When more and more smartphone brands abandoned the 3.5mm headphone jack for more available space, Honor 10 has been launched with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
For those people who still prefer the 3.5mm audio jack, it is definitely a good news. The newly released OnePlus 6 keep the 3.5mm headphone jack as well. According to OnePlus’ co-founder Carl Pei’s statement, he does a Twitter poll every year and the number of people taking part increases each time, this year there ware over 19k votes, and 88% said they like physical headphone jacks. We can make a conclusion from these poll result that a lot of people still need a 3.5mm headphone jack. We can’t judge whether the 3.5mm headphone jack on a smartphone is necessary or not. But at least, OnePlus and Honor’s decision meet some people’s requirement.
Keeping this 3.5mm headphone jack, Honor not only lost a chance to make its phone further slim, they also gave up the high water-resistance possibility. Honor 10 didn’t come with an exact IP rating, but it doesn’t mean Honor 10 isn’t waterproof. You can find the answer about its water resistance here. Honor is trying to offer smartphones that has everything you would expect from a high-end device at a much lower price than the competition. Honer 10 has a 5.84 -inch screen, 2,280 x 1,080 LCD, delicate notch and color-shifting glass body, which is eye-catching. You will also get Kirin 970 chip (with 6GB of RAM), a 3400mAh battery and an extensive camera array –there are 16-megapixel color and 24-megapixel monochrome cams on the back, and a 24-megapixel selfie shooter on the front. Such a phone even has a 3.5mm headphone jack. It may be your perfect choice.
If you can accept wireless headphones, I wrapped up some good rated wireless headphones for the new Samsung flagship phone.
1. TaoTronics Wireless 4.1 Magnetic Earbuds $25.99
- Built-in magnets let you attach the two headphones together when not using, and wear like a necklace around your neck, a convenient way to carry around when you don’t need them.
- The rechargable long battery life means you get 5 hours of continuous music, or can relax with 175 hours of standby time when powered with a 5V external charger.
2. Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones Over Ear $39.99
1. This item is passive noise isolating, NOT active noise cancellation(ANC), it can’t cancel the noise completely but it won’t drain the battery and damage the sound. As an additional factor of sound quality, it is better than ANC.
2. The closed-back design provides immersive Hi-Fi sound with CSR chip and 40mm driver together. If you care more about Noise Cancellation than Sound Quality, you may consider other alternatives
