The debate about whether the smartphone can exist without the headphone Jack, began at about the same moment as the scene showed the iPhone 7. To connect the headphones to the smartphone, it was necessary to use the adapter. Well, at least he was included. After that, many smartphones began to emerge without connector. Many acted on the principle “what, you?”, at the time, as others wanted just for PR, because in that moment about smartphones without mini jack told all and Sundry. Even now there are devices produced with this connector. And while you can manage to buy them.
Personally, I think that the absence of connector in the phone is not a reason to abandon its purchase, but rather an occasion to discover the wireless sound. Let the skeptics continue to say that the quality of this sound is not more than gasoline in the tanks of the Tesla, but it is really a convenient and modern way of sound reproduction.
To say that the quality drops sharply, is not necessary, since the codecs and formats that support even the most inexpensive wireless headphones allow you to stream audio so that 99.9 percent of ordinary users will not notice the difference with a wired method. Further in the case included the issue of quality headphones, which has little in common with the connection method.
I long ago switched to wireless sound and all advise the same. Now the difference in quality between models of the same price category, but with a different connection type, not that big. But the convenience covers all minor imperfections, if they will.
If the connection wire of your all, here are a few devices that are still available with a headphone Jack, which, hand on heart, is unforgivable much space in the already tightly stuffed body of a modern smartphone.
- 1 Samsung Galaxy S10
- 2 Huawei P30
- Xiaomi Mi 3 and Xiaomi Mi 9T 9T Pro
- 4 Realme X2 Pro
- 5 Asus Zenfone 6
Samsung Galaxy S10
The entire series last year smartphones Samsung Galaxy S10 supports wired connection of headphones. This is despite the fact that the smartphone supports reverse charging, convenient for headphone and almost useless in other cases.
Included with the smartphone are Bluetooth headphones. This brand is owned by Harman Kardon, which a few years ago I bought a Samsung. The circle is closed.
The smartphone runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets 855 9820 or Exynos depending on the region. Also it has protection from water and dust according to IP68 standard and 1 TB of internal memory in the maximum version.
There’s even a fingerprint scanner in the screen, but I have it not impressed. In response he reminded me of one that I met in the version of the Porsche Design on the basis of Huawei Mate 10. It does not work quickly and do not always work. The updates improve matters, but not so much that it could compete with many other similar solutions on the market.
Unlike Huawei P30 Pro, which I think is one of the best smartphones of last year, it averaged version of Huawei P30 was equipped with a headphone Jack. The elder brother in contrast was working with headphones or via Bluetooth, or via USB Type-C.
The smartphone in all its versions turned out very nice. Largely thanks to him, the company is still able to overcome the difficulties that she developed since the middle of last year. She continues to produce analogues of the versions of this smartphone, which are still very relevant, but it can work with Google services. In my opinion, this is a very elegant solution and the “margin of safety” of this smartphone has allowed the company to stay afloat in the international arena. I’m not even talking only about the mobile unit, as for the main telecommunications operations of the company was dealt a blow.
Huawei P30 is equipped with a powerful chipset Kirin 980 and a 6.1-inch display. Fingerprint scanner works better than the Samsung Galaxy S10, but the company has definitely overdone it with proprietary memory cards. Although, why they are needed, if the built-in memory enough as it is.
On the back wall is three cells, and on the front a neat cutout in the display, which I still value more holes. This applies not only to this smartphone, and in General to displays.
Xiaomi Mi Xiaomi Mi 9T and 9T Pro
To smartphones Xiaomi I have a somewhat ambiguous attitude. I apologize in advance to fans of the brand. I respect your choice, but can’t share it. I first encountered these smartphones a very long time. Then they were not yet fully commercial project and was covered by a halo of romance, rebellion and movement against the system that did not accept beginners into the club wolves.
Then some models I really liked. For example, Mi 5S. Something was in it. BEFORE him also was a good model, but it I liked more than others. Then came Mi 6 and off we go. I liked him even less then a new model, but new in them, nothing appeared (sorry for the pun). Something new that was looked as something strange, and yet these problems with the naming and a large set of Redmi. In short, I did not go. But not to say that they have a headphone Jack, you can’t, because it is also the flagship.
Many will say that Mi 9T Pro is an excellent ratio of price and quality. I will not argue, I will remain unconvinced. For my money, he offers Snapdragon 855 (version Mi 9T will be Snapdragon 730), triple chamber (a maximum of 48 MP), edge-to-edge AMOLED display (6.39 inches, Full HD +), 20-megapixel frontalka the traveling, the fingerprint scanner in the screen, battery capacity of 4000 mAh and of course a headphone Jack.
Realme X2 Pro
Unlike the latest models from Xiaomi, the smartphone I was really pleasantly surprised. Not to say that he is the best, but for its price it has a very nice performance and very good running.
Most pleased with its performance and camera. They made a most pleasant impression, but did not fail and other parameters. For example, 12 GB of RAM and 256 internal memory at maximum speed.
In addition, it is equipped with a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 855 Plus, camera 64 MP and fast 50-watt Super VOOC charging that can fill the battery in just 30 minutes.
Maybe something he plays a super-flagships, but for my money he’s definitely interesting and it has a headphone Jack.
Asus Zenfone 6
The last unit that has a headphone Jack, which you can still buy and that stands out, I can call Asus Zenfone 6 with its interesting, but controversial camera.
Let me remind you, the camera of this smartphone does not leave, and leans back. That is, the main camera is converted into a frontalka. So you can save on an additional front module and no compromise that will fit in the short frame of the front panel.
The questions were only to the mechanism itself. When he couldn’t close, he started to dangle helplessly. It looked so-so and it was necessary first to close his hand and then she began to work normally.
The smartphone is equipped with Snapdragon 855, 6 or 12 GB of RAM and 64 or 265 GB of memory. Main camera sensor 48 MP, and shirik 13 MP. Personally, I have enough zoom. When I used a smartphone, I thought that it would be better to set it instead of the wide angle module as the main module, and so was fairly wide. But for the battery capacity of 5000 mAh, thanks!
