Any phone can run without jack any phone can run without SD card nobody needs them but all wants them like they are essential which is lie because they arent.
Essential is battery, mic displayand speaker. Even camera is not essential but is much more important than jack or SD slot.
And about breaking phone or water accident yes if you are clumsy then it cannot help.
But photos can be lost by any other accident and cant be recovered.
Photos arent everything.
And if anyone can charge phone overnight can headphones or earplugs.
About the car fact not everybody have and needs a car.
In present era many countries have such a low salary taht people living there cant afford to have a car so your comment is irelevant.
SD Card also JACK wasnt ever essential.
Stop reling on old in present era useless technologies and let the tech advance sometimes having less features means having more features.

Yes they are.
Not every car or truck is equipped with the latest and greatest audiosystems with bluetooth audio (especially rentals). Not every wireless headphone is a high quality headphone. Why complain that our phones don't have enough battery-stamina yet we're gonna waste it even more by using wireless headphones which also need to be charged as well?
As for the SD-card. You obviously never had a phone being dropped (in water) or broken otherwise prior to uploading those last photo's taken? if you had then you wouldn't have made such a stupid comment!

Thats not my dream phone.
I have no problem to pay even a 2000 for a device if its worth its price but Samsung every single day proven they are not worth my money and thus i will never supports them by buying a Samsung device.
I rather pay for eqqual in specs Xiaomi which cost for example 250-300 bucks to made and is sold for 430 Mi9 for example. Having the same phone with a Samsung sticker on it for 400 bucks made and 1600 sold thanks no.
CptPower, 20 Feb 2019Well jack isnt essential also SD card slot in a phone which have 64 or more internal storage. ... moreIt isn't for you, but it is for me and many others. The criticisms against their removal is the reason why they are still around. Otherwise, all manufacturers will have followed the 'no storage expansion' and 'no headphone jack' model lead by the latest Pixel phones and iPhones. Dual sim would also would not have made its way to the iPhone if not for criticisms about its utter lack in the iphone.
IpsDisplay, 20 Feb 2019Don't romanticise criticism it's not a 1 to 1 like your putting it this so called criticism ha... moreOf course zoom WILL BE a numbers game. It will be a HUGE selling point and Huawei has started the race by posting a moon shot which, as I posted earlier, is actually the best yet I have seen coming from a smartphone with no external lens attachments or accessories. But just because it is the 'best' moon shot from any smartphone bar none doesn't mean it is good enough in terms image quality and that the upgrade to a longer zoom is worth it. You'll get way better moon shot from ANY smartphone regardless of brand if you use an external telephoto lens attachment, use manual controls and stabilize the phone and the external telephoto lens with a tripod. It will be cumbersome but at least, you'll get way better moon shots for less - no phone upgrade needed.
As I said, manufacturers will always try to convince smartphone users they need to upgrade regularly because of better zoom blah, blah, blah etc and better moin shots. Many (if not all of them) may actually mislead customers (mostly the naive Facebook users and selfie lovers) into thinking they've got the longest zooms by including crappy glorified digital zooms disguised as 'hybrid zoom', 'intelligent zoom' and some other fancy name they can think of.
So as you can see, I did not criticize for the sake of criticism. It's called educating the 'Facebook' generation how not to be swayed into upgrading their phones every year just because zooms have gotten longer and longer in the same way smartphone camera megapixels and RAM amounts are getting more and more insane as if those superfluous amounts matter to the majority of smartphone users who only use Facebook, Youtube and Candy crush.
I was able to take a phone like that using my g4 manual mode so nothing amazing for me

Criticism from the original comment I responded to was classing the zoom as just being for numbers sake implying a "zoom race"
Where did they provide useful critique of the feature where someone could reflect and improve upon?
Or is it that all critique must be protected and classified as good just for criticizing sake?
Lyndino, 20 Feb 2019What brand is this Note 7 you speak of?you know...the one with excessive heat and fire...from Total Recall movie.

And Samsung is not essential flagship.
There are lot more and cheaper flagships to buy which are equal in specs and features.
Xiaomi Mi 9 for example. Half or less than half the price but same tricks and quality.
Samsung can go Nuts.
They have confirmed more than the number of cameras. They have confirmed the focal length!
I am to lazy. Is someone going to do the math? GsmArena, maybe?
It looks like a really impressive telephoto lens.

And the 808 still does far better in many scenarios. Except lacking some new standards

I'm calling it already. P30 Pro will crush the competition in camera setup. Wait and watch! :D
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2019P20 pro and Mate20 were about 800 euro when released? So P30 pro will also be 800-900 euro pro... moreThe rest of the Chinese stick to being cheap, but Huawei has bigger ambitions such as becoming no1.
This means they have changed their image as a more premium smartphone maker to match apple and samsung who are their main competitors.
