Today’s high-end smartphones are impressive beasts, featuring plenty of power, versatile camera setups, and huge batteries. In saying so, many flagship phones (and even mid-rangers) lack features that used to be extremely common a decade ago.

So that got us wondering which increasingly uncommon or downright rare smartphone feature you’d bring back if given the choice. You can take your pick via the poll below or choose “other” and leave a comment if you’ve got a pick that isn’t on the list.

Which smartphone feature would you resurrect?

Headphone ports, IR blasters, and microSD card slots are three of the most recent features to start disappearing on smartphones. On the other end of the spectrum, removable batteries and physical keypads haven’t been available on the majority of phones for years now.

Either way, you can give us your choice by taking the poll. You can also leave a comment if you want to elaborate on your decision.
