I already liked the uniform alignment on my iPhone 5, brings the design even closer to being perfect
NewNicknameAgain, 19 Apr 2017Samsung is usually the biggest Apple copycat When Apple introduced Fingerprint Scanner, Samsu... moreLOL well thank god Apple doesn't copy right??? Wait remind me about the Iphone 8 LOL OLED version :D
Specifications are great!
Still think about Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus as the normal screen size is now 5.5.
Adrian, 19 Apr 2017There are USB Type C headphones out there ... go look and stop complaining abut the darn Jack ... moreWhat if im using the USB type C port to charge my device?? How am I meant to listen to music while it charges?? Im sure im not the only one who does that? Im not going to buy additional adaptor's or bluetooth headsets.
Shadow Snypa786, 19 Apr 2017But was it popular then did everyone follow suit?? No it's when Apple did it everyone follows.... moreSamsung is usually the biggest Apple copycat
When Apple introduced Fingerprint Scanner, Samsung quickly introduced their own
This time, Samsung retained their mobility of keeping the jack. Sooner or later, maybe Chinese OEMs will completely remove it, but these big dogs like LG, Sony, Asus, etc. Will retain it until they made a good reason to remove it
Xiaomi kept the IR blaster but axed the headphone jack. Priorities, huh?
Pia, 19 Apr 2017Lmao...apple wasn't the 1st the remove the audio jack...LG was the 1st to done it years back...But was it popular then did everyone follow suit?? No it's when Apple did it everyone follows. If it wasn't for Apple we still would have headphone ports.
AnonD-39937, 19 Apr 2017Sony Xperia X will get Android O sometime in 2018. What phone do you have?I have a Zenfone Max on Android 6.0.1
I'm no longer hoping for Nougat - my sister's LG G4 that is far more capable of running that OS isn't receiving it either
NewNicknameAgain, 19 Apr 2017Yeah, I was surprised too Sadly, my phone will no longer be able to receive that Android OS, ... moreSony Xperia X will get Android O sometime in 2018. What phone do you have?

Sadly, my phone will no longer be able to receive that Android OS, not even Nougat has arrived yet
NewNicknameAgain, 19 Apr 2017LDAC? Wow, even the Xperia X has it already. Android is late once againsincerely, it's a miracle that Google made an agreement with Sony to borrow it for Android O, being a proprietary audio codec developed by Sony for their devices.
Frozen Fire, 19 Apr 2017Geez people. Gotta move on. While the quality benefit of USB audio is debatable, change has to... moreMoving from casette plates to CD plates made sense because of better portability. Removal of headphone jack in place of BT connection that often drops the connection and quality isn't up to par is just plain bad move. They could remove it IF ONLY THEY INTRODUCED SOMETHING BETTER
Geez people. Gotta move on. While the quality benefit of USB audio is debatable, change has to take place.
If it were upto you guys, we'll still be using cassettes, and floppies. :P
We moved on from CDs... Move on from 3.5 jack too.
The stainless steel frame should make this phone more durable , the biscuit Mi 5 is something of the past...835+6GB RAM, dual camera wide-tele, stereo speakers, water-resistance means this is a solid phone, we will what the price will be in Europe where many times phones are 20% pricier. And with this jackless trend we are forced to go wireless...BT 5.0 sounds interesting with 2MB/s speed, if you couple it with LDAC (which is integrated in Android O) you should get even 24bit/96KHz lossless audio.
Now who's saying that this year will be the year of small bezels?
