So it begins: these three new smartphones do not have 3.5 mm headphone jacks

It'd be understandable if you haven't heard much about a smartphone maker that goes by the name LeEco. It's a large tech brand in China, formerly known as LeTV, which currently has a couple of phones bound for US markets, but doesn't seem to have any stable footing in the West as of yet. It has, however, managed to get itself noticed on a couple of occasions — by openly calling Apple a Nazi opressor, by launching a "bezel-less superphone", which very much had a bezel, and by trying to be an industry first on a couple of occasions — the LeTV One, One Pro, and LeTV Max were the first smartphones with USB Type-C data ports, while the LeTV Le Max Pro was the first announced (note: not launched) smartphone to bear Qualcomm's latest-and-greatest Snapdragon 820 chipset.

I'm getting away from wires anyway. Bought one those Bluetooth adapters for the car and works great. By the time I get around to my next vehicle it will have Bluetooth.
