I nodded so much while reading this I now have whiplash.
I have never seen anything as blatantly anti-consumer as taking out the headphone jack in the smartphone hardware world.
It makes me angry just thinking about it. I won't buy a phone without a headphone jack.
@Alonealastalovedalongthe I still have an old phone and really don't want to upgrade because of that. I use my phone for listening to stuff more than anything else.
