I’ll be honest: I wasn’t really planning in letting Google any further into my life and my phone anyway. So this is merely validation:
Google’s just-announceddon’t have a headphone jack. The 3.5mm connector is missing.
It’s not on the top, where Google placed it on last year’s Pixel. And it’s not on the bottom either, where you’ll find the USB-C data/charge port all by its lonesome. The audio jack is simply gone. Google just pulled an Apple — deleting a port that’s still common to find in millions upon millions of devices.
Also: I love Amazon, love their services, but their phone kind of sucked as a phone and I’m much happier with my Samsung. I was not really convinced that Google was going to do better with their own branded phone line. And since they apparently want to take directions from Apple when it comes to Bluetooth earbuds, again: validation.
