7 smartphone trends that were terrible ideas

Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

Smartphones have been around for over a decade now. In fact, the first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1, debuted 10 years ago today. It's not surprising that the category has seen some pretty horrible trends in that amount of time. We've compiled seven of the worst ones we could think of in this post, a couple of which are (unfortunately) still ongoing.

Weekend poll: Would you buy a smartphone without a headphone jack?

Sunday, July 29th, 2018

Back in 2016, we asked our readers about their feelings when it came to the still nascent trend of removing the headphone jack from phones. At the time, collective opinions were firmly against the concept, but 2016 was two years ago. Not two months later, Google would be cracking jokes at Apple during its Pixel launch event about the phone's "satisfyingly not new" headphone jack, blissfully ignorant of its coming hypocrisy.

First, they came for your phone’s headphone jack—is the USB port next?

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

When Apple released the first iPhone without a headphone jack two years ago, many - critics, consumers, and competitors alike - were quick to cry foul. The decision was widely derided arrogant and unfriendly, and CMO Phil Schiller took a well-deserved beating in the court of public opinion for calling the removal of the 3.5mm jack “courageous.”

Imagine, then, what would happen if Apple was to remove the charging and data port from the iPhone entirely.

Essential’s second modular accessory is a headphone jack

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

Essential is one of the many smartphone makers that has eschewed the headphone jack, but what's this? You can get your headphone jack back thanks to Essential's modular accessory ecosystem—an ecosystem that will consist of two devices as soon as the new headphone jack adapter comes out.

Essential announced the headphone jack adapter as part of its new partnership with MQA and TIDAL. Owners of the Essential Phone can get a 3-month subscription to TIDAL, and you might want headphones to enjoy that.

HTC won’t include a Type-C headphone adapter with the U12+

Monday, May 28th, 2018

HTC is going out on a limb with the U12+, which starts at $800 and won't be sold through carriers. You would expect to get all the bells and whistles when you spend that much on a phone, but HTC is cheaping out on the accessories. This phone lacks a headphone jack as so many others do lately. However, the U12+ won't come with an adapter for your 3.5mm headphones, either.

Sony’s pass-through 3.5mm dongle for the Xperia XZ2 breaks quick charging

Saturday, March 10th, 2018

Unfortunately, the trend of removing headphone jacks from smartphones isn't ending anytime soon. Sony revealed its new flagship devices at Mobile World Congress last month, and among other major changes, there is no headphone jack to be found. Sony will include an adapter with those phones, but if you need to charge and listen at the same time, the company is more than happy to sell you a more complicated (yet still terrible) dongle.
