Anonymous, 21 Jan 2018Valid point. But the removal of minijack will push the tech faster forwardNo it won't as long as people are happy with what's being rammed down their throats.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2018no jack means less cables means less untangling means a happier me. Come on No it doesn't. It only means less choice but whatever you choce, there will still be cables. I hate bluetooth headphones exactly because of the need to charge them (Well that and the extremely limited lifespan).

Removing jack is healthy for your braincells also less bacteria will get contact with your ears. :-)

Everyday plenty of people dies due to listening loud music outside not hearing a horn from car, train, bus, bike etc.
Also your ears could finaly have some peace quiet and rest s its good for your braincells as well.
Kyo, 21 Jan 2018Except iPhone no other phone without a 3.5mm Jack has been successful.Need I say anymore.Man allm phnes were great without jack.
Razer phone for example.
pika2000, 21 Jan 2018Meh.
In the next few years, people will move on when almost all companies ditch the jack. Mot... moreYeah, people forgot the times when the 3.5mm jack wasn't that popular, it's not everyone that remembers the 80s after all.
I do in other hand remember the annoyance of the mid 2000s and our phones having those stupid proprietary dongles. BUT: they were cheap since it was just analog wiring.
Now I'm back to mid 2000s with price corrected 10x the inflation, nice job. It sure looks like the FUUUUTURE to go back to mid 2000s.
Heck if we're going back then just gimme my dank PSP games and flip phones, I miss those! (also PSP has the jack too huehue)
[deleted post]How did can arrive at your conclusion? Would you mind explaining?
Who knows? Only time will tell really. Wait and see.
And whether you want to keep/remove the jack, only your money can do anything, nothing else. Vote with your wallet only.

Imagine how many people died on streets, roads and trac... more...The Internet and the high concentration of real stupidity has made me numb to sarcasm and irony, so I can't really see if this is a joke or not.
Anyway I'm laughing hard at it so I hope it IS a joke. The funnies part of the joke is that since Bluetooth headphones have their own amp inside, they're in many models actually louder (or WAY louder) than the phone's headphone jack, making the "dying by headphones" thing even worse.

In my country almost every day someone dies due to listening music and not hearing car train bus etc.
CptPower, 21 Jan 2018To be honest and i am always honest it is. Yillions of people walking in streets these days ... morePeople have eyes lol, when you cross a road you look left and right,earphones don't impair your sight, you put out some funny comments lol.
It's a false economy, plain and simple. I don't want to sit there and daisy chain dongles off my phone! It's meant to be a MORE convenient device, not less. Bluetooth is a power hog as well, and I am NOT running the risk of having my phone run out of juice when 1. I rely on it as an alarm 2. I use it during the day and need to have a full charge in the morning. Blocking off the charger with an adapter is a huge mistake, it's an absolute joke. Apple seems to be a fan of removing ports in favor of all this daisy chaining, and it looks ugly and is cumbersome. Just leave the jack!!
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2018Some are scared of change.. I remember a lot of resictance towards the removal of physical keys..LOL more of these types of ridiculous examples. Removing the keyboard really did give us something in return, didn't it?
But removing the 3.5mm jack is a compromise in the name of...well, compromise itself. It gives you nothing. It's like the removal of dedicated sim slots by most manufacturers. Mate 10 pro doesn't even have a hybrid slot. Mi 6 doesn't even have water-proofing.
They/you can give tons of stupid excuses, but in the end it's being done doe to evil and insanity. No good, valid reasons.
