Samsung is keeping the headphone jack alive in its latest flagship phones, the Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, and even in the smaller S10E. All of the latest Galaxy S10 phones have 3.5mm headphone jacks so you won’t need a dongle or Bluetooth headphones or earbuds to listen to music.

Samsung’s latest flagships among a couple dozen phones that still manage to retain the headphone jack, and expand the category a bit for those looking for a new phone that preserves the port.

Apple, Google, OnePlus, and many other companies have done away with their headphone jacks. If you’ve ever found yourself stuck with drained Bluetooth buds and without the dongle necessary for plugging in a backup pair of headphones, you’ll probably appreciate Samsung’s decision to keep the jack around. And it certainly makes life easier for people who want to charge their phone and listen to music at the same time.
