And the point is that it's being taken away for... morenormal consumers don't care
they don't know shit about phones
things like size and color mean more to them

99,9% are not audiophiles and the companies can sell earbuds
it's all about making as much money as possible
most don't care fanboys are not a big part of their market
BigDisplay, 29 May 2020Same here, Jack can go sleep now, he is to old now. Go tell that to professional musicians and people in audio-related work. Wireless audio is still way too far behind wired in latency and fidelity.
BigDisplay, 29 May 2020Same here, Jack can go sleep now, he is to old now. What? I can't hear you..
Oh, I need to charge the headphones??!
What's next?! We'll need to charge the charging cable??!
1 - excessive Bluetooth radiation causes cancer and brain tumors
2 - battery life wasn't great to begin with, now you can cut that in half
3 - Oh no! I've lost my left headphone!!
4 - you're in the middle of a good movie when suddenly you can't hear anything : Battery low! Wait 30mins to watch the rest of the movie..
5 - Good luck trying to save your falling phone by catching it by the wireless headphones hahaha
6 - Good luck trying to use them after 2-3 years: " Yeah man, like I said, they were the bomb when I got them, but now... The battery dies after 5 minutes.."
And this is why my next phone will be Sony Xperia 1 II. The headphone jack is back! Sorry Samsung! You ditched the 3.5mm jack, I ditch you! Hello Sony!

And the point is that it's being taken away for zero reason or benefit to us. They are flat out lying when they say there's no room or they were able to squeeze in more than 1 to 3% more battery. Which is insignificant and you lose more than the with bluetooth.
But its removed for zero benefit for us. Forcing people to have no alternative to bluetooth or their charge ports wearing out quicker.
For those insane prices i want a much more well build and quality phone... I'm sure it comes in 2 or 3 years.
Then I'm ready for buying a fold phone.
But i think some other brands will bring some good quality phones for the table.
I will waiting for Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 ESCOBAR Edition with half price haha~
Aldwin123, 28 May 2020It feels like the HINGE Mechanism is invisble to your eyes and brainHeadphone jack, expandable storage, removable battery, NFC and wireless charging? You don't need all of those stupid useless features, this new nifty hinge mechanism is all you need! It'll do all you want to and more! Who needs dumb practical features anyway!
Tech's not ready.
Dual Folds + internal screen is doing everything wrong.
Triple ("S") fold + a screen that also double for phone use is the future.
Anonymous, 27 May 2020And still not having 3.5mm port. And on a device like this the already bogus space or battery ... more3.5mm is dead give it up. Don't be a freak buy an adapter. I can both charge and use my old headphones via a usb c to 3.5mm + charging adapter.
A seperate port for audio was a bad idea anyway, happy to see it dead.
Aldwin123, 28 May 2020It feels like the HINGE Mechanism is invisble to your eyes and brainWow!!!! You're right I so totally just happened to completely forget this was a folding phone!!!!!
It seems the sheer size and fact that there are two halves are invisible to your eyes and brain....
Anonymous, 27 May 2020Vote with your wallet people: just say no.Why? Most surely there are people with the money and desire to buy this phone, that you can not afford it, or like it, in no way indicates that EVERYONE out there will agree with you
Real.Talk, 28 May 2020What if I want to listen to music or have a video call with headphones on while also charging ... moreThat adapter exists, just seach on AliExpress, i got one from there and they work flawless while listen music trought 3.5mm and charging at same time without audio quality loss.
I will definitely buy a foldable someday, but what I want is a normal sized phone when folded and a full fledged tabled when unfolded.
