List of Phones with No 3.5mm Audio Jack Port

An absence of a particular feature on a smartphone might seem to be on the negative side, however, to some, this is a way to expand certain aspects of the phone and improve them thoroughly. With that, let’s take a look at some of the handsets that lacked a 3.5mm jack and uses USB Type-C or lightning port instead, but might still be actually worth the buck.

We love to hear from you guys. Share us your thoughts in the comment section below. Also, if you have any questions regarding this post or any other one, simply just hit us down in the comment section.

Motorola Moto Z

The upcoming Moto Z is quite slim, with that, though, they had t trim out a few features, such as its 3.5mm audio jack for instance. However, dropping off the audio jack might actually be something more beneficial to the user since they’ll be getting a more thin and slim handset. The Motorola Moto Z also has a bunch of decent specs in hand that can carry out the phone, which is just an added bonus on the phone.

Motorola Moto Z Force

The more premium Motorola Moto Z Force seems to offer up a few interesting upgrades, such as a better rear shooter and bigger battery capacity. Like the original Moto Z, the Motorola Moto Z Force also lacks the audio jack slot, which might sway away some headset users over the device. Nevertheless, the Motorola Moto Z Force has a lot more to offer than meets the eye and is surely worth the attention it’s getting.

LeEco Le 2

Sadly, the LeEco brand isn’t exactly well know here in the Philippines, though this Chinese smartphone company has recently made a splash in the smartphone industry thanks to their very intricate line of phones in hand. With that, LeEco recently introduced the LeEco Le 2 to the table, a 5.5-inch Helio X20 phone that seems to pack a serious punch in the specs category. Sadly, though, the Le 2 lacks additional storage support via microSD, which kinda lowers the phone’s capability to find a market. The LeEco Le 2 apparently also dropped the 3.5mm jack support, to maximize its slimness and size efficiency, which is to be fair, a very worthy trade.

LeEco Le Max 2

A more premium handset under the LeEco belt is the Le Max 2. The handset is a massive 5.7-incher that runs on a very formidable Snapdragon 820 chip. It also has a RAM option that maxes out at 6GB of RAM, which is actually one heck of a massive feature alone. The Le Max 2, like LeEco’s recently introduced handset, also abandons the 3.5mm audio jack for the sake of handling efficiency and slimness, though it feels like the phone alone is a capable performer that a lacking of such particular feature won’t decrease its overall usage efficiency.

LeEco Le 2 Pro

The LeEco Le 2 Pro is a more upgraded version of the original Le 2 and packs a better punching power than its original version. First off, this version carries a bigger 4GB of RAM and better camera shooters, though sadly enough, both the Le 2 and the Le 2 Pro both only has a 3000mAh battery capacity, which to us, felt a bit lackluster. However, the upgraded shooters and RAM capacity seem to only be the differences of the two, as Le 2 Pro also dropped the 3.5mm jack.

Oppo R5

For this entry, we have to go a bit back in time and take a look at the Oppo R5. The Oppo R5 was considered as the first smartphone that removed its 3.5mm jack feature to maximize its slimness. Many considered this a bad call back in the day and many even criticized Oppo for making such a bold move, though the Oppo R5’s decent line of specs and attractive slimness took everyone by surprise and nevertheless, the aspiring Oppo R5 survived on its time. Right now, the Oppo R5 is still being offered by online stores nationwide and if you’re willing to get one yourself, then you can personally check at how slim is the smartphone that was once considered the “slimmest phone in the world”.

Apple iPhone 7

Apple’s soon-to-arrive flagship, the iPhone 7 has been the talk of the town for quite a while now. The reason is that the handset might actually be abandoning the 3.5mm audio jack since the phone would be focusing more on its slimness and its expected waterproof feature. Nevertheless, whether your a fan of the idea or not, it is likely that Apple will pull through with the plan, though the Apple iPhone 7’s specs lineup seems to compensate for the audio jack’s absence since it seems that it has better features and upgraded specs that surely fit the next generation Apple flagship phone.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus

The more premium iPhone 7 Plus also brings a few personal surprises on its own, such as its dual rear camera shooters and a massive 256GB maximum internal storage option, though like the iPhone 7, the iPhone 7 Plus might also leave out the 3.5mm audio jack slot. The bigger and better iPhone 7 Pluss seems to be the better pick from the two upcoming iPhone flagships and as the days go by and we slowly get close to its expected reveal date, things are really starting to heat up on these two well-known flagships.
