I prefer the choice of both, especially as wired is still better quality than wireless & there's zero latency.
I know that recent wireless headphones have improved alot in sound quality, and it's actually worth getting a pair, I'll get a pair whenever I need/ want, like the Sony WH-1000XM3.
Notice these include the 3.5mm jack, " The headphones come in a nicer looking and better feeling case, which manages to fit a 3.5mm audio cable, the USB-C cable and the plug adapter for in-flight use inside.":
I like being able to plug my phone into my car stereo or HiFi amplifier using the 3.5mm jack to L&R RCA's, & charge my phone at the same time.
If you haven't tried hooking up your phone to your HiFi, you should, it's awesome.
Last December GSMA did a Weekly poll: Do you still use a 3.5mm audio jack?:
69% voted for 'I do, wouldn't buy a phone without one':
This year it may be less overall, but any audiophiles on Samsung & LG it will be more.
In September 2016 when Apple launched the iPhone 7 without a 3.5mm jack, 46% (the majority) of their users weren't very happy about it, and said that they wouldn't get the iP 7:
iPhone hacker Scotty Allen found that there was space to put headphone jack back (29 Aug 2018):
Wuuuuu i just see somewhere Sammy will tell in for around 2 weeks when the foldable phone will be released i near future now.

The only place you see flip phones now are little childrens toys, there is a reason this form factor died off but some idiot at Samsung thinks it would be so retro to make a phone with all the flaws and shortcomings of the old versions, updated for 2019!
Dual screens huh... only slightly more retarded than having bendable displays.. you can ONLY look at 1 screen at a time so at any given moment you are only ever able to see 50% of the available screen space but that screen will be 1/4th the area of a normal candybar phone lol.
Not to mention the smaller antennae, battery, keypad all reasons why this form factor died off and should stay dead but hey some executive at samsung can pat himself on the back from bringing this piece of shit to market yay
Phones like these are still popular in Japan, there's a whole different Android market there, and some of their really nice phones (NEC, Kyocera, etc.) aren't even sold elsewhere in the world.

I don't remember a lot of flip phones having a 3.5mm jack even when they were popular. It's amazing anyone e even makes a half decent flip phone now.
