no physical button got pro and cons , but 3/4 edge experience might be possible , think the top part still need to have some space for sensor and camera

No physical means no chance of button mechanical failure, which is a good thing. I'm happy with it as long as it has better battery life than my S7 Edge . Other specs doesn't matter as much though.

I still prefer the physical home button. I have a oneplus one and a few other phones with no home button and it's irritating when at night you pick up the phone and answer it upside down. Lol.

There's no reason not to have the head phone jack... Apple removed it cos their camera module was too thick... their i7 phones are particularly slim either?

I guess headphone jack will still be around for at least 1-2 more generations. No benefit for Samsung to remove. Apple gets royalty from those headphone manufacturers using lightning cable but Samsung doesn't get any royalties from there Bluetooth technology or USB.

quite true , manufacturer would definitely factor in royalties cost into products they make which in turn earn from consumers , if SS plan to make full screen , guess is space for hardware should be plentiful

Don't think Samsung will go the "no headphone jack" route since during the Note 7 keynote, they specifically announced that it comes with a headphone jack. So S8 most likely will have it.
