Smartphone Manufacturers Will Do Away With The 3.5mm Jack

Mobile phones will slowly do away with the 3.5mm jack to replace with better tech.

Here are the true benefits of these changes, only engineers usually know and consumers really want the features the changes help with.

 

  1. Removing the 3.5mm headphone jack allows the phone manufacturer to:
  2. Reduce thickness of the phone, the 3.5mm jack plays a huge roll in this category and consumers want thin phones with larger screen real-estate
  3. More room for a larger battery allowing longer battery life
  4. Better waterproofing, when you have a 3.5mm jack, regardless of your waterproofing, there is not a full proof way of keeping water out of that area and the use of plugs will only make the phone bulkier and requires the phone to be thicker.
  5. Last but not least, it allows more space for better cameras which are a growing consumer demand.

There will always be the less expensive or off brand phone you can find with the 3.5mm jack but most of your top tech phones will do away with it completely. Obviously, change will be hard for some, but it’s necessary to make room for the future keeping up with consumer’s wants and needs.
