Slowly, but surely, companies were relentless in reducing the number of ways you can interface with your phone or mobile device, as the number of ports became less and less. It is now common for mobile devices to have just one port, eliminating the additional storage options and complicating the process of getting data to and from the device (not to mention headphones that run out of juice),.
Now we see the future of the mobile device…
What that means is that even the way you charge the battery is wireless, not to mention that you will need to buy brand new peripherals to do so much as get a photo off of it and onto a desktop. I wonder when PC users will have to throw away all of their USB sticks, external hard-drives, backup power supplies, speakers, keyboards, mice, and tons of other things when PC makers start going this route, as I know Apple’s desktop solutions are already most of the way there. At the least, it is a good thing the Windows ecosystem is slow on this front.
To note, that doesn’t even cover the wrap-around screen, which itself is a can of worms which eliminates the ability to have a protective case (if you value using it to the fullest). I would expect the 0 port design to make its way to other brands soon if this takes off, with it only being useful if you need to film underwater or something, but who cares about peripherals lasting more than 1-3 years anyway?
