Not only technology, but also marketing, base on Motorola ferrari footsteps
Team of gsmarena, please do some testing with the Pro thing directly in Paris. We want to see how it works in low light and if it´s really better than the competition. Thanks in advance.
So proud of huawei. Owner of p10 and i love it. Also happens that i bought an iphone 8 today because p20 no ip67 or68 so i gave up

I still agree that we should have the option for separate ports, and with new phones lacking a 3.5mm connection I will be forced to buy a Bluetooth-to-3.5 receiver so I can connect it to my car and listen to music while still charging my phone (or risk the battery dying out during navigation). When it comes to headphones, I personally use wireless ones to avoid the fuss altogether.

I can think of a few family phones, where the port has become less reliable. My daughter, for example, has an iPhone 7. No headphone jack, and she is a regular headphones user, means that after 6 months, her phone no longer charges reliably. With a headphone jack, she would have had far less wear. I'm an adult, with an office job, so I have less need to use the headphones jack, so perhaps I could cope without the jack. My personal daily driver is a 950xl. It is a little old now, so the battery is not as robust. But the thing charges flawlessly, still. Possibly because for the first few years, I rarely needed more than an overnight wireless charge. My 920 still charges fine from the wire too.

Wireless charging? Amazed Huawei don't add it. In fact, I am amazed that all flagships don't have it. The Pixels, the HTCs, Huaweis, all omit a cracking feature. With so much extra wear on the usb port, due to omission of headphone jack, you would think it would be the obvious thing.
