The only thing that should in the bottom is a huge nigger cock in your ass. The headphone jack belongs on the top of the phone, it was only moved to the bottom because phone manufacturers are literally out of ideas, and they can only remove features, increase the number of pixels, are make things worse in some other ways.

Why would you not put it in your pocket bottom up? I don't fucking get it. Drives me a bit insane how people have this mindset. Like you somehow think your phone doesn't like being upside down?

>> No.80502997

>People who believe wired audio is deprecated are literally retarded.
Idiots do not realize that you can't remove the DAC or amp(usually in a single audio codec chip) inside the phone without removing the speakers too. A jack costs like 30 cents at most to put there. You lose nothing by having a jack. Why someone would like to have less options is beyond me, it's not like wired and wireless audio support are mutually exclusive.

i just got a fiio q3 and i would LOVE a phone case that holds that dac/amp. I have a note 10+ so theres definitely enough real estate on the back to make it work even if bulky. better than strapping rubber bands to my phone at work lmao

there are lenty of IEMs in the 500-$1k range that don't need a lot to drive, hell theres plenty of over ear headphones with only like 32ohms in that range as well so easy to drive.

instead of forcing this wireless bullshit on everyone whats the fucking problem with making dedicated audiophile phones with maybe an actual amp in there, basically a PMP/DAP with a phone antenna, most them run android already anyway.

The "standard" bluetooth audio is SBC. You venture into vendor lock-ins the moment you want something better. Meanwhile 3.5 was a standard before bluetooth audio even existed.

So everyone need to pay a markup for high quality audio that they will never use, only because YOU don't want to spend money on appropriate gear, is that right ?
Why do you dumbasses want audio quality to rely on phone hardware ?
IF you want hq audio, just buy high end speakers/headphones, with all the high end hardware required bundled inside

If there were TWS with that didn't hiss, drop connection and were tuned exactly to my liking I would be using them but alas. Got Qudelix 5k because that's pretty much the most reliable way to get system-wide parametric EQ. Before that I was using Viper, but it had some issues. Until the short cable arrives I'm stuck with this contraption.

I can put my phone in my pocket top down or bottom down and rotate it upright instantly as I pull it out. Makes no difference. I prefer the jack on top so my fingers aren't touching the end of the wire as I use the phone.

You have your fingers on either side of the phone and lift it. It is in your palm with your finger ready to be unlocked.

I didn't realize anyone thought it was possible to put it in bottom up. It seems awful.

Anon, I had one until recently. Audio was decent, not gonna lie - stock was nice, root+jamesdsp bumped it up a notch.
Battery was a blessing, esp. on A9 (Around 15-16hours of watchin 1080p video offline, ~9h of jewtube on cellular, ~7h of ps1/psp emulation with a DS4 connected).
Also those airtriggers were something I didn't know I need - a true blessing if You use flashlight a lot + can trigger tasker too.
Just dont cheap out and do Yourself a favor and get the 512/1tb version. Chink versions tended to have issues.
As for future proofing - if You get the 512/1tb global version (look for Republic of Gamers written on the back, not Tencent), You should be set for the next few years - just get a spare back glass and a battery for later down the line to save Yourself some hassle if You really plan to use it for few years Anon.
Also - if You're from US, and want VoLTE, You'll need to root and enable it.
TL;DR Yes, its a great phone.

Why can't they just put three gold-plated contact points on the phone somewhere, and an adapter to 3.5mm attaches with magnets? Then real estate inside the phone is saved, and the phone itself can be sealed against water inrtrusion.

If you have phone with buttons, do you hold it on the screen end of the phone? No, because the keys are upside down and they're even fucking printed the right way.
Your phone has the microphone on the bottom and the speaker on the top, the way the phone is supposed to be held.

This is the right answer.
Could implement a plethora of attachments this way... from jack to xlr, and even add sensors and triggers the same way.
Also phones need 2 usb ports.
This needs to happen.
