There’s been some angst recently about the slow disappearance of the once-standard mini-plug (3.5 mm) headphone jack on mobile phones.
Apple was first, moving to a Lightning port while also touting wireless connectivity. Samsung ridiculed Apple for that move but has since moved in a similar direction. And it seems that most of us are okay with it, too.
A company called Ting recently surveyed 3,000 Americans on what they looked for in a new mobile found and found that just 1% were concerned about their next handset having a mini-plug headphone jack.
So what features are important?
- Price (35%)
- Operating system (iOS vs Android) (30%)
- Device specs (14%)
Interestingly, camera quality didn’t resonate, nor did battery life, storage space, and cool factor.
Time to consider some new Bluetooth ‘phones and ‘buds, huh?
