re: Google Pixel 2 - Live Event - Starting at 11 CST
Just ordered a 2, mainly so I wouldn't have to wait 4 months to get it if I waited for 3 weeks to order it. It says it will be delivered on the 18th or 19th of Oct.

Didn't they say it ships with some kind of adapter? Also, I don't use headphones much, but what's the big deal of no jack? Is it that headphones become much easier to lose? Or is it fear that the bluetooth will malfunction?

I love it, no headphone jack and a very high priced XL. Where are all the complainers at?

I don't get all the outrage, either. I said the same thing when Apple got rid of it (and I'm no Apple fan).

That port is decades old, it takes up too much space in today's phones for the amount of functionality it provides, and it's hard to make dust- and waterproof. It's time to retire it.

charging headphones is annoying?
sound quality is better with an AUX port?
square readers use headphone jacks to accept payments?

i use my headphone jack all the time, and now ill have to buy a square reader adapter to swipe cards for business purposes

so ya for me its pretty damn terrible

It comes with a aux adapter. It supports hi-def USB-C headphones as well.

You have options. If you want your aux port, you can have it.

Yep, he said it in the presentation.

USB-C
Here's a question (and I forget the technical terms), but the Nexus 5X featured changed/impaired functionality via the USB C interface. e.g. You could no longer plug it into a car and have shite play on the sound system - it no longer allowed info to be conveyed that way. Is that true of the Pixel and now the Pixel 2 as well?

I haven't heard about anything changing from that. Most cars are either using straight bluetooth, or paired with android auto to where you don't need that usb connection.

Edit: I think you're talking about the 6p?

Became an issue when the bluetooth on my 5X was malfunctioning. I've heard that LG devices in general have had trouble. I'm excited to come back to HTC, which made my first 2 smartphones I ever owned.

That decades old port is still universally used and nowhere close to being obsolete. I'm sure the charging port is just as hard to make dust and waterproof as a headphone jack so why did they keep that?

So? Many old techs have been replaced while they were still universally used. This is a time of transition. There are adapters to help people through it.
quote:

You're going to have to give me your definition of "obsolete", because it seems like you think that as long as something still works, it's not obsolete.

There is newer tech that replaces the functionality of the port entirely, in addition to providing many, many other functions, in a smaller package. How is that not obsolete?
quote:

Because until wireless charging and data transmission are comparable to wired as far as speed and reliability, phones need at least one port. Would you prefer to seal one port or two? Why make a breach twice as likely?
