If you want a big phone, there are a lot of choices out there, such as S21+, Oneplus 8 Pro, Xiaomi 11, Note 20 Ultra, Motorola X30, Google Pixel 6 Pro. This phone is not for you. No need to stay here. This phone is a gem, a treat for people looking for small phones, as not many of them exist anymore, even in the budget range.

Why would you not want to use the same headphones you used ten years ago? Have they gotten worse? Could it possibly be because you got cheap crap that was never good in the first place?

There is no way I would want to use the headphones I used fifty years ago, back in the early seventies. Heck I wouldn't even use the ones I had five years ago.
Besides why would I need to. I get a free pair of wireless buds every time I buy a new Galaxy S phone anyway.

I was hoping the S22 would stay the same size or get slightly larger. Not smaller. Because of the smaller size I am considering not trading in my S21 for an S22. And waiting for the S23.
Although it really depends on the price. If the rumored price is $100 more than the S21 then I probably won't get the S22. Unless the trade in vale of my S21 is increased. If I can get a 256GB S22 for $300 after trade in. Which would be the same price my launch 256GB S21 cost after trade in. Then there is still a good chance I will get the S22.

With multiple Galaxy S models. From LG, Sony, and now Samsung. They have all paired with any phone I've owned with zero issues. I pair it once. Then it pair automatically when I turn it on. BT pairing has always worked great with my BT ear pieces and my Galaxy S phones.
Guys, I have noticed that Samsung made a compact A10e and A20e, but didn't make a S20e, just makes me mad. They could easily. But they didn't. Fortunately, they are making the S22 small.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 202299% of people don't care about the "quality" difference. Irrelevant.Okay? And is that 1% worth removing basic functionality over? That 1% you're describing includes people like the disabled and elderly. That 1% includes people who would rather spend $50 on a great sounding pair of headphones that will last their actual entire lifetime instead of $250 on a mediocre pair of headphones that will be unusable and unrepairable in 8 years' time.
There is absolutely nothing you can say that will make the omission of the headphone jack sound like anything except anti-consumer practices to extract more money from the consumer. And the fact that you are staunchly defending this just shows how brainwashed you are by these companies.
Why not snapdragon for international market? Samsung always does so. Us/china 888 others can use any piece of metal why

Look, most companies have moved on from putting headphone jacks in flagships. Complaining won't do anything. It's better if you support the companies who still put jack in flagships, such as Sony, [LG] and Asus, as that will make them continue to do it.

You're right, we're in 2022 now. We should stop with the removal and worsening of basic phone functionality. The only "going backwards" here is phone companies raising the prices while simultaneously stripping away features. Just because you don't use it, doesn't mean "most people" don't use it.

However, for the average person, bluetooth pairing is a fucking nightmare, especially when using third-party buds that can play fast and loose with expected bluetooth device behavior, and the easily understandable and consistent experience of just plugging a metal connector into an appropriately shaped hole and getting your audio immediately wins out 99% of the time.

Every corner I go, I hear someone complain. Maybe some guys did use S20 on 60Hz 1440p and didn't give a crap about 120Hz, but Samsung fully took this out of the equation... and paid dearly for it.
