what's the fucking point

they never even sold the 5a in my region anyway

fuck google and fuck apple

why the fuck are you acting like it's 5 years ago bro. The pixel 3 didn't even have an audio jack. Why would you need one now that bluetooth can do lossless?

I really don't get the obsession over the jack. Six years ago /g/ had daily threads "reminder this is keeping phones from being any thinner"
Notches are a massively more annoying problem as are small batteries, poor battery health management, not supporting common LTE bands, hell even removing SD card support is a more insurmountable problem.
for audio there are at least three viable options I've used other than 3.5mm, BT, USB wireless adapter, type-C to 3.5mm adapter
>>
>>86937044
and I say this as a person who ONLY buys phones with 3.5mm jack but only coincidentally. I never use them. ROG Phone and Xperia are superior for many reasons but have 3.5mm jack is the least of them
>>
>>86937044
I wouldn't mind no jack if phones had two usb-c ports
Not being able to connect headphones if the phone is charging is absolutely retarded

what appleniggers are doing is inexcusable, but it also was an eye opener

The DAC on a phone isn't strong enough to power good speakers properly anyways 3.5mm jack or no.
You'd actually get better audio quality over a usbC connection to an external setup.

no because they usually keep very tight restrictions on retailers to not sell product x in region y, due to licensed distributor monopolies etc

my main problem is that they're using the old camera sensor from the 3/4/5 Pixels again.
and google tensor seems to have very sketchy connectivity and battery life.
also their software is buggy.

what's fucked up is the only reason companies got rid of the 3.5 jack is because they wanted to make the phone slimmer. they folded over the screen connecter and that cut off the jack port so they got rid of it. Literally the only reason. slimmer phone = no headphone jack

>>86946683
and iphone 13 is 7.7mm. So no, this has absolutely nothing to do with thickness. Nor waterproofing. Galaxy s5 debunks every argument about removing the jack and making battery unremovable.
>>
>>86946683
regardless of whether the phone got slimmer or not, the jack was removed because of the screen connector. what everyone else does is of no consequence.

Folding screen connector did not improve thickness, it's an arbitrary design decision.

the "wireless" transfer requires proximity, wastes more wattage, and heats up both the sender and the copper coil reciever.
corpo says it's the coil that heats up and not the battery but real life says the entire phone will heat up if you leave it "wirelessly" charging for more than an hour.

I was just thinking about buying a 5a in a country that never got it. They're both the equivalent of $449 USD which gives me no incentive to buy the 5a anyway regardless if it has a 3.5mm port.

Having a shitphone without 3.5 or not liking dongles is not an excuse to use bluetooth.

My 1993 amp doesn't have Bluetooth
Neither does my audio mixer, and some other stuff audio stuff
Digital is temporary, analog is forever

Yeah that seriously pissed me off, I wanted to upgrade from my 3a but the lack of a headphone jack is really making me confused, even if I skip the 6a the headphone jack will only become less and less common each year. I don't see any other decent picks though for a budget of $500 or less that will get me 3 years of updates.

instead of taking the 3.5m jack away and getting people to walk around with lithium batteries in their skull why didn't they just make wired headphones with batteries in that could charge your phone?

I think they still release annually, so a new version should be coming up. No idea if it'll be a smallish model again.
