Another one bites the dust. OnePlus to remove headphone jack from 6T

Bezelless characteristic. Apple's 10th anniversary bezelless iPhone rumours began in 2015 itself. 

Even then, it's not an explicit copy because it's a general design idea that anyone can use. 

 

A Sharp phone from 2014 had that bezel-less appearance which was then emulated by the 2016 Xiaomi Mi Mix. LG also launched the G6 before the S8 was unveiled. The Google Pixel 2 XL shared that similar design ethos with the S8 too. 

 

If anything, it was after the release of the iPhone X that everyone copied it, specifically that notch. The only holdout in the high end space as of now is......Samsung.

Huh? OKay, death of 3.5mm jack on phones then

Even Apple doesn't decide that because not many people actually buy these expensive flagship phones (much less a $1000 flagship!). Most people prefer cheaper mid-ranged ones.

 

Many of which still have the 3.5mm jack.

I think all USB-C are usable on ROG, so kudos to them. 

Not a single dongle afaik has a good DAC in them, correct me if I'm wrong. 

Note 9 has a Stylus, which is not small? Takes a lot of space. IPhone XS Max is few mm smaller, 4 I think. Has a bigger screwn than Note as well. And nor Samsung nor mentioned LG have notch, so it's a proper screen.

dual cameras

You mean the ones that LG G5 introduced? Wide or not, that was the first idea of 2 cameras.

Third, since you mentioned vibration motors, Apple's Taptic Engine is something everyone should copy. It's a lot bigger, but it makes 3D Touch convincing enough and the phone doesn’t vibrate like a 80s car

I personally wasn't impressed it by it on my gfs 6S, but that's just me. Some android phones have great vibrating motors, don't be fooled. Big name flagships usually.

The hell? Sharp was the one who started it. They released it in 2014.

 

Next thing you'll tell me that iPhone was the first to remove the headphone jack.

And no bezel. And a rather good camera if you use GCam instead of default shite.

As concerned Nokia... the thread count on every phone doesn't look good

Their CEO reached out on twitter how to get custom ROMs for it, people told him whom to give free phones for development and who to reach out to, he said no problem. We'll see. High hopes for that one.

Not sure, haven't look much into it, but I think Razer one and HTC too have a good one. Though also many phones with 3.5mm don't have anything special too.

How LG does it is nice, I wonder how they'll continue. Also wasn't the new LG phone going to have notch though? V series? And was thinking about iPhone as far as display measurement, doubt they have the largest screen cause they measure it wrong, they measure the extended display by the notch. Which is wrong cause where the notch is that part is not a display, I don't count those display ears by the notch as part of the display.

Quite a bit still, though. 

 

It was more for a functional purpose rather than aesthetics. It was much more obvious too compared to the S6's generally more subtle appearance. 

 

I still faintly remember using both the Note Edge and the S6 edge+. They were awkward to hold especially since I used them naked 

Tbh the note edge was a test platform for the curved edge and its swipe functions baked into the already impressive note series.....And I loved every minute I used it until I lost it and got a pixel xl as an upgrade. So I agree, quite a bit different to today's curved bezel-less displays. Mines wasn't that bad to hold, tho I do have bigger than avg hands I guess.

You're joking, right?  It does go its own way in many areas, but this is the company notorious for waiting to see what Apple does and then knocking out an equivalent.  Fingerprint readers, dual cameras, NFC payments...

NFC payments, fingerprint readers and dual cameras are an industry trend, not something one company introduced and the other companies copied.

There is one thing that most of you aren't considering - the huge variation in Type-C port standard.

With issues like this, switching to USB Type-C is a crap-shoot. You'll never know what you're getting out the box. Until all USB Type-C ports are of the following base spec's:

  • USB 3.1 or higher (data transfer speeds)
  • either DisplayPort+Ethernet, 2 PCI-e lanes, and/or Thunderbolt 3
  • at least 12W of power transfer, for decent charging speeds
  • built-in circuitry to detect device electrical requirements

And all smartphones start coming with features like this:

  • NFC (not all phones have this feature - I would know this)
  • bi-directional wireless charging (phone can charge itself and nearby *paired* peripherals)
  • (true 4G) LTE and above, along with 802.11a/g/n or 802.11ax

I'm not touching Type-C only devices with even a 12-ft. pole. Even if you get a dongle, it's not guaranteed to work as expected. This is a major issue, and pretty much kills the idea of USB Type-C being the magic bullet that we had hoped it would be for the Android platform. The physical construction of the Type-C port lends itself to certain issues as well. As of now, I'm not convinced that we can ditch the headphone jack. Besides, there are peripherals that still depend on that jack, other than just audio equipment (as noted by a friend I just talked to on Discord)...

Apple can put a 3.5mm jack if they wanted but they won't because that's how they usually end up strong arming the industry forward (Floppy, CDs, and now all non-c and headphone jack)

 

Any company that thinks it's their job to strong arm the industry forward rather than giving consumers the choice is not doing us any favors, they are a dictatorial company forcing what suits them best.

Welp, probably wont be buying a 6T then. I wasn't exactly expecting to but I really loved my 3T before it died. I really wish OnePlus wouldnt just re-use the oppo chassis and not mill out a fucking headphone jack hole. Oneplus exists as a separate company for a reason, it doesn't need to be literally the same product

I guess that's how they save costs? 

 

By using a chassis and tech their parent company made.

They could mill a fucking hole in it. If they still had the flagship killer price I could believe that excuse

Eh. OnePlus has mostly been nothing but an absolute joke in my eyes sans the OP3/3T.

This is exactly why they do this. They know that everyone is going to hate on it, yet only a negligible percentage of people who hate it are going to be turned away by it.

Don't believe me?

Its the end times. The headphone jacks lived in harmony until the Apple nation attacked.

 

 

Someone needs to draw up a 3.5mm headphone jack waifu and/or loli to save the headphone jack.  Only they can save us now.

Maybe if people’s displeasure in the removal of the headphone jack was measured in sales, rather than selling more iPhones than every before, things would be different. Business dictates where technology goes, as this indicates the most consumers like the change.

But that's an iPhone. An iPhone is a popular mainstream product. People will buy it regardless of change because they feel the pros outweigh the cons.

 

OnePlus is different in now they're a little more niche by comparison. They're typically bought by people who like high end hardware at a more attainable price point and are usually more knowledgeable and want that sort of stuff. So removing the headphone jack when they've actually been one of the better phones for audio lovers out there comes out as a bit of a dick move. 

 

Basically, many iPhone users don't really mind. But many OnePlus users are annoyed.

I hate the dongle because you have to have it in order to use your 3.5mm earpods/headphones, so if you lose the dongle you have to use the phone speakers or bluetooth sound devices ( assumed you have it with you ).  The dongle for 3.5mm sound devices is just too stupid to me, but Apple making tons of money out of it. Bluetooth sound devices are good alternative if you hate carry a dongle and your favorite 3,5mm earpods/headphones, but the problem with bluetooth sound devices are it easily run out of battery and your phone battery will suck up more juice from using bluetooth.
