    Google is pretty determined to make their phones "simpler". No microSD, no removable battery, and now no headphone jack. Are you still going to buy it?

    You probably don't listen to music. Unless you have Bluetooth headsets and charging it all the time

    I have a BT headset. I get home from work and charge it .. Then take it the next day. Lasts me all day. I have actually gone 2 days with it .

    When asked Google said no comment

    You might like the new HTC, although HTC has been doing terrible because of headphone jack removal.

    I very rarely use the headphone jack, only when my headphone battery dies, and that only happens on really long days. I would be fine with removing the headphone jack on any phone.

    I do not buy a phone based on whether it has a headphone jack or not. That being said, yes I am still going to buy it even though I know absolutely nothing about the new model. It is a Pixel and that is good enough for meツ

    On a side note, old technology has to be shed from time to time to make way for new technology.

    The market seems a little 50 / 50 at this point on whether or not to include a headphone jack on their latest flagship devices. For right now, I think it's important for device OEMs to keep the headphone jack, not because we 'need' it but just have it as an option. 😃

    I personally use my headphone jack fairly often and it would be a shame to see it go but it wouldn't stop me from purchasing the next Google Pixel. I have seen USB-C to 3.5mm converters so that would help ease the transition.

    Headphone jack are very simple. Plug it in and it works. We've all loved that 3.5mm headphone jack ever since it was invented. Apple removed it because of money; they will make money from 3rd party manufacturers from licenses, and selling their own product. HTC did it because they wanted to improve sound quality. However, LG was able to improve the quality without sacrificing.

    By the way, being exposed to Bluetooth all the time is bad. Who knows what would happen. Did you see the video of everyone calling on their cell phones all at once? Yeah popcorn pops.

    Being exposed to cell phones would be worse then, right?

    No, a cell phone is not next to your brain on your head for an extended period of time. I prefer wired headphones instead of invisible rays beaming through my head, thanks.

    I'll still be interested in it. Sounds like removal of the headphone jack will be more and more apparent in phones going forward.

    I'd use bluetooth headphones to sync if/ or when I did listen to music on phone. That isn't to often.
    I didn't listen to music,, to often with wired headphones either.

    You're one of the few. Many will be disappointed the 3.5mm universal jack is gone. Just cause some people don't use it mean it should be eliminated.

    If the quality of music is important and you have X$'s for headphones I believe you will find wired headphones to be vastly superior to Bluetooth of the same price.
