Just look at Pixel 3 XL, OnePlus 6 (T) and LGV40, all of which started this year. And even Apple made a less expensive screen phone with the iPhone XR, after turning off the trend of the iPhone X in 2017. Without the headphone jack, there is more room to hug in other hardware, and it also helps to bring screens to the fullest The edges of phones.
Samsung, the largest headphone jack, ruled out a 3.5mm port on the Chinese Galaxy A8s. While recent instances of leaks suggest that the upcoming Galaxy S10 will stay in touch, it is unclear how long Samsung can continue to push it into its flagships. Few other companies have enough technical resources to accommodate a 3.5mm port while trying to remove camera deposits and display frames. Sorry headphone jack fans, there is no return now.
And to be clear, I say this with great dismissal. Although I mostly use wireless headphones with my iPhone X (Libratone Track + and a variety of noise reduction taps), there is not a day when I do not miss the small gate. I feel cold every time I hang out with friends and can't easily connect the phone to older speakers or an aging car's audio system. I have several 3.5mm to Lightning dongles, but inevitably, they are never around when I need them. (It's really outrageous that Apple doesn't even include them with new iPhones.)
At least, the increase of all screen smartphones is somewhat ; First, we achieved nothing by losing headphone contacts. Phil Schiller's notorious "counter" mark seemed to be an excellent answer to dumping the gate, but in the end, Apple explained that it needed more space inside the iPhone 7. Still, it retained the iPhone 6S fat screen inserts and didn't add any important new features to it. to justify losing the jacket. Motorola, meanwhile, said it needed to dump the jacket to make the Moto Z so thin. It was an attractive phone, but the deal wasn't worth it.
When Google's Pixel 2 arrived, a more useful reason to dump the jacket came. Google Product Manager Mario Queiroz told TechCrunch that it was about "establishing a mechanical design path for the future." It's likely what Apple did with the iPhone 7, too. "We want the screen to go closer and closer to the edge," Queiroz said. "Our team said," If we are to do the shift, let's do it faster, rather than later. "Last year [201

It may be difficult for wired headphone fanatics to stomach on the go lose the 3.5mm port only for finer smartphones. But at least it is more tasty than it was a few years ago. One of the clearest issues early on was that you couldn't listen to music with a USB-C or Lightning dongle while charging the phone. Today, wireless charging is more ubiquitous, and some third-party accessories also allow you to charge and plug in a 3.5mm device. Bluetooth headphones have also come a long way, providing better sound quality, reception and battery life than ever before. Surprisingly, after many years of so many wireless noise-canceling headphones, the Sony WH-1000XM3 is now my favorite headphone period.
So dear audiophiles, it's time to continue. We finally have a reason to lose the headphone jack: gorgeous full-screen smartphones. For years I just wanted a reason to lose the headphone jack. Now we finally have one.
