Coming back to this article in 2023, someone at Sony definitely realized that this was a HUGE mistake! Sony could have just continued by not putting the headphone jack for the 2020 Xperia 1 Mk2. But alas, they didn't. It really shows that not all new trendy ideas are better than the old-yet-effective ones.
And let's not forget one thing for those people here who always say that headphone jack and microSD card support are outdated and irrelevant: Cloud storage servers are still using magnetic tapes FFS! Do you still use VHS tapes to watch videos? No?
Sony..pls also ditch type c port for more seamless design.
Sony don't forget to put a notch on your phone too, if you want to keep up with the trend..ok?
what a nonsense! Come on Sony, I thought you are not just another mainstream copycat company.
Of course we want the jack!

First the Nokia doesn't go into android business few years ago because they misjudge the trend, while Sony dont miss the 18:9 ratio trend and also dont miss the wireless trend.
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2018Positive thinking: maybe these removing 3.5mm jack trend is to be people to use less headset, ... moreI don't use a headphone. I use that port to connect my phone to my car's stereo so I can hear navigation, music and speakerphone more clearly.
Dave, 15 Mar 2018Notches and the lack of the headphone jack are the cancer of the mobile industry. This needs t... moreIt's not screw apple for setting ridiculous trends, but rather "screw the copy-cat android manufacturers for following apple's ridiculous trends".
Especially since that iPhone X isn't even a success. These idiots follow the trend if a commercial flop! How stupid is that?
AnonD-4254, 17 Mar 2018Sony are not trying hard to reach their true potential.
And its not about this 3.5mm jack, ... morevery dumb way of thinking. because nobody is buying mp3 players anymore and nobody who buys a phone is like damn i dont want a tv.
they are either holding back for the best phone yet or just being bad.
Sony are not trying hard to reach their true potential.
And its not about this 3.5mm jack, its about everything. They are holding back just so that their digital cameras, mp3 players, TVs, etc. can have smooth life, but they don't realise that each thing has its own market....
They must give their best in mobile market, irrespective of what it causes to other related products.
Because... SONY TOP EXECUTIVES DENY TO ACCEPT THE REALITY! Did they learn from Nokia mistakes whose CEO said we did nothing wrong but we lost? Nokia CEO back then said did nothing wrong? Blind man!
Come on Sony, I am your fans who switch out from Z series to S8 and now S9 just because YOU DIDN'T LISTEN TO US!
Do not know what is going on with Sony,they should fire the product manager..
no 3,5mm plug but they give in the box a dongle that costs 2x as much.
AnonD-742751, 16 Mar 2018Well I guess I can scratch Sony off my list as a contender for next phone, after HTC failed me... moreWhy settle for them.... The lgv30 kicks ass ✌️
Such a unexpected excuse, my 9yr old brother can give a better explanation than that sony has lost its grounds no more turning back to this device.
Here lies the remains of a loyal user since sony xperia pro gen.
Luckily LG and Samsung aren't sheeps like Sony.
Sad to this from a company where audio stuff is a part of IT...
the device shows no 3.5mm HJack so why bother giving MH750 hphones which have 3.5mm plug?
Actually I accept the seamless design for a reason remove the 3.5mm jack for Mirai designs, and also the wireless charging, just a request release a wireless power bank then it could be better to not use any adapter. So user can charging both the phone and wireless headphones while listening music, remember must adopt the Qnovo battery charging technology or the Mirai battery technology.
SZTadir, 16 Mar 2018People who have stayed with Sony till now have every reason to be distressed about this new de... more100 % agree with your opinion. Sony did a terrible mistake which might cost them mobile division...

Such a ridiculous and illogical move simply can't be explained and every attempt to explain it would make anyone look like a complete lunatic...
Well I guess I can scratch Sony off my list as a contender for next phone, after HTC failed me with their new AUXless phones. I guess OP5 or Sammy.
