So I see the New Google Pixel phone has no headphone jack

I'm waiting for all the people that rushed to make fun of Apple for doing this to jump in and make fun of Google... or Motorola for their no headphone jack...

Waiting...

Really? I have half a mind to go back to a flip phone so I don't really pay attention to new phones. What is with this trend of paying more for less proven features?

Still holding out myself. Phone bill is $9.99/month.
Honestly, it's getting more difficult now with some tickets and things going digital only. I wouldn't be able to get away with it if my wife didn't have a smart phone.

I find it funny because some of the original Pixel ads stated something along the lines of "look at us we still have a jack" type of ads. Only to eat their words....

I have a Moto Z and the whole no jack thing is idiotic. That said I got it on sale for $150 so I deal with it. It's a good phone otherwise

I was going to trade in my Pixel for a 2 but the headphone jack stopped me. Honestly it's not really an improvement IMO. Same battery, same size, same screen, same storage, .1 more MP camera, .15ghz faster CPU, no headphone jack.
