Your point?

Because if you have none, if all you wanted to do was post an image... then this thread is a waste of time.

It will come with an adapter or if you have bluetooth headphone you can use those. I think I read Motorola did away with the headphone jack a while ago on one of their phones.

Seems unnecessary to me unless they actually needed the space for something else. Buuuuut you know Apple, when it comes to their priorities, image is so high that actual function becomes barely a speck on the grass.
As a musician I would never use their stuff anyway because it makes listening to my own work too much of a chore. Even so, it makes me sad.

They used the extra space for stereo speakers for now.

Well, I can tell you one thing. To loud sound I have a home theater system. Especially cool to play shooters ) But it not like the neighbors curiously enough, therefore rarely used and basically headphones. Two days ago I went specifically to test the new headphones. Tried twenty it seems, on a good amp, at different settings, headphones cost from $ 50 to more than fifteen hundred. Wireless Hi-End too. Nothing, emptiness. Or I'm too used to my KOSS... I liked of course, Technics, but $ 900 is too much.

My 2 year contract came up a couple weeks ago. I was considering a jump from Android to an iPhone, and decided to wait to see if the iPhone really was going to dump the headphone jack. If they didn't dump the headphone jack, I probably would've purchased one. So, one lost sale. I ended up getting an HTC 10 yesterday.

I like HTC, but always need extra battery for it (although I have not tried this model). By the way, this smart phone has not only GPS, but also GLONASS. What are your impressions and the difference in your opinion?

As far as I can tell, there's no switching between the two. Instead, it uses both providing additional satellite coverage. I don't know what battery life is like yet, but charging is insanely fast. I plugged it in at about 50% and it charged to full in about 30 minutes.
