Wink, wink: OnePlus heavily hints at the OnePlus 5T boasting a 3.5mm headphone jack
by Peter Kostadinov / Nov 01, 2017, 8:37 AM
OnePlus just posted an image on Facebook that heavily implies its next smartphone, which is believed to be the OnePlus 5T, will retain a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.
We mean, it's only logical to assume that since the whole premise of the image is to highlight the fact that all of OnePlus' devices so far - the OnePlus One, OnePlus 2, OnePlus X, OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, and OnePlus 5 - have boasted the good ol' audio jack on deck, allowing you to plug in any standard headphones. With a tagline of "What do our phones have in common?", OnePlus is asking the important questions while simultaneously shows half a dozen of headphone jacks, leaving nothing to imagination.

There 3.5mm is poor sounding, at least the should do something like V30

^ You mean the ear buds, nor the 3.5mm jack itself.

No, I believe he means the jack (DAC) wasn't high quality. I owned a OnePlus 5, and DAC was good but wouldn't touch the DAC/output of the v30. In any case, every mobile fan should be happy to see a manufacturer keeping the 3.5mm headphone jack, even if the quality of the DAC isn't there.

Even though Apple doesn't have 3.5mm jack, they sound much better with lighting port

While lighting port and USB c audio (in theory) sound better than 3.5 jack, you do lose the ability to charge while listening to audio. Also a lot of people still have a lot of 3.5 jack gear they don't want to use with a converter.

Not true my experiences. I did a side by side test with my 6S Plus, and I can tell you with full certainty the audio output of the iPhone 7 Plus with either the lighting headphones or adapter is worse than the 6S Plus with the jack. BGR also did a test on this using the adapter:http://bgr.com/2016/09/20/ipho
It really sucks because I'm a huge Apple fan. Everyone here knows that. But getting rid of the jack was one of the their worst ideas since Steve left.

The 4th phone from the top looks like a cool design? Which phone is it? One+III? Would be a guess. That's the design I was hoping for the iPhone 6. Just a 5.5" iPhone 5S. Would have been awesome.
