Anonymous, 19 Dec 2017If it's not broken, don't fix it. Long live 3.5mm Jack. I agree.
my old xperia x8 had a heaphone jack, my nexus 5 had one, now my oneplus 5T has one too and my next device will have it too. I depend on the headphone jack too much, everyday i plug in my expensive wired heaphones for the true 7.1 immersive sound that no earplugs not wireless ones can provide.

Yet it failed to kill 3.5mm jack even after 15 years.. And it is not going to even in the years to come simply because 3.5mm jack is universal and used in much more audio applications/devices than just phones.. PC/Laptop/Amplifiers/Home entertainment/Radio/Music player/Studio/Disc Jockey so on and so forth all rely on the 3.5mm jack.. You will see in the future the phone maker will do a U-turn and revive the 3.5mm jack.. Same as Apple will revive the Touch ID after Face ID flop

Brandsheep, 19 Dec 2017I remember having Bluetooth on my Motorola before 3.5mm jack started appearing on phones. But ... moreSeriously, I laugh when people try to tell me bluetooth is future or wireless headphones is future, they probably don't know A2DP has been around a long time, they think (by and large) the moment Apple released Air Pods is the moment bluetooth all of a sudden became future. I used to have Moto stereo bluetooth headsets long time before Apple had epiphany that wireless audio is future, got irritated because of having to charge it every time. The removal of that jack is greedy attempt on monetizing wireless headphone accessory market that is still largely untapped. Sometimes truth is right there in your face staring and people think it can't be that obvious and find convoluted logic to defend their favorite brands. The sooner they get out of that brand slavery, the better it's for all consumers in general. Google mocked Apple and now doing same sh*t, no wonder they launched their own wireless headphones this year, the very year they got rid of headphone jack. It seems consumer market is now becoming beta testing market for these companies who either can't afford decent QA budget or are too greedy to spend time and money on releasing products which are polished in terms of QC....

I guess I need to replace my TV and Home theater to get those that use only Bluetooth and dongles as audio output.
Wireless is the future. Lot of people still hold on to headphone jack not because they don't know wireless is better but they don't want Apple to win again leading the way to the future
It's not reasonable, an expensive things also known as pixel 2/2xl
Obi Wan Kenobi, 19 Dec 2017Serves them right for removing the ever-reliable 3.5 mm headphone jack from their phones.Yeah.
Just use bluetooth head set people, its as good as the old headphone jack maybe even better, the headphone jack is dead, get over it and move on
Obi Wan Kenobi, 19 Dec 2017Serves them right for removing the ever-reliable 3.5 mm headphone jack from their phones.Get over the headphone jack, bluetooth is the future, embrace it, stop living in the past

Google pixel 2 xl= the beta machine.
Even though other screen related issues are fixed, the blueish tint issue is actually an issue, that cannot be fixed due to that stupid LG made P-OLED screen. I tried reading articles having a grey background on the screen while lying down on bed , the tint distracts and is bothersome.
And now the headphone issue. Google, yeah, the name is google, actually made a fan-tastic performing smartphone that is in the beta stage and is its name is "Pixel 2 XL" accompanied by a younger brother named "Pixel 2" with lesser issues.
