My only real problem with the disappearing headphone jack is that they don't seem too have any real plans to add digital headphone ports in laptops. (I may have missed one that has it?)

It's 2019 and I'm still not buying 'jackless' phones. Wirelessness isn't necessary if we talk about headphones and it doesn't make your life easier at all.

The convince. Keep the Jack on the non flagship phone. That way we who do not rely on hype can choose which features we want. Also allows the option to test odd ideas on the non primary consumer.

I swear, if Apple does something we go around and say they lied about doing it first, then they are actually one of the first to do something and everyone jumps on Apple for doing it. Just buy an older iPhone or an Android device, its that easy.

If you like inferior sound and brain tumours go wireless.

Nonsense. We need headphone jack.
Felix Maier
What do you mean "poor sound quality"? The best available, the one the professional industry uses (among some others). There is also USB, but nothing provides *better* quality than gold plated jack & cable. Certainly not those pods.

It's pure greed. All other answers are invalid.

Samsung the S10 still has it has a headphone Jack

i got in a bit of a debate with a coworker about this a few months back. he has an iPhone and i said how stupid it was for them not to have an audio jack. he went on about how everything is going Bluetooth and if i really need an audio jack its cause i am just to cheap to buy anything quality.
well i now exclusively use true wireless headphones while he is still using a dongle for his standard headphones. and i still standby what i say because i keep a pair of regular headphones with me just in case the batteries die or the Bluetooth has issues.


i just found this whole thing quite funny and one the reasons i hate apple products...they are successful because they instill a mindset not because they sell quality products. not that some of their stuff isn't good but not so good it deserves this cult mentality around the company and their products.

I don’t want to hear anyone tell me that Bluetooth audio sounds better. They’re lying. Using a headphone jack takes it vantage of your Dac (digital to analog converter) an analog signal always sounds better than a wireless signal.

It doesn't take much space if they design correctly

Well, your lips look like you just eate spaghetti :D

*Apple owning the majority of the wireless headphone market intensifies*

I wonder how diehard Samsung fans feel about the removal of headphone jack from the Note 10
Ax El
Samsung and LG say 'Hi, we can still make space for almost everything else you could want with a jack'
