          Do not buy any phone without headjack, if you do not like them to be gone. What is even the problem. You arent a consume junkie, arent you?

            The only problem with the galaxy buds is that the cases are bad

                      I don't think I would have to worry about phone quality. I was always stupid enough to remove my earphones from the jack and answer the call as if I couldn't make calls with my earphones for some reason, even if I knew that I could.

                                                      Why did linus say that the buds having better isolation was a bad thing?

                                                        Ya know, one of the reasons I didnt buy the galaxy buds is not only because the lypertek tevis are superior and a better price, but also cus i wanted to protest with my wallet against samsung. Had I known that the s10's had a headphone jack, I might have bought one of those instead, even tho I literally got a brand new note 10+ straight from samsung for about the same price as the note 9 this year
