Weekly poll results: don't you dare touch the headphone jack, Samsung

Peter, 18 December 2016

The message is resoundingly clear - a Samsung Galaxy S8 without a 3.5mm headphone jack is going to be met with great resistance from fans. Almost half of voters in our poll picked this option, indicating that it’s a deal-breaker.

Many brought up a removable battery, but this particular ship seems to have sailed. The fate of the Home button, however, is yet to be decided and a quarter of voters also picked this as a must-have. The fingerprint reader was almost a bigger concern than the button itself - where will it be, how will it work and so on.

The lack of a dual-camera or a design that removes bezels too aggressively proved to be minor concerns. Many point out that a single camera can perform just as well as a dual-camera (the low-light performance of the Pixel phones is a good example).
