xXENDER FREAKXx, 11 Mar 2018What makes FM Radio so important for current smartphones? People now use mobile data to listen... moreWhere do I begin?
- FM stations are local, so they often contain content that is locally relevant (e.g. traffic updates - yes, Google Maps might show red, but a radio station might mention that a dignitary is visiting that city). Not every city has a local streaming channel, but pretty much every city has one or more FM channels.
- FM is free. You take a dig at the cheapness of people unwilling to pay a mobile bill, but for some it is a reality. And, it is only a loose correlation that expensive phones are used with data-rich plans. I might gift a high-end phone to someone who cannot afford an expensive data plan (e.g. a retiree).
- FM is receive only, so it can be used in places where radio transmissions are not allowed (unlike streaming, where there is some two-way communication). So if you're a soldier who's forward deployed, or working in a construction area that uses explosives, etc. as long as you get an FM signal, you can enjoy music.
I'm a child of the modern streaming & online generation, but that doesn't mean I'm willing to throw away older technology just because it isn't the newest fad.

S3 is the main reason why S-Series is so overrated.
