I think the idea is good in upgrading the sound quality of audio but the implementation is bad very bad many people are disagree and disappointed just look an example a good implementation is the rca cable to hdmi all appliances with rca port have also hdmi port. Why they don't copy this instead?

The same with micro-nano SIM cards - the phones are HUGE but they make SIM cards smaller and smaller to save on space? It's just politics. 3.5mm jacks are used on computers, hi-fi equipment, stereos, basically everywhere except some day in phones. This is almost like the old days when every phone had a different charging port and no headphones jack and you needed an adapter to listen to music. I think I still have one Motorola with MicroUSB but no 3.5mm jack, I never bought an adapter for it. Nokia had something called "pop port" as well. Sony Ericsson and Samsung too. And now we'll have the same problems. History repeats again...
I don't agree with this, and this "we do it because blah blah blah thin form factor blah blah blah space considerations is utter garbage because an audio jack module can be as small as 5x5x15mm. They obviously want to kill the analog output because of DRM reasons. Don't fall for their lies!
its not weird when after this all phone will get rid the jack ....
but they must release it quickly before apple did , soo everybody will said apple copy other ~
The solution is pritty simple ,All the OEM'S should Leave the 3.5mm jack alone and do whatever improvements they think is needed to improve the sound quality and all the smart stuff with the new Usb Type C or the Micro Usb connecters ,I mean,No one is saying "No" to the audio improvements and improvements with the headphones BUT NOT at the cost of a 3.5mm jack which has always been relaible audio source.Its as simple as that.. LOL..
we all have a standard at one point if we stuck with the basics or standards and never improved we wouldn't have smartphones or anything we do now its the future and we will always have old tech its your choice to join the future or stay in the past
What a stupid idea.
3.5mm is the standard for all high quality stereo headsets so mucking around with audio connectors will be something the audio industry will fight against. Anyway we have stereo Bluetooth on phones so if there going to do anything maybe they should remove it altogether.
I'm so excited to see oems and manufacturers to move forward and abandon the analog 3.5mm jack. There's just so much more that could be accomplished with the usb type c standard.

USB-C is a next-generation industry standard that allows fast charging, high speed data transfer, HD Video & digital audio Â—all in one simple sturdy reversible connector; This is the future.
TBH we al think this is a bad idea now but I think this is basically how technology works it evolves and if you don't evolve with it you get left in the dust like a tracfone customer trying to turn on their basic phone
"Space constraints are also in play, especially as phones get ever slimmer but people want them to come with larger and larger batteries."
Wow this is the most stupidest thing I ever heard!
So how much more battery will relieve?50mAh?!?at most.You just need to see a smartphone open for servicing to realise how much space is wasted with bad internal design,so this is certainly the largest hoax of them all.
And the same is applied to the thicknes.Every phone with 5mm thicknes can accomodate the 3.5mm jack with easy!

that thing exist for almost 40 years and almost all of the audio device using it .
Well type c port will replace 3.5 mm headphone jack in future but it will take time a lot of time. Even usb type c ports are coming to some high end laptops and some mobile devices but 3.5 mm headphone jack is still widely popular just like type A usb port and to replace type a usb port it will take a long time.
In other sense ports like usb b type, thunderbolt port and firewire port comes with lots of functionality but they are not able to make their wide presence so let's see what type of reaction did usb type c port receive from market and as well as from OEM.
AnonD-442158, 27 Apr 2016Only when supported headphones becomes as readily available as the analog ones that it replace... moreOMG NOT 30-60 ***HOUR*** charge!!! I mean minutes. Seriously, GSMA used to allow editing of our comments back in the day... But I admit it is my fault.... only nowadays things are less forgiving
Only when supported headphones becomes as readily available as the analog ones that it replaces. Meanwhile people would have to resort to OTG HUB just as one of the commenter said. Richer ones can afford Bluetooth headphones, but their battery consumption (what was it, 4-6 hours? from a full charge?) is still too much of a problem for now. Not to mention all the new features the USB C will bring to your necks and ears may need even more power.
But one of the new features is a good one, with USB C now you can charge your Bluetooth headphones on the go, while listening to it simultaneously.
Conclusion: I'm in. Provided that the headphones supported QC, Wireless by Bluetooth/Wifi/NFC, will last at least 12-18 hours of playback from local (phone SD card, not Spotify or stuff) storage out of 30-60 hour charge, widely available which means pricing and service centers will be reasonable, weigh less than/equal to regular existing analog Bluetooth headphones, foldable into half of its operational size, and comes with a hard sturdy case that slim and small enough to safely go into my small bag. And a whole dozen range of colors to choose from.
Things I don't care: Magnetic Charging.
