lol wtf just make it a bit thicker if that's the case ... seriously, we won't mind.
GrumpyHumpy, 05 May 2017USB C was made for faster data transfer speed and performance, as well as faster charging time... moreActually, a lot of phones have excellent DACs, the best you can buy on the market. The Mi5 uses the SA9018k2m, the best available DAC at the time. The LG V20, uses the SA9028Q2M. Again, the best DAC you can buy at the time. These are the same DACs they use in $2000 home theatre systems, top class studio sound cards, etc. DACs really aren't that expensive, and in a competitive smartphone world they often put in the best.
This is a sad trend. It is unfortunate that phone manufacturers are trying to copy Apple without considering the needs of the consumer.
Floppy disc had something better to replace it. But the headphone jack is still a very good option for better sound output.
Anonymous, 05 May 2017why do oem's hate 3.5mm jack?Because the presence of them is one less opportunity to make money out of customers
Say there are 2 phones, 1 with headphone jack and another one without headphone jack.
The phone with headphone jack has 3000mah battery capacity. The phone without headphone jack has 3350mah battery capacity.
Say, the phone 1 has 6hrs sot with media running.
And you can use your headphone (with wire)
Phone 2 has 6hrs 30m with media running with headphone connected to the phone via the adaptor.
Person wants less wires to carry so he buys a Bluetooth headset. Now the phone 2 gives only 6hrs sot and Bluetooth headset only 5hrs?
Who wants to sacrifice everything for the mere 350mah battery and waste your time charging your headset and phone. Or carrying your adaptor and loosing it somewhere everytime.
Don't bash me with comments. This is just my theory against those companies removing the headphone jack ( see apple wanted to sell airpods and gain profit so they removed headphone jack, why are you guys removing the jack for silly reason?)
Oven, 05 May 2017Just make the DAMN phone 0.01 mm thicker for more battery.I know right. Vivo x5max with 4.75mm thickness still keep the headphone jack. Its 2300mah battery have 71hrs endurance rating too. So, Xiaomi, what your excuses? Unless that new 3350mah battery gives 200hr endurance rating I say all of this is bullshit.
This is just a very stupid reason
Let me worry about battery life
Rather than make me go through use of adaptor than have wire everywhere
Whats wrong with these manufacturers
This is stupid... Why flagship doesnt have 3.5mm jack but the low and midrange have it? And the price.
Just buy a pair of skullcandy smokin buds 2 bluetooth headphones. They rock
i wonder if apple doesn't removed the 3.5mm jack, would xiaomi remove the jack and told this alibi :))
Anonymous, 05 May 2017Noppe, the phone needs to be simplified. A universal port will never truly become universal I ... moreUSB C was made for faster data transfer speed and performance, as well as faster charging time, but barely for audio quality
Sure, it can help fix distorted soundwaves, but are they capable of having a proper high end DAC to give the user an amazing audio experience?
Smartphones are still far from the quality of audio jack of PCs and some other sound equipments, but it's a big shame to go worse than what we have today with smartphones
LG V20, HTC 10, ans Axon 7 - all of them are well-applauded for phenomenal glory hole quality, but I never heard the iPhone 7/7+ or U Ultra being praised for the same with USB C headphone jack (what "glory hole" to me means)
