What it has is a Dead on Arrival sticker on it. Huawei made sure of that.
kiasunkiasi, 22 Feb 2019with so much real estate space for that phone, Samsung can't even put in one 3.5mm jack?
they... moreWhathewer they reason was to not put jack was a good reason and i agree with it.
Hope they will continue with this reason on any upcomming device they make.
dReXtremeR, 22 Feb 20192000 pricetag, and dont even a 0.07 cents headphone jack, thats a scam.Thats real. Its first device next S lines will have no jack too.
Or why do you think they added a wireless earpbuds in an S10 box???
It will not be easy to remove 100 years old technology although everything has its lifetime
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2019I understand what you're saying but you can't blame Apple for the removal of the headphone jac... moreapple just do their own way , got notch and remote the jack
And other android follow , they blame apple for starting it ...
Then , their android do their own way remove the notch , they complaining apple not innovated.....
Really weird people this day ....
I was just watching a movie called "Thrill Seekers" A 1999 movie. At 00:36:00 there is a very similar tablet to Galaxy Fold.
Ekimolaos, 22 Feb 2019You have no clue of good quality sound, do you?Im 54 years old now and think i tried the most out there, also good quality sound for my music.
For me, my phone is a phone as no. 1, music, camera etc. coming after.
So in my world, i listen the good quality sound in my home. And when im out, the music i hear is okay, but not like home, jack or no jack.

Yes Apple has a strong influence but it's still a decision made by a company on which way they want to go...keep the headphone jack/notch or remove it/don't offer it.
Trying to blame one company because other companies follow their lead is wrong and stupid. There are a lot of companies (cars, fashion, etc) that don't follow market trends and are still successful.
If Apple does something and then other companies follow then it's on them, don't blame Apple. At the end of the day iOS is small beans (in overall numbers not revenue when compared to the juggernaut that is Android OS) so it's up to the manufactures using Android OS to make their own trends instead of following Apple...
Vyshak, 22 Feb 2019But samsung is bundling galaxy buds in the box itself to compensate that. Nobody mentions that. Ummm...how do you know Samsung is bundling the Galaxy Buds for free? Just because they come in the box doesn't mean you aren't paying from them.
Marketing something that comes in the box as "free" is a great marketing/advertising trick so you think you're getting something for free when you're really paying for it.
I'm sure the Galaxy Fold would have a lower price if the "free" Galaxy Buds weren't included in the box...
Miscellaneous, 22 Feb 2019Don't get me wrong I have a headphone jack on my phone so this comment might be redundant XD, ... moreThat reasoning is hard to justify when almost all of Samsung & LG flagship phones & half of Huawei's flagships (M20, M20x) continue to offer the highest end features along with the headphone jack...

I may never buy a phone with a price tag higher than $1000, and I may settle for wireless headphones. But I like expandable and removable memories, and can't see myself getting a phone without a memory slot.
