck it up and get mad and still buy like a bunch of mindless zombie. If any. rand of phone drops a feature that is important enough for me, I won't buy it. As much as I love the iPhone, Apple pulling 32bit app support where I could no longer install older apps on new iPhone was a significant problem for me and my work. I can live without the jack. But I see no reason to remove it.

Welp that settles it. I'm officially looking for a new primary device. No headphone Jack automatically disqualifies it from being a daily driver. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it's an amazing device, but if you can't check every possible situation without a suitable solution (in this case if my bluetooth headset dies) then you are not daily driver material. I was looking forward to this phone too. Seems the V50 is the device to get. Sorry Samsung I love you, but with this move on my beloved Note line, you've been relegated to second place.

"...(in this case if my bluetooth headset dies)..." Your current headset or the Buds that'll be a preorder freebie? Also, the battery should be more than enough to get you though the day to where you could use the Type C headset that comes with the phone.

Can someone please explain why almost no tech outlets will mention how much of that screen real estate is totally inaccessible to the S-Pen, due to the curved design...And why this is just something to overlook?
