[Poll] How would you feel if Samsung didn’t include a 3.5mm audio jack on the Galaxy S8?


Last updated: April 17th, 2020 at 12:27 UTC+02:00

If you’ve been following news from the technology industry recently, I’m sure you’re aware of Apple’s rumored decision to remove the traditional 3.5mm audio jack from its upcoming iPhone 7. Instead, it will release a handful of headphones in partnership with Beats that have been specifically designed to work with its homegrown Lightning connector. The Cupertino company is also expected to take the wraps off a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter, which will enable customers to use their own earphones with the handset.

What we’d love to know how you’d feel if Samsung followed in Apple’s footsteps by dropping the 3.5mm audio plugin from the Galaxy S8 in favor of the flurry of USB Type-C headsets that are set to hit the market from leading manufacturers, including Audio-Technica, Beats, Bowers & Wilkins, Sennheiser, and Sony. Let us know your thoughts by selecting one of the options from the poll below, and by leaving a more detailed comment in the section at the bottom of this page.
