Google said it was taken out to make way for a bezel less future. But wheres the proof of it? The Pixel 2 has the same ugly bezels that the pixel 1 had. The Pixel 2 XL has a somewhat better screen but it still doesn’t feel like a proper excuse to remove the jack as there are still huge bezels on BOTH sides. Should they should have kept the jack on the Pixel 2 and removed it from the XL?
Apple says its to ease waterproofing and they simply didn’t have enough space. Yet they only achieved IP67 instead of IP68. But a guy on youtube proved its somewhat possible.
Again what I want to point out is competition has proven all this wrong. I’m no Samsung fanboy but it can be clearly seen that Samsung has the finest design out there. MicroSD, IP68, Headphone Jack, and a great infinity screen. They even curved the screen at the sides! So isn’t whatever excuse google and apple make invalid? Cause Samsung has already proven them all wrong way back in 2017 March.
What I feel like is manufacturers are making lazy excuses to just cut off the headphone jack so they don’t have to spend much time in making it work. This is what I love about Samsung is they go all out, no compromises. Wireless charging to headphone jack they load their shit with everything they can find.
