1. Physical Keyboard

In the past, all phones use a physical keyboard. Phones like Nokia and Sony Ericsson use them. This keyboard developed into QWERTY as embedded on the BlackBerry. But the physical keyboard is replaced by a touch screen (touchscreen).

At the beginning of its presence, the touch screen is still not responsive and convenient to use. Some devices incorporate touch screen and physical keyboard, such as BlackBerry Storm.

As time passes, touch screen technology is getting more sophisticated and slowly the physical keyboard is abandoned. Even so, there are still a handful of the latest smartphone that uses a physical keyboard, the BlackBerry KEYOne.

2. Trackball / Trackpad

Since there is no touch screen, a trackball or trackpad is needed to move the cursor. Unfortunately, this feature is not free from criticism. For example, the trackball is stuck inside, or the design of the trackpad is not solid.

Unfortunately, by 2016 this trend has subsided. Even HTC abandoned their initial concept by putting the HTC 10 speakers at the bottom.

4. Removable Batteries

For a long time, Apple used non-removable batteries. At that time, Samsung and LG not want to use battery planting. Finally, they melt and follow Apple's steps.

One of the reasons they switched to planting batteries was the endurance of water and dust. Removable batteries are relatively more susceptible to water. This feature is not found in today's smartphones. Even if there are, only a handful of phones with a particular brand.

5. Headphone Jack

The loss of headphone jack on the smartphone has become a hot conversation lately. Popular smartphones like HTC, Motorola, and Apple have removed the headphone jack. Although there are still many smartphones that use it, this trend began to decrease.
