Dumb iPhone got rid of it and the world follows it.
I wonder who is Dumber!
Nope, don't like the sounds of that one bit. Especially if you as a company used it as a boosting point at your keynote.
I remember when the Samsung guys bragged how the Note 7 had a headphone jack LOL

Would buy the S7 Edge instead.
