Google: See, we can remove basic functionality from our hardware and then sell it back to the customer at a huge markup too!

Android users:  Yes.  And we can continue using Samsung phones too.

hashtag.acronym: rooftop235: Well Fark the pixel.
I use my headphone jack. Assholes.
And bring me back the got damned ir port!
I guess I'll not be giving up my HTC m9 for a long time.

I'll stick with my G3 -- headphone jack, micro sd, ir, and removable battery.  I won't buy a new phone if all y'all offer me is downgraded features with a slightly faster CPU and GPU.


But really, who needs micro SD, IR, and removable battery? Those are all unnecessary (and in some cases undesirable) features for the average user. I have an iPhone 7+ and a MacBook Pro. When I go out for the day, I just throw them in a bag and go. There's not a single cable, charger, or memory card in my bag. People want simple, wireless stuff. I don't want to manage my memory, buy a micro SD card, carry extra stuff, and I sure as shiat don't want to charge and keep track of a second battery.

I for one welcome our new sealed-battery no-headphone-jack overlords.

netringer: I ordered the Pixel 2XL128GB during the event and also will pass my Nexus 6 on. I'll mostly miss wireless charging.


Guess who is embarrassed to just now find out his Nexus 6 has wireless charging!

This guy.

But really, 3 years later and the battery goes a couple/few days. I can't really complain.

rzrwiresunrise: This seems a tad premature, unless they've invented wireless headphones with 15 hrs of play time per charge.


The Beats Solo 3 headphones do up to 40 hours on a charge.
