Samsung S8 will NOT have a HeadPhone Jack

Recommended Posts

Not really. If you compare similar quality wired and wireless headphones, they come out to be about the same. To adhere to a silly notion of a jack making things better is exactly how tech won't develop.

And how much do proper BT IEMs cost? Not talking anything spectacular, let's say similar in quality to $20 wired ones.

Gotta sell mode dongles fams , oh and power banks. A power bank fixes all your problems  ofc, one for your phone, one for your smartwatch, one for your Bluetooth headphones and lets not forget one for the stick up your ass.

Apple wasn't the first company to ditch the headphone jack.

Also, most audiophiles I know either have a much higher quality PMP, or use an external dac/amp anyway.

It doesn't matter who did it first. The one who 'popularized' it was Apple and its super obvious Samsung is following suit just as they did with the phone design.

 

The audiophiles you speak of must have never left the house. Yes, external dac/amp, but on USB type C? You're not fooling me. 


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

Shocking!

Personally I don't care. I don't use any super expensive headphones on my phone that are 3.5mm and would need a dongle. Also those that do could afford new ones no problem if they hate dongle. And Type-C headphones will start to appear more and more.

It goes in through the 3.5mm jack, yes, but I'm sure there are USB solutions as well.

Most use PMPs. Because, as they put it, phones are shit for audio.

I'll be honest, I never looked into BT head/earphones since I've no interest in them. Are they really on pair with $20 wired, let's say KZ ZS3?

That's not bad at all. How much data?

I pay $480/year for unlimited calls/text and 2GB of data a month.

I use about 300MB a month thanks to BHN having hotspots everywhere. My work phone though is unlimited everything since connecting to the hospital server takes a huge toll on data.

Ahh must be nice!

I have a buddy that has 13GB of data between his personal and work phones. He still goes through it all every month.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Good thing I've never liked samsung phones to begin with.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Samsung devotes though good luck with that. I just hope Sony and HTC wont follow suite (i doubt they will).

If I recall HTC's next device was rumoured to do this waaayyy before.

This is just speculation at this point. They presented zero source or evidence in the article.

 

All they said was "we can exclusively confirm". Literally anybody can write that.

Once again Apple's market presence is forcing change in the industry.

 

It won't be long before every laptop will be pushing the USB-C standard as well.

Now, this I am okay with. They're actually moving forward somewhat by using USB type C, unlike Apple who use a proprietary connector, simply forcing users further into their ecosystem. 

 

What we need now is for them to use 2 USB C ports so we don't need adaptors to charge and listen to music at the same time. 

Ehh, agree. Would be nice to see Apple ditch lightning connector for USB-C. The only reason they created Lightning in the first place was because all the other available connectors were terrible, so now we have USB-C it would be good to see them embrace it a bit more. 

 

That said, it's not a big deal since their entire lineup use it, so they have a universal connector for all their devices. Where the Lightning cable trips over itself and falls down the stairs is USB-C to Lightning, since Apple only bundle USB type A with their products.

Apple get a pretty substantial kickback whenever a company creates a device using their lightning connector, so I don't see them adopting USB C in favour over it. It seems strange that they've gone all out on USB C for their laptops, but still use the lightning connector for other devices. Apple has pulled some really stupid moves recently.

USB Type C is going to become the standard, though. It just needs the big companies like Samsung to take the plunge and fully adopt it. There's going to be a transition period of dongles and adaptors, yes, but eventually most things should use USB Type C.

OR you can have both USB type-C and a headphone jack so everyone has the ability to use the phone fully. Want to get USB C headphones? They're available. Still using a 3.5mm jack? Things still work. Jumping straight to a "standard" when you have no products available to use it is idiotic.
