If there’s one smartphone trend I detest, its the increasing lack of headphone jacks — especially on flagship models. Perhaps its because I fear change. Or because relying on wireless headphones sucks. Either way, I’m not into it, and I know a lot of you aren’t either.

Even if a massive news story breaks while I'm out in the field. Even if the office is on fire. </p> <p>After being spoilt by flagship phones for the past few years, it's difficult to tell how I'll go. Will it be fine, or am I going to go into a rage blackout? Let's see.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 Is The Best Big Phone

Since the beginning, the big honking screens on Galaxy Note phones have been their most memorable characteristic. But as the rest of the smartphone world caught onto the jumbo display trend and screen sizes from various makers started to converge around six-inch displays, the throne on which Samsung’s Note phones lorded over lesser devices just didn’t have the same kind of sway. So now, the question is. What’s the purpose of a big arse flagship handset in 2018, especially one that starts at pearl-clutching price of $1,499?
