I just bought a new phone recently and it's just so hard to find a good mid range phone with headphone jack. New Samsung A series doesn't have headphone jack anymore, so as Mi 8. So I bought poco f1 Non-removable battery ? Make sense. Notch ? Shitty trend that's annoying. Now my phone doesn't display notification badges. Longer screen for what ? My games still in 16:9 so I have 2 bezel of useless screen. Have never use any app that make use of notch yet. And who the fuck want to watch movies on thier phone with shitty cut out ? The "ear" so small it's useless. I wear glass or full face helmet when ride on bike so pls make usable fingerprint sensor pls. I know under display sensor is convenient and all but if shitty sensor that take forever to log in then no thanks (look at you A70) If you want chase trends, pls make equivalents without those shitty trend pls. I know you can.

I think everyone makes this a much bigger deal than it really is. “What if I want to use my phone while I’m charging it” Here’s an idea: you don’t need to be on your phone 24/7.

The claim at 3:15 is completely false. Your ears can only hear analog. "Digital" headphones must convert the signal back to analog anyway before it gets to your ears, which results in some loss; Therefore the analog headphone jack provides the best quality connection. The Apple Air pods connect using Bluetooth, which is WORSE quality than a wired connection because Bluetooth uses compression. The "waterproof" excuse is also false, as all Samsung phones since the S5 have been water resistant and included a headphone jack.

guess what, most companies are actually bringing back the headphone jack why ? cause first of all, its not a feature nor a option BUT something that can make or break a deal based on what the person need second, the usb-c headphones are now considered dead by companies and bluetooth didn't drop in price recently and third...its apple that did it first and everyone thought it would be a good idea, it didn't and now its coming back because there no sense in taking a feature that 'ahem' the silent majority screamed to have it back and for companies, when the majority scream, the companies must listen if they don't want to lose money

If analogue audio sounds worse than lightning or USB-C, why do mixing boards, amplifiers, PA systems (including ones used in freaking concerts for cryin' out loud) all use analogue connections? Not to mention, humans are animals and can only fucking hear analogue anyway.

I basically chose my phone (LG G7) because it has a built-in DAC with the best sound quality, and I have the headphones to go with it, I'd never touch a bluetooth-only device. Also, it's still waterproof. Hell, it even has a "boombox" feature with parts of the phone hollowed for better resonance if put on a table. And yet, they somehow managed to put 2 cameras in there, plus all the bells and whistles. It single-handedly destroys the stupid points of corporate apologetics.

I doubt many people will be willing to buy a pair of $200 ear plugs. I think any headphones under $200 will not see significant sound quality difference between 3.5mm jack and usb-c. I use USB DAC on my PC, but the DAC still connects to the headphone through 3.5mm jack. I see no reason that the DAC should connect to headphone through USB-C

Haven't watched the video all the way through. But the real reason why it's going extinct is because it saves the cellphone manufacturers money by not having to include the jack and people are dumb enough to say things like "just use Bluetooth headphones" or "Bluetooth is the same quality as analog" or "we like being screwed over so much we applaud cellphone companies for saving money while raising prices"

What extra features? My Xperia XZ1 has water resistance, a decent camera, fingerprint sensor, 2 day battery life, all the same high end features u get today.. AND a headphone jack. Also - if space is a premium that doesn't excuse Apple from excluding the headphone jack on their 13 INCH iPad Pro! there should be plenty of space there! so no.. its about corporate greed, as usual. They wanted to sell you more bluetooth headphones and dongles. admit it

Still think it's pretty stupid to get rid of such a good feature. I bought a pair of bluetooth headphones for 80 bucks, which I still cannot justify, and the best thing about them is that they dont catch on stuff as I'm walking/running. I can buy a pair of high bass JVC ear buds that last me a really long time from Wally World for 10 bucks without a stupid adapter and crank the volume all the way up without remorse.

So they have to remove the jack because it takes up too much room because they need to make the phone thinner and thinner. That's bull. Everyone just puts a thick cover on it to protect it because the darn things cost about $2000 now. Also, if they made the phones thicker they could put a larger battery in it. Thin and light is a decent feature. But they've gone too far.

If you support headphone jack at this point you are supporting audiophilia and the abuse of tech companies to continue relying on old technology. The same goes for any company who still releases products with microUSB instead of type C. I will never forgive the toxic HiFi community for promoting pseudoscience and constant shaming Bluetooth users and LoFi listeners. #MuteHeadphoneJack #MuteHJ #LeavingHiFiLand

Apple's excuses are just stupid, take a look at Samsung. Better battery, better storage, waterproof and still has a headphone jack. It can even fit a pen inside.

You know, I'd be willing to forgive the merciless slaughter of the headphone jack if there was an EQUALLY convenient solution. Such as, say, maybe using NFC to instantly pair headphones to the phone. But as it currently stands, to pair bluetooth headphones, you need to: 1. Stop whatever you're doing 2. Go to the home screen 3. Launch a settings app 4. Navigate any number of menus to make your way to the Bluetooth menu 5. Attempt to identify your particular device 6. Spend a few seconds pairing it which can take upwards of a MINUTE to accomplish. For an entire industry focused on simplicity and convenience, this amount of faffery required to accomplish what should be a simple task is completely unacceptable. For many people, having to deal with the wire is LESS INconvenient than the ridiculous setup process.

If you don't have a headphone jack, I'm not buying your phone. End of. I'm a practical kind of person. I enjoy fashion but when I spend a lot of money I go for timelessness. Quality. I'm finding the trends with phones these days are getting more than a little stupid. I don't need a phone to be all screen and paper thin. I need it to last the day and do everything I need it to in an intuitive manner. When I look for a phone it needs to tick the boxes. How long does its battery last in heavy use? Does it lag? What is its camera like? Can it handle the apps I use? Does it have a massive amount of bloatware and is it easily removable? Does it handle GPS well? ...Does it have a headphone jack. I use bluetooth headphones daily for long periods of time. They have a downside. If you get a good pair you're shelling out at least $200. They need charging. My ones last the day but sometimes you forget to charge or your plug isn't in right and then you're not using them. Sometimes you go into a space that disconnects them. That's just how it is. They're convenient only in the freedom of movement way. For my phone I like to use normal headphones. Bluetooth + media is a battery drain that means you'll be hooking your phone up to a brick of a powerbank and hoping it charges faster than you're draining. If that sounds good to you ...go for it. Forget to charge your headphones and you're suddenly using a wired headset, only you're also draining your phone battery faster so you're a mess of wires. Good job. If you want me to drop $800 -$1200 on a phone, you're going to have a headphone jack. Or you're going to fuck off. I have no interest in such a substandard product. My current outdated phone has a headphone jack and the ability to connect a headset. That's what I expect and if you don't provide it you can charge some poor, stupid sod a kidney for your runway special and miss out on the business of the majority.

Amazing comment and same here,If the device doesn't have the headphone jack I won't buy it. I don't know what's the need to keep on removing vital components on devices these days. What's next, no charging port. It looks like we're headed for that future, the one where phones are prettier but at the cost of throwing at the window convenience, practicality, and usability.

the Headphone Jack has been around since 1877 and is the standard in the audio world and is not going anywhere. I like to use my AKG studio headphones I have been using since almost 10 years. Fact is, Audio equiment will outlive most phones and they are based on headphone jacks. so apple can go fuck themselves.
