    Name 1 man-made product that hasn't broken... You can't because anything man-made WILL break at some point or another. That said, some are just 'better' than others. Watch someone argue the definition of better lol.

    I'm talking strictly on the hardware aspect. I'm not a huge Samsung fan by any means but on the hardware wise it's hard to slight Sammy.

    I hear you. Samsung has stepped their game up last few years specs wise and build quality. The one thing I can't argue against Motorola are the radios they use in their devices. Cellular signal and WiFi is strong as can be and never had issues with call quality or download speed.

    Interesting

    "Google’s Mario Queiroz said that Google wants to make all-screen phones. And having a 3.5mm headphone jack inside the phone doesn’t fit with that design strategy.

    “The primary reason [for dropping the jack] is establishing a mechanical design path for the future,” Queiroz said. “We want the display to go closer and closer to the edge. Our team said, ‘if we’re going to make the shift, let’s make it sooner, rather than later.’ Last year may have been too early. Now there are more phones on the market.”

    That’s also why Google launched the Pixel Buds, a direct AirPods rival, but also a product that’s meant to “solve” the problem it created by removing the aging audio port.

    I can understand peeps wanting the jack..on the other hand it’s nice having more screen to view in smaller body ...if you include that adapter with phone you can still use jack ...more importantly let’s get better battery life all the way around like recent improvements with Moto and even Sammy

    All screen doesnt work because one must indeed actually hold the phone with hands which will overlap onto the display/edges to some degree. Hence laptops have palm rejection tech because you just cant get away from using those dang hands lol. And I didnt know headphone jacks were a problem. Mine never jumped on the screen nor did it bit my finger. More like, since Apple is getting extra $$$ outta you suckers we want that extra $$$ too!

    Here's hoping we can figure out your to control our phones with our minds.

    Voice control is helpful but I can't play a game with my voice

    I remember the first time I saw the Galaxy S6 Edge. I was blown away by how beautiful it looked. I was astounded that phones could look that crisp and bright. The shiny curves on the top and bottom. The edges on the side...so different.

    The Pixel 2 is meh compared to that phone as far as design goes. The pinnacle of Nexus design in my opinion was with the Nexus 6. I think it looks slightly better than the Nexus 6P, and way better than any Pixel. Why did they go down in design?

    Putting those huge bezels on the Pixel, and removing the headphone jack is like Google flipping us the bird. A big middle finger you can clearly see with the best camera.

    C'mon, when you got phones that are nearly the same size as the Pixel 2 XL, with microsd, with wireless charging, with IP68, with Infrared scanner, AND headphone jack, you better step up your game.

    And I actually don't really care about the headphone jack omission, but they didn't even include usb c earbuds in the box!!!!!!!
