I don't like the ditching of the 3.5mm headphone jack at all but if that is to make it water prove then it is for a worthy course else there is no need what so ever to remove the headphone jack pot at all. Some of us we listen to music more in our earphone a lot. May be they can add Bluetooth earphones in the box to make up for it. That will be a new dimension and will be amazing.
guynextdoor, 05 May 2017People are really stupid. Posting comments about who copies or what. Can't you understand abou... moreand suddenly android fan wants to claim that their android phone already get rid the jack before apple did ...
when apple did for the first time get rid the jack , look how people made fun of like apple already rid the jack since 2001
who care... its not apple , so we dont have to made fun of it .... its innovation !
apple copy Honor 9
ET TU Huawei.
Oh well,good thing there are wireless headphones that work on bluetooth....
Anonymous, 06 May 2017I won't be buying another if this is the case.It's a pity as I truly enjoyed the Honor 8. The few things to make it actually better were ditching the glass at the back for something less fragile, wireless charging and perhaps make it a mm thicker to accommodate a bigger battery.
Alas. It took less time for the Chinese to ruin their own products than the Koreans. Tsssk Tsssk Tsssk.
techlover1, 05 May 2017Now the Honor 9 too, it is the most insignificant thing to do. First Motorola (Lenovo), then A... moreThe Honor 8 was perfect.
The fingerprintsensor at the right place, improved even better with the button function.
Headphone jack, USB-type C, fast charging, sensible FHD resolution instead of battery- and performace wasting QHD.
The only thing that could be done to make Honor 8 better was wireless charging. Then THAT device would be the perfect smartphone.
But now they completely ruined it. First the ridiculous QHD screens. and now the ditching of the audio-jack. It seems that my Honor 8 will be my first and last Honor. :-(
Is there anyone who can design a connection port which one end connects to the phone port type c and the other end with three ports allowing connection with type C or micro usb to ear phones, charging devices and one more useful device which will enhance the user experience. This will help many people to use the phone without headphone jack.
Removable batteries have been sealed in for better IP rating
Micro USB has been replaced by USB C for more convenient cable, faster data transfer speed, and lesser charging time.
Headphone jack has been replaced by what?
Note7 owner, 05 May 2017Who uses wired headphones in 2017? Get with the program people. *cough*guys that don't want to waste battery life on Bluetooth*cough*
*cough* people who don't have money for wireless headphones*cough*
*cough*people who hate apples guts*cough*
I feel sick...
won't buy it then, go on copy stupid apple with headphone jack removal along with htc 11 which is another joke, htc do superb audio but spoilt it now.
Stop killing the 3.5mm headphone jack. There are few things in a smartphone as important, widely-used yet under-appreciated as the 3.5mm jack.
OMG still complaining about this, USB - type C will be the new standard, get over it. get mp3 player if you like to listening to music all the time or get a good pair of Bluetooth headphones or just get a freaking 3.5mm adapter. damn!
huawei is now iphone copy 100% after p9 .. and mate 9 ..
they gone sht ..
