And there goes my decision, that my next phone would be manufactured by Sony.
Probably part of Sony, that manufacture their Bluetooth headphones, had this bright idea.
The last 3 phones I bought from Sony came with Bluetooth headsets,will not miss it.
Z3 Compact with MDR-ZX750BN
XZ with MDR-XB950BT
XZ1 Compact with MDR-1000X.
AnonD-27765, 22 Jan 2018It's a step forward to a totally portless and wireless future. Even dongles will soon be obsol... moreI dont like wireless earjack. It uses battery. Becoming a battery hog to your phone when connected. It is great and all being wireless but our main problem is always battery.
I just really, really hope (!!) this is all about implementing 4.4 mm jack and balanced wired stereo headsets from their hi res Walkman series on a smartphone...
That could explain moving standard 3.5 mm option to USBC with dongle....
Then it must be the world's slimmest phone. Be positive.
And if it's not, then the hell with Sony.
Such an idiotic trend. Apple makes money with 3.5 mm removal all others keep losing customers.... And they never learn from each other. Sony will die for me the same day they release phone without 3.5 mm jack (until better alternative is in place).

Anonymous, 22 Jan 2018You tooo Sony, nooooooo Please dont let this be the new XZ Proam with you bro,hope sony didnt remove the headphone jack,or it will be quite disapointment for me
SONY NO DONT DO IT

SAMSUNG LG AND SONY WERE SUPPOSED TO KEEP IT

another reason for me to hate apple jfc
I liked sony phones the design was meh but they has something else going for them and they are innovative why did they have to follow this trend the one trend i didnot want them to let go
Sony just announced that it would focus on mid-range and flagship devices from now on and now its thinking removing the headphone will be a good idea for mid-range . really ? i doubt it and doesn't really care if its going to work for Sony .
